Cruise to Mexico!

No screen shot for yesterday (Note to self: Call Apex!) Dave took me out to dinner last night and I had Salmon with a baked potato and a salad. It was a great meal but I was super full. Almost uncomfortable but we went on a little walk and that helped.

Went to see my mom today. We always say we are going to work on her office and we end up going to brunch and then shopping or movies or whatever. We ended up going to Nordstrom Rack and Sears. I got a pink top with sparkles from Nordies and a Halloween shirt and purple blouse for work at Sears. They are 22s so they probably won't fit long but I needed something new and they were inexpensive ($15 and less) and yes I will take pictures. I need to update my progress pictures anyways :-)

My mom has decided she would like for us to go on a cruise to the Mexican Riviera for Christmas! We have been on this cruise before (2001) which goes to Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlan and Cabo San Lucas but the last time we went the ports were in the opposite order. She is getting an MRI per Dr. G on Tuesday and wants to know the results of that before she books it so it is not confirmed but I can't help but get excited about it. I would love to drop another 20 lbs. by then. It is from Dec. 19th - Dec. 26th. My Bodybugg is set for me to lose 17 lbs. by the 27th of December so I could feasablly lose 3 more lbs. right? It is 10 weeks from today so it would be 2 lbs. per week. The cruise to Alaska proved to be a big motivator. I wanted to lose 40 lbs. by the cruise (July '09) but I was able to lose 45!

Hope you all are having a good weekend. Until next time...
