Home and settled this morning at laundry central. I didn’t plan this post, but felt I should share that my weigh-in this morning was a mere 4.6 lbs up from exactly two weeks ago. If you read along this cruise, you know that I fully expected double digits. I literally ate anything and everything I wanted for most of two weeks and refused to put on the brakes. So this is a huge victory for me and I absolutely credit it to using the stairs. The first day I determined that on a small ship where 8 decks is the most I’d ever have to take at one time, there was simply no excuse, for me anyway, not to do that. The last couple days I did have to relent some because I was growing quite sore. I’d like to figure up an average steps per day, but haven’t determined a good way to get that data from Pacer yet. I would guess its around 15k steps a day with a lot of those being on the stairs.
Thats my good news. If you are a cruiser and concerned about weight gain, seriously consider forgoing the elevator as much as possible. Its worth it.
