Cruise2Lose: Weight for it

Home/Cruise fitness, New ships/Cruise2Lose: Weight for it

Those of you who followed my exploits last weekend in the AquaSpa and fitness centre on board Celebrity Silhouette may be pleased to learn that I am keeping up the good work this week on Carnival Breeze.
The gym is not quite as extensive, and my first attempt to do some serious work in there was frustrated because it was crowded with passengers hoping to win $500-worth of treatments in the Cloud 9 spa.
But I have been back, and have followed the programme set out for me by personal trainer Chris Arnott. The pounds continue to fall off, slowly, despite the temptations of Breeze’s Cucina del Capitano, where I ate last night, and the seriously naughty offerings from Guy’s Burger Joint.
Even the Plain Jane burger came with a cheese topping, but I substituted lettuce and tomato for the decidedly greasy fries (that’s chips to you and me in the UK) and I left the bun untouched. I’m still using the napkin to polish my halo.
An even bigger test will come tonight in the Fahrenheit 555 steakhouse. I’m determined not to make it three nights in a row for a plain grilled salmon main course. And whatever happens, come the first sea day as we sail from Salerno to Dubrovnik, I will be sampling the pulled pork sandwich at Fat Jimmy’s C-Side BBQ.
For now though, the results of my new regime remain under wraps. All will be revealed when a feature on my dietary exploits is published in Cruise International magazine.
I will return to the subject then, to disclose how many more pounds have dropped from my frame, or whether I lost the battle and am back to my bouncy old self.
