Blue cheese

Today we started the day with a 5km run/fun event for the group. I was going to try running the full 5K but the humidity and heat is really demanding so I did not really run all the way but with some help I would say I did run 5K in total.

It was also a port day and I went on an excursion in Jamaica!


We went around a bit in a bus and ended up at a haunted “Great House”.


After the house we went to a nice beach and I did actually take a swim today too… I could get used to this…


I did not have anything to eat during the day so I was a little hungry in the evening. I had a nice crab cake for starters


and a lot of beef for main.


For dessert the waiters had gone totally crazy. I have asked for blue cheese on my cheese plate. Today they got all cheese that had on my “little” plate. I did only eat 25% of the cheese…

First day of the cruise

Today we boarded the Allure of the Sea. This is a huge boat… I thought the Independence and Freedom were large boats. But this is really big. I am on deck 14 and I try to use the stairs but I am already getting a bit sceptic about running from floor 3 where the conference center is to my deck…

This is my cabin.


And some pictures from the boat. More will follow.






We tried the Windjammer buffet for a small lunch…


before going to our welcome aboard cocktail party.


For dinner I had a nice starter of smoked salmon and seafood.


The main was salmon with butter and also some extra broccoli.


For dessert I had cheese…

Pre cruise dinner

Early this morning I went for a run. 4,7KM at a ok pace. I did my run along a roan and then back again. I did not want to get lost among the similar looking streets and houses…

After some relaxing by the pool…


…we went to the mall again. Lunch was at the food court and I had chicken and ribs with broccoli. Really sweet sauce and we managed to get quite a lot of butter…


In the evening it was time for the pre cruise dinner at the hotell. It was a really good buffet and I had both beef and salmon. Some mozzarella, cauliflower and tomatoes.


We got a goodi-bag “full of” carbs. I did try some of the quote bar stuff. I really do not like them… They taste strange.

Kobe burger

This is the view from our room. On the other side of the water you can see the Sawgrass Mills Mall where we spent the whole day today.


We had brunch at the food court and I had some sweet chicken and really nice veggies.


The result of the shopping was two shirts, one pair of shorts and two pairs of jeans.


For dinner we met up with Hanna and Sebastian and the had scouted out a nice place with great burgers. I had a Blue cheese burger and replaced ordinary beef with Kobe beef. I also had some coleslaw and extra mayo as side.

LowCarbCruise 2016

Today I was traveling all day. In total a little more than 24 hours door to door.

First train to Stockholm/Arlanda. Then a plane to Newark. The food on the plane was OK regarding taste. We had a pork chop with some kind of sweet sauce. I did not eat the mashed potato, bread or dessert… I did eat the cheese and butter…


Before landing at Newark we got a snack… I ate the small amount of surfing in a wrap… Nothing else…


The landing is always nice at Newark where you get a look at the New York Skyline…


At Newark we had dinner at a place where you order on an iPad. Pretty nice setup but quite chaotic with a lot of adds all the time. It was a little expensive too…


I had a really nice steak and salad and also managed to get some extra butter.


On the flight to Fort Lauderdale I had a little snack bag so the carbs got a bit high.


The total intake for the whole day was

Tomorrow we will spend some time at the pool area at the hotell and then we will go to the Sawgrass Mills Mall. The mall is in “Swedish walking distance” from the hotel.

A lot of water

For some reason I drank a lot of water today. First almost a liter at work and nor I finished my thrid 50cl bottle of sparkling water. I have no idea why. Normally I might be at around 1 liter liquid total for a day. Now it was 2,5 liters. After all the sparkling water I feel a bit “blown up”… Oh well, I guess it will come out again… 🙂

For dinner today I hade a couple of large pork chops with blue cheese and butter.

A day at the Zoo

Today we spent the day at the nearby Zoo (Kolmården). We got a special tour since the zoo is not yet open for the season. We got a close look at a lot of interesting animals and the guide was really good.

For lunch before the tour I had cod in red wine sauce, some veggies and butter.

16 0425-TommyTappar -25042016-IMG_7091

For dinner I made a simple soup of:

  • 300 g shrimps
  • 250 ml coconut creame
  • 1/2 onion
  • 1/2 orange paprika
  • 1 tsp red curry paste
  • salt and pepper

To get a bit more fat I put a large lump of butter in the soup.
