Vacation is good for the soul and the tummy!

Happy almost Summer!



We just got back from our first family and friends Summer get away. We went to Blythe, CA, well kind of, we were about 20 miles north and right on the river! It was fantastic! We got to spend some great family time together as well as some very fun adult times with our friends. I even convinced myself that I was "cheating". We enjoyed a few treats and it felt great to just let up on ourselves a little bit. It was so rejuvenating and soul nourishing. I normally do not look forward to Summer as it means...a bathing suit! This year, even though I am not exactly where I would like to be, I am MUCH more comfortable in my own skin and I am being kinder to myself. I think these 2 things are at least half the battle. :D I am looking forward to our next trip and I am even alright with being in a bathing suit! 







As of today, I have lost a total of 42.1 pounds ( 1 of those, lost on vacation! ) and I feel about as fabulous as I can at this point. I am working out at least 3 days a week ( KettleWorx week 5 ) and feeling better all of the time.


I am so appreciative of all of the support that I am receiving daily from my awesome husband and all of my online and real life friends.  

Have a wonderful rest of your week and BE KIND TO YOURSELVES!

  1. That is wonderful! Great job on losing on vacation. This whole thing is such a mind game, and when our head is in the right place, it is so much easier for our tummy to be too:)
