Settling In

Oh 80 degree weather, I miss you. We got back from vacation/wedding time yesterday evening and I've spent the day today settling back in. I love the lingering smell of ocean water, sand and hotel rooms in my clothes.

I've spent most of the day catching up on my blog reading, unpacking, organizing, working on to-do lists, and making turkey chili. I'm ready to get back into the swing of things. I've got 22 weeks before my wedding dress is being made and that is 22 weeks for me to lose weight and get into better shape.

Thats the thing about going to the beach, for me at least. I always notice exactly how much I neglect my health and appearance. Wearing a swimsuit seems to highlight all of those insecurities I spend most of my time trying to cover up. It feels nice to have a slight tan right now.

I'm ready to get serious about this. Here we go. See you tomorrow.

Cute pic!
I always take good resolutions when I'm at the beach and realize just the extent of the "damage" LOL.
Good luck for the wedding preparation!
