It's finally summertime and I wake up on a gorgeous, sunny morning in Santorini, Greece. My boyfriend and I hike to one of the gorgeous, black volcanic sand beaches here on the island. We are staying at this amazing bed and breakfast and have just enjoyed a traditional light Greek breakfast of yogurt and honey with fruit.

When we arrive at the beach, it's pretty secluded. Only eight or ten others, but everyone seems to be enjoying the gorgeous summer day. I take off my light cover tunic to reveal my super hot swimsuit: a black tankini that I'm not falling out of. :-) I've also brought a purple tankini, but I left it at the B&B. Jonny and I enjoy a wonderful day of fun in the sun and splashing around in the water.

For the rest of our vacation on santorini, it's pretty packed with fun activities: hiking the caldera to see the ancient volcano that formed the island, roaming the marketplace for souvenirs, and of course sampling the amazing local seafood. Gyros for everyone! And every night, we watch the sunset (one of the most amazing views in the world) before heading out dancing in the many clubs.

As I enjoy the sun and the culture, I look over the last seven months. I worked hard to get here. I scrimped and saved so we could afford it. I planned. But the most important thing I did to find myself here was believe in myself and stay consistent in working toward my goals! I knew I would do it!

I am in Bora Bora, staying in a villa built over the crystal clear turquoise water.

There is a beach close by, but for now I'm enjoying the private deck off of the bedroom suite. The resort is one of the best in the world, and my fruity cocktails are never empty.

I am with a gorgeous, extremely rich man. Maybe him:

I have an amazing new swimsuit for every day of the week, of course. Here are a few of them:

There will be plenty of lounging and reading, but I want adventure! Kayaking for sure and lots of walking and hiking. Of course we'll snorkel - we can do that without leaving the villa, practically! We'll swim every single day. Ooh, and tennis! The resort has courts. Finally, we will go on a 4x4 safari and a jetboat tour. Adrenaline! :)

I was successful mainly because I refused to quit. But intense cardio and regular strength training really helped me shape my body - get rid of the blubber and define the muscles.

When you wake up, it's June 1st and you've achieved your goals!

Where in the world are you? Tennessee

What amazing beach are you on? I'm going to a waterpark or a lake with my boys

Are you staying at a posh resort where the pool boys keep your margarita full, or are you somewhere secluded and quiet? It's a crowded water park with lots of families and fun

Who are you with? My boys

What's your super hot swimsuit look like? What's your other super hot swimsuit look like? They're both 1 piece suits WITH NO SKIRT...They are brightly colored and/or patterned (no more trying to blend into the background)

What are your plans for the rest of your dream vacation? Will you lounge by the pool with a great book? Will you snorkel, scuba dive, para-sail, jet-ski, ride horses, hike to the top of a volcano? Go out dancing every night or hang out by the fire-pit on the beach? I will be active and outside. My family will go hiking and camping. We will have campfires, read together, play, and just have a great time

When you look back over the last seven months, what was the single most important thing you did to reach your goal, which lead to this paradise?

It's our last week-long challenge before we dive into the good stuff that will have us rockin' our awesome bods in our awesome bathing suits next June!

emoticon Now it's time to DREAM!

Close your eyes. Feel the warmth of the sun on your face. Smell that coconut tanning oil. Hear the ocean waves hitting the beach, lulling you to sleep....

Imagine every detail, then plan your trip as if you were actually going. Look at locations and hotels and adventures and bathing suits. Post pictures to your blog or on a vision collage.

THIS is what we're working towards! This will help you get out of bed on those dark, cold mornings when you'd rather stay in your warm, comfy bed. You CAN and WILL do what it takes to get to that dream vacation!

(And be sure to describe it to us here, or post a link to your blog.)
