The old bait and switch
Sunday, November 08, 2009
My mums been trying to get my husband and I to go on a family vacation for the past few years. I would have agreed sooner, but it's always a destination designed for my brother's young children and we kind of feel the parent pressure from everyone in that situation. (specially my sister in law, believe it or not, who really wants cousins for her kids..)
This year, we all agreed to go to Cabo, Mexico to a nice resort where there are plenty of activities which include us all hanging out, spending time with the kids, and alone time for me and Adam as well.
A few weeks after we agreed, my mum called us up and told us she switched the reservations from the resort in Cabo to Disney world. Very sneaky mum. So come mid December we'll all be shipping out to Orlando.
Okay, so it's not a big deal, and we'll make the most of it, it's just not out cup of tea, if you know what I mean. I guess we'll go to Cape Canaveral for Adam, the space geek, and maybe have a dinner dancing cruise for me. More importantly, it's giving me a specific goal deadline to get into bikini shape.
So I am giving myself 7 weeks to drop 10 pounds. It's the most ambitious goal I've ever given myself, but seems to be a viable one. Might as well make the most of it!!!
