So . . . Thursday through Sunday . . . I was here:
(Tulum, Quintana Roo, Mexico)
So. Freaking. Amazing. I was up at 6am every morning . . . awakened by sun, birds and the sound of the ocean. I strapped on my tennies and went for walks and jogs on the beach every morning. (I didn't run barefoot because of jellyfish, and these guys:
SO CUTE! But will pinch ya if you step on their little hidey holes. And there were TONS of them!!!)
I ate fresh fish and shrimp, drank water and sunshine, swam in the sea (how could anyone resist that beautiful water?) and got a tan (you can kinda see it in the photo of me. I'm UBER tan there! heh. Shutup). It was just what my head needed.
Now I was at the beach with quite a few INCREDIBLE bodies. But instead of letting that get me down, I let it inspire me. Sitting in the most gorgeous place on earth whining and moaning to myself that I didn't have the body I wanted wasn't going to do me a DANG bit of good. I have to work for what I want. I know this.
So instead of letting that keep me in my street clothes . . . I happily jumped into my swimsuit (plush body and all) . . . and cavorted on the beach. Sure I wobbled a bit more than everyone else. SO WHAT! There were naked ladies on the beach. NO ONE was looking at me. LOL
But I made myself a promise. Every time I go back? Less of me will return. EVERY. TIME. Until I'm one of those hot bodies on the beach in a itsybitsy teenieweeney bikini! (yellow doesn't look so good on me, polkadot or not.) ;) We'll see if I ever get the courage to go topless. That all depends on my hard work. :D But I won't rule it out!!
Anyway. . . so that was promise #1.
Then I came home and got busy again . . . ran last night, P90X tonight
(check out THIS upper body ST workout. I mean . . . YEAH BABY. No cardio here. . just workin' my musckles . . . not too shabby.. . .
And tomorrow, I'm gonna take another step up. (AND PLYO. . . Plyo better look the eff out!)
Then I went through my clothes. I have 4 items that I need to get back into ASAP.
1. pair of blue shorts. They never quite fit me, even when I was at 199 . . (juust about) . . my goal is to have those shorts LOOSE by the time I go home. (end of May/early June)
2. the green shirt from my photo page (with the black skirt lookin all shmexy). Again, this will be LOOSE by the time I go home.
3. Pair of AWESOME wide leg trouser jeans. I'm *almost* in these . . and I'd like to wear them before it becomes UNBEARABLY HOT here. (I mean seriously. You don't want to put on clothes it gets so hot here . . just breathing makes you sweat. Jeans? HAHAHA yeah. Not till DECEMBER.) So I'd like to wear them this summer. Loose and baggy with a belt!! (and possibly get them taken in!)
4. The coolest jacket ever. This is quite tight on me, and will be the last of the items to fit. BUT IT'S AWESOME:
Oh yes. I will wear this jacket. I will turn heads.
My first finish line is the end of May.
Set . . .
EDIT . . . *runs back* WHOOPS! Weigh in!
After a week off of P90X and 4 days at the beach (with not perfect eating) . . .
I was down 1 lb.
I'll take it. NOW FOR MOAR!
*runs off again*
