Kevin and I were initially planning on attending his company's work trip in Kauai by ourselves. We went to Costa Rica last year (here and here) and had the best time.
However, his company was acquired this year and the rules have changed to include bringing the kids.
One quick call to my parents who have a a time share and it was decided that we are making it a family trip.
I. Can't. Wait. Even with my extreme (and totally lame) fear of flying, I'm ready to go today.
There is one thing though that is weighing me down.
I have 5 pounds on my body that I CANNOT seem to drop no matter how much carb dropping, calorie app computing, and exercising I do.
My body has hit it's happy place and doesn't want to budge.
It doesn't help that I'm on a gazillion meds for lupus that cause weight gain.
Health....weight....sometimes I feel like it is a hard call.
Since Kevin and I both want to drop some pounds, we came up with a competion. The person who reaches their Hawaii goal 1st gets 1 whole Saturday to themselves.
OH man I want that Saturday!
So I'm doing the stuff I usually do since I'm kinda a healthy gal to begin with....organic food, whole foods, etc. I am trying to increases my water intake and decrease my portions.
As a last resort, I may even give up my coffee creamer since it is toxic and full of empty calories.
I feel sorry for my family if that day comes.
What about you? What are you doing to be healthy in 2012. Notice I said healthy and not skinny???
Happy weekend, friends!
