Polar Bear Swim - 1 Year Later

I'm back! Sorry it's been so long. I will start my normal posts tonight. I have some great recipes to share with you that I have made over the past two weeks!
Update on my WW adventure: I weighed in on Sunday and am finally back to my goal (well over by .4 pounds but I will take that!). So now comes the fun part of maintaining it.
Yesterday I did my annual Polar Bear Swim! My friend and I decided we were going to wear hula skirts for the jump this year. I started thinking - "you can't wear a hula skirt and a one piece suit." So I was going to buy a two piece. I tried it on and looked at my stomach and thought no I can't wear this. However with the hula skirt up on my waist you couldn't see my stomach so I figured I will just borrow a bikini top rather then waist money on something I will never be comfortable wearing.
Then my brain started to rethink things. If I buy a two-piece it will be my incentive to work out and tone more. So I did. I spent $40 on one that I liked and said this is it, now I have to work out! With that being said my new goal is to work out at least 3 times a week. Baby steps... If I say everyday I know that wont' happen. So let's start with 3 days and we will work up from there. And by this summer I WILL feel comfortable enough to wear it in front of people.

    1. Glad to be back! Yes I have been very busy and have now figured out how to fit me time in again. Thanks! I felt great wearing it - It's been 7 years since the last time I put a bikini on!
