Day 107: Vacation booked. Eek! That means bikini time!

I’m starting to feel like a blob again.  We have had 12 straight days of 100+ degree weather so I admit that I have not been running in weeks.  It is very hard to be motiviated to go outside when it is still 96 degrees at 10pm.  However, I am afraid that despite the intense heat I really have to get off my butt and go work out.  We finally booked our vacation (yea!) for a cruise to the Bahamas this fall for our first anniversary.  I was so excited.  Then it hit me: cruise equals bikini.  Yikes!  Nothing like being 1.5 months away from the Carribbean to motivate me to eat even healthier and work out.  I tried on my swimsuits again and noted my problem areas: tummy, thighs, butt.  They do look somewhat better than before, but they are not how I would like them to look.  It would take a lot of work in Photoshop to fix these vacation pictures.
