Thank goodness.. another week is done.. which means we are another week closer to leaving! I know.. I cant make up my mind. First I am stressed out about the whole thing, and now I am being impatient. The truth is , my husbands brother called yesterday. (The one who is already there) He was bragging.. not really.. but when someone mentions that they are sitting on the beach watching the waves roll in while enjoying the warm 80 degree weather... while we are sitting inside to avoid the freezing wind outside... grrrrrrr. He described everything to us.. and now I am SO excited to go that I can hardly wait. One more week.. I think.. and we will be able to go. WOOOOOOOOHHHOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Yesterday went well. Didn't cheat too much on my diet... had a little too many carbs.. will have to watch that today. I am still having a problem drinking enough water.. for some reason I just cant swallow it. No excersize again , but will make up for it this morning. somehow.....

the girls are feeling better today.. in fact they are getting into their normal morning trouble routine.. so I think we are back to our old selves again. Ahhh.. kids!

Okay.. so my new short term goal is to lose 10 lbs before the new year. That way I will be under my 200 lb mark.. I really need a new tea pot when we get to the island. I just need to be strong... my weak point. LOL I can be so competitive, but when it comes to myself, I just give in.. why? Well, not this time.. I am going to lose this fat, I am going to win this race... I am going to be HEALTHY!!!

It isn't the big pleasures that count the most;
it's making a great deal out of the little ones.

I haven't been up on my blog reading and missed why you get to move to the island... but either way I'm so excited for you!!! 80 degree weather and the beach? A dream come true! And it will be great for excercizing... walks on the beach, maybe a bike ride? Who knows?! Hang in there and you'll be there before you know it!!

I like your attitutde re. cheating, that you didn't cheat too much. When I get to "cheating," I tend to lurch into a full fledged and hideous binge. Yaaaaaay for you.
