New reason to DO IT

We're going to St. John (U.S. Virgin Islands) for our anniversary in July!!! Bathing suit vacation!

We realized a few days ago that we could fly there, rent an amazing house and a car for a week for the same amount of money we would spend to just rent an apartment in Catalina (off the coast of LA)...unbelievable. So we've canceled our place in Catalina and are now going to the Caribbean!

I am so excited. Neither of us has been there before. The majority of the island is national park so there is not a lot of development. And, of course, we chose to stay on the LEAST developed side too! ;-) The view from "our" house looks amazing and there is snorkeling (my favorite) galore all over the island.

So...every time I want to eat or drink something "bad" now, I think "bathing suit photo". It's amazing how powerful that is to get me to STOP.

I told DB maybe we need bathing suit vacations twice a year to keep in shape... ;-)

Yay, I'm glad it's official! We'll be able to dish about our trips in the same year. How fun. I need to get busy & get my food straightened out. Really don't want to go to STJ with all this flab on my bod. We can keep each other on track!

Ooh, how fun! Do some research and see what's fun to do. Great deals!

We are going to Disney Land in July. I will never be a beach babe. I just want to take off the twenty pounds I put on. I would like to sit in an airplane seat comfortably. I taped the size of the Delta seats in coach to my fridge. Very motivating. Your trip sounds mavelous. Cheers

I like that idea...bathing suit vacations to stay in shape, twice a year at least!!! Happy for you..that's exciting!!! Now we really gotta do the Drastic. We did it before and we can do it again..I am not planning any groovy trips, but I need to get back into those shorts from last Summer.....and like how they look.
