Woke up this morning to cool weather! What a blessing after the extremely hot days we’ve had recently – and no, I’m not complaining about the heat, because if it hadn’t been so hot, I wouldn’t have got to go to the beach…in my sassy, new, blue bikini 😉
Now, many of you know that I lost 15 Kg (33 lb) last year when I wrote this post. Well, I’ve lost a few more Kg’s and it was finally time to show off my new curves at the beach. Not only am I looking gorgeous (okay, granted, I need to work on the tan a bit), but I’m also feeling so great. Like I said, in 2013 I am going to be more positive.
I did get a bit of colour (mainly on my shoulders and back), and for it to last, I can’t stay in the sun for hours, nor be in the sun every day, so that’s why I’m thankful for the cooler weather…so I’m not tempted to overdue things.
Later this afternoon I’m off to have coffee with Carmen and another friend of ours, Mary, whom I haven’t seen for ages! She is back off to varsity early next week, so this catch-up is going to be fabulous, I just know it! It’s the last weekend before I go back to work, so I’m going to make the best of it (and finish James Patterson’s Zoo (it’s one of the books I bought last year. Yes, I’m already working on my 2013 bucket list). Monday it’s back to the routine (which I’m glad about too, I haven’t been in the gym as much as I’d have liked while I’ve been on holiday, but I have to drive past there on the way home from work every day, so I don’t have an excuse NOT to go…) I’m looking forward to going back to work, to seeing my colleagues – after all, they’ve become special friends too.
Whatever you and yours do today, make the best of it – be grateful for everything and don’t forget to smile!
