The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Okay, there are many of these. I do love the changing of seasons. It is always very refreshing and energizing to me. I love Spring, with the exception of the pollen and my allergies.

I am loving this Spring especially since it is Sawyer's 1st Spring. I can't decide whether or not to take him to Ash Wednesday services tomorrow. I can only go over my lunch break and kind of hate to disrupt his day.

I have been thinking a LOT about this summer. We are so excited to take Sawyer to the local pool. He has a couple of little swim shorts all ready to go. Who is not ready? Me. Uggh. I grew up close to the beach and no matter what size I was, I have never been thrilled with how I look in a swimsuit. Looking back I do regret not being happy with myself. I am trying to get over this and just say that it is what it is. I know I need to lose the baby weight and honestly haven't done too much about it. I want to lose it so I can be healthier and to fit in all of my old clothes. I am going to go on an Adkins - esque plan that I have used before with great results. It is just really hard to give up my favs -Coke, sweet tea, potatoes (all kinds), oh AND desserts (all kinds).

I was a bit down a couple of years ago - not being able to get pregnant, our house renovation nightmare, work, and I had packed on the lbs. I went on this plan and lost 17lbs in less than 3 months. I did it once, I have to be able to do it again, right? It is getting started. Can you say procrastinator?

Anyway, Happy Fat Tuesday and Ash Wednesday!
