In the shower....again!!
At the moment we are lucky enough to be holidaying at gorgeous Coolangatta in a lovely holiday unit with pool, spa, sauna, gym. We are unluckily enough to be having the crapest weather. Not a drop of rain or cloudy weather for months. We come to the beach...the weather turns sour. Did someone say Murphy's Law?
Anyhow, our 6 (I almost typed 5) year old boy was desperate to get into the pool from the moment we arrived. Yesterday afternoon was a no go. It was cold, it was windy, it was cloudy
We were sharing the spa with another young family. A beautiful young mum and her two very well behaved toddlers. As I sat there in my neck to knee swimmers (it's boardies and rashie only for me these days) I was feeling a little frumpy as the other mum sat there in her stunning

I realized that...
Yes, I need to lose weight
Yes, I am now overweight according to my BMI and Wii Fit
Yes, I eat too much
Yes, I need to excerise more

Only in the way that I covet a luxury car, a mansion, a maid, a cleaner, a personal masseuse.
Yeah, it would be nice.
But I don't need it to be happy.
That doesn't mean I'm giving up.
It just means I'm not going to think or worry about it quite so much.
