First of all I am so glad to be home from the beach...I learned a lot about myself this week and I will tell you that I will never family vacation without Lynn again! Now, don't get me wrong...I love being with my kids but being in our family vacation spot without the routines that Lynn and I had in place was just not fun at all...I did have one night I sat alone of the beach and just relaxed...That was nice! I also did spend an hour really working on my list of 40 things to do before I turn 40! Now that was just fun! I will promise to post the list soon!

However, in general I am glad to be home, back at work today and preparing for the kids to be back in school...

As for the diet! Yep - I AM STILL FOCUSED!

I also feel it is easier to follow my diet when here at home! I did great at the beach and followed the program well except for Thursday when I came home...I did not eat enough and ended the day with a PMS migraine!

I also found I did not drink enough water or sweat when I trained...I guess all in all it was just that...a vacation week and now I am ready for full blown action! I still feel trimmer and can tell a few things are shifting, shrinking, or maybe just rolling in a new direction!

School starts Tuesday and I can't wait to start my new workout schedule! It will require a NEW bedtime, lights out by 11 PM but I think I can do it...Ooooh it is 10:52 now...I will try and test it tonight and see how I feel tomorrow on 8 hours of sleep instead of 4...

Island Time

Finally! I am back on Island Time!

We arrived around six on Sunday and are staying in a beautiful home on Yacht Drive. Once we unpacked, the kids hit the arcade and I met up with Sissy Frazier (Lynn's sister) for a great meal at "Turtle Island"! I had tuna steak, my greens and a salad. They did not have sweet potato's however, they had fried sweet potato chips - (NOPE) - I had the salad! I had water instead of the delicious Margarita's they serve!

I enjoyed sharing a great conversation with Sylvia and always feel so spiritual fed around her...We got on the topic of the this crazy world we all live in and how things have changed so much. The battles we all deal with in YOU vs YOU!

I shared with her my most recent personal battle and that is the quote that knocked me upside the head recently!

"If what you do is who you are...

than who are you when you are not doing what you do anymore?"

I love life, I love my family, I love myself...I love my husband, I love my friends...I love what I do but something is missing...

Spending just an hour with Sylvia and having this "Deep" conversation led me to the realization that I need to focus on what is "eternal and what is permanent" in my life...

So this is what I will be pondering as I walk to the pier at sunset today and what I will seek as I read on the beach today...

In all areas of your life...

What are you doing that is eternal and what are you doing that is permanent?"

Chow - I am beach bound! Tennis shoes in one hand, books in the other!
