Last week, I decided that I needed a new swimsuit. I have a tankini that I love, but I would like to have an alternate one that has a low back that can show my tattoo. So.... I head to nearby Sport Chalet for a look. Swimsuit shopping sucks unless you're a SI swimsuit model. I realize that I've had 3 kids, and what I see in the mirror will never look like a 20 yr old again, but I decided to wait to buy another suit. At least the good memories in the Sport Chalet dressing room outweighed any depressing feelings while trying on swimsuits.
In the first days of dating Stuntman, he took me to Sport Chalet. We were heading to Catalina to go snorkeling (I don't do SCUBA like he does), and I needed to rent a wet suit. Have you ever tried on a wet suit? The first time trying one on is an interesting experience. I'm not the most coordinated person to begin with, so I had my difficulties in the dressing room. After I fell, and I mean FELL out of the saloon-style doors, Stuntman decided to help me. We laughed so hard!
Since my Adventures in Swimsuit Shopping last week, I've taken healthy eating a bit more seriously. I've hit the gym almost every day (I took off the day I detailed the RV, that was enough exercise).
I don't really want to call it a diet, that sounds temporary. Just a change in habits that I'll need to keep up for the rest of my life. Face it, I'm not 20 any longer, I can't eat whatever I want , whenever I want to, in the amount that I want. I know that "being busy" is not the same as "being active". So I need to take that up a notch. I'm hoping to buy a new swimsuit in August.
