It' my beach and I'm taking it back today!

Today was an awesome ‘me day’.
My goal when I started this journey a year ago was to take my beach back. I’ve lived here for over 30 years and as a kid growing up I was always at the beach. My girlfriends and I would ride our bikes to the beach after school or on the weekends. We had this giant rock that was our favorite hang out.
Today I took my beach back. I took this day to visit my teenage hang out “the rock”. Well the rock had a new set of teenage girls which is so appropriate. It sure brought back a lot of memories. I wore my new two piece bathing suit and it felt good. No one shot me any “oh my Gosh, look at her” looks. I swam in the ocean – which I had not done in about 10 years.
I took a long walk with out wearing a wrap – I even got a few whistles but then again I was passing the Cabana Bar so I’m quite certain those guys were a little drunk. But hey it still felt good.
I know I’m not a perfect size 6 or 4 but for a 47yr old mom of 3 boys and 2 grand children I am perfect for me.
I do have goals and always will. 1. Lose 15 more lbs. 2. Get lean (do more ST). 3. Stay fit and healthy. Number 3 will be a life long goal that I know I will always continue to do and be. I will not go back to who I was. I can’t I have changed in so many more ways then just the weight loss.
I love the new me – I love that I took my beach back. My family loves the new me and I hope that I can help and inspire everyone I can to be / get fit and healthy.
my beach, my lifeguard
