Hawaii 1-1

found here

After thinking about all the big life events coming up I decided I needed a reward. Something BIG. I deserve it after all. But, I wasn't sure what, when, or who with. Some of my closest friends happen to be graduating from med school (I'd consider that a big life event) so a reward was in order for them too. I'd talked to a few about a trip a long time ago, but wasn't committed and kind of forgot until sort of recently. Well, several text messages later, emails, a few phone calls, LOTS and LOTS of research on the part of Megan (she's awesome like that) and it looks like we're going to the Big Island! I'm an easy sell -- Hawaii with great company?!? Yes, please. I bought my plane ticket and sent a check for our condo so there's no turning back now. I couldn't be more excited.

In preparation, Operation Hawaii 1-1 has officially commenced. Mostly due to the fact that I have to be in shorts and a swim suit for the first time in heaven knows how long. I hired a trainer -- who makes my legs scream in pain -- and started my healthy eating plan. I'm committed. Here's hoping I'll be ready in no time.

Can I tell you how jealous I am? We wanted to go so bad but just couldn't make it work. Oh well. Have fun. Where do go work out at? I really need something to get me motivated.
