The ultimate incentive

I made my New Year's resolution, and it's the same as always: lose some weight and get fit.

This hasn't always worked so well for me. Yes, some years I've managed to lose some weight, but most years I haven't, and it's always a struggle.

On New Year's Day my sister called. She was making reservations and needed information. Woo hoo, she's taking us to Hawaii!! And not just Dave and me, but the girls, too! She's using timeshare points to get 2 condos on Kauai, one of the westernmost of the Hawaiian Islands, and cashing in her multitude of airline miles to fly us there.

Let's see... white sand beaches, snorkeling, scuba diving... Yeah, definite incentive! Our whole family started yesterday, with the goal to lose weight by the time we take the trip in October.

And when the hunger gnaws, or when my knees hurt from exercising, I just have to think about the trip. It'll all be worth it when I put on that coconut bra and grass skirt!



  1. Man, I am so jealous. I may have to knock you out and take your place in June.

  2. LOL, Rosie! Guess I'll hafta watch my back, huh?

  3. I'll take the pictures this trip. I know the Babes would not want to miss Dee in the grass skirt.

  4. Heh, are you going to model the grass skirt and coconut bra for us before you leave?

  5. In your dreams, Rosie babe! :)
