Accountability

ac·count·abil·i·ty: noun: Merriam-Webster defined as: the quality or state of being accountable; especially: an obligation or willingness to accept responsibility or to account for one’s actions

Today, I accept accountability for my actions (or lack there-of)… I am kicking off my week (and the new year) by taking control of my life! After being everything I am to everyone else: a wife, mother, daughter, sister, auntie, friend, and everything in between, I figured it was time to start doing something for me! Call me selfish, but I think I deserve it!!

Being out of the game for the last 6-weeks (five-weeks with a cold/flu combo, and spending the last week officially starting my very slow recovery), today is the first day I woke up feeling “good,” so with all of the energy I could muster up this very chilly January morning, I made the decision to jump back on the “new-year/new-you” band-wagon, because much like Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., “I have a dream…” to rock a bikini body by my birthday!

That’s right — two kids, a few stretch marks, and a pair of mom jeans later (okay, maybe not the last one – yet!) — I am going to rock a bikini body (and subsequent bikini) by my birthday! And do you want to know how I’m going to do it? Well, here’s a sneak peek at my secret weapons (because, just like a cute pair of shoes, you can’t have just one!) I have enlisted the help of a few of my favorite websites, apps, and of course friends, to help (and support!) me along my way, including:

Six Sisters’ Stuff

To quote the famous Beetles song (or rather, my favorite version by Joe Cocker), “with a little help from my friends I will make this dream a reality by eating right, exercising, tracking my progress and leaning on my friends when I start to fall — but most importantly, I will hold myself accountable, because regardless of whether I succeed in my efforts to sculpt a bikini ready body, or I don’t, I will rock one on my birthday! Gulp…

Here goes nothing!!

My first taste of Thai food!

Can you believe it took me 30 years to try Thai food? My wonderful husband took me to this amazing Thai restaurant here in our small Wisconsin town. If you haven’t experienced it, you definitely should. The service, the ambience, and the food was amazing! http://mahlithaicuisine.com/
