ITS TRUE!!! SAD actually exists!!!

How do I know?  I just got back from a week + in Sunny South Florida ~ and I feel flipping awesome.  My bones are warm again!

I knew winter depressed me, but didn't realize just how bad it was.  This winter was particularly  bad.
Nothing like 9 days in 80 degree weather and hanging on the beach to make me feel like working out again and being healthy! 

Did I feel good about myself and my size and my swim suit?  Hell no.
Did I care that much when I was lounging on the beach ?  Not really

I bought a new beach cruiser and rode "Big Black" all over Jupiter like a boss.  Now that made me so happy ~ being on a bike again in the sunshine 

Yes, Big Black has a rasta bell - gotta let the old ladies know when I'm coming in hot around a corner....

I have faith that summer will come again.  I'll be ready for it.  Both Mo and I perfected sloth life while were there - he even has a pod - which is hilarious as he has always been super thin! So starting today - its healthy eating all the way.


We came to a few realizations while away 
1. Winter blows and we will find a way in the near future to split our time between home and somewhere warm or live in a more temperate climate....
2. Public transportation is my nemesis - I will work until my fingers fall off so that we can fly private in the future.  I loath security screening, flight delays, standing on line being stuffed in a tin can in the sky with humanity.  Gross.  
3.  Everyone needs motivation - mine is a private jet.
4. I love Mo and he Loves me
5. I'd like to try kite boarding once...

This was the nonsense we had to take off in.... 4 hour delay much? 

Back to the grind today-  packing up for the gym shortly and on track (once I go through sugar/mozzarella stick withdrawal)


  1. I thought I was the only one who had mozzarella sticks withdrawals.
    I love that you love Mo.
    That the sun inspired you.
    I need sun. I am like a sloth. I am following your bright, sun filled path.

    That bike IS AWESOME!

  2. Lovely trip! Glad you were reinvigorated!

  3. Sounds like an excellent reboot!

  4. Oh, I love the sun! We went to FLA for a week and came back to single digit temps and snow. It was so depressing!
    Glad you're back on the bike and loving it.
