Let it be known that you do not have to be at goal weight to rock a bikini! So what if you have stretch marks, a little extra pudge, or no abs? Be you! And if being you is anything like being me, then you wear the heck out of that bikini!
You better believe, if I wore a bikini at 300 pounds, I’m wearing one on vacation with my husband and father at 170!
We’ve been swimming, tanning, fishing, and eating, and it’s been glorious! I’m not counting calories, working out, or studying for school. On Monday, though, I’m back on it and starting training for my half marathon. Never lose sight of your goals!
Last night for dinner we went to this place on Sanibel Island called “The Island Cow”, a hole in the wall dive packed full of people with the most ridiculous, amazing four page menu!
I settled on ordering the Blackened Grouper Tacos with black beans on rice, salsa, and sweet potato fries! It was delish!
Yep. Not vegan, but its no secret that this Florida girl loves some fresh local seafood, especially grouper! I ordered my tacos without cheese, and the beans were in fact vegan.
Also not vegan, but amazing, was my dad’s 60th birthday cookie cake! Oh my god! I’ve officially blown my 30 day no sugar challenge (Sorry LJay, I just can’t resist a giant cookie!), but have no fear, I’m recommitting on Monday.
This morning we enjoyed coffee on the terrace overlooking the pool. I’m obsessed with Starbucks, and was super stoked to see the resort was fully prepared to make me a perfect Grande Soy Latte.
Never underestimate the importance of relaxation and family time. I love this man!
After a short little storm, which is totally typical for South West Florida, we got to the fun stuff – catching fish!
And Sean caught a Shark!!!
Check this dude out! Cute little Bonnet Head:
I hope everyone can find some time to get outside and enjoy the weekend with friends and family! Happy Friday from Sanibel, Florida!
