A Personal Challenge!

I was looking over some old pictures the other day, and came across this old photo.  It was taken 15 years ago, when I was 30 years old.

With our upcoming trip to the Virgin Islands, I wondered if I could look like this for our trip.  With my frugal ways, I still have this bathing suit!

So, I'm challenging myself to step up my workout routine and get in shape like I was15 years ago!   I can tell you I won't have that tan.  When this picture was taken, I was going to the tanning booth.  While I loved my tan (this redhead does tan) and the relaxation of the booth, I didn't go to the booth very long because I knew how bad it was for me.  I'm glad I stopped!  I 've tried some sunless tanning lotions in the past, and they seemed to work pretty well, so I'm gonna try one of those again this year.

I"ve always been into fitness, have completed a few triathlons, and try to stay in shape.  Exercise is what keeps me going!   However, I'm going to have to push myself a little more to get ready for our trip.  Wish me luck!

BTW, that's my baby girl in the picture with me.  She just celebrated her 20th birthday last month ... wow!

Hasta luego ... until then.  Mid-Life Cruising!

Wow -- I've been thinner than I am now (at nearly 51 years old), but I have NEVER had abs like you do in that photo of yourself at 30. Good luck getting them back!
