"Nice" incentive

Thing 14: Average 20 crunches/day for 30 days

**sigh** Haven't even started yet. Thought the bling would inspire me, but now I just spend a lot of time admiring my well-decorated, yet still-too-un-toned-for-my-own-satisfaction stomach. However, today I received an amazing, wonderful, nice surprise that has given me the incentive I need to get started... I hope.

Seven weeks from today, I will be packing for a weekend trip to Disney, where I plan to spend time playing with my kids in, gulp!, a swimming pool. The "pool" is not the bad part, it's, we'll, it's what you have to wear in the pool that I'm dreading! It's been close to a year since I put on a bathing suit and the thought terrifies me. I certainly can't do a total body makeover in the next 7 weeks, but I certainly can start the crunches I've been planning on anyway, right? At least even if I still don't feel good in the bathing suit (and no, I'll never feel "good" in the bathing suit!), I can't blame it on not getting around to this item on my list.

Wish me luck!
