Swim suit edition

Hi Ladies! Just wanted to come up for air from the Christmas/New Year extravaganza to say "Hi, hope you're doing well."

In about three weeks, Audrey and I have to don our swimsuits to go mid-winter water sliding with our kids. The water sliding part is a blast; the swimsuit part is, uh, well... intimidating. And here's what intimidating really means: PUT DOWN THE COOKIE and work on transforming that doughy stomach area into something else.

Also, if you want an easy-to-read, motivate-me kind of book to start of the new year, check out The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin. She organizes the chapters by month. January is called Boost Energy. In it, she explores these five ideas: Go to sleep earlier; Exercise better; Toss, restore, organize; Tackle a nagging project; and Act more energetic. Good stuff.
