What Are Your Favorite Summer Activities?

November 12, 2014

Hello! How are you? I hope you are having a fabulous Friday! Now that the weather is a bit warmer, does anyone have plans to get out and get some fresh air this weekend?

I’ve been doing loads of traveling back and forth to the UK for work, but as soon as I get the chance, I can’t wait to take my granddaughter Pearl for a walk in her stroller. A few weeks ago, one woman said that she wanted to get healthy so she could go bike riding with her grandkids – what a fabulous motivation! Is there anyone else who has goals involving their loved ones? Or anyone who is doing things outdoors with friends or family that they haven’t done in a long time? Speak up!

This is this first time in ages that I’ve found myself looking forward to being outdoors in the summer. When I was carrying around extra weight, I was always wearing black and keeping myself covered up, so I just couldn’t stand to be outside in the heat. Surely I’m not the only one who has felt this way?

Recently I’ve started wearing lighter things like t-shirts, maxi skirts, and Capri pants, which are much more suitable for warm weather. What a difference! I have a lot more options to choose from on a day to day basis, and now that I don’t feel like I’m roasting all the time, I’m able to enjoy summer so much more!

Even at work, I have a lot more freedom when it comes to my wardrobe. The other night I wore a dress with an open back – something I would have never even considered a year ago. I thought certain styles like open-back dresses just weren’t right for my body, but it was the lifestyle I was living and the foods that I was eating that weren’t right for my body.

So, how about you? What summer activities are you enjoying this year? Are you feeling more comfortable in summery clothes? Have you hit a wall? What’s the latest? Let’s hear it!

All My Love and Support,

Sharon
