Happy Spring and things to come!

I can not tell you how glad I am that the weather is getting nicer! It only adds to my excitement for the next few months. First, I received word that I will be employed next year in my school district as an 8th Grade Language Arts teacher. My current job was a two year grant position, which is up at the end of the school year, and I was worried I wasn't going to be able to stay in the district. No more worrying!
Second, because I have a job for the next year, my husband and I and his family have booked a cruise, sailing out of San Juan on June 12. My husband and I went on this same cruise last December, and we are very excited to be going again with his family. His parents also went on a cruise when they were in their 20s, and this will be his sister's first cruise.
Now that I have something to work for, I feel like I have been good this week as far as food and exercise go! I always start out strong, and fade after a few weeks, but I think those 'fade' weeks are becoming shorter in between and that is helping me to maintain my weight and lifestyle a little bit better. Also, I have extra motivation--I want to look good in my swimsuit! Hope everyone else has something to look forward to in the coming months.
