Beach Workout

IMG_8861There is nothing like laying next to extremely fit people in a swimsuit to jump start the need to workout.  The joy of vacationing is that you don’t need to be anywhere, so there really are no excuses to get out and move (although that doesn’t keep me from trying to make them).
