The Ex Wife and the Battle of the Wobbly Bits

It is February 23rd, and in less than a month I will be heading off to Hawaii to spend 10 days of sheer bliss with my sweetie.  Or so I hope.  Don’t get me wrong, I am definitely going to Hawaii, and I am definitely going to be with my boyfriend, but there’s a part of me that worries about the sheer bliss thing.

You see, my boyfriend and I have kind of an unusual relationship.  That said, those of you who know me know that unusual is pretty much the norm in my world.  In a nutshell, he lives with me and my children half the year, in 3-week intervals, and he lives with his ex wife (of 5 years) and his kids the other half of the year, again in 3-week intervals.  Yep, you read that right.  I’m dating a man who last year lived with his ex for 194 days compared to my 149 days.  Not that I’m counting or anything, mind you.  And for all you math wizards out there, I know the days don’t add up to 365, but there actually is a reason for that….business travel.

But I digress….this post isn’t about their living arrangements or anything else I might find interesting, for we could spend weeks if not months dissecting that.  This post is about my need to look utterly fabulous because while I am in that tropical paradise, I will not only be meeting said ex wife, but also staying at her place.  Yes, I know that there’s the potential of the situation being awkward as ass and no, I’m not really sure where that saying originated or why it caught on.  What I do know is that while I am hopeful that she is a wonderful person and we totally hit it off, that does not negate the need for me to look fantastic and be in top-notch form.  I mean, she wasn’t some fly-by-night.  He was married to her for 10 years, and that’s nothing to scoff at.  So the pressure’s on.

Therefore, I have decided that after this past weekend of bingeing on wine and copious amounts of cheese that, I’m sorry to report, has taken up residence on my ass, I have to stop messing around and get serious.  While I’m not overweight, I do have a fair amount of wobbly bits that need to be addressed.  The current plan for eradicating the pesky wobbly bits is working out and eating healthy, nutritious, low-cal, low-fat  foods.   I must note that while I write this, I am feasting on Oreo truffles.  Hence, the battle of the wobbly bits begins tomorrow.  Good plan!
