Can’t Avoid It Anymore, It’s Bathing Suit Season

During the winter and spring, some people were involved with words like zumba, training, aerobics and dieting. I was involved with words like pizza, cake, pasta and Dessert Wars. I have plenty of time to get into reasonable summer shape, right? Wrong.
