Bikini Bod on the Brain

Hi All!

So glad I finally have a few minutes to post. Work has been beyond busy, there have been a lot of family and friend events recently, I’ve been super committed to my 3 week diet/exercise plan, and I’ve been sick the past few days! It’s been a horrible combination for blogging; but hopefully I can get back on track!

I wanted to re-cap my efforts of my goal to get in shape before Memorial Day weekend (ahh only 5 days left)!

So I bought Bethenny’s book, Naturally Thin for some inspiration! I’ve been reading it regularly and picked up some great tips, but over all I don’t know if I could fully adapt to her methods of eating…it honestly sounds like she barely eats! Regardless, it’s an interesting perspective.

I’ve upped my exercise trying to do some arms/legs/butt/abs and cardio everyday. I picked up some new hand weights and have been using them regularly. I try to work out every night- out of the last 2 weeks I’ve only skipped 2 work out days!

I’ve been pre-cooking and packaging all of my meals and snacks. In the morning I’ve been eating a hard boiled egg or an egg white muffin! I found this recipe and loved it- especially because they can be frozen for the week. Mix egg whites, green peppers, black pepper (add any veggies you’d like), pour into greased muffin tins- bake at 350 for about 20 minutes. Freeze and heat up in the morning πŸ™‚

You got a peek into my healthy snack prep a couple weeks ago, but I’ve extended to non-refridgerated items as well: peanuts, dried fruits, multi-grain chips, etc.

I’m a frozen food/veggies fanatic lately! I use them for lunch and dinner. I’ve been making salads with a veggie burger or chik patty with vegetables, hard boiled eggs, walnuts, etc, and hot dishes with eggplant, squash, zucchini, onions, shitake mushrooms, black beans, broccoli, and organic salsa.

Results have totally been paying off- I even picked up 2 new bikinis πŸ™‚

Props to Old Navy- I have such a hard time finding a swimsuit that fits properly, I always need to shop at stores that sell separates, and even then I struggle, but this suit is amazing! The cut on the top fits so well!

This one is a little flashy, and definitely has less coverage, but I love it πŸ™‚ I’ve been looking for a metallic/silvery suit forever!

I plan to continue my efforts, and definitely up my game the next few days! I like setting a goal and seeing it through. I’m not dropping the ball on this one!

And as always…a picture of my current mani πŸ˜‰

Forever 21 Polish- no name on it though :-/

This polish is crazy! It appears neon orange, neon pink, and red in different lights!

So many people have told me they’re currently trying new diet and exercise plans, how are you getting ready for the bikini season?
