So in exactly 10 days I am leaving on a fun filled vacation with the awesome man in my life. Today I received my new bikini in the mail and upon trying it on realized that my body could use a little tweaking. I would love to lose 10 pounds before we leave but I know that is a bit of a lofty goal in only ten days. However, considering I eat like crap and do not exercise I am thinking if I really push myself I could get reasonably close. Heck, even if I don’t lose more than 5 pounds I will still look better in my new bikini than I do right now!
Earlier this evening I walked to my guest room, where I keep my lonely treadmill. That treadmill gets more action from my cat sleeping on it than me running or walking on it for sure! I jogged for the first time in probably 6 months and did a quick mile. It did not take me long, it was fairly easy, and it gave me a boost of energy that I did not expect. Since I started back to school, on top of working a full time and part time job, the last thing I want to do at night or in the morning is jog on a treadmill. With that being said, I know that if I really want to be the confident and happy version of myself on vacation it is probably time to push myself a little.
So I got on the scale this evening and weighed in at 134 pounds and I am 5’7″. I know that I fall in the normal weight for my height but we all have that magic weight where we know we just really look good in anything. That weight where you can sit on a boat in your bikini and bend over to get the suntan lotion out of your bag and not have to worry about the overhang from your stomach showing to the world. Yes, in my scrubs at work or a simple t-shirt and jeans those little imperfections are easy to hide but once you are in full sun in nothing but a bikini the truth is revealed! How about when you are sitting in your beach chair next to your man enjoying the sun and you get super hot and want to head out to the water…the line-up of chairs facing the water is like a big audience of people watching you walk to the water! They are all looking at your ass and comparing and taking notes! It makes me want to turn around and do jazzy hands as I back dat ass up to the water!
My goal is to drink only water, (no sodas or alcohol), eat as healthy as possible, (lots of fruits, veggies, and protein) and exercise every day and as much as possible. If you have any advice for me on this 10 day journey it would be greatly appreciated! Maybe you have a vacation coming up and you can join me on the 10 day push to get your goal started!
To a happier, healthier you!
