Summer time is on it’s way and my dear Blog contributor could not be any righter than this Please read on:
She wore an itsy bitsy, teeny, weenie, yellow polka dot bikini…. Remember that cereal commercial about the young woman who was eating right in preparation for that faithful beach day that would be just around the corner? Well this is the 2011 version. My swimsuit of choice is not teeny weenie, nor is it polka dot, but it is FIERCE!!!
I actually keep a photo of it as a visual reminder of why I’m pushing myself the extra mile, walking that extra lap and walking AWAY from the bakery section at the grocery store.
What’s your motivation? Share with your friends, keep a picture of it on you, or better yet print it out put on your wall, your fridge, somewhere so you can have a mental reminder as to what you are striving for. I have a cruise coming up at the end of this year and I hope to rock my swimsuit! Another goal I’ve set for myself is to learn how to FINALLY ride a bike. Yes I know, me a grown non bike riding female. Once I pick up this skill though I hope to add it to my exercise routine. Is there something you want to learn that can make breaking a sweat fun? How about kayaking, swimming (that’s on my list too), or even dance lessons. If you can have fun and workout at the same time, you’ll be amazed at how easy it is to shed off those excess pounds. I’ve got my motivation for MY next 30 days. I hope you have yours!!
Yours in Health,
