Fitness and bathing suits and challenges and such
I recently ordered this bathing suit from Land's End.
Last summer at the pool - see above for me exclaiming how! much! fun! we are having! and Jordan not buying a bit of it - I just wore an old bikini with a T-shirt over it. But we'll be going on a couple beach/pool-filled trips this summer and I need a suit that actually fits.
We'll see how this one goes. Even if you're reasonably happy with your body, the swimsuit business tends to be traumatic. I am not inclined to cram myself into suits and examine my ass in three-way mirrors in the store. Nothankyou.
Swimsuitquest 2011, however, coincided with my high school friend Wendy's email about her Spring into Bathing Suit Season Challenge. Complete with prizes!
Wendy's a mother of two who works out when her kids are sleeping, and over the years has gotten hard-core into fitness programs you can do at home, such as P90X, and most recently TurboFire - so much so that she's become a coach and has started selling their products.
She now has a reunion coming up and is working her ass off. In the past three weeks, she's lost: 7 pounds, 2 inches in the waist, and 2 inches in the hips. Even if you're not interested in participating in the challenge, you might be interested in reading about her progress.
So as not to mislead you, I'm not participating, simply because right now I'm not at a place in life for super hardcore workouts and supplements. But if you're looking to shake up your fitness routine, you might want to check it out!
Happy Friday, all!
