So this all started a couple of weeks ago when I was going through my closet and switching things from winter to spring/summer (which I highly advise). After trying on a few items I realized everything was more snug than last year! I have always had active jobs and always ate fairly well so I never really had to worry about getting a work out in or how things were going to fit but I hit 26, got an office job and sadly realized those days are long gone! So I thought I would share with you how I am working on getting back into that bikini this summer.
I don’t have a gym membership so I do my work outs at home or if it’s a beautiful day I take a stroll around the city. Between my job and the blog I don’t have much time in my day for work outs so I look for something fast an easy. Here are some youtube channels that I follow and you can do in your living room; BRETT CAP / JILLIAN MICHAELS. Also, here is a yoga video I love, it’s perfect if you are a beginner like me; YOGA FOR BEGINNERS.
Grocery shopping is one of my favorite things to do so I usually venture out and get more than what is on my list, but here is what I typically have to get every week:
Apples (pink ladies are my favorite)
Gluten free tortilla chips (taste better than corn ones)
Fresh peanut butter (I want one of those machines)
This is what I would have for meals Monday-Friday:
Breakfast: Mixed fruit or egg whites with mushrooms (and some hot sauce)
Snack: Raw almonds or cashews
Lunch: Juice including Spinach, carrots, and 2 or 3 different fruits; I use my NutriBullet for this, if you don’t have one I highly suggest investing in one.
Dinner: Salad with carrots, tomatoes, Avocado, sliced almonds, with an oil and vinegar or lemon juice dressing.
Snack: Tea with a little yogurt and granola
Now I do switch things up a bit but this is what I try to do all week and on the weekends I let myself have a little break.
I hope this helps you all with some ideas for getting into that bikini this summer!
What are you all doing to get in that bikini this summer?
