A Southern Belle with City Flare

I find it hard to be docile and meek in a world full of sharks. So I'm not.

Just a little reminder.

thefaultinourspoons:

YOUR HEALTH COMES BEFORE EVERYTHING ELSE. 

Your physical and mental health is way more important than anything else in your life. 

Your health comes before school, before work, before seeing your friends, before spending time with your family. 

You shouldn’t have to sacrifice your health for other aspects in your life.

Your health comes before anything and everything else.

Life hack: if someone makes a racist/sexist joke, say, with total seriousness, “I don’t get it, can you explain it”

Then watch them crash and burn

Shredding

I’ve been doing 30 day shred with Ms. Jillian Michaels. Today will be day 5. 

Do I really need to tell you it’s not easy? I’m sure I do not. She mixes weights, lunges, squats, and cardio all together, oh and I can’t forget abs. Honestly I know she’s tough but when we saw the workout was 20 minutes me and the Mr. were like pssssh piece of cake. I do 45 minute cardio workouts all the time and barely break a sweat. THIS is NOT THAT. I am drenched with sweat afterwards. It’s grossly satisfying in a way. The other levels are those that shall not be named. 

I like to eat, and I need the fitness level required to continue to eat what I like. Plain and Simple. The one thing in the back of my mind through all of this is that they are going to have to take in my bridesmaids dress. UNHEARD OF! That gets me through front raises and side lunges like nothing else. Not even the thought of having a glass of after-workout wine does that for me. I will take Level 1 and Level 2 update photos for comparison. I hate googling before and after and it’s the same 15 people. Then I thought hmmmm people must quit in the middle. I have never wanted to finish something like I want to finish this, ok well that full marathon e in 70 degree plus heat uncanny for Portland. I was going to run my feet off before I quit that. I did follow that up with Martinis and Champagne. 

Truth be told I have been wearing the same bathing suits for the last 8 years. I have a few. I have the purple, I’ve gained too much weight for a bikini tankini. I have the one piece that says I’m kinda in shape but not really. I have three bikini’s for when I’m looking and more importantly feeling amazing. 

I want the no going back bikini. I’m on the hunt for that now. I think it’s bright with some fringe and screams, “I WORK OUT!” - LMFAO
