In just a couple of weeks, I will be on vacation! I am so ready for it. The past couple months have been such an adjustment with moving, Bobby working at a new place, learning a new town, new, new, new. New is good but also scary and exhausting, so I am excited to get to unwind with my family in my favorite place on earth, DISNEYWORLD!
And staying at the Polynesian!
and then getting on the Mickey boat!!! (The Disney Dream)
This is actually a picture of the Magic. I don’t have any pics of the Dream since well…I haven’t been on her yet!
The fact that vacation has snuck up on me has put me in PANIC MODE. Why do you ask? I have not been in public in a swimsuit since last summer. AAAHHH! First things first…I do not think I am fat, and I am not going on a “diet” and I am not trying to get sympathy or fish for compliments. I am honestly just NOT READY to be in a swimsuit yet for the summer.
It’s so easy in the winter to hide the less toned or squishy parts with bulky sweaters and the like. It will be way hot in Florida and the Bahamas so I will be forced to show skin or die. I would also like to mention I am a generally pretty modest person so I feel awkward in a swimsuit in public no matter how I look. This is why I was PETRIFIED to post my before and after 6 weeks to 6 pack pictures! I don’t feel I am where I would like to be as far as the “firming up” goes, so I have put a plan into action for the next couple of weeks that will hopefully help me feel a little more confident. This is my “kick it into high gear” plan:
-Workout 6 days a week, sometimes twice a day (cardio once weights once preferably)
-food overhaul! I know I will eat AWFUL on vaca which is fine, but cutting back on stuff I love will be easier knowing I can eat whatever I want in a couple of weeks on the trip! So what am I cutting back on? Mainly sugar and white flour/pasta/etc. I have a massive sweet tooth and have been eating Easter candy and the like since April. I will be trying to not eat “dessert” after dinner or late at night. Making simple substitutions should really make a difference.
-work on the mental aspect of things (I will never see these people again, it doesn’t matter what I look like or what they think, I am beautiful inside and out, etc.)
Bobby brought me flowers he picked yesterday when he came home from work!
I want to be HEALTHY and TONED not “skinny”
So, do you think I will be able to stick with this for two weeks? Any words or wisdom or tricks of the trade?
*I updated my workout log tab
*I still need ONE guest blogger, any volunteers? It doesn’t have to be fancy! Could be a race recap, recipe, etc. e-mail me!
QOTD: Any tips for me and my “plan?”
