Summer is unofficially over friends! Labor Day weekend has come and gone and work and classes are back in full swing. I spent the long weekend down in Fort Morgan, Gulf Shores with a few friends of mine and absolutely loved it! I bought this swimsuit earlier in the summer and I find it funny how I didn't get the chance to wear it until the absolute end! I knew I wanted a white swimsuit but was concerned about how it would look. Plus, I knew I wanted one that wasn't so pricey. I scoured the internet for a while and found my white spaghetti strap crochet accent swimsuit on SheIn.com. Other than a funky little crochet tan line on my stomach after spending all day on the beach, I really like my swimsuit! *I know people are skeptical about SheIn, but just be sure to read the reviews and check out the pictures prior to purchasing.
Be sure to check out the blog later this week as I detail my trip to Gulf Shores! Have a great weekend!
It's always been said that "beach bodies are made during the winter". And if you really think about that phrase, it's so true! Depending on where you live, you've got a good 2-3 months, sometimes more, when you're practically swaddled in scarves, sweaters, and parkas! And of course we could all just eat and hibernate until Spring arrives, but then we'd strain ourselves trying to get fit for bikin weather. Why not create your bikini bod during the winter months? It's not like you'll have to rush to spinning class to find a bike or anything lol!
With an two pending visits to Mexico later this year, I've decided I've got to get myself into shape! In all honesty, I don't make time to work out everyday. But on the days I do, I take time out to do a few reps of a shirt circuit and take part in the all to famous #30daychallenge!
If you've ever seen some of my style posts (more are coming soon!!) you've seen my frail arms. I mean, I'm 5'9" (on a good yoga day) so my arms are a little long and wimpy. It just comes with the territory I guess. So instead of whining about my toothpick arms, I decided to find a beginner's arm workout circuit! This circuit consists of 5 different exercises that target the group of muscles in your arms and it only takes you 30 seconds to complete!
But since I'm looking to enhance my lackluster backside, I usually do the Malibooty Workout from ToneItUp.com at least three times a week! If you haven't had a chance to check out their website, you should do so, ASAP. A plethora of workouts and healthy lifestyle meals, tips, and suggestions!
And lastly, the 30 day squat challenge. I swear to you, I start one at the beginning of each month but can never complete it! Grrr! Priorities, Margo! Priorities! I mean, come one, I can hang out poolside in sunny Mexico if my bikini bottoms don't have much to hold on to (if you get my drift).
Dear 30 day challenge,
I may be 8 days behind, but I'm coming back for you. You can bet your bottom dollar on that!
If squats aren't your thing, do a quick internet search for more 30 day challenges or put one together yourself! You won't regret it!
So while January and the Polar vortex rear their ugly heads, bundle up and make your way over to the nearest gym and start working on your summer body! Sun's out, guns out! Sunny skies, show ya thighs!!
