So... it's been very hot in New York these past few days, in the 90s, and yesterday I decided to hit the beach.
I wore my bikini from two years ago (I haven't bought a new one yet, I will as soon as the bikini club is over).
I thought I looked ok when I was lying on the sand and walking around the beach. A little less ok when I was sitting down and my belly was still far from flat... :(
I found myself trying to cover up with my magazine and being self conscious in general. I didn't like that.
So I've decided to schedule my meals for the coming week in advance and to completely eliminate a few items that I've still been indulging on.
This is what my week is going to look like:
I will try this for one week and check the results next Sunday. The items I am eliminating are chips and soda.
My goal is to eat more vegetables and fruits. I will only have bread in the mornings, and maybe with the eggs (I gotta dip it in the yolk!). And I will only drink water, still water.
The "Anything I want" days are still about veggies and maybe meat. No soda no chips rule still applies.
This is what I am working against.
I've measured my stomach, and while I'm almost happy with the 27 inches at mid-waist, the 30 inches below that classify (in my book) as bulge.
In general, I feel that the two numbers should be closer to each other, like 27 and 28. Or 26 and 27.
I will measure myself next Sunday to report any progress.
I hope you girls are all sticking to the previous drills. And if you can, try something along these lines, with a lot more control on the diet.
Also, please feel free to make any suggestions and to share your diets.
As for exercising, this week it will be yoga, belly dancing and weight lifting. Four days.
On the beauty side, I am really taking care of my body with a lot of scrubbing and extra moisturizing time set aside every day.
So how is your bikini routine going?
