Good morning! 😎

After yesterday’s eating debacle, I started my morning with a more “balanced” breakfast: one egg over easy with melted cheddar on two pieces of toasted Ezekiel bread and half of an apple on the side.

The meal was very satisfying and didn’t leave me craving something else… like cake, for instance.

I also drank some Birthday Cake iced coffee with soy milk with breakfast. (There may or may not be an awesome coffee promo next week on CNC in honor of someone’s 30th birthday! πŸ˜‰ )

Bathing Suit Body Confidence

So, I haven’t worn a bathing suit in almost 2 years. Not because I don’t want to, but because I haven’t had a chance. The weather was terrible in Boston last summer, so there was no reason to wear one. (Some people, like my husband, say we had nice weather last summer, but if you worked in an office from 9-5, Monday – Friday, there was zero bathing suit-worthy weather on the weekends. Worst summer ever. πŸ˜• ) The winter, of course, didn’t provide any options to get into a bathing suit either.

So, now I am gearing-up to wear a bathing suit (for the first time in 2 years) this coming weekend. I’m not necessarily looking forward to it, but I’m not dreading it either. Since January, I’ve been toning up and staying in shape, so I feel pretty good about myself, but I’ve never been the type of person to who is totally confident wearing a bathing suit. (I guess living in a place that only sees “bathing suit weather” for 3 months out of the year makes it tough, too.)Β I act like I feel good in a bathing suit, but I’m always reluctant to strip down. The idea of “fake it to ya make it” usually works for me, but I still feel the need to cover up. I’m sure I’m not alone in this feeling.

  1. i looooove being in a bathing suit. it makes me feel totally sexy. i guess i get most of my confidence from knowing that i work my butt off and eat well and am generally happy with the results. of course there is always something i’d like to work harder on or change, but i’m happy where i am. i believe you should love what you have and ignore everyone else’s bodies —unless they are inspiration for you to work harder — then you should STARE haha.

  2. I was never confident in a swim suit until I was about 26 years old. I was always really critical of myself, but after actually paying attention to people at the beach/pool, you realize that most of them don’t look like models out of a magazine. It also helped me to find a bathing suit that made me feel confident. It helps that I work out all the time, so even if it doesn’t show on the outside (since I like to eat, too ;-)), I know that I’m healthy and strong.

  3. My wife is Thai for the same slim body as the picture, and very natural in Asia. agree there is morphological and more food at each meal rice and vegetables is 1m 59 to 46 kg: it did with me about the Taiji: and yoga and walking every day we walk 10 km; up at 5 am because he is already very hot. In fact every person on his way to move, the main output is the home, and take this hand every day care you two.
