Good Monday morning to you all!
It’s a beautiful morning here and we are looking forward to a great workout outdoors today!
This morning I woke up and realized that in just a few months we will be heading to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico for a much needed fun in the sun vacation!
While I am super excited about this trip, I also realized that it’s been quite sometime since I’ve been in a swim suit. Since the love nugget was born last May, I don’t think I even attempted to put one on last summer at all. Which means it’s been a good two years! While I’m back at my pre-pregnancy weight, I would like to attempt to tone up a little more and lose 5 pounds before I say Hola to a bikini.
I eat really healthy foods and workout at least 5 days a week. I know that I need to cut back on my healthy fat consumption (almond butter, almonds, macadamia nuts etc.) as well as my natural sugar (fruits) and carbs. I also need to step up my workouts a little adding more cardio to my routine. With Stroller Strides I get a good amount of strength training and now that the weather is nice, I’m hoping to add in more running weekly.
I like to track my caloric intake using an online food and fitness journal. Since I don’t eat processed foods, this is a little time consuming because I have to add in all the ingredients one by one. However, it has a huge database with all sorts of foods that make it a little easier to track.
I also get great motivation and healthy recipes from several different blogs. Here are a few of my favorites;
And of course, there are tons of healthy recipes, motivational quotes, workouts, etc. on Pinterest!
So, I’ve got 82 days to get my butt into shape! Sounds easy enough 🙂
What are you doing to prepare for bikini season this year? Tips? Secrets? Please share!
