True Life: I Have To Be In A Bikini In Less Than 70 Days

Sssoooooo, I have a confession. I am not summer beach body ready. I have mastered the art of hiding it but ya girl is NOT quit there. 

I have a trip to Jamaica in the beginning of August so OF COURSE I went and bought all bikinis. Then I tried them on and realized that I cannot hide this fluff on a beach in person. Now for the gram? Yes, I can facetune and filter it up but not so much in person. I would post pictures of the before but… nah! 

Upon realizing this I decided to grab my trusty FitBit and hit the concrete. I love cardio but I got slightly lazy over the past few months. I decided I am going to run at least 4 times a week and try to hit the weights 3 times a week. I also have decided to eat better with packing my lunch more and eliminating fast food. I don’t have an issue with water intake actually. I don’t drink alcohol or pop/soda. I just stick to tea and water for the most part. Let’s see how this goes because the ticket is paid for and the resort is reserved. I said it here and aloud so I have to do this, right? RIGHT. I need a gym partner, who is down? Accountability is super key in this journey. 

Maybe now is a good time to drop that fast food from my 30 for 30 list? It’s go time!

Speaking of bikini’s…

I got these 4 bikini’s at Target for super cheap! The Target clearance section is your friend. I paid $6-$10 for the bottoms and $7-$12 for the tops! AMAZING DEALS! Listen, over at Glitter & Growth we ain’t balling! I am always here for a good sale or bargain. 

More importantly…

I have to also get my skin in order. I don’t see me wearing a face full of makeup on  the beach and out snorkeling. Luckily, I was sent some all natural face products by My House Of Flowers and I trying out and will review for you all in the next few weeks. So far, so great. My face is glowing and dark spots are clearing up. Stay tuned for those reviews! I also started using their soaps and moisturizing butters. I am excited to share it with you guys. 

Moral of the story: I need to be photoshop free, natural curls poppin’, face glowing and snatched in less than 70 days. I GOT THIS. 

Are you summer time ready? What are your fitness goals? Are you going to save a few dollars and bring your lunch? Let me know! Want to work out with me and in the metro Detroit area? Come on with me.

For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline. –2 Timothy 1:7

  1. You got this!!! In 70-ish days, you can make it work and you’ll be ready by the time you get ready to go. You already know if I were in MI, I’d be your gym partner with no hesitation! Lol. Keep pushing! πŸ’ͺ🏿πŸ’ͺ🏿πŸ’ͺ🏿
    Also, I love the colors of the bottoms in the third bikini set!


  2. Those bikinis are SO cute!! I am totally not summer ready but I guess it’s never too late to start right? For the beach I usually just wear eyeliner and try to skip out on the foundation. I hope you have a fun time! That sounds like so much fun!
