God knows I’ve worked hard towards my summer body this year! I made drastic changes to my diet, worked harder than ever during my workouts, strived towards being more consistent, lost some…struggled to stay motivated through Winter, persevered through it anyway and then came back stronger with the changing seasons. And now, here we are at the beginning of Summer…and still my Summer body is not ready!!!
Amidst the colourful array of high waist bikinis, tankinis and perfectly cut out monokinis…between the board shorts and the surf tops and the printed kaftans, I found the one for me! Black (because it’s always slimming) with a bonus built in bit for tummy control. It comes padded with a bit of a lift, because after 3 kids and the gravity effect I sure as hell need it, and it has a high back so it perfectly camouflages the back fat I didn’t manage to melt away in time. I added a shorts to wear over, and it’s just the thing for that extra inner thigh that all my excruciating exercises didn’t quite get rid of…and I grabbed a brightly coloured kaftan on the last minute to throw over when lounging on the beach! It’s perfect and I’ve never been more excited to welcome in Summer!
I’ve worked hard on my health and fitness this year, and though my body is far from perfect as we venture into the warmer season…and isn’t quite “beach ready” according to societies standards; I’m going to be heading out and having fun with my family anyway…because I’ll take perfect memories over a perfect body any day…or at least this season…or till my body co-operates. Who am I kidding; I’ll take the memories …but still always strive towards keeping fit and healthy!!!
