So I bought a bikini,

and realized immediately that I am a bit doughy. And a bit saggy.

Now don't get me wrong, it could be A LOT worse. A lot.
But it reminds me of last winter where I just kept eating and not really working out. Too much sitting by the fire because it's -40 outside and all my parts starting to implode on themselves.
My ass flattens out.
My hips settle into my saddle bags.
I generally just feel wider.

But no, I didn't go up a pants size or anything, I just expand in different ways that I'm not a fan of.
There are less curves or more lines, if you get what I'm saying.
I like curves.
I mean, look at my poor ass.  And poor Bayou, he is an ass man. And this is what I have to offer.

One of my favorite bloggers to read, Val, from Fab Chick Gets Fit, has a 90 Day Challenge that this glamorous photo shoot just happened to fall into. (These pics were taken the week of March 21)
It's basically 90 days to push yourself as hard as you feel like to get ready for lazy days by the pool...looking fine as Hell, obvi.

And here is an update collage about four weeks in.
PS- I am in LOVE with that bikini. I Heart Neon, always and forever.

Nevermind the fact that the tags are still on the bikini
Can we talk about aging for a hot minute?
I am 30.
That's not old by any means.
But dudes, it is HARD to get into shape these days.
Like, I swear, last year, I just worked out really hard for 8 weeks and BOOM...ab-city.
But these days?
Anything that is bad to eat goes straight to my thighs and back.  It is the hardest spot to shrink.
Sigh....I'll get there.
I just have to keep moving....like this:
