Shred It or Dread It: FAIL

Yeah, I leave Wednesday night for my Mexico trip. And I only managed to lose that 4 pounds I lost in the first week of my failed Shred It or Dread It plan. It's not that I didn't try. In fact, I worked my ass off and worked out a lot. A whole lot. With weights. And cardio. I mixed it up, sure that would do the trick. But alas, there was too many holidays and parties and too much beer I suppose.


But I'm over it. I've decided I'm having a good time whether I have any jiggly bits or not.


So I've purchased the swimming costume (tm Holly) above and I'm going to rock it. (Top here and bottom here from Lands End. Super cheap.) Sure, I look a 35-year-old mom of two who works full-time and can't quite get her act together to get in the shape she wants to be in, but if that's who I am, then so be it.


I'm going to have fun, not worry about holding in my stomach, and enjoy some fruity drinks and Mexican beer with my dearest friends. I can't wait!


Pin It!

I love this suit. Seeing that I've been rockin the chubby girl suit for the last 4 years, each year thinking it has to be the last year and I'll be thinner next year, I may have to order this.

Have a great time on your trip. Remember alcohol makes everyone feel thinner....

I'm sure you look fabulous in your bathing suit. I've always though that once you hit a certain size you shouldn't wear a bikini. It sure didn't stop me from rocking one this past week at the lake. Yeah, my middle is a little soft & my thighs touch. But my hubby seems to like it & I feel comfortable in it (mostly).
Go have fun & don't worry about the jiggly bits. : )

Have a great time!

And, that's what I always say, shopping is easier than losing weight and an almost equal pick me up! =)

No one will notice any giggling on you--they will be way too distracted by the awful man-thongs.

I love this suit! I have one also from Land's End that's regular straps instead of the halter. Swim mini's are WONDERFUL for hiding my jigglies! Have a GREAT vacation in Mexico! Tell Mr. Sasha that we'd love to have the kiddos over if he needs a break!
