If swimsuit shopping has you stressed out, you are not alone. The thought of putting on a swimsuit makes many women want to hide in the nearest closest until the next season hits. Now, it should go without saying that embracing your body, where it is, and enjoying time with family and friends, regardless of how you look in a swimsuit, is priceless. Don’t miss out on those memories just because you don’t like how you look in a swimsuit. However, I am also a woman and know that feeling good about ourselves is also very important as is making health and fitness a priority.
Whether you are trying to stay committed to your New Year resolutions, or just stay on track in your health and fitness routine, anyone will tell you that there are highs and lows. Staying motivated is not always an easy task. No matter what you end goal is—to kick a bad habit, lose some stubborn pounds, or gain muscle mass—some days are going to be easier than others.
Let’s take me as an example. Getting up at 5:30 a.m. on Monday mornings after a busy weekend takes a special push to get my tennis shoes on and me out the door. Even more challenging for me is working out in the evening after a long day at work (hence my morning routine). Maybe your challenge is keeping your fitness routine up throughout the entire week, or perhaps not skipping it for some weekend fun.
