Every girl thinks about that time of the year when they have to go to a pool party or head to the beach – even if you claim you don’t, you are probably lying. Come on ladies….we all know I am talking about the summer season!
Summer is one of those times that is awesome but we know it is coming long before it arrives thats to magazine covers, stories on the news or any entertainment show. It may come at the same time every year; however, it always seems to sneak up on us. How is that possible?
Going from being a college athlete to becoming a NARP (non-athletic regular person) I was worried that I would loose my athletic build. I have always had something to train for so how do I keep it up now?
Well, I love going to the gym. One of the first things I did when I relocated to Buffalo was find a gym. I do not need anything fancy, I just needed a gym with weights, a treadmill and an elliptical. Thankfully I found one right down the road from the house. I also love waking up and doing something in the morning, whether it is some Zumba, a workout DVD (yes I still use those), abs and push-ups, going to the gym bright and early (it opens at 5am but I am not typically that ambitious) or just something to get the blood flowing. I feel so much more productive in the morning. I also love playing tennis or going for runs around the neighborhood because I love the area that I am living in.
So when Influenster sent me the Bikini Ready “gummies” as part of the #vitavoxbox I was a little skeptical. Just because I do not do diet products, just the old fashion working out and trying to keep pretty healthy. They are all right, do I believe they work as far as energy (what they claim to do)? I mean they are pure sugar so what do you expect? They are probably not effecting my metabolism as much as working out and eating right helps but for someone who’s goal it was to loose weight and boost their metabolism maybe they give you that extra advantage.
I am a firm believer in the idea that your mind is your biggest enemy. If you believe something is working, you are going to imagine the effects happening. You also are more likely to buy into healthier habits – at least for a period of time. But I also received one of the packets with only 2 gummies in it, it may be one of those things I need to give another shot as far as a source of energy.
So how did my sumer of #BikiniReadyLifestyle go? This year I went on vacation to the Bahamas, spent time at the lake with my family, hung out by pool and made sure I got outside as much as I could once I started working because….look out Buffalo, winter is coming and they are calling for a doozy!
