Pride goeth before a woman in a white bikini.

I'm on vacation right now and before I left I purchased two new bathing suit bottoms.

I decided that after 4 years of wearing bathing suit skirts, I wanted to wear bikini bottoms with my tankini tops.

After all, I've been Shredding for 2 months, I've lost 3 pounds and my thighs were finally slimming down a little.

So before we made our way down to the beach on Saturday morning, I got out my new bikini bottoms and proudly showed them to my husband.

I put them on and strutted around a little.

And on the walk down to the beach I kept admiring myself. I am not ashamed to admit that I kept looking down at my legs thinking how nice they looked.

I was quite pleased with myself.

Even after we had been at the beach for 30 minutes I was still admiring my thighs.

And then I looked up and caught sight of a woman who was my age or maybe even a little older.

And I froze.

She was gliding down the beach with her 4 children.

Her legs were super toned and super tanned and she was wearing a bikini.

A white bikini.

Not just bikini bottoms and a tankini top.

A bikini.

A white bikini.

It was at this point in time that I stopped starring at my thighs and admiring them.

And in the last three days, I have eaten donuts, 2 different kids of pie, and several different kinds of ice cream. I am on vacation after all.

I have even been eating blueberry buckle for breakfast.

And let's face it. Even though it has blueberries in it, it's still just cake.

So I've been eating cake for breakfast for the last three days AND I haven't been Shredding.

It's a good thing I packed my old bathing suit skirt bottoms. I think I'm going to need them before this vacation is over.

Bless your heart, Beth!
I'll bet you still look smashing in your bikini bottoms. Heck, you'll probably still lose a couple of pounds. :)

Don't stress it. You will never see these people ever again! :)

That's how I view vacation time. Especially after gorging myself with a ton of calories.

Now that is just not NORMAL! ;)

Seriously. I rock the tankini with the skirted bottom...in my mind at least! ;)

Aimee said...

Aww, keep the bikini bottoms on, girl. I'm sure you look great!

I'm still in the tankini/skirt phase myself, even though I have kept up with the shredding.

We leave for the beach on Sat, so I'll be trotting my pasty white legs out in my little skirt soon! :)

She probably one of those people who can't gain wait! We HATE them!

Debbie said...

Those kind of women are evil. You should have thrown her into the ocean!

Good for you, struttin' your stuff! I would love it if I could wear a tankini and bottoms. My son is 11 months. I have never been larger than a size 6 and I can't seem to lose the enormous amount of lbs I gained with him! I wear a tank top and shorts to swim in. I haven't even graduated to a swim suit. As for the other woman, she was a body double for the REAL mom with 4 kids.

Don't let her get you down! You're doing great! Put that cake away and go visit Jillian. You can do it!
