I was hoping that after 4 and a half months of Shredding I would be able to post an end of summer picture of myself in a bikini. And I was going to do it too. However, my stomach isn't quite flat enough yet for me to even think about purchasing a bikini much less posing for a picture in one and posting it here for the world to see.
However, I did manage to upgrade my tankini skirt to bikini bottoms this summer and with strategically placed children, I think I look pretty darn good.
And don't even get me started on my arms. My husband and kids are getting tired of me flexing my muscles for them. I was even flexing for my mom the other day. I think I saw her eyes roll around a little bit but she told me how great they looked anyway. (I love you, Mom!)
So I'm going to keep on working out and trying harder to watch what I eat so that next summer I can wear a bikini. That's the plan anyway. (And just for comparison purposes, take a look at me from May of 2008. )
