So, yesterday I decided that I’ve already maybe talked big. I blogged in MY STORY about how I’ve let go of comparing myself to others and am just gonna be happy in my own skin.
Well….I may be eating my words a little after this past week.
Hi, I’m Dina, and I compared myself to a Victoria Secret model the other day. EEEK. As if.
I’ve been on a swimsuit buying mission for the past month, so I spent my lunch hour the other day trying on suits that I ordered online from VS. Yes, the models are airbrushed and likely photoshopped but we all know they must look HOT(T) in person, too.
I’ve mentioned it on my fitness page but probably not here. I have two trips to Vegas coming up…the first in just a few weeks and the other in the middle of June. And, if you’ve been to Vegas…hell, you don’t even need to have been to Vegas in May or June to know it will be hot. And, for those of you who don’t know me, I could literally spend the entire day just by or in a pool on a floaty….with a drink in my hand. Seriously. All day. So, a swimsuit for me is a must.
My first trip is with two of my best friends from high school and a bunch of other chics from back home and the second is my first ever trip to Beachbody’s annual Coach Summit. I’m beyond excited about both! I haven’t seen my girlfriends in years and am excited to reconnect and get to know the others who are going better. AND, this whole Beachbody gig is LEGIT. I love it. I love my team. I love the trainers (I actually get to have my pic taken with at least one of them while I’m there btw!!!!!!!!). It’s gonna be an amazing experience!
So, shit got real for me this week. I have less than two weeks to find something that works. When I think of Vegas in the 90s, I think of those DAMN Victoria Secret types walking around in string bikinis. I think of BEACHBODIES! And, I am honestly a little disappointed in myself because…and just keepin’ it real…I’ve pretty much sucked it up when it comes to nutrition…quite often lately…and I’m just not where I wanted to would be. And, yes…it’s my own fault. But, the thing that really sucks is prior to this week I was honestly pretty excited about finding suits. They looked super cute online….again, on those DAMN Victoria Secret models. And, I’ve been pretty excited about the progress I’ve made with weight loss and toning. AND, I’ve even been pretty excited because I swore my cellulite was diminishing. But, again, enter in trying on swimsuits. Maybe there are worse things…or at least equally as bad…the dentist…the DMV…public speaking…the stomach flu. Ok, maybe still not as bad as swimsuit shopping…lol. (I hate “lol” btw….I’m so much more of a HA person…but lol seems to flow better in writing…right?…lol?)
Here are the three choices!
I’m probably going to just keep all three of them and see how my mood suits me when I’m there.
Oh, and I decided that in keeping with my goals and this whole stepping out of my comfort zone thing that I’m going to get in a bikini by this time next year. I’m going to be HAPPY AND COMFORTABLE in it. Will I look like a Victoria Secret model by then?…or EVER?….ummmm no…but that’s okay. I’m going to post it up here anyway and for the whole damn world to see. Why?? Because thanks to Beachbody and all the amazing women…and a few guys… who have supported me in my coaching and personal journey, I’m taking my sister to Cancun on a Success Club trip I’ve earned! I know she’ll be in a bikini and I wanna be, too! I’m not gonna sacrifice a minute of fun by worrying about my body on that trip either!
So, I basically have two choices at this point. I can suck it up in the swimsuits and the BODY I have and decide to just be comfortable and happy or I can let it derail some of my fun. I’ll think go with the first!
Oh, and, get really drunk of course.
