Snack Girl believes that swimsuit season is coming. There may be snow on the ground, but I feel it’s impending arrival.
Looking good in your swimsuit is one of those goals that shout from the glossy magazines. “Ten Minutes a Day To Your Swimsuit Body” or “Lose 10 Pounds Right Now” or how about “Afraid of Your Swimsuit – Who Isn’t?”
Here on Snack Girl, I have noticed a demographic shift. The under 18 year olds are here and reading my posts. What I have to say to them is very important so listen up, dear teenagers. Do not waste time on a perfectly toned body for summer.
Why? You may find this hard to believe, but who you are – if you are kind, generous, friendly, funny, etc. - is much more important than how you look in your bikini. Trust me.
But, I must say that even I have a certain amount of anxiety as summer approaches. I like to look good when my two children splash down their slippy-slide in my yard. I got my sun glasses, lawn chair, and my tank top.
Pssst – the secret to looking great is to focus on toning your arms. Michelle Obama knows a lot about arms because hers are AMAZING. The only thing that everyone will see naked most of the summer is your arms – unless you spend 50 hours per week at the beach or pool.
Don't stress out about washboard abs because almost no one is going to see them. You're welcome.
Do a toning and strengthening workout for your arms like the one below. You don’t even need weights – grab some cans of food and do these moves.
Having strong arms means you can lift the cooler to the car after your beach time. Who doesn’t love a woman who can carry her own cooler?
How do you deal with swimsuit season?
