Don’t worry. Wear the darn Bikini.

With Memorial Day weekend almost here, I highly encourage you to not stress out one bit. About bikinis, swimwear, how you look, or those extra pounds you were hoping to shed that decided to extend their stay a little longer. Because guess what? No one (besides you) really cares. At the beach, most people are looking at the ocean, relaxing and enjoying themselves, not sitting there scrutinizing your body. At the pool, everyone is so content to have a body of water to dive into, they aren’t bored and looking for people to judge. And you know what? If they are, they are a douchebag. Sorry. But that’s my favorite word to describe people like that.

So don’t worry about impressing anyone. Give yourself a break, take off that coverup, dive on in, and and kick off summer feeling good.

Eat me. When talking fruits and veggies, it’s a no brainer. You gotta eat them as much as possible. Don’t like them? Well guess what, you aren’t three any more, so deal with it. It’s the easiest way to 1: get nutrients into your body, 2: fill up in a healthy way, and 3: Eat lower calorie snacks and meals.

When I gained a lot of weight after living in France for a while (what can I say, I indulged) I met with a nutritionist, and in a world where all you hear is don’t eat this, don’t eat that, don’t don’t don’t…he gave me the best advice: eat as much produce as you want. I love to eat. This was great news. Yhatzee.

So, just try and eat some sort of fruit or veggie with every meal (sorry, fried and covered in Ranch dressing does not count), and you’ll notice a difference. Your body will start to crave them, and then it’s smooth sailing from there.

When the weather is ohhhh so sweet, the last place you want to be is in a gym, on a treadmill, trying not to notice the dude next to you who just happens to be wearing running shorts (yes, THOSE kind) and a sweater under his too tight tank top. Although people watching in a gym is always entertaining (especially if you are at Gold’s gym in Venice, it’s unreal), I’d rather think of a way to be get some cardio in the great outdoors…particularly at the beach. So, walk your dog, go for a barefoot run, surf, paddle, swim, dive, cruise around on your bike, or splash around in the waves for a bit. Just get out, get creative, and get motivated by the mixture of some fresh air and a little sweat.

Pull-ups, squats, sprints, cardio, yoga, lunges, push ups, stretching, core work, warming up … the stairmaster. There is some exercise out there that you hate doing. Well, here’s some even better news. It’s probably what you need to be doing. Exercises in the “I hate doing” category are usually there because, well…you are weak at it. I used to hate pull-ups, because I couldn’t do any. Now I can do a bunch, and I must admit, I definitely don’t mind them anymore. I hate stretching, becasue I’m extremely inflexible. So yeah. I need to definitely stretch more.

My advice? If you hate it, you should probably be doing that exercise until you don’t hate it anymore. It has some pretty good results.
