Fitness | Getting Bikini Ready for Summer is No Easy Feat
I don't know about you but i'm anticipating summer and being in a bikini. I've been working very hard on the nutrition portion of my fitness regimen which makes up 70% of my entire journey. Even when i'm eating healthy and watching my sugar intake, it's still hard to move fat off my body and build muscle. It's not a matter of weight lifting and doing cardio, i'm in the gym lifting weights & doing cardio 5 days a week, I'm in menopause and my body just responds slowly to exercising..... so it's really all about nutrition for me. I have (for the most part) given up sugar, I eat very healthy and wholesome foods that I have to actually prepare everyday. I realize that this is my life now and I love it! I still feel that I have a ways to go, I want to look slightly more muscular (or toned) for those of you that are scared of that word. I want to feel more stronger to keep doing the things that I love... playing golf with my husband, playing tennis with my grandchildren, going swimming in the summer and skiing in the winter!
