Our Appetizer.: SHAPE

November 13, 2014


That's what I'm trying to change. 
For as long as I can remember I've never really had an issue with my body. I've always fit into smaller sizes, I mean shit I wore Abercrombie Kids jeans till I graduated high school. Now all of the sudden I'm starting to think that I need to change. I need to eat better not less and I need to workout smarter not more. Oh and that thing called alcohol...well I need to take a break from that. 

I'm going on a beach vacation for Christmas to Punta Cana and I want to look hot. Not just hot but HOT like smoking hot. I want to be confident and to be able to wear my bikini all day and feel great about it. I also want to look hot for my man friend. How many of you try to look hot for your men?! I better see all of those hands go up. I don't want to get comfortable and lose sight of my waist line. 

I need to get back to this weight minus the thighs. I need to tone those down a little more. This picture was taken in Cancun a few years ago and I think I was at 120 pounds so I have about 15 pounds to lose. 

I've been going to the gym a lot and working out hard, my issue is what I eat. I know with time and determination I will get back to my normal body and be perfectly confident and content again. 

Till then, I will be posting my workouts and what I eat. So don't get sick of me and join me on this journey. I challenge you to post what you eat each day to see where you can improve and become a healthier better you. 

What do you do to get ready for a beach vacation?
What do you do at the gym?
What is your workout routine?
Do you try to make healthy choices when you eat?
How do you do when you go out? Do you eat healthy?


  1. Sadly I think it's more about what you eat than how much you workout, but it sounds like you have a plan and desire to make it happen!! :)

    1. I agree with the issue being what I eat. I just always crave everything!!!! I am such a foodie!

  2. Currently working on the same thing. i want to look good for my man friend and for myself and i've got about 30 pounds to go..

    1. Just keep working towards your goal and you will get there. I think it's better to make lifestyle changes rather than just diets.

  3. i think you look great! but if you really do want to tone up i'd def drink less.. i drank a lot in college and packed on the lbs, then i got sick and couldnt drink and now i just stay away from it for the most part. also when you workout try to incorporate free weights! you will burn a ton of calories and you'll get toned/muscles and switch up your exercises so you dont get bored. good luck! xo jillian - cornflake dreams

    1. Thanks! I know the drinking has to stop. I probably sound like such an alchy right now but I love my wine and I love having drinks whenever I go out. I'm a very social person, so I always love going out and hanging out with friends and meeting new people. This usually includes alcohol and then food because I always get hungry when I drink. Ugh it's an endless terrible cycle.
