Bikinis and Asanas

The prospect of a long day at the beach makes me panic. There is no harder work I can think of than taking myself off to somewhere pleasant, where I am forced to stay for hours and 'have fun'.
--Phillip Lopate
It's that time of year every woman dreads . . . The sun has come back, and the cool, sweet waters of the swimming pool are calling. The sands of the ocean shore are singing . . . and we refuse to come out of our locker. That yellow polka dot bikini has reared its adorable head. Doom to us all. Or maybe not. It's a near miracle my old bikini fits--shopping for another is such a pain. Designers only seem to make clothes for sticks or girls who don't like to keep even teeny tiny secrets from onlookers, but oh well.

I can't wait for a beach trip, for laying out by the pool. Summertime is the season of water, and I love it. Chris had better have his sun screen, ready, because his wife's begging for the ocean :)

So here we are, swimsuit season. What do you do to get ready for it? Work out? Buy a new suit? Tan? (I kind of look like a vampire right now, myself haha).

I started using this workout DVD this week just for fun, and it's amazing.
I love that you can create a custom workout based on your needs and time, plus I feel fantastic after I finish.


  1. I just joined the Y and I am loving the classes... especially Zumba!! A bathing suit is the last thing on my mind right now. The extra 50 pounds I am carrying around is what plagues me.

  2. I've heard Zumba is tons of fun. Glad you like it! :)


Good morning, Starshine! The Earth says, "Hello!"
