Gearing up for the Bathing Suit

First of all, don't micro critique your physical appearance.

Today you are the youngest you will ever be and even though you can get leaner or thinner, genetics will determine the tautness of your skin.

So, having stated the obvious, we have to work on making our assets more appealing and our minuscule faults invisible....HOW?? Don't obsess over them!

If you have nice legs, show them off and do a few extra lunges to enhance their definition. If you have a nice back, find a suit that has interesting straps to draw attention to it. Don't worry about tan lines since you should be slathering yourself with sunscreen, right?! Also, when is the last time you tried pull ups? Maybe work them into your workout a little more. Use a pull up bar and bench or TRX if you can't do a regular pull up(don't worry, most of us can't!)

If you have a wide mid-section or a little too much pooch, look for a plunging neckline to draw attention upward and/or a broken pattern (pattern on top, solid or subtle through the middle).

Big booty?? YES! Think JLo and go with it! If not there are a lot of little skirts or shorts attached to bathing suit bottoms this season.

Finally, increase your water intake, eat a few more servings of raw bright colored veggies and stand up straight! Look around, even the skinniest girls have a pooch when they slouch!!

See, bathing suit season isn't so bad after all!
