My struggle is at HOME at the town pools. This is the first year we have joined the town pool and we are there every day. I bought a few new 2-piece tankinis to wear to the town pools. I shouldn't care what people think, but c'mon people....I'm human too. I'm the Boot Camp Lady....the MUD GIRL, the fitness girl on Channel 13. I watch people look me up and down when they first meet me WITH MY CLOTHES ON. I can't imagine what goes on when I'm prancing around the town pool in my bathing suit. Therefore, I made a decision to wear one-piece bathing suits to the town pool....until my tan lines got all messed up. So...yesterday I sucked it up finally and put my new bikini on and caught up on my tan. I entered the gate a little self conscious, then I took off my cover up and put it all out there for the world to see. After about 5 minutes I was fine. I saw people looking me up and down, I'm sure noticing my dimples in my legs and the extra cushion around my mid-section. However, I held my head up, tied my halter a little extra tight to get the girls nice and high and I was fine! I tell my clients to be proud of who they are and what they look like. What kind of a role model would I be if I didn't implement the same beliefs? Here are some photos from my past few years of vacations. All 125 lbs of me :) I'm not perfect, but I work my TAIL off and I'm going to be proud of what God gave me...cellulite and all! DISCLAIMER: This blog entry is not about me complaining that i am fat. I am NOT fat, nor do I think so. In fact, I am extremely healthy and in great shape. The purpose of this entry is to let people know that we ALL are critical of our bodies and feel a bit self conscious at times. We see ourselves differently then others do. It's human nature!
