I’m going to get REALLY embarrassed later on in this post.  REALLY embarrassed.  But more on that later…

So, it’s been 12 weeks since I embarked on the Project Tighten Up journey.  It’s been an exciting time and I’ve seen my body go through many changes.  I have really enjoyed keeping the photo log especially as when you can actually SEE the changes (as opposed to just a number on the scale or a measurement) you can really judge your success.  I encourage everyone to do it!

Publishing the photos on the blog though has been another story!  Every single time I get a nervous, sick feeling in my tummy.  It’s really not an enjoyable thing, putting half-naked photos of yourself out there on the internet!  I think to myself, “Oh god, FRIENDS are going to see this, FAMILY will see this… GASP, people from WORK are going to see this!”.  But it’s really something that I try to put out of my head as one of my main motivators for putting myself out there the way that I do is so that I can encourage you (yes, YOU!) to lead a healthier lifestyle.  It’s the old “If I can do it, you can do it too” story.   And I know that it is working from all your wonderful comments and emails.  I’m so proud of you guys!  :D

Okay, here we go!  Lights, camera, ACTION!

(Thank you Alexis for the hand-me-down bikini!)

Can see some good changes in my legs and butt this month!  Back is getting leaner too, the line down my back is getting more defined.   And yes, I’m wearing fake tan.  I couldn’t face another ghostly white bikini pic!

Sigh.  Okay here is the embarrassing part.  I decided that I should see what I look like in the dreaded bikini and heels combination.  I’m going to have to learn how to rock this look when I compete as well as feel confident too so I thought I’d give it a crack.  My oh my, it’s so fricken awkward.  Haha

Oh hey there, no I don’t feel awkward AT ALL.

This my sexy look… haaaaaaay!

Can you say BOOTAY?

Well then.  Now that I am significantly flushed with embarrassment I will bid you adieu!

Coming soon… my new muscle and strength building body recomposition diet!
