Build a Hump Day!


Bikini season.  Ready or not, here it comes.  I can’t decide if I’m bursting with excitement or screaming internally “I’m not ready yet!”  Regardless, we  are now down to 25 days before Memorial Day Weekend, and it’s time to get down to business.  

Today I’m declaring my focus for the next 2 months.  My booty.  Who’s with me??  Are you up for the challenge?  Ready to get the best backside you’ve ever had in your life?  Well, that’s my hope, and I’d love it if you’d come along for the ride!  Let’s set a few basic ground rules for our mission:

1.  I know that squats are the mother of all butt exercises and those I’ve been doing like a mofo (thank you Shaun T).  This week I’m adding in this series of exercises courtesy of Blogilates in an effort to get those muscles moving in as many different ways possible. 


Let's give these moves a go every day for the next week, and then look for a new set.  Each time we change up the routine, our body will have to adapt, and alas we’ll be confident in that bikini if it’s the last thing we do!   

2.  Cardio.  While we’re building and shaping those glutes, we can’t forget to burn off that fat too!  I’ve been doing T25, and although I’m loving it, I’ll probably start adding in a day or two of extra cardio each week, because my body can handle it and well.... 25 days.  Yikes!

3.  Drink lots of water.  You need water to build muscle as well as detoxify your body.  I know this. I am the worst at it. THE WORST.  I’ve got to be better.  Are you drinking enough water? 

If I had one of these, I'd drink a lot more water! ;)


When all is said and done, don’t forget to reward yourself with a hot pair of cheekies, hit the beach, and strut your stuff with pride!  You deserve it!  And be sure to check in each Wednesday for tips, tricks, exercises, and motivation.  Let’s do this together!  Hump Dayyyyy!

    1. Me toooo. In my 30's I question if I can still wear them so I know I'd better focus on that area to be sure!
