Spring just sprung, and now I’ve been seeing posts about getting into bikini shape for the summer. I guess it’s time for those posts. I’d like to offer a different post. This is how I’m going to not get a bikini body this summer. Join me and together we’ll rule as father and son. (Sorry, still on my Star Wars high.)
Eat Small Meals Often!
Eat I do! I eat when I wake up. I eat when the baby eats. I eat when the baby plays. Mostly, I eat with one hand, so all food needs to be grab-able and eaten with one hand while holding the baby with the other. That includes: chocolate like Barkthins, oatmeal cups, tacos, soups, pizza, milkshakes, smoothies, coffee, meatballs, blah blah.
Drink all the things. I drink a glass of water when I wake up and then nurse my coffee over email. Sometimes I only get three hours of sleep. Then I move on to more water, sometimes a Coke or another coffee drink or tea and more water.
There was one time I was able to get out of the house without the baby and enjoy a Moscow Mule. It was glorious. Then I pressed my luck the next night and it was disastrous. The baby screamed and cried until I rushed home. Oh well.
PS – Cut down on regular Coke? Pshhhhhhhhhhht. You do understand what it means to not have even two hours of consecutive sleep, right?
Get up from your desk every hour. I totally do that! I go pee. And I do it fast and with the door open, watching Spawn. I keep her attention while I do my business so she can’t wander around and tumble.
Flex Your Muscles – Online!
That’s right! You can go online (and work out your eyeballs)! I’ve been streaming Daredevil on Netflix every chance I get. This includes in bed while baby sleeps next to you. I block the light by using a pillow and hide under the covers (kinda).
Lastly, a serious “tip”:
Every body is a bikini body.
It doesn’t matter what size you are. You can rock a bikini at any size. I’ve seen it and it’s fantastic. Own your body. When you feel confident in your own skin, you can pull off any look. I wholly believe this.
What other “Tips” do you have?
