" Transformation of a Junk Food Mom: I Declare a Mulligan!!

I Declare a Mulligan!!

I have fallen so hard off the healthy train I think there may a permanent imprint of the golden arches on my forehead!  I'm back to eating junk, and it has been well over a month since I've worked out. I can't believe I let myself revert to the "junk food mom".  Much of it had to do with stress related to work - such is the life of a sales rep.  Numbers are down, you've got to get them up.  Most of my evenings and nights entailed working, working, working and eating out.  No fun at all! 

Well, I can happily say my numbers are back up, so I'm declaring a "Do Over"!  I can't wait to get back on the healthy train.  My main goal is to tone, tone, tone.  I went swimsuit shopping a couple of weeks ago, and it was depressing with a capital D!  I went to several department stores and to Just Add Water but all of the swimsuits looked horrible on me.  I was ready to cry.  I even called my husband and told him be prepared to shell out several grand for a new set of boobs!  And I was not kidding.  I was ready to start looking for a plastic surgeon that week. 

Luckily for my husband, I made one last stop at a local outlet mall that had a Swim n' Sport.  This place was awesome!  They had several cute suits on the rack.  I think I must have taken in 10-12 suits to try on.  I prayed that one of them would work.  I was ecstatic when the first suit actually looked good on me.  I had boobs!!  Turns out several of the suits were super cute, and I spent an hour trying to figure out which one to buy.  It was a toss up between two.  Since I am horrible at making decisions, I ended up buying both!  It's amazing how much $$ such little fabric costs. I must admit they are well worth the money though.  My husband didn't want to know the final damage, but I told him it was much much less than a boob job, lol!

Here is a pic of one:

The brand is La Blanca and is really great for the not-so-well endowed ladies.  If only I looked like the model above! 

I couldn't find a pic of the second suit, but the brand is Skye and looks very similar to the one above.  I'm hoping that if I start working out this week, I can tone up and rock these suits!  We shall see....

Here's to hoping I can stay on track!!  Thanks for reading!



  1. What a coincidence, I found my suit there too! Mine is Ralph Lauren, the aqua blue paisley. I love it. Have you tried halter bikini tops? They work best for my small girls. Good luck getting back on track. Too bad we don't live closer so we could be more support to each other.

  2. Hey Libby! I'm so glad I checked out that store. I was so tempted just to head home after Just Add Water. I did try the halters, but they didn't do much for me. We'll have to get together soon!
