So this is the last of our quarantine edition and I wanted to make sure you guys were ready for Gemini season, I mean summer! My family will still be home for at least the month of May but that doesn’t mean we can’t be ready for when the outside opens up. Currently my wallet is hidden away for safekeeping cause your girl is a recovering shopaholic and the anxiety of the current situation got me relapsing like a hoe in a hen house. Pause… So that saying is something my grandmother used to say all the time. I’m still confirming exactly what this saying means but the longer we stay on quarantine the clearer it becomes. Rest in Heaven Cella Belle.
Anyway, back to the quarantine, Geminis, and summer. Have you guys been working on those summer bodies? Full disclosure, Yes I have been attempting to do some form of exercise at least every day. I drink protein shakes and I wear two different waist trainers. I’ll include them below for you. I eat according to quarantine rules which means when I feel like it I eat. If I don’t feel like eating, then I don’t eat anything. Yes, I have tried your virtual workout, your beginning yoga, Pilates, Hiit training, and twerk classes. Sometimes, I’m just not feeling it and sometimes you’re not feeling it either. Today I am telling you to do what you can do! Do what feels good and feels right. Nobody is promised tomorrow and I don’t want my description of today to be that I spent 4 out of the 24 hours in the downward dog position. Last week I did yoga 3 times out of the week. This week I only did 1. Maybe next week I will do 7.
The summer will get this body regardless. I’m seeing many crop tops, wide-leg pants, and maxi skirts in my immediate future, even if it is just around the house. Next week let’s get into some fashion and my first giveaway!! Leave a comment on the blog post with your favorite summer staple. Is it bomb glasses? What about prints? Your favorite lip gloss? I will be choosing one winner for a $20 gift card to Ulta Beauty to order some of your favorite makeup essentials! Yay, you.
Here are the deets on the waist trainers: Yellow (Along Fit Sweat Sauna Vest $25), Pink (Sweet Sweat Waist Trimmer for women $25). The Sweet Sweat is my favorite. I bought it about a year ago. Both items are from Amazon.
Until the outside opens….. Y’all keep it classy
Two things happened this week! I celebrated 16 years since joining Zeta Phi Beta Sorority inc. ZZZZZZ PHI and I attended Curves En Blanc Slay and Stay virtual All White Party sponsored by Maui Bigelow and Lane Bryant. I slayed and I stayed!
