Coming Home Bikini Prep Series: Post 17 “Where Should We Put the Weight?”

Let’s not lie to ourselves. We measure are worth in so many different ways. We look at how much we can lift in the gym, we look at the scale in the bathroom. Really, these two examples should be looked at how can we defy gravity? Some of us even think about how much or […]


Coming Home Bikini Prep Series: Post 16 “No One is Going to Do It For You, You Need to Create Your Own Happiness”

This is something I believe in fully. It’s true for so many aspects of your life. You can’t go to a specific college to make your parents happy or have a specific course of study. You can’t lose weight to get someone to notice you. You also need to search hard and find what makes […]

Coming Home Bikini Prep Series: Post 15 “Gazelles Are My Idols”

Ok they’re not mine, but the metaphor I read was kind of nice. Something about them being free. The idea of that sounded like a fantasy. I’m currently writing this on my iPhone as we start our final dissent into Washington DC. That’s how the captain said it. Very official. One thing I do on […]

Sarah Lynn Fitness Cookie Challenge: Oatmeal Raisin Cookies, Minus the Raisins

I think at this point in the challenge, we have a pretty clear understanding that I like cookies and I don’t really discriminate against them in anyway. There are some cookies I prefer over others – I like my cookies soft and kind of chewy, not necessarily doughy, but chewy. I like the soft sugar […]

Coming Home Bikini Prep Series: Post 13 “It’s About Visualizing the Light at the End of the Tunnel”

Today is the last day of my 5th week of prep. I can’t believe it’s been 5 weeks already. Tomorrow starts the last day of my volume block and then I’m going into a strength block for three weeks, there may be an increase in cardio during these three weeks since I won’t necessarily be […]
