Here are a few pics from her website….
This girl is awesome. She’s over 44 years old and has the body of a 16 year old swimsuit model…except better because she’s super fit! I love her no-nonsense attitude too. She doesn’t follow a diet or eat clean, she just doesn’t eat crap, junk, or sh$t. 🙂 She hates working out but she does it anyway because she loves being fit and looking good.
I’ve struggled with my body image my WHOLE life. Literally. I have a note from third grade that I kept in my backpack with an eating plan my older brother outlined for me in order to lose my baby fat. I’ve HATED getting in a swimsuit from about 8 years old on! I still loathe it to this day…unless I can wear a comfy, cute coverup OVER my suit. That’s ok. That works for me 🙂
I don’t necessarily want to look like Laura Harris (aka ChickenTuna). Her body is phenomenal, but I’m not sure it’s realistic for me. And unfortunately the only way I’ll stop drinking red wine is if I get pregnant. I just love that she says if you DO want to look like her, you cannot splurge EVER. There is no secret pill or magic juice to drink. It’s super simple but not super easy…bust your butt in the gym and eat really, really, really healthy all the time. She actually states that the key is more about your diet and less about your workout. She doesn’t spend countless hours in the gym–I think she lifts weights three times a week and does cardio for 30 minutes 5 times a week. Anyway, read through her website and you can find out all kinds of info! 🙂
I don’t know why but ever since the holidays I’ve been struggling bad with my eating habits. Working out isn’t normally a problem for me. I can get to Crossfit every day because I really do love it. But I have a hard time staying motivated to eat healthy at least 80% of the time. My motivation usually rises along with the temperatures. We are going on a family vacation to Sedona, Arizona in a month and will be spending a lot of time by the pool. I would also love to take a couples trip to Las Vegas and sit by the pool for a few days (in a cabana!). Actually, I would like to spend as much time as possible by a pool this summer, so it would be really nice to enjoy getting in a swimsuit at least once in my life.
So I’m on a journey…again…I’m sure it won’t be my last. Hopefully it will be successful and eventful and memorable though 🙂 Thanks Laura Harris for the motivation! I would love to hear from my readers…
what motivates you?
Let me know in the comments please! 🙂
And here is an amazing quote to end my post…I love this. Consistency truly is the key to success. That and hard work. IMHO. 🙂
