Operation Skinny Jeans: 90 Days Til Summer Swimsuit Challenge!!

90 Days Til Summer Swimsuit Challenge!!

So as you might have saw on Instagram, I have lost my damn mind.

I blame Val and Marcy from Fabulous Chick Gets Fit and Will Run For Beer, respectively.

Bitches.

But really I am excited in a sick sort of way. It's story time.

Once upon a time there was a girl named Jess. She hated the summer time and swim suits and all of that nonsense. She was uncomfortable and felt fat as hell and even tho she liked tanning and swimming, the whole idea of it made her want to barf.

She even spent over $100 for a swimsuit two years ago that made her feel okay about herself.


So yeah. 

60 lbs later, I am ready to make a change. I don't want to wear a one piece this year. I am so excited to go to Beachbody summit in Vegas this year, but I am mortified to be the fattest woman there. Stupid, I know, but I don't want to feel uncomfortable in my own skin. I want to feel awesome, especially at the pool parties. 

And I was talking to Marcy and Val about Val's amazing progress, and we decided that having a goal where she would have to be naked helped, so we made a naked goal too. A stupid, terrible idea of a naked goal. 

Bikinis by June 21st. 

Kill me. 



But really we are all in this together. Marcy and Val are going to be amazing accountability for me, and we will be accountability for you! 

Wanna join the challenge? Here's how!

So here is what you have to do:
1. Get a really small bikini. Just kidding. GET WHATEVER SWIMSUIT YOU WANT! 
2. Take a picture in said swimsuit. 
3. Work your ass off for the 90 days leading up to summer to look amazing in that swimsuit. 
We will be checking in weekly on our blogs. Feel free to check in with us weekly, bi weekly, every 30 days, whatever. We just want to help hold ourselves and others accountable until summer comes and we can rock out with our new bodies for summer in a hot new bathing suit.

During this challenge, do whatever workout you would like. I am doing a mix of 21 Day Fix and P90X3. And maybe Pump... I am thinking about it. But you must dedicate yourself to being consistent for all 90 days!

Here is my before pic. I just did it in my underwear because I didn't find a bikini I loved. Mama needs more support.



My goal is to work on my core and legs. Arms would be nice too, but those are my goal.


90 days, ready or not, here we come!!

  6. I'm in! I love this idea, and you are all huge inspirations!!!! For the past few years we have had season passes to a water park near our house.....and every year I dread putting my swimsuit on and walking around that place. Not this year! I am determined to make this the summer where I don't dread going - and instead I just feel comfortable and have fun with my girls and hubby at the water park!!!!! Now I just need to find a swimsuit to use for the motivation!!! Thanks!!!

  7. For professional reasons I could never post an underwear/bikini pic online and to be honest I don't have an urge to ever really wear a bikini and I'm fine with that, but I am committed to getting in better shape for this summer so I'll join in :)

  13. You are such an inspiration! I would love to join in this challenge, however I have about zero self confidence and self discipline (which is how I've gotten to the place that I'm in). Just the thought of wearing any type of swim suit that shows any part of my mid drift makes me want to both throw up AND jump off a cliff. I don't know if I can muster up the courage to join... I wish I knew you in person! lol. I've been following you for a while and you are an awesome inspiration!

  16. Just found your blog - awesome! So in there with you - like someone else, I can't post a bikini pic for professional reasons, but I will take one for myself (and maybe be brave enough to share it in 90 days if the difference is impressive enough!). Thanks for an extra motivation for my weightloss! :-)

  22. I'm in! I've always been a size six but I've gained a couple of pounds over the winter, so I'd like to use this challenge to lose those pounds. I'm gonna try C25K for the first time (I'm scared lol) and will be eating healthy as most as I can. I'm just not comfortable with showing photographs of myself in bikini online, so I'll just keep those to myself

  23. I'm in! I've always been a size 6 but have gained a couple of pounds over the winter, so I'll use this challenge to get those pounds off! I'll do this by starting C25K (scared lol) and eating healthy as much as I can. I'll just keep my photographs to myself since I'm not comfortable with sharing those online.
