Bikini Challenge Check In and Easter Giveaway!

Happy Monday!

After a crazy weekend of work and the specialty prom hair I can breathe a sigh of relief today. I have the day off and this gal will be food prepping and house cleaning. With Easter coming up this weekend, I have a busy week followed by some time off, yay! My sister and my niece will be back at my parents house so I will get to see them. I'm 22, have no kids, I only have a niece and a nephew, holiday shopping can be a little tough for me, because psh, I don't know what kids want?! And both of them live over 2 hours away so seeing them a lot makes it tough. But I found a loophole, Toys'R'us has free in store pick up and luckily Wichita and Kansas City have Toys'R'Us. I was able to pick out Easter gifts for each of them and have them sent to the stores for my family to pick up and give to them on Sunday!  Thank goodness for the internet! 



Today is the beginning of week 4 of my Bikini challenge! Read about all the details HERE and see my befores. I forgot to take my week two pictures last Sunday, so I here are Week one and Week Three pictures, a two week differences between the two.





I also was able to feel the success of a Non Scale Victory today, I've been wearing yoga pants to the gym to get more sweat pumping, and I've been wearing jean shorts on the regular days. I put on a pair of my nike shorts for the first time in weeks and they were super loose compared to normal. That made me smile pretty big. Its not always about the number on the scale, the inches and toning play such a huge part in the process too.

What are some of your non scale victories?

Who's ready for some Easter FUNNN??

The majority of the population know how much I love my Cyclone Cup, and they just added THREE new fun colors to their line up.


So for Easter I filled my cyclone cup with jelly beans, The person who either guesses the number of jelly beans or gets the closest will win a FREE Cyclone cup in a color of their choice! You have until Saturday April 19th at Midnight to enter, Sunday I will determine a winner and the winner will be announced on Monday the 21st! Comment your guess below, make sure that you also include your email address incase you are the winner!! (Limit one guess per person, US residents only please :D )

(Note, the mixer is not in here, there are only Jelly Beans filling the space!)

Happy Guessing!!

How was your weekend?

    Your bikini pics look great!! You've done so good!! I'm that mom in the store the night before easter...searching for candy and toys for baskets...and putting them together at midnight. Maybe this year, I'll get it in a little earlier!
    Some of my nsv's include wearing a size 14 pants last week, and being able to run longer distances without knee or shin pain or being so out of breath!!

    I had a bit of a laugh at your bikini pics... not because of the bikini (you look awesome!) but because at first glance I thought you were flexing while holding that pink tote... totally looks like that in the bottom two pics if you look quick! :)
