Honestly, it’s pretty difficult to gather up the courage to wear more revealing clothes & actually feel 100% secure & good about yourself. Especially if you’ve been previously struggling with your body image.

Crop tops, bikinis, bralettes, the like – we’re our worst critics & it’s hard to feel comfortable when you’re practically half naked on the streets, right?

As a girl living in SoCal, it’s no surprise that I frequent beaches. Or have to brave through 100Β°F weather. Or maybe go out to a concert / music fest.

& during the summer? Hot & sweaty gets taken to a whole otherrrr level, ugh. 

The BIGGEST dilemma, though? Not knowing what the heck to wear without sweating buckets, & feeling super nervous about belly fat.

Do you relate???

This summer, I finally learned to get over this. Hating yourself & your body behind-the-scenes really isn’t going to do anything for you. I mean, dreams & wishes don’t come true unless you work for them!

Dreams & wishes don’t come true unless you work for them. πŸ₯

We can’t choose where the weight we lose comes from … What we CAN do is tighten it up so it’s barely even noticeable.

So, before sunny beach days, music festivals like Hard Summer, & concerts like Flume & Yellow Claw, I worked ab exercises to tighten up – EVERY SINGLE DAY – & I got results!

β˜€οΈ Running :

Running is really just a test of endurance & perseverance. It can be tough, but it’s an aspect of fitness you really can’t go without – kind of like your ride-or-die best friend. In fact, let’s just think of running like a friendship. The more you spend time improving it, the more you’ll like it. 

& yes, this is coming from someone who used to really, really, REALLY hate running. I won’t go as far to say that I LOVE it now, but the feeling you get after a successful running sesh? Nothing is more satisfying.

When running, especially if you’re just starting out or if you’re trying to increase your distance, you’d probably feel some soreness in your abs – a.k.a. you’re getting a hella good workout there.

β˜€οΈ Ab Coaster :

There are a ton of machines out there that work out your abs. One of my faves is the Ab Coaster.

Not gonna lie, it’s actually fun to use ( ha, imagine that! ).

Basically, you simply kneel on the pad & move forward & backward along the curved track, over & over again, while contracting your abs & being careful not to use your arms to pull yourself.

The best part : it doesn’t strain your neck or your lower back. It also works on your obliques, so it’s pretty versatile.

β˜€οΈ Crunches :

These are really basic & simple – & if we’re being honest, you’ve probably done these at school since you were like 5.

Seriously, THEY WORK.

& if you find yourself on a busy sched or on a total time crunch ( HA! ), theseee WILL save your life … & they only take a couple of minutes.

I prefer to do my crunches on an abdominal trainer. I find it easier, but that could just be me.

If you’re down for some ab-toning, I’ve got you covered : I drew up a super easy-to-follow + effective workout routine to help you get started! Check it out below!

Whenever I know that there’s a specific event coming up that calls for tighter / skimpier clothes, my ab workouts get more intense.

It might be really exhausting & I may hate myself the morning after … But if you ask me if it were worth it? HELL to the YES.

& when you see yourself in the mirror? You totally won’t regret.

I understand that body image is a struggle. It’s hard to believe even for a second that you can just get over it that easily. But, if you try & try, you’ll definitely see results.

& you know what they say … seeing is believing. πŸ˜‰


So, I’m interested : What event are you toning your abs for? What are some things that you do to tighten up? Let me know! β™‘
