The Beach - Beach Body Before and After - Siesta Key

After                                                                                              Before
So I went to my favourite beach in the entire world today: Siesta Key in Sarasota Florida. Last year when I came to Florida I went to this beach as well (in my mind, most beautiful beach in the world, or at least, that I have ever been to).

Last year I tanned at the beach. I didn't walk around or even want to sit up because I was big and ashamed of my weight. When I went to get this picture taken by the water, I remember thinking I looked so good and so hourglass shape. I put on my pants because I didn't want to be seen in my bathing suit bottom walking and I was afraid people would look at me.

The 'After' pic was taken as soon as I got to the beach today. As soon as it was snapped I stripped off all my clothes and walked around in a string-bikini. I walked around all day in that bikini, for two hours up and down the beach and I tanned not caring if people saw me, because damn I looked good.

Of course this confidence faded maybe... an hour and a half into the walk when I started getting self conscious that people were looking at my jiggly-loose skin legs or my belly. But after 10 minutes of walking around after I hit that body-image-low, I picked myself back up and kept strutting down the beach for all to see. :)

  13. Vitamins A, B-complex, C, and D are found in Sarsaparilla.

    Furthermore eating very often holds the nitrogen balance of the body high so the body doesn't eat away on its own muscle reserves. A great way to always maintain the proper form is to leave your feet firmly planted on the ground, and always grip the bar no more than shoulder width apart.

  14. Its such as you learn my thoughts! You seem to grasp so much about this, like you wrote the guide in it or
    something. I think that you could do with some percent to pressure the message
    house a bit, however instead of that, this is wonderful
    blog. An excellent read. I'll certainly be back.

  15. Heya! I realize this is kind of off-topic but I needed
    to ask. Does running a well-established website such as yours require a large amount of work?
    I am brand new to blogging however I do write in my diary everyday.

    I'd like to start a blog so I can share my own experience and feelings online. Please let me know if you have any kind of ideas or tips for new aspiring blog owners. Appreciate it!

  18. Amid the most successful applications of anaerobic treatment
    for the oxidation of toxic pollutants is the case of the treatment of effluent in the
    plastic industry containing high concentrations of terephthalate.
    Recently, I read an article in Scientific American by Adam Hadhazy.
    All of that is changing now, thanks to a $65 million upgrade to
    the local wastewater plant.
