5 things you can do to look like a reef girl: I used to be jealous of these girls, but jealousy gets you nowhere right? So instead I just decided be my own confident reef girl ( who doesn’t have a professional to airbrush her butt ) who rocks her bikini! And here are my tips 🙂
1: Eat your fruits and vegetables! The more of these you eat, the less room for all that other crap in your stomach. Start your day with a huge (so big you have to put it into two separate big glasses to drink) smoothie of just fresh/frozen fruits, maybe some spinach or kale thrown in there, and just add water, no yogurt! Maybe a bit of unsweetened almond milk, but that’s it!
2: Get moving! Get sweaty! Go for a walk, go for a run, or just dance around in your room, the latter is my fav 🙂 , or come to one my aquafit class! Cardio is very important to burn calories and unwanted fat to reveal that beautiful butt! And it creates endorphins, which make us happy!
3: No more late night snacks! Try not to eat anything at least an hour before bed, two or three hours is even better. Believe it or not, when you go to sleep, your body does not want to digest that bowl full of gross ice cream you just ate, it wants to sleep! This will help to give your digestive system a break and keep you from consuming calories (even if it is something healthy!) that you don’t need. You will feel good in the morning and ready for that smoothie!
4: Do some lunges! Lunges (when done properly) are a great exercise for the quads and the glutes. Make sure that when you perform a lunge, you are keeping your knees in line with your ankles, knees are not to go past the toes, and drive all of your weight into your heels to activate those glutes! (you want to be able to lift your toes up) *If you have knee problems, please make sure its okay with your physio to do these exercises BEFORE you do them.
5: Okay, now you can do some squats. Just like with the lunges, when you do a squat you are driving all of your weight into your heels, knees are in line with your ankles, and the knees don’t go over the toes. Place your feet hip distance apart, or slightly further. You want to be able to lift up your toes! Another tip is start with no weight (so you don’t even have to go to the gym) and just squat slower, focusing on squeezing that booty! *During the up phase of the squat, put your hands on your butt to make sure the glutes are tight and working hard.
Now get going!! When I find where to buy a reef bikini I will let you all know 🙂
