Bikini Bod Countdown - Week 2

Thanks for the awesome feedback and comments. I will definitely get back to everyone =)

Week 2: So, not much change this week except for the fact that I felt pretty bloated. I hate being a girl sometimes. Honestly, it discouraged me quite a bit in the beginning of the week. I was frustrated bcos I felt like after all the work I put into keeping fit & being healthy, one small change in diet can effect my body so noticeably & adding to this issue was that it was that 'time of the month'. The more frustrated I got the more I munched out which totally counteracts my efforts.

Once I caught myself in this negative pattern I realized that you always have a choice. You can always pick yourself back up and not let negative thoughts rule your mind. Instead on focusing solely upon results remind yourself what you have achieved, how good your body feels & then ask yourself what's your next step. It's easy to feel defeated but taking things one step at a time will keep you on track rather than overwhelm you.

Here are some tips if you have problems with bloating:
-Find out the real cause behind it. Is it due to hormonal change, digestive problem, water retention? Once you know, its much easier to prevent or treat
-Drink chamomile tea. I hear ginger and peppermint also help
-Try dry brushing or a detox bath
-if you can, cut out coffee and alcohol
-dont eat when you're upset or anxious
-limit your salt intake
-try doing PAVANMUKTASANA. It's a very simple and basic yoga pose. Translated its called the 'wind release' pose


  1. You have a freaking amazing stomach! I am super envious of you right now :P I need to start going to the gym more often -______- Keep it up girl! :) <3

  2. Hi Cindee!! :D

    You are looking H O T. To be honest, you are so fit the way you are already! But I'm sure you're tired of hearing that, and I'm all for more toning if that's what you desire. I'm sure by the end of your countdown you're going to have rock hard and very defined abs! YOU CAN DOOOO IT.

    Thanks for posting about how to alleviate bloating! I agree, being a girl can be so difficult sometimes. I'm curious about dry brushing and detox bath... going to check that out!

    I also read your previous post about the workout channel. Seems interesting! Have you also tried p90x? My boyfriend does it and he saw results in a week. The ab workout is really intense, maybe you can look it up on youtube and try it out if you have time. :)

    ttyl, good luck with the rest of your workout!

  3. You look amazing Cindee!
    You're truly an inspiration.
    I'm going through a breakup right now and I need to focus on me right now.
    Good luck with your bikini bod challenge! Your results are incredible so far.

  4. Babe! You make me wanna do something to my tummy now! I was just getting comfortable in my flabs coz I remember some people say women look more womanly and elegant with fuller bellies. I think that's just my excuse for not working that tum. LoLz I don't think I can ever be as commited as you are when it comes to working out though so I'm just gonna do some crunches for now. Hope you attain that bikini bod just the way you want it.

    I'm bloating right now... PMS... Thanx for the tips. I read about the dry body brushing on some website too and tried it once for my constant headache. I felt more refreshed but am lazy to continue.

  5. i just started working out and its my second week =) its so hard but it'll be worth it in the end! you pic up there is my inspiration! lol

  6. Cindee... you're so hawt, just keep doin what you're doin because all of us would love to look like you!
