To B-ikini or Not to B-ikini...???

So, the countdown to Hawaii is on like Donkey Kong... 
Husband, kid # 1, 2 and Mama are flying off  to the middle of the pacific for some serious it's February so winter-can-suck-it escapism.



We're staying at the Hilton Hawaiian Village on Waikiki Beach for 12 sun-filled days. Cool yeah?
Sorta. What's not cool is that we're leaving in 11 days and I am still fat-ish and pastey-white.
Massive Weight Loss 2010 (continuation of 2008, 2009) is in full effect and believe-you-me, Mama is workin' extra hard to try and fit into pre-baby #2 summer clothes.

My "Hawaiian Action Plan 2010", henceforth to be called HAP 2010 (abbreviations are a way of life for me)... is as follows:

 "Beatings beating beatings"...  in front of the T.V. with Jillain every nite.

A spray tan.    WTF??!.... ok there's always a first for everything.

Wearing a bikini....maybe-possibly-perhaps??? 





 ( the one I have is very similar to this,,,nothing krazy, modest, mom-appropriate fo-sho!)

Sooo, my issue is that I'm not sure if I have ANY business whatsoever wearing a bikini at this stage in the game. I've worked hard to get most of my kid #2 pregancy fat off. (Still have 10lbs to go, but I'm tall, 5'10 and can carry a surprising amount of poundage on this frame).
But I'm still not sure I can pull off the big "B".  This body has definately got some 'battle scars' from two babies... mummy tummy, etc.

I just don't like tankini's that much. They are definately a wonderful invention, and they are SOOOO much better than a one-piece (ick) but I do think that sometimes they can be a bit matronly and make you look even bigger because there is so much fabric to them! (as pointed out by my sister-in-law,,,in a loving way of course).  Sometimes less is more...strictly talking numbers on the scale and swimwear here!

Mama's torn....not sure what to do??

Um-hum yeah, I know what y'all are thinking. If I'm questioning it, then I already know the answer. It's a big fat NO. (no puns here)...
*sigh*
Tankini it is....

Hawaii, I am so jealous! And I totally think you should do the bikini. Why? Because the fact that you're wondering if you should means that you'll be fine. Because we all know that the people who wear bikinis (and shouldn't) didn't take the time to wonder. Flawed logic? Possibly, but we're talking about Hawaii! Wear the bikini.

Stopping by from Honey B's blog-- she's one of my favorite girls, so I thought I'd visit some of her friends!

How many ways can I beg you to take me along with you to Hawaii? What if I told you I have family there (which I do), and we could stay with them for free if you just paid my airfare? Pretty please?!?!

By the way, I LOVE my tankini-- the bottom even has a little skirt, which gives me MORE coverage!

I say if you want to don the bikini do it! I'm certain you'd love fabulous.

I seriously just died at your ferret comment on my J Lo. post!! But it is so true!! Why would she marry him?! Oh, the mysteries of the world.... Hope you're having a fabulous day!

not big on tank ones so far. Perhaps I'll wear them when I am a mom? or maybe even later than that? they just don't leave as sexy tan lines lol. I like bikinis for sure, but yeah I gotta work out a few weeks prior before I'm comfortable to be in one!

Savvy Gal said...

You should wear whatever that makes you happy!

OceanDreams said...

Wear whatever you feel comfortable in girl and I am sure you will look fabulous if you are doing The Shred every night, your legs must be burning! Good work! I hope you have such an amazing time on your trip!

CC said...

I'm sure you'll look gorgeous even if you decide to go with a bikini. And a tankini is a great option. :)
