Swimsuit Season 2011: Time To Get A Hot Bod

In the United States, Memorial Day Weekend, which comes at the end of this month, kicks off the summer season. And the summer is swimsuit season. While, for many of us, heading to the beach represents a time to kick back and relax, getting into a bathing suit after cooler months of inactivity often creates a kind of fear – call it “Swimwear Related Anxiety” or “SRA.” I only partially joke.

While many women would like to hit the beach looking like Heidi Klum, the stunning blonde, German model of Victoria’s Secret fame – who by the way was recently reported to have renewed vows with her hubby, singer Seal, at possible presidential candidate Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach – and plenty of guys would like to strut their stuff with a body to rival actor Mathew McConaughey – recently in the movie The Lincoln Lawyer – or the Jersey Shore’s Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino – who roasted The Donald a couple of month’s ago – the reality is that to have a good beach bod takes work. The good news is it can be done.

Can you get shipshape for the shore for the summer of 2011 (say that three time fast)? Well, I’m sure some readers of CYInterview already are. But for those of us who aren’t, I have some good news.

Looking good nearly naked takes work, but it really is about maintaining some basic habits yearlong. If we eat a bit less and move a bit more over the course of the year, chances are by summer we’ll look sleeker and more beach-worthy.

But now, with the summer season starting within weeks, what can be done?

Okay, we can’t completely transform ourselves in a few weeks. However, by reasonably tightening up on our diets a bit and getting some more activity – at a level that’s healthy for us – we can look better than we currently do.

Like I said, looking good is a function of maintaining good habits over time. The more time that transpires while we do the right thing, the better chance we have of increasing our hotness quotient.

So, get to sweating a little bit more through some responsible exercise and don’t sweat how you’ll look at the beach this summer. Because remember, if you start some good habits now, and stick with them, by the time the summer of 2012 and beyond comes, you’ll stand a good chance of dazzling folks as you strut your stuff on the shore or by the pool.

Before beginning any diet or exercise program, consult your physician. Remember, we here at CYInterview want you to look and feel good, but we are not in the business of recommending diet or exercise routines. Whatever you do is your responsibility and at your own risk.
