{monthly mixtape} beach body june + the leopard me

UntitledUntitled Untitled

After sitting poolside for a while we dove into the mock-rattan tepee for a more comfortable place to hide from the sun. Almost immediately I heard Joe say "oh, baby...give me your camera." He could see what I couldn't - the new leopard-like me! I was completely covered in the floral/spotted patterns being cast onto the mat. It was so rad.

These are just two of the images from the photo shoot that ensued.  I wasn't going to share them as I don't exactly dream of sharing photos of me in a bikini (what up IBTC ladies!) but after giving it some thought I decided that these shadows were too cool for pride, or embarrassment. Besides, I'm practically camouflaged and they are somewhat related to this month's mix tape: Beach Body June.

I've been working out almost every day since we moved and in order to fight the inevitable drag, I made this month's mix my ultimate motivating, butt-kicking, sweat and burn soundtrack. It's a mix of electronic, indie and rap beats that starts off mild, gets a little faster, and then mellows for a cool down. If rock is more your style then check out April's mix - that one can really get me going! What type of music motivates you to get active?
