Pinspiration Wednesday: Getting Yourself Summer Ready!

It's the first Wednesday of a new month, which means Justine, Leigh and I are teaming up to share our favorite Pinterest finds for getting ourselves into our best Summer-ready shape!

I don't know about you, but I am SUPER self-conscious about my body and who I'm around in a bathing suit. Always have been, and chances are, always will be. I love finding pins with easy in-home work out moves that target specific areas of my body that I'm most unhappy with. 

This pin was a great find with easy, at-home exercise moves to target the "back bulge".
