Operation Red Bikini-The Details

Morning everyone. I know it's about time I explain what "Operation Red Bikini" is all about.

As most of you remember, I ordered a red bikini a few weeks back. Why would I do such a thing? Because I'm half crazy. Because I needed motivation. And you know what's crazy? It worked. That's when Leigh Ann and I came up with this crazy idea to start a "challenge" if you will, among the blogging community.

Operation Red Bikini isn't about bikinis. I know realistically, not every single person will ever feel comfortable in a bikini. Hell, I'm not even positive I will yet. This can be about a pair of shorts. Maybe you have never felt comfortable in shorts above the knee. This summer, though, will be that summer. It can be that summer. Maybe you have never worn a sleeveless shirt. You hate your arms. This summer can be that summer. Operation Red Bikini can be about a one piece. It can be about a pair of jeans that are two sizes smaller than you are in right now. Red Bikini can be about whatever you want it to be.

I am not trying to weigh 120 pounds. I frankly don't feel like I'd look good at that weight anyway. (Plus, I'd have to eat blades of grass and dust to lose that much weight). I just want to feel comfortable and sexy and super duper hot in a two piece bathing suit. I am 25 years old. I feel like I deserve to have a summer (or three) in which I feel like a 25 year old. Carefree, comfortable and happy in my own skin. I've talked before about how even in high school I swam in layers. I stuck out like a sore thumb while all my friends pranced around in skimpy bathing suits while I looked on, jealous. That's over now. My latest girl crush and motivation is Miss Sasha Fierce herself, Beyonce (pronounced bee-yons, because that's how I pronounce it every single time I say it, probably just to be annoying)
I feel like this body type is attainable. She's not stick thin, she's healthy. I  feel like I can get there, as long as I continue working hard. 

I may or may not have this posted up in my pantry:
Whatever works. Don't judge me!


Ok so now you're thinking to yourself, "you still haven't told us what the f this Red Bikini crap is about. Here are a few of the deets:

1. Leigh Ann and I have started a board on Pinterest that can be found here, full of  "Operation Red Bikini" motivation. If you aren't following yet, do so now. We both pin to the board and will eventually pin After photos to the board.We also encourage you to start your own board with this title. If you do, let us know! We'd love to follow along.

2. Once you decide what your goal will be (again, getting into a pair of shorts, a sun dress, a size 10, a bikini, etc.--remember, it can be ANYTHING) comment with it on this post, or email it to me at kassiemromero@gmail.com).  When the challenge is nearing its end, we will do a link up on both Leigh Ann's and my blog where you can link up with a post you do about your journey to get to your goal, as well as a photo of you in your goal piece.

3. After the link up, all participants will have a week to vote on the best story or transformation. The winner will receive an enormous prize package including some of our favorite fitness-related products. When I say enormous I mean enormous. It will not only include tons of products but it will include plenty of fun summer accessories and goodies that you will all want. Trust me. I want them all. And there will be even more.

4. Follow both Leigh Ann and I on Instagram (if you aren't already) and we will post pictures of some of the prizes every week. So far we've secured some amazing donations from some of our favorite companies. If you have a product or connection to a product you think would be fun to include, let me know!

5. Any time you post a photo on instagram related to the challenge, use the hashtag #operationredbikini. We would like our winner to have been a participant for several months before the end of the competition, so start hashtagging! So far we've posted photos of food, workouts, etc. with this hashtag. There are no rules, as long as it relates somehow!

6. Whatever your goal is, post it somewhere you will see it all the time. I have my bikini hanging outside my closet door. I also have those Bee-yons pictures in my pantry, so it's never far from my mind. Show us where you post it too! Instagram that stuff all ova the place.

7. May 31st will be the last day of the challenge, when the link up will take place. I will of course post several reminders to annoy you all remind you. 

All that being said, please consider participating in this awesome challenge. Not only could you win a GINORMOUS prize pack, but the ultimate prize will be hitting that goal. That goal you always might've had in the back of your mind but never had the push you needed to get it done. This is that push. 
 
 
 
 


Peace, love and red bikinis,

Kassie

  2. I follow you on Instagram (I'm katsweb09) and I kept wondering what Operation Red Bikini was! Thanks for the explanation! I am totally on board :) My goal is to fit into a pair of my "skinny girl jeans" and to also just feel comfortable in a tankini (mommy of twins here, probably never gonna wear a 'real' bikini)! Thanks for the inspiration!

  7. I want to have muscle tone by 5/31!

    ReplyDelete
  8. YES! I want to wear a bikini. I've only ever worn one two-piece that wasn't a tankini...and it wasn't pretty. I want to rock a belly-baring, ya-better-be-fit-and-trim two-piece this summer. I want it so bad!

    I do have one question about the contest portion of Operation Red Bikini...are these transformation stories going to be from start to end (I joined WW last November)? Or is it going to be a story of our transformation from December 18-May 31?

    Thanks so much for setting this up, ladies! I'm so excited to participate!

  12. I have a pair of pants that I am dying to wear....I am going to participate in this challenge but I have my own challenge going on too...it's called #getknockedup and if I reach my goal of getting knocked up, well then I won't be getting in those pants until AFTER I pop that baby out, but I will get there! and quite possibly, all the "work" that I am doing to accomplish this will get me closer to those pants. :)

    You go girl!!!!

  15. This is so awesome! I would love to join. My goal is to lose 10ish lbs and be in the size 6 shorts I bought and posted about on my blog (mcgfamily4.blogspot.com). U am also trying to find a bathing suit that is flattering to my body type, although I can do a bikini bc of stretchies from my babes!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I love Operation Red Bikini! My goal is to lose 25 pounds by May 31 and be able to look absolutely FAB in my own red bikini!

    ReplyDelete
  17. yes! I am in. I want to be a toned size 6 and rock a bikini with no hiding!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Ok, my goal is to rock a bikini as well. I bought one this past summer but felt like I could only wear it if I stayed laying down on my back... no sitting up!! lol.

    Also, I tried to get to your instagram page via your button and it wouldn't work?

    Lastly, you should linkup with me on Thursday :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. I love your idea of operation red bikini...count me in!! My goal: to have a toned tummy and fit into a size 6 by May 31st. Thanks for the inspiration! :)

    ReplyDelete
  20. I LOVE this idea! It's so great :). Now I just need to find a red bikini, or I could use just one of the other 10 I haven't used more than once or twice for years!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Love it! I bought a very cute summer dress (size 8) a while back as motivation.. I hope to be in it by next summer. Definitely up for the challenge!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Love this! My #operationredbikini is going to be in like 4 phases! Ill email you the deets but count me in! Xoxo

  23. Fabulous idea! My goal is to lose 30 pounds, which is half of my weight loss goal. I plan to lose the other 30 by October 2013. :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. Kassie - this is so much more exciting than I even imagined! Of course I AM IN! Get ready for me to start hashtagging all over this red bikini business :) My main goal is to run my entire half marathon with my sis on May 4th and feel great all summer long!

    You all rock for doing this! Love that we are all here to support each other!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I want in. I would love to wear a bikini next summer!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I am so excited to part of this. Thanks for thinking it up. My red bikini is a pair of beautiful size 10 jeans that I want to fit in by next summer. I will get a picture of them up on my blog (www.fourbuggers.blogspot.com) this week. And I will finally sign up for an instagram account, I know, I am WAY behind on this one, what can I say, I am not one of the cool kids. I am all over pinterest though, so I will send you the link when I get a board set up. =)

    ReplyDelete
  27. Yay! It hit me last night in the gym what I would like to do for this challenge- cute, colored shorts or skinny jeans! I was in awe of my roommate's cute green shorts last year (they looked good dressed up or down). I don't have the confidence to do the colored jean thang yet. They had some skinnies in my size at Target but I didn't even want to try them on. Right now I'm a (TIGHT) size 24/ (comfortable) size 26 and 22/24 on tops. I would love to have a cute outfit, no matter what size by the local Tiki Bar opening (around middle of April). There's my goal! Even if it's not the colored shorts for that event (since it might be cold), I will by the May deadline.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Yes! I'm in! I'm doing something similar, and posted a couple pics on my blog of my goal dress, and a pair of size 8 jeans I ordered for motivation. So I figured I'd get in on this challenge since it goes right along with my own. I'll be signing up for an Instagram account (finally!) thanks to this challenge! Woo-hoo!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Well phooey!! I thought I commented yesterday, but I don't see it! Anyway, I'm definitely in!!! I LOVE this!! I have a dress that I bought 2 years ago and have never been able to wear. It's 2 sizes away (10). My goal is to be in it... and oh by the way, it's spaghetti straps! So my arms need to be TONED! I also want to have to buy a new swimsuit...maybe not a bikini...but one never knows!!!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I am so doing this! My goal is to lose 30lbs before I turn 30 (which is August 17th), since your's is for May 31, my goal is to be able to wear a pair of shorts by May 31. I haven't worn shorts since my freshman year of college back in 2001-2002. This is such an awesome idea, and I love to have fellow bloggers all getting together and supporting each other in our goals! You are an inspiration! And BTW, I love the bikini you picked out, and I know you are going to rock it!

    ReplyDelete
  31. This seems like the perfect opportunity to hit my goal! I want in!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I want in on this challenge. I want to fit in my size 6 Gap capris I haven't been able to wear in at least 7 years and a bikini. Can I have two pieces? :)

  36. It took me a day to decide what my equivalent of a red bikini was going to be. I have finally decided to make my goal be to fit into a size 10 dress by summertime!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I'm in! I e-mailed you but have since set up a blog:www.notyourskinnybitch.blogspot

    I want to loose 3 pant sizes. Go from a comfy 22 to a comfy 16.

    Loving your blog and Leigh Ann's && Mama L... you guys are {SUCH} inspirations!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Yes! Absolutely love this! I'm a former collegiate athlete and I was a healthy size4/6 and I've somehow wandered into the land of dancing between a 8/10 and I'm so sick of feeling like my skin is stretched too tight! Count me in on making my way back to a healthy size4/6!

    Thanks for doing this!

    My red bikini is actually anything but a bikini.

    I have an amazing engagement ring/wedding band, that I haven't been able to wear since January 2012. I would like to be able to wear that again on a daily basis.

    I would like to not have a triple chin in pictures.

    I would like to be able to fit into my wedding dress again. My 10 year wedding anniversary is in July, and I would like to know that that shit still fits me.

    and last but not least, I would like to be able to wear shorts this summer!

    ReplyDelete
  63. I'm in...I'm also doing a link up with another blogger "weigh in wednesdays" your challenge will fit perfectly with mine. My goal is to get back into a bikini {not that i haven't worn one, but I shouldn't have been} post baby. I have been over 200 pounds for the last 4 years, I'm back in a 12 after 70 pounds lost this year, and by may 31 I would LOVE to be in an 8...I will be in an 8!! && my belly will be flat enough that my stretch marks from carrying spider monkey won't matter!

  67. I am absolutely in! My goal is to (ultimately) lose 20lbs. I think that's pretty doable by May. Another goal for this YEAR is to run one 5k race each month. I hate running but that seems to be making me even more determined to do this.

  72. My goal is bikini. Operation VS bikini that I ordered and never wore last year!!!

    ReplyDelete
  73. Is it too late to join? I love this Idea. My operation goal is to fit in a little black dress. Every woman should have a little black dress they feel sexy in but with me being over weight there is no way I going to feel sexy. So that's my goal.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Thinspirational! I just started Couch 2 5k's today and have decided I want to be a size 8(Aus)in my tops and a 9-10(Aus) in pants by 31 May, because who am I kidding I have an ass just like Beyonce! I also want to look fantastic in my Bridesmaids dress for my sisters wedding!
    Bring on May 31!

    ReplyDelete
  75. I want to be in, if it's not too late. My goal is just to be able to wear a pair of shorts and a tank top this summer without being so damn self conscious about it! So ready for a "comfortable" summer!! =) ... Awesome idea, ladies =)

  76. I'm in! I'm following the board on pinterest and started my own board too. My goal is to wear a single digit size, wear shorts this summer, and to feel comfortable in a swimsuit.

  77. Alright, I'm in! I'm going to be following on Instagram and Pinterest - Mommacantshutup - and I will post on my blog, too cause I'm awesome. I want to feel GOOD about myself. I want to get down to a size...12....or honestly, just feel good by May. No more butt dimples, please!

    ReplyDelete
  78. I've been following Leigh Anne's blog and reading about Operation Red Bikini, but today I decided to hop over and read yours too. I have been a little behind on blogs lately. I am now in search of my red bikini! I can't wait to get beach body ready this year. I loved the fringe top bikinis from last season and I hope to find one soon as my goal piece! Thanks for doing this challenge :)

    ReplyDelete
  79. I want to in the 160's by May - I really want to be 150 something but in 5 months I think I can get to at least 169 and I want to be in a single digit pant size!

  80. I'm a little late...but would still like to join in on the challenge! My #operationredbikini is to get under 200 lbs (meaning I have at LEAST 13 lbs to get there)...this is my first MINI goal...I haven't seen under that # in YEARS!!!

    ReplyDelete
  81. I'm a little late too, but I want to join ORB!! By May I want to realistically be in a size 10 jean. Please keep posting your struggles and triumphs! It totally motivates me and reminds me of my own goals!

    ReplyDelete
  82. Okay, I'm finally getting my BUTT INTO GEAR and am posting on here to join in!!!! You already know I want to be a part of this, I'm just behind on social media :) But here I am! And I AM IN! I want to be in a size 6 by the end of May. I want to be comfortable in a bikini. I want to be proud of my body. And I am going to do it! I'm not going to put a pound number out there, because I know the number on the scale is just a number. I want to fit into a size 6, for sure! I LOVE this idea!!!

    ReplyDelete
  83. Joining in a little late. I couldn't figure out what was required to participate. Haha I can be a little slow. I just would like to tone up a bit, and have less bat wings by May 31st. I wouldn't hate being 30 pounds Lighter either;) thanks for doing this. Such a great idea.

    ReplyDelete
  84. I'm a little late but I'm in. I want to lose 30lbs by May 31st.

Right now, I'm at 204 pounds. My goal by May 31st is to be at 180 pounds! If I make it to 180, that will be a total of 37 pounds lost this year, and 47 total! Operation Red Bikini is ON!

  99. I want to be able the shorts I got for my 15th birthday. They're in practically new condition, because I was too self-conscious to wear them as a teenager. I'm going to be in them by my 25th birthday on May 21 :)

  103. I just found this through Kyra at Nine Months... I know I'm way late, but I'm so in!!! I'm a new blogger, busy mom/stepmom of 5, & my youngest is 17 months, so I'm still trying to get back to "myself". My goal is to get back into the dress I wore to my rehearsal dinner & my honeymoon bikini from 3 years ago. I'm training to run a 5K for the first time ever, hoping the running will change things up and speed things along :) So glad I found this, I'm so much more motivated already!
