The 58-years-old Connecticut gym owner and mother of two adult daughters now wants her place among modeling elite by becoming the oldest woman to appear in Sports Illustrated’s storied swimsuit issue.
“Whether I’m chosen or not, I’m doing this as another way to share who I am and encourage others along the way that it’s not too late to try something new,” Harrison-Bauer told the newspaper. “I’m 58, and I’ve never felt so confident in myself.”
A determined Harrison-Bauer who runs Jodifit, a boutique fitness studio in Branford took that self-assured approach earlier this week to Miami, where she’ll attend a casting call at the W South Beach hotel Friday in hopes of outshining dozens of other models, many of whom will be decades younger than herself.
“I saw there were no specific age categories,” she told the newspaper. “That was my loophole to go for it.”
The two-time World Fitness America and World Fitness Universe champion credits 10 hours a week of resistance training, weightlifting and cardio for her toned figure as she approaches her 60s. Taking a page from her workout philosophy, Harrison-Bauer wants women to “break out of the box society loves to put us in,” she said.
Supermodel Paulina Porizkova turned heads in the 2018 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue when she appeared inside at age 54 the oldest to date. Tyra Banks the first African American to grace the special edition’s cover in 1996 became its oldest cover girl at age 45 in May. (Fri 12) Views: 240

Amanda Seyfried called out an Instagram influencer for blocking her and a friend, and it turns out she was referring to Arielle Noa Charnas, who recently posted a bikini photo celebrating her body after having two kids that some found "tone deaf."
On Tuesday, Seyfried posted a screenshot of a comment that her friend, who she chose to keep anonymous, left under an unidentified influencer's photo.
Though Seyfried did not specifically name her friend or the influencer, writer Sophie Flack identified herself as the commenter in an Instagram story, which was captured in screenshots shared by the Daily Mail. Her comment under Charnas' photo matches the one Seyfried posted, and she posted a screenshot to show that Charnas had blocked her.
"If you don't acknowledge how your wealth made your workouts-body possible, you're just perpetuating the patriarchal notion that mothers should 'bounce back' after childbirth," Seyfried's friend wrote, according to the screenshotted comment. "Why not use your platform to encourage more women to be ambitious business women, or say, run for office, or maybe, sheesh I don't know, do something to help the kids literally dying in cages?"
Seyfried wrote in the caption of her post that the 'semi-influencer' had blocked both her and her friend.
She went on to say that "there are gray areas everywhere," and asked the "semi-influencer" to think twice about what she posts on Instagram.
Charnas seemed to take notice of Seyfried's message.
"Why am I being bullied for posting myself in a bathing suit?" Charnas wrote. "I should be punished because I'm working hard to be fit after giving birth to two kids? I'm not responsible for making people feel good about themselves." (Fri 12) Views: 131

Stopping by the Us Weekly studios recently, the longest-running full-time Real Housewife who has never left the series dished to Us’ Brody Brown on the diet and fitness secrets that keep her looking ageless.
The Real Housewives of New York City star, 62, revealed that first and foremost, she works out hard. “I’m doing a lot of combinations. So I’m doing Exhale, which is all about Core Fusion,” she said of the gym and wellness spa’s signature class. “I do free weights. I do core training, I do tennis and I run intermittently. I run for a mile on a treadmill. So it’s working.”
The reality star has taken to posting bikini photos of herself looking incredibly fit on Instagram.
But as other Housewives stars know, abs are made in the kitchen and the Bravo personality shared a diet tip that has Us feeling alternately jealous and amazed. “I’m not drinking so much wine anymore,” she noted of the caloric alcoholic beverage. “I’m drinking vodka.”
Lest you worry she gave up vino, she clarified. “I love my wine. Don’t get me wrong, I still drink the wine but I start off with the vodka,” she shared. She’ll make an exception for good wine, though. “Unless I was going to order a really good bottle of wine, I’m not going to get that wine by the glass for 15, 20 bucks,” she said. “Unless you get the good bottle of wine, I’m not wasting my calories on that.”
And I don’t eat dessert,” she added.
Singer has a few other gems up her sleeve when it comes to skincare. “I always use sunblock,” she said, “drink lots of water and I get, like, 10 hours of sleep a night.” (Fri 12) Views: 101

When the weather begins to warm up, plenty of women dread what inevitably comes next: An onslaught of advertisements and social media posts imploring them to get their "bikini bodies" ready for summer.
Rather than motivational, these messages can be discouraging at best. In fact, a 2012 study from Flinders University in Australia found that women reported more feelings of anxiety and depression when they had to picture themselves wearing a swimsuit. They didn't feel the same way when they imagined themselves wearing jeans.
Although unrealistic societal expectations about bodies play a role in these negative emotions, individuals can boost their confidence without changing their bodies at all.
1- Wear what makes you feel good. Tt doesn't matter if it's completely covered up, a cute sundress or a thong bikini," Body Positive Fitness Alliance-affiliated coach Kimberly Weiss told US News & World Report. "If you feel good, you will look good."
2- Listen and dance along to an upbeat tune. Music has the power to make us cry or transport us back to a specific memory in time. It also has the power to make you feel confidence you may otherwise have not.
3- Sign up for your favorite exercise class. A single sweat session isn't going to transform your body, but it does have the power to make you feel great about all the things your body can physically do, like run, lift weight, or hold a pose like down dog.
4- Think about all the things you'd miss out on without your trusty bikini in tow. Model and influencer Iskra Lawrence seems to have taken this lesson to heart. She told "Who What Wear" that her decision to rock a bikini came from "not letting my body hold me back from enjoying myself and living life to its fullestModel and influencer Iskra Lawrence seems to have taken this lesson to heart. She told "Who What Wear" that her decision to rock a bikini came from "not letting my body hold me back from enjoying myself and living life to its fullest especially at the beach which is one of my favorite places to have fun and relax." which is one of my favorite places to have fun and relax."
5- Surround yourself with supportive loved ones. "Go to the pool or beach with people you like not people who make you feel bad about your body," Weiss told US News & World Report.
6- Treat yourself before stepping out. Little acts like these are considered self-care and are ways of saying "I love you" to yourself.
7- Say "screw it," and go live your life. When that happens, the best thing you can do is acknowledge your insecurities, remind yourself they don't define you, say "screw it," and put the bathing suit on anyway. (Wed 17) Views: 93

A smooth, itchless bikini line that looks all but Photoshopped is actually easier to get than you think. No matter the texture of your hair, removing it whether you wax, thread, or even laser doesn’t have to lead to bumps, redness, itchiness, or ingrowns.
1- SOOTHE YOUR SKIN Beyond soothing irritated skin, it helps prevent shaving bumps, as well as soften regrowth. Smooth it on immediately after waxing or shaving or before bed so it can work go to work while you sleep. It’s just as brilliant for underarms, legs, happy trails, even the face it’s truly life-changing if hair removal ever bothers your skin at all.
2- MOISTURIZE SKIN AND HAIR Moisturizing skin, whether it’s your face, body, or bikini line, leaves it plump, healthy, and less prone to irritation. Conditioning the bikini area with a hydrating oil can make a huge difference in terms of eliminating bumps and ingrowns. Smooth it onto your pubic hair and skin a few times a week. Because the oil has a softening effect, it makes waxing a lot less painful just use it the night before.
3- EXFOLIATE REGULARLY Regularly exfoliating your face ensures it’s healthy and glowy and keeps your pores clear and unclogged. The same principle applies to the bikini area. Using a gentle scrub to sweep away dead skin cells lessens the chance of ingrowns.
Pro tip: If you’re shaving, a sharp blade makes a world of difference. The friction of going over the area multiple times inevitably leads to irritation, as does the pressure you need to exert when you use a dull blade. Shaving in the direction of the hair growth can also help minimize ingrowns. (Tue 16) Views: 62
