My main spot that drives me crazy?? My abs. (or what used to be my abs....) Two 10 pound children wrecked havoc on them, and I have never been the same. Any and all weight I gain goes straight there. I HATE when I get the "Omgosh you're pregnant!! I didn't know! When are you due?" (Yes, it has happened. Multiple times.) I mostly feel bad for the person who asked, but it does sting a little too. I try to hide it, but it's hard. Lately Spanx have been my go-to fix, but who wants to wear spanx when it is 100 degrees outside, am I right? :)
This blog isn't all depressing, I promise.
I also want to update you on how Jullian Michaels and I are getting along.
I yell at her a lot.
But I am still doing it! Today marks 3 weeks I have been doing the 30 day shred. I have missed a few days here and there.... sometimes a Mom's day is just to busy to give up even 20 minutes. Field trip day to the zoo? Yard sale day? It's ok. I'm not beating myself up about it.
I am still on level 1.
I'm not going to lie to you either. It's hard work. That is the difference I am finding this time around. If you want to make a change, you have to be dedicated. I'm not going to wish myself healthy. I have to do something!
So, I know you are still reading because you want to know my results....right? I have lost 8 pounds. I have lost two inches off of my waist. (WOO-HOO!!!!) I have lost 1 inch off my thighs, 1 inch off of my bust, and nada off of my hips. (Ahem, see "Mama's hips" above.) The best thing is, I am seeing my body change. I'm not just losing weight, I am toning too at the same time. I can feel and see it. This will last a lot longer and is so much healthier than if I had starved myself these last 3 weeks.
Till next time friends!
