Exercises for Busy Parents

Exercise for Busy Parents

I made the mistake of stepping on the scale the other day… Ok. So it wasn’t a mistake, it was quite deliberate.

Lately, I have been feeling as though I am walking around dragging a spare tire around my waist… and kind of look like it too! The other day something inside me just “snapped”, maybe it was the huge pizza I had just finished eating… but whatever it was, I NEEDED to know how much I weighed!

I scurried down the hall to the scale, held my breath and stepped on.

I have gained, quite a bit of weight.

I am not one to be too overly concerned with how I “look” … I usually walk around in sweats with no make up on with my hair in a messy bun… However, I have grown quite concerned about the way I FEEL lately! And like I said earlier. I feel as though I am dragging around some extra weight and that is making me feel unhealthy! Now, I may not always be too concerned about how I look to others…but let’s be 100% honest here… I would kind of like to not only feel healthy but also feel sexy! And lately I do not feel like either one. 

So, I took some pictures:

and set some goals….

Goal: 140lbs by June 11th 2014

and now I am trying my absolute best to attain them.

I will be checking back often to keep myself accountable. I will be posting exercises and my tricks to achieve success. I will also post monthly progress pictures!

Do you have any fitness/weight loss goals?

    jen. I Too have a loosing weight goal . So, starting this Monday I am following the 7 day before surgery diet. Which is guaranteed to loose 7 pounds . In that week. But it is just a start. After that you should make sure to avoid carbs and sweets. And it works . I lost 25 pounds sometime ago. And it lasted many years. So, go for it . You’ll definitely feel better. And sexier. Love. cec. A long time ago Mommy ninja.
