OK guys it has been a few years, yes you heard me correctly since I have posted.
Lets just say that a lot has happened in that time. I had 2 babies and countless things in my life are different now.
I have the most amazing son and daughter now. I am so grateful for my family, but I have fallen back into old habits.
I have not been that great at my eating and workouts that I used to do regularly have been relapsed with all sorts of mommy things.
I am not saying that mothers don't work out but I have found that its 100x more difficult with all these little babes around demanding my attention.
So I have like so many times before started to try and get my post baby body back.
I have tried my workouts and did pretty good for a few weeks and then I fall off the wagon. I have done this more times than I can count in the 3+ years it has been since I have posted.
This time I am putting it out to the universe that I am going to make a change.
I am going to start posting about the things that I am doing to try to give myself some accountability to the universe that this time it will be different.
These are the things that I am going to do...
1. Count my calories: This is circuital since bodies are made in the kitchen. I will need to have an accurate account of what I put in my body so I know how many calories to burn to lose weight.
2. Work out at least 5x a week with weights and cardio: This is important because you have to move to change your body. I have found that I need at least 3 days of weight lifting to be he best me I can be. I love do do both and the combo is great for me. I am going to do at home workouts mixed with so random walking with the kiddos. Mainly I will do programs called Turbo Kick, Chalean Extreme and Piyo for my flexibility.
3. Remember that Rome was not built in a day: This is important! It will take some time to get close to where I want to be and I and everyone need to have realistic expectations. Most people that loose weight and do it the healthy long lasting way get there slowly. It takes time to see results so I am going to try to pay attention to the way that my body feels first. If I am feeling stronger but still have a muffin top thats ok, baby steps.
I will check back in soon with a new post I hope this time I can get into the groove and it works.
See you soon!
