The last 4 months have found me neglecting myself. That combined with stress eating and the typical winter/holiday extra pounds and I find myself saying ENOUGH!
I splurged on some new sneaks, I'm loading up my Ipod with booty shaking music and I'm on my way.
I got rid of my treadmill because of hip problems and though I would love to replace it with an elliptical, I can't until we buy our next house and I know I'll have the space. I actually have free gym access through Sweet Hubby's work but every time I go by the approved gym there are 10 buff 25 year old guys on the treadmills in the window. Yeah... No... Thanks, I'll stay home.
My workout will consist of running up and down our stairs, walking in the neighborhood, jump roping and dancing around my house. Yes, imagine me doing the twist and the mashed potato in my family room to various Christina Aguilera songs while hoping none of my neighbors has binoculars. Yep. You wish you could get that image out of your mind now, right?
And since I always like to bring you girls along and I know many of you like my to do lists, I'm going to keep a running count down of my weight progress. Keeping it real. I doubt I'll be bold enough to put my actual weight there, but I will tell you that my goal is to lose 15lbs initially and then I'll see how I feel from there. I found this very helpful site for tracking your food and health goals thanks to Shawn at Buttercup Farm who is on a mission to be Fit by 40.
If any of you want to recommend songs to keep my booty moving, I'd love to hear them. And if any of you want to share your weight woes, success stories or tips, I'm all ears. Well ears and hips, but whatever.
