Because if I’m not willing to put it all out there, how can I ask you to do the same?
It’s been 2 years since I first started with Beachbody. I loved it so much I signed on a a couch within the first month. Over those 2 years my weight and motivation has gone up and down and up and down. Oh, and I had a baby a year ago. Talk about throwing a wrench into the plans
So, here I am starting over, again….. This time I’m at the heaviest I’ve been outside of being 8 months pregnant. 179.2lbs!!!!! Ugh!!! I was around 150lbs when I meet my husband 7 years ago. That’s where I want to get back to. Or at least back to not looking like I’m still pregnant. Seriously, if I dropped 20lbs I’d be beyond happy right now. I’ve been hovering up and down 5 lbs since January. So, it’s time to really knuckle down and get my focus back.
As you can see, I carry the vast majority of my weight in my belly. River calls it my “saggy mama belly”. Gee, thanks kid!!!! I like to remind him that’s he’s the one that caused said saggy belly since he’s the oldest kid.
I had a hard time trying to figure out what program I was going to get started with. I wanted to jump back in with CIZE, since I dropped a cool 20lbs with it 2 years ago when I started. But most of the routines are over 40 mins long. And I know I’ll be rushing around in the morning, because I won’t get up early enough to squeeze it all in. As it is, it takes me 3 hours to get up, workout and get everyone out the door before heading into work.
So, I opted to start Country Heat this morning. Each workout comes in right around the 30 min mark. It’s low impact, cardio based, and FUN!!!!! I danced off 424 cal this morning in just 32 mins.
So, day 1 is in the books….or tracked in an app or 2 or 3. I sometimes even use My Fitness Pal to track my calories for the day. I’ll get into more about that in another post.
August is rapidly approaching, and what that come Back to School!!! And that means all new routines for the morning. I’ll be retired and a stay at home mom then as well. Yippie!!!!!
I’m starting up a new fitness group in Aug and another in Sept. Sign-ups start soon and will include my weekly meal plans, customized for you and your fitness goals for the first 3 people each month!!!! Click here to get started and I’ll see you on the flip side.
