It may not seem like it for many people, but spring/summer is fast approaching. As I look outside my kitchen window at my snow-covered vehicle, all I can think of is how flabby I'm going to look in a bathing suit this summer. Time to get my butt in gear!
Starting 2 days ago, I made the commitment to start a workout regime again. Last year, I had lost 20 lbs with diet and exercise. Mind you after having my daughter not even a year before that I had put on more weight after having her. It was all the breastfeeding and sitting on my hiney eating snacks and being immobile.
Jumping back into the saddle is never easy, so far this year I've tried twice. Working out maybe a week steady and then completely abandoning all things fitness. But, I figured if I have someone or something to report back to then I'll be more likely to succeed.
So, here's the dillio. Every Thursday I'm going to weigh in, and blog about my week thusfar. That way I'll have incentive to stay on track with my workouts. This week I've completed two 30 minute sessions on my elliptical and burned 500 calories each time. I plan on having one or two days with no cardio and work on just weight training. That way I'll have a rest from the elliptical which I can get so sick of.
As of Thursday, March 10th I weighed in at 160 lbs on the button
I'm hoping to lose 5-10 lbs max, just enough so my butt doesn't jiggle so much when I walk...LOL
Here's 2 of the swimsuits I've had my eye on, I'm 6'1 and have a long torso so I've also wanted to be able to wear a one-piece (especially after 2 pregnancies and those magical little things called stretch marks). These 2 are available in 'long torso' so I'm hoping that they will fit me.
