In May 2011, I decided to get off my buns and get back into shape. When I stopped pumping for my kiddo, I gained a lovely 20ish pounds in about 2 months. I stopped pumping… but kept eating the same amount of calories. Whooops. Before that point I had NEVER worried about gaining weight. Having a kiddo changed EVERYthing. Now I need to watch what I eat, and apparently I have to work out. I bet it also has to do with the fact that I’m 30 and no longer a crazy 25-year-old.
Anywho. I did the 30 Day Shred, by Mizz Jillian Michaels for 60 days. That was the best I had felt in YEEears. Mentally and physically. Then, after about 4 months of working out non-stop… I quit. I was tired of working for it. Slowly my energy level went down and more recently I’ve been feeling super out of shape and bleh. Bloated and bleh. I’m TIRED of it. I want my energy back. I want to not look tired all of the time. That’s why Tuesday is my first day of getting back into shape, and continuing. Changing my lifestyle
On Monday I purchased 2 DVD’s. Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred and Yoga Meltdown. I plan on alternating between these two for 5 – 6 days a week. For now. Maybe I’ll move onto other things later? Who knows. This will be my start.
My goal is NOT to lose weight. It is to get in shape and feel awesome. Wish me luck
