I will hopefully be sleeping really well tonight, as I just did my first day of Jillian Michaels' 30 Day Shred. I currently feel like I am made out of jelly. I even had Blue bring the babies down from their nap because I didn't trust my legs on the stairs.
time I really worked out was probably April 2011 when we found out we
were having twins and I realized I'd need to keep all my calories for
them (perhaps you remember me lamenting having
to eat so much to even gain weight?). So you can imagine how pathetic
my workout was, and how in need of more workouts I am.
signed up for Weight Watchers, as well, something else I stopped last
April. I want to lose the last 15 pounds of baby weight, plus the 20 or
so I was trying to lose when I got pregnant. Because not only do I feel
like jelly, I kind of have that St Nick "and [her] stomach shook like a
bowlful of jelly" thing going on too. I'm not feeling badly about that,
because, hey, I did just have twins 10 weeks ago and have done nothing
to try to lose weight since, because who wants to start a diet during
the holidays? It's time though.
I'm hoping that by blogging
about it, I might actually follow through and be in bathing suit shape
by May. I'm doing a challenge with a fellow mom to work out 5 days a
week. I can proudly say:
Week 1: 1/5 workouts
Pounds to Go: 35 (if you think I'm putting my weight up here, you are crazy. I'll track pounds to lose instead)
Hmmm... I should have Blue take a "belly shot" weekly to show my progress. Like my baby bump, but in reverse! For now, a picture from Christmas, which is what made me realize it really is time to stop being lazy, and to stop putting extra butter on my popcorn:
Who is that? Into what belly roll is that poor second sheep disappearing? I must rescue him! So, without further ado, let Project Sheep Rescue begin!
