In December I was horrified at photos of myself from the holidays. I had a tiny human in August, but it's about time that I start to get back in shape. Perfect timing, I receive the email from Shea @ mylifelist.org announcing the 2012 21 day challenge. I needed this. So, my challenge to go down 1 pant size. Not only did I accomplish this, I am down TWO sizes with the help of a great diet, positive outlook, On Demand workouts from home and definitely being held accountable by others on mylifelist. I am so happy, but we are not done yet. I aim to go down 2 more sizes before my daughter turns 1. It' s completely out of my character to post terrible pictures of myself, but it's necessary. I have posted before and after pictures. Wow. Here's to a great start to 2012! :)
Why were you inspired to do this?
On September 3rd, 2010 I married the love of my life. In order to prep for the wedding, I did amazing work outs and edited my diet. I lost 20 lbs and felt amazing! The 1st picture on this slide show is on our honeymoon! On August 21, 2011, Penelope Julieta was born and I therefore in the mean time gained weight because of my pregnancy. At the end of this 21 day challenge, penelope will be 5 months and 10 days old. It's about time I begin lose that extra baby weight! At the moment, I have 1 pair of jeans that fit. And they are my "fat" jeans. So, at the end of this challenge, I want to fit in to at LEAST 1 pair of jeans that last me all day without having to unbutton or be uncomfortable. Here we go! I started today with a 20 minute cardio work out and altered my diet to healthy and delicious.
What were 3 things you did to make this happen?
Excersize, every day when Penelope sleeps, start small, go big, be strong. Start Zumba on Monday nights and mall walking in the mornings.
Eat smaller portions, healther choices!
Turn off the TV!
How did you feel once you had accomplished this?
myself. I have to be active when I am at home. Cable offers FREE workout videos. I just have to do it!
