Shape Up!

I am a little late in the game considering that summer is almost over. But I seriously thought that maybe, just maybe, I could get away without having to work out. After looking at some pictures taken this summer and also laying out at the pool with moms with rockin' bodies I have come to the tough conclusion that I was wrong. Wow I was so wrong! My body definitely needs some toning up and it wouldn't hurt to lose a little bit of weight.

Since getting married over 2 years ago both Chris and I have gotten quiet comfortable. We are not bad eaters and consciously eat moderately healthy, however, we have definitely slacked off in the workout department! I talk more than I do and even though awhile back I said I was going to start the 30 Day Shred I started it but only completed 4 days. Pathetic I know! So starting tomorrow both Chris and I are going to start the 30 Day Shred together! What better way to get motivated and succeed than to work out with the one you love?! And I am going to be extremely brave and post before, during and after pictures! It's a little scary even thinking about it but it needs to be done to help motivate me. Over the years I have put on some weight and for me it all goes to my stomach, hips and the butt! Let's face it I am not 18 and far from it. And I have gotten really great at hiding it with loose shirts and empire waist clothes but it can only hide so much. Did I tell you that someone at work asked me if I was pregnant and I quote her "because you have gained some weight the past few weeks." Ugh! Rude!!! No lady I just can't suck in forever!

Anyways...I am not only doing this to tone and lose some weight but to get healthy for myself and just feel good! I really miss my Bikram Yoga but we are trying to save and it just doesn't fit into the budget. Plus I want to get my body baby ready and they say if you are in shape before baby, then its easier to lose the weight afterwards.

So ladies this is it! I am going to stop talking and actually do it! I am going to get my body in shape! I want to be able to run and not collapse at the end of the street. I am going to do it! Wish me luck cause I have a feeling I am going to need it, lol!
