For those ladies joining from High Heeled Mama, WELCOME!
For those that are new, Check. Her. Out!
Let me just start by saying that I am in no way, shape, or form at my preferred weight or fitness level. Things seem to have … gone down hill since I was pregnant with Zoie. She is nearly 15 months old now… I don’t have any excuses. I just need to start! I need to get into a routine that works for me.
I wish I was one of those girls that lost the baby weight within weeks of delivering, but sad to say I am not that Mama. I am the Mama that gained 70 pounds during her pregnancy and was another 5-7 heavier after giving birth. #thankyouswelling #ohthejoysofdrugs #ihadahugebaby
I wasn’t one of the beautiful pregnant ladies either. You know the ones… with the tiny frame and the cute baby bump. I was so swollen and huge throughout my whole pregnancy that people thought I was farther along than I actually was.
“No, Lady in the grocery store. I am not due today! I have another 3 months to go.”
So … here I am today. Not at my ideal weight but longing to be there.
What’s funny… I am wearing all the pants from when I was in my best shape before I got preggers… what sucks… is all the extra tummy that I can’t seem to get rid of. All my ‘extra’ seems to go straight to my tummy. #Ugh
I AM READY!!
I have PINNED 1000 ways to get back in shape. Now I just have to do it!

Here’s to getting in shape!
With the link up to High Heeled Mama, I have more accountability for what I am trying to accomplish.
The occasional lunges and crunches here and there aren’t cutting it anymore.
