(one of hoho's preferred tv viewing positions).
many of you have been asking about how i am doing with the
30 day shred.
and i'm happy to report that i finished my 30 days on wednesday!!
30 (nearly) consecutive days of exercise is my LIFETIME best.
i really think you can add up ALL of the other days of my life that i have exercised and not get to 15 whole days. i'm pretty proud of myself.
i won't be showing you another after photo...because it would look pretty much the same as the last one i showed at 15 days...except my abs are much more noticeable and if you squint a little bit you can see a six pack. showing a photo here of my midsection is just a bit too far past my modesty level. :)
but i will tell you that before this 30 days i would NEVER, ever consider wearing a bikini of any sort and now if i really wanted to i would. but again...i have found that wearing a bikini these days is just a bit too far past my level of modesty.
i can feel a huge difference when i put my hands on my hips and waist...they are much slimmer and trim. i have more energy...i FEEL stronger...and leaner and overall feel like my body likes me a little better. i am pretty pleased with seeing all my hard work pay off.
today i've started jillian micheal's yoga meltdown...totally more booty kicking than i thought and from here on out i think we will be doing a mix of this new dvd and the shred.
some things i am MOST proud of though...besides the physical change and having lowered the chances of someone saying that i look great "for having two kids"...are two things...
1-the example i am being to my boys. i want my boys to be HEALTHY and ACTIVE. and that won't happen magically. they will need parents who are HEALTHY and ACTIVE. at the end of every single workout moses or hoho will say "good job mom!". and that means the world to me.
2- i am SO proud of how many of you have followed my example. i am totally blown away by the number of emails or comments or facebook statuses i have seen that have said "because of you, i am doing this". that makes me so happy for YOU making a good change in your life. it feels good to encourage people in a healthy direction and i have really lost track of the number. keep it up and keep me posted! :)
so tell me...how are YOU doing?
