I did a little victory dance the other night, as I was unpacking boxes of my clothes. I found my knicker over-alls from California at the bottom of a pile. I almost stuck them in the "later" section of the "don't fits" pile. But, I thought to myself for a moment, why not try them on for kicks? So, I did. They were LOOSE! I haven't been able to wear these since right before I found out that I was pregnant! It was like Christmas for me! Just in the last 3 weeks, I've lost about an inch through my hips! Good Lordy, I can't believe it.
I've had several girls ask me what my secret is and I think, "secret?" It's been a year since I had Káel and it has taken that long for all that extra inches to slowly go away. Everyone's body is different so, what might work for some, might not work for others. I'm working on a post this week of the things that have worked for me and I'm looking forward to sharing it. With fitness and weight loss, I'm of the mindset of what works longterm. Sure, I can do a 3 week, kick butt work out program or diet and it might tone my booty down. But, all that toning and work can be undone over another few months, if you're not consistent. The reality for me is this, will I spend an hour a day sweating like a guy and doing squats until my muscles are on fire? Probably not, even though I might want too. (I actually have a slight obsession with working out when I get in the groove of it.) I'll be honest, especially with all the transition going on in our lives these past few months, I won't do it. Having realistic goals that won't make you feel depressed, if you don't meet your quota of miles, is how I try to make my goal sticker chart. That way I won't just give up and end up on the couch with a quart of Ben and Jerry's, which I've been known to do. ;)
Anyways, I look forward to showing you my list that has evolved this past year. Maybe it will inspire you, or maybe it will make you laugh. Probably both.
Have a great day!
