Tonight while I was waiting for our son to finish his dinner - an hour people argh - I thought I would start on my exercise routine. While I was doing my arms and abs he asked, " Mom why do you workout?"
I told him it was so we are healthy and fit so we can live a long life. BUT really I workout for more then that.
I workout to be thin (being fat for most of my life this is important to me)
I workout to be able to walk in any store and try and buy what I want
I workout so on weekends like this one I can have one S'moreo and be okay with that. HOLY MOLY amazing stuff on pinterest. Two oreos, marshmallow and a reese's peanut butter cup.
Last week when I weighed in I am only 3lbs away from my goal but I have gained so much more then just a weight loss goal. I have found fun in exercising, I have found it beyond satisfying to be healthy and fit and shit getting rid of my size 6 pants isn't bad either.
Now I am not perfect by any means - I still feel that my arms jiggle, my tummy is not flat nor tight and my butt goes for miles BUT I am getting better and that is what it is all about.
Here are a few pictures that you might have already seen on instagram (momfittingitallin) but I want you to see them anyway.
We are really trying to live by the WORK HARD PLAY HARDER motto of life...
