I rarely talk about my current weight loss/fitness mission that I’m on…I think I’ve irrationally convinced myself that if I do all the hard work over the last 4 1/2 months will vanish into thin air…
I made a vision board this past October and one of the images was that of a back-to-pre-pregnancy-weight mommy walking down the street with two kids in hand….
So that was my goal….to be a yummy mummy…as shallow as that sounds.
Now I know my weight loss may have very little to do with that image that I so carefully secured to my board and has likely to do more with the 90 minutes a week that my trainer kills me doing lunges, squats, dead lifts and kettle bell throws….but I’d like to think that one picture was my motivational secret weapon…
I never really lost the weight after my first child and I rationalized that by saying ‘why bother if I’m just going to get knocked up again a second time’….
But after the birth of my daughter I had run out of excuses seeing that the baby factory was officially closed for business.
So I found my trainer, modified my eating and became best friends with protein powder, blueberries and almonds…
So at the 4 1/2 month mark….I’m:
Down 20 pounds…[130 lbs]
Lost almost 10% body fat
Gone from a size 10-11 to a size 6…..
Lost 2 inches off my chest….
2 inches off my arms….
And lost 3 inches off my thighs….
Not bad for a girl who loathes working out….
And yes I still sneak in chocolate every now and then….I mean I haven’t completely lost my mind!
Did I mention that my trainer is a young man of a mere 2o years???
Yeah that helps too.
