Finally. Finally the sun is shining and we're having spring-like weather. I can hardly stand it! This week I've already been out walking with the kids, playing soccer with them and hitting up the park (more outdoor activity than the last 3 months combined.) How was I supposed to play soccer when my backyard was covered in snow until recently?
I'm turning over a new leaf. Fitness Mama is on the scene. More regular gym visits, fresh veggies, bbq'd fish and chicken, working out outside (walking and possibly even, gasp, running.)
12 lbs to lose in 2 months. That's the goal kids.
I've got 2 baptisms, 2 weddings and 2 showers to attend in the very near future and it's time to shed my winter fatness.
It. is. ON.
What's my motivation? Actually I"ll take it anywhere I can get it. It seems like everyone in Hollywood is shrinking their asses and getting skinny. First there was the wave of pregnancies and now there's the weight loss epidemic. What's in the water down there?
Mama's next y'all.
Jennifer Hudson at the Mary J.Blige Honors Awards. Girl is just getting better and better. I believe I've found my fitness role model...
"American Idol" season 6 winner Jordin Sparks is skinny now too! She's obviously feeling pretty great about herself since she tweeted this pic. Bold move Jordin.
Hollywood funny-man Seth Rogan slimmed down for his role in the "Green Hornet"
Chubster/joker Jonah Hill has lost 30 lbs and is still losing for his roll in "21 Jump Street"
Sara Rue recently lost weight on the popular diet plan Jenny Craig. How cute is she?
Former Cosby kid and That's So Raven star, 25 year old Raven Symone has also jumped on the diet bandwagon and is looking ay-mazing.
Even the perpetual yo-yo dieter, Kirstie Alley is looking pretty darn good after losing 60 lbs, partly through her time spent on Dancing with the Stars. She admits she has another 30 to go but she's getting there.
Lord knows if 60 year old Kirstie Alley can do it then so can Mama. I'm not looking to drop 6 sizes here, just the unwelcome pounds I've gained through this ungodly long winter.
I'm always a little shocked at how hard losing the last "10 pounds" really is. Like ridiculously challenging?
I've lost mountains of weight after my babies but I'm always stalled/stumped at around 10-15 lbs before my "goal" weight. Why why whyyy?
Enough complaints. It's go time.
