Bye, Bye Miss American Thighs

Today marked day 1 of Project Lose-The-Baby-Weight-And-Pre-Baby-Weight-And-Never-Be- Chunkified-Again Challenge. I was hoping to start last week but since it was Mastitis Monday, I had to rearrange my plans. Now that things are flowing normally, I'm all about losing these rolls once and for all.

I'm happy to say that I made it through my workout as planned and even managed to squeeze in a bunch of crunches on the ball and some serious stretching time. Thanks Austin for snoozing and letting me get er' done. I have a long ways to go but in the words of the amazing Marilyn, I can do hard things.

The workout felt great, although it was weird having all these parts in all different places than before, but I trudged along and made it through. It's amazing what 10+ months of absolutely no ab training will do to your mid-section. It sort of looks like the jowls of a dog, a really fat and ugly dog, but my goal is to fix that right up. Surgically, if necessary.

In the meantime, please don't offer me any goodies. No ice cream or pie, pizza or pasta. And if you see me with anything from Sonic other than a diet cherry limeade, please smack me across the face. I give you full permission.

I can't wait to feel good in my own skin again!

You go, go, go!!! Nothing tastes as good as thin feels. At least that's what I've heard... :) I'm also on my own journey to experience that myself!

Oh and I LOVE (with all my heart) this Sting song (Fragile) that is playing.
