Mama Got Back

Let's work it out.  By it I mean my flabby ass.  I have tried so many different things to get back into my pre-baby shape and have had a bit of success every once in awhile only to have another child.  I know that sounds mean like I blame my children for roundness.  I do.  Just kidding (partly).  I know I am to blame and really have become sedentary in my life.  I eat whatever I want. I don't work out.  Well at least until lately.

This semester I am taking a circuit fitness training class at the college.  You are on your own there but have to sign in so you get credit.  27 hours of working out is an A, 26 a B and so on.  Since I want an A to keep my GPA up I will have to go.  No excuses.  I even have a fellow nursing student who also takes this class.  She is fit and has the tight little tummy to show for it.

Yesterday we went to the gym to work out and I had her show me some of the things to do to whittle my tummy down.  Ouch!!!!  My  tummy did not like it.  I, however, am loving it.  I feel more energetic than I did a few weeks ago.  I sleep better (most nights) and I am not dragging during the day.  I walked on the treadmill, worked my arms, legs and abs.  I feel great if not a bit sore. 

Since I am working out I am not eating all the crap that I used to.  I still eat some of it just not all.  I am making healthier choices. I've cut down on the sweet tea and soda and am drinking more water.  I have even lost a few pounds since we started.  So needless to say, I am pumped up.  I really want to stick with it and turn my health and figure around.  Instead of round I will take hourglass.  Hopefully, come summer, my flabby ass will no longer be flabby but instead FABULOUS!

I will keep you posted on how its going and if you have any advice for me I would surely appreciate it.


  1. You are a better woman than me, I haven't quite built the confidence to sign up for the gym, but I'm thinking it's time, I do pretty good at home, but it's really easy to make the excuse not to! I'm in the battle with you, and I got your back sister!!!!

  2. I've been putting off working out for a while, but since I look like a stuffed sausage when I put on my jeans, I think it's time I started doing something. Most women would love to have my figure, but this is not the figure that I'm used to. I went from a size nine to a size fourteen in one year. Must have had something to do with falling in love and him cooking me breakfast, lunch and dinner, everyday. Can't skip any meals around this joint, thanks to him. Anywho, spring and summer are on the way,I've got to get it crankin. You've inspired me.
