Time to Kick Butt....My Butt

Well...I am on a mission...maybe it is the weather, maybe it is the mirrors at the clothing stores, maybe it is the big cool pool in the backyard that I embarrassed to use, maybe it is my poor self image but...

I am ready to get back in shape and lose the baby weight. I have been slowly trying in my half way effort that I do... but I am ready to do it all out..100% effort because I know I can do it - I know I can lose it and I know I can feel good again.

I go through these spurts a lot in my life...gain and lose, gain and lose. But I never thought it would be this hard to lose weight after the baby - I am dumb I know!

But here is my resolution to myself - I am going to lose 25 lbs. That is my overall goal. Here are my other goals:

-Lose 25 lbs by the end of summer - by September hopefully - for sure October - my baby's first birthday

-work out/walk with my son during the day and do my pilates and weight lifting at the beginning of his nap

-go running at night (I hate running!) but I am going to really try to go right after my son goes to sleep

-go on walks with my husband and son when my husband gets home from work

-eat healthier

I am going to do this! I have written it and I am going to make all of you hold me to it! I know I can do it because I love to stay active and feel good about myself! I just kept telling myself I would start trying more when I finally got more sleep at night and wasn't so tired...Well I am still tired but I am just going to set my mind to it and DO IT!!!

So here is to my weight loss! Please encourage me in any way you can and I will keep you up to date on my progress! I know there are many people and mothers out there like me so let's encourage each other along the way! WE CAN DO IT!!!

You can do it! I think all moms (except the celebrities who have a lot of help and need the skinny to survive) have those ups and downs. It's hard to lose weight. It's hard to be a mom. When you put the two together, it's just plain hard.

Good luck! I'm in the battle with you. Let's keep each other motivated!

Me and you both, sister.

I've had some luck with a low carb, low fat, high fiber, high water diet. Some luck..Still got the spare tire, though.

Congrats on being blogger of the week, came to say hi.

Oh, Marissa, you are such a beautiful mother and wife and sister and friend. I am behind you 100% and I know you can do it! You can always drive over to my Boot Camp this summer, ha, ha.
