That "thing" is the extra 5 lbs I still have from my pregnancy. I haven't really been doing anything to try to lose it mainly because my body has still been recovering, but I am feeling pretty good again so it is time! On top of that 5 lbs, I haven't forgot about the 15 lbs that I was not pleased with before I got pregnant. So I really want to work my butt off (literally) and lose some weight! I am ready!!!
The biggest challenge right now is that I can't cut out calories. I have been researching and trying to find a good way to do that, but there is no good way to do that while nursing. So, for the time being we leave the calories. But, that does not mean I can't adjust my eating habits. I just need to make better choices with the calories I do consume.
So tomorrow it starts! I have heard such awesome things about Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred so I picked up a copy for myself. It sounds like it will really kick me into gear and make me hurt, but I really need something to jump start me and get me headed in the right direction. I refuse to accept the fact that most woman gain a permanent 3-5 lbs with each pregnancy. So, here's my accountability. Nothing like putting it out there on the worldwide web for the whole world to see!
