Being Healthy... or Trying To

Today started my 30 day challenge for myself. After having a child, as many of you know, a woman's body is just not the same. So, instead of not liking myself or complaining that this shirt or those shorts don't fit right anymore, I've decided to do something about it! 
My good friend, Kayla Poucher, let me borrow a work out DVD. Let me tell you, I was not ready to sweat that much! It felt so great to get back into the groove of things. Emma will only get heavier which means I need to get stronger. 
My challenge for myself: to do at least 20-30 minutes of activity a day. If it's not the work out DVD, a walk will do. I know it's easier said than done, but I want my child, eventually down the line children, to know that health is important. 
Obviously, working out doesn't do it all... Eating healthy needs to be in the mix! My new thing is throwing some vanilla yogurt, some frozen blueberries, frozen raspberries, and a banana in our Magic Bullet and walla! 
Emma seems to love it too!

  1. yay! i feel the same way! but with two, its soo much harder to find the time to really get a good work out in. if you are home, one is up and you can't do it. but then it takes twice as long if you drive somewhere, plus money! i'm going to try and get up an hour before they wake up and walk that entire time! i good time with God and i get to be active. i'm going to TRY!! lol, sleep is hard to come by these days.

    good luck! have fun though too! i love working out! the motivation though is hard.
