HERE'S A LITTLE BACKGROUND INFORMATION ABOUT ME AND WHY I'M ON SP:

I'm 32 and I've been married to my best friend since 11/13/04- every day since then has been a gift. Our precious little boy joined our family on 04/27/09, and our darlinglittle girl joined our family on 05/18/12; I am constantly amazed by the blessings that God has granted me.

HERE'S A LITTLE BACKGROUND INFORMATION ABOUT ME AND WHY I'M ON SP:

I'm 32 and I've been married to my best friend since 11/13/04- every day since then has been a gift. Our precious little boy joined our family on 04/27/09, and our darlinglittle girl joined our family on 05/18/12; I am constantly amazed by the blessings that God has granted me.

The first time around, I wanted to lose weight for various reasons: I have a family history on both sides of diabetes, heart disease, high cholesterol, and high blood pressure, so being fit is important for me to be able to work against those hereditary issues; I wanted to feel good about how I looked; and my husband and I hoped to have a baby in the near future, so I thought that getting my body into shape before a baby would help with a smooth pregnancy and post-partum transition.

Well, I did it! I had just made my goal when we learned we were expecting a baby! I hadn't quite mastered maintenance, but I didn't mind... we were having a baby!

And then I came back for take two... losing the baby weight! I came back and lost most of that baby weight (and learned to love outdoor running with my new "fitness buddy" in his jogging stroller!). I was a fit mom!

And then I was pregnant AGAIN!

So here I am for take three... losing the baby weight the second time around. I know that being a mama of two with a very demanding full-time job is a real struggle, but I also realized that I was making excuses... so NO MORE EXCUSES. I WILL lose that second-baby weight and continue to stay healthy for my kids, my hubby, and myself! I want my kids to see me being active, and I want to enjoy being active with them for many years to come!

lol, i did not do it yet, but when i was actually doing the Super Charged Sculpt, i was thinking how involved my notes on it will have to be. for instance, did you count reps for things in the warmups/cooldowns? and wow, 4-limb stuff is gonna be tough (with/without upper body, etc). I plan on doing the work on Thursday night or sometime this weekend. good luck!!! lol.

Hi, REENIE! What a great idea, counting reps on a video! i'm gonna claim Super-charged Sculpting from (our fave!) the TransFIRMer Series. You're a genius! ;) See you on the boards!
