So since writing my last blog, I've managed to lose 3 pounds. I'm proud of this considering that I really haven't had a lot of time to get workouts in the past couple of weeks. I work for a college bookstore and the students started back last ... Read more
I have been very relaxed on my workouts all summer. I saw myself in the mirror the other day and I looked pregnant without actually being pregnant. I asked my 2 year old (who usually will say no to anything) if I looked fat and he said "Yes Mo... Read more
We finally had a session together. She had me working on a lot of different things in our 45 min session. I know that it was working because the next day, I could really feel it in the areas that we worked.

Well it's been awhile since I've updated my blog. My son turned 2 a few weeks ago. I can't believe how fast the time has gone.
In that time, I really wasn't very focused on my working out and staying healthy. I managed to gain weight so tha... Read more

So I redid Week 2 this week.
So, I did W2D3 today. This was the first time doing it outside for Week 2. I don't know if I can do this outdoor running thing. I felt like I was going to die when I got done. Why is it that when I run on th... Read more
