Exercising... again. Finally.

So this was day 1 of the 30 Day Shred.

If that sounds familiar,  well, it should. I went through this a couple of years ago when Jake was about a year old (and there were no plans for another baby). And stopped when I found out I was pregnant with Jackson.

Yeah. Preggers. That was a surprise.  Exciting but unexpected.

That was 18 months ago and I've been great at finding excuses for why I didn't have time, energy, or child-free moments since then.

So at that point I didn't just stop doing the shred.. I pretty much stopped doing ANYthing (except eat. I did lots of that. Especially eating for two... ahem.) and now, I'm about 10 lbs. (okay, more like 15) over the weight I was when I found out I was expecting.

So I'm getting back into it.

Today was day one. And I'm partly in it to improve my health, and partly because I found a great trench, and I've *always* wanted one, on sale (my jaw dropped when I saw the price and I immediately clutched it to me and started eying other shoppers with distrust. Stopped just short of stroking it and calling it Preciousssss...) at Target last year that I MUST fit into this spring.

I'll have to post a picture when I wear it for the first time.  Can't wait.

Unfortunately this means cutting back on my candy intake. No more red hits, licorice,  or *sigh* Hot Tamales.

But it will be SO worth it.
