The last time I really updated was in October 2010! I never revealed this on my blog, but the reason why I really stopped blogging here was because I was pregnant with my first child. I know that you can incorporate exercise when you’re pregnant, but for me, I was really cautious and decided the most exercise I would do was walking. I was also feeling really sick due to pregnancy hormones, and felt sick a lot. Fast forward to April 11, 2011, I gave birth to a healthy baby boy and being a mother took over and didn’t give me much room to do anything else.
My son is now 4 months old now, and it really hit me last night. I really need to get back into shape. I need to take off the pregnancy weight and I want to be able to fit into the clothes I used to fit into before I got pregnant. Getting rid of a bunch of clothes made me sad knowing that I couldn’t fit into them, and the idea of buying clothing sizes that I never thought I’d buy also made me feel bad. So I decided there is no better time to make a change than now. Because if I don’t do it now, when will I ever?
I bought Jillian Michaels’ Ripped in 30 DVD and I’m pretty excited to try it out. I also plan to buy new sneakers so it will motivate me to keep at working out. I also want to start eating a lot better than I am now. I know it’s a lot to get back into a workout routine, but I want to do this. It’s not only for me, but it’s for my son too. I want to set an example for him as he gets older too.
I decided that in the coming weeks I am going to start rearranging some things at the blog too. One thing at a time, but I’ll get there. I really gotta get back into workin’ on my fitness!
