So I have a secret to confess: I’ve been working out. Well kind of. You see I am doing the Mamavation Two Week Challenge and I spend a lot of the workout wincing and laying on the floor crying. And that’s only a slight exagerration. Before this I think it had been a good six months since I had worked out. And it’s been a good six years since I have been in any kind of decent shape.
I thought 2011 was going to be the year that I got my body back and finally lost all that “baby weight”. Instead I added another ten pounds and have reached new levels of slackitude. But I finally have hit the wall where I know something needs to change. So I signed up for two weeks of (to me) grueling exercise. I haven’t told anyone for fear of failure but I am thinking that public accountability may be the way to go.
As an addition to the challenge, I have also been trying to change the way I eat. My husband got some rather bad cholesterol and blood pressure results (unfair since he is actually committed to working out and is actually in better shape post kids) so I have added incentive to change. It’s been baby steps so far (let’s just say I ate a few too many pieces of Halloween candy.) But I can already tell a difference.
Part of diet changes is drinking more water. I usually stick with plain filtered water but a special treat these days is Metromint water. It’s refreshing and unlike other flavored waters, it is free of artificial ingredients. Everything in it is all natural and it’s zero calories. I am a fan. Which is why I am excited that I get to give away a case on my blog.
