Time To Get Serious

I have roughly one month to whip my behind into the best shape of its life. While Ryan's oldest children were here we focused on having fun and enjoying their summer vacation. I admit that I didn't focus a whole lot onto changing my body, but I did maintain while having fun. 

We are a little over a month away from our beach trip. I am absolutely determined to have better pictures than the first time I took Caleb to the beach. 


Those before pictures are engraved in my mind. I don't simply want to show a difference this time around. No, I want to completely blow those pictures out of the water. 

At the time I can vividly remember sitting on the beach dreaming of a day that I could wear something other than a maternity swimsuit. I think I was more in love with the idea of feeling comfortable in my own skin. I've never known what it's like to walk down a beach and not be ashamed of my body. I've never felt that joy and I have this unbelievable need to have that. 

I don't need to be model thin or gorgeous. I just want to play on the beach with my two favorite guys without worrying about being mistaken for a beached whale. 

So it's time to buckle down and see what I can do with a month's time. 
Wish me luck!

  1. I'm feeling ya sista. I'm starting to get serious about being healthy and watching what I put into my body. I just found your blog a few days ago and am starting to follow you (also via Facebook). Good luck... you can do it.

  3. Preach it, Sistah! I totally get what you are saying here. I mentioned wanting to lose another 30lbs and tone up and a friend told me "I think you look great now". Well, I feel great now too BUT I know that there are still things I'd like to shape up and change. I have a 4 month challenge because I have a goal for my birthday in December. I'll keep you in mind as accountability for this month since you'll be going strong to meet your goal too!

    1. I've gotten a lot of that whole "you don't need to lose anymore" stuff. I know I feel so much better and look a lot different, but I want to do a little more. I totally get it! I can't wait to see your birthday pictures!

  6. I am right there with you, dear. I don't know what it is like to not be ashamed of my body. I even recently had a survey question asking me my favorite part and all I could come up with was my eyes. You will do great at changing your body. I can tell how determined you are. Good luck!
