Ok, so here it is folks. Probably the number one New Year’s Resolution in America. And yes, it is also one of mine (notice the word, one, meaning, I have multiple resolutions!). Weight loss. Exercise. Eating healthy. However you want to phrase it, in 2010, this baby once again tops my resolution list.
Unlike saving $$$, to which I’ve actually been successful so far, I have failed miserably at the eating healthy/weight loss/exercise goal. Let’s just call it a “lifestyle change” for short. Yes, I know I gave birth to Faith almost nine months ago. Thanks to nursing her, I was able to lose the pregnancy pounds without even breaking a sweat. But that won’t last forever. Nor will it tone up my abs unfortunately.
Now, it’s just time to get serious. Or at least get off the couch for a start.
My goal is to be a fit mama, no laughing please! No, I don’t secretly long to be a fitness guru, but I do want to be in shape. Fitting exercise into my day is hard. I blame my lack of time. If I’m honest, it’s more my lack of motivation. But when I think of how I’d like to add another baby Lovell to our family at some point, I reason that I should get moving (literally!) because I would like to be in shape before I get pregnant with #2. Plus, I want to wear my bikini again at the beach this summer!
So…all you fitness/health buffs out there, how do you do it? Count calories? Carbs? Work out?
What do you do (or plan to do) to get in shape for 2010?
