Back here again

Anyone who knows me, knows that I go up and down with my weight.  I was up, lost 45 lbs, stayed that way for quite a while and have been slowly creeping back up.  Actually I shouldn’t say creeping, I shot back up and have stayed there since before having Tanner.  I can’t even blame it on the kids either because I only gained 10-15lbs with each and lost it all right away.  It is the rest of this darn weight that seems to be my problem.  I am not blessed with a petite physique.  I have these German hips and thighs that are great for doing tough girl jobs like rearranging furniture and carting around kids but as of late are a bit extreme for my taste.

So…I’m back here again.

Ready for a change.

Ready to get healthier.

Ready for more energy.

Ready to take some time for myself in order to have a happier, healthier family.

I don’t have grand (unrealistic) visions that I feel plague women.

I still love myself and love how I look MOST days.

I know I would still have all that love at a smaller size.  

I know what I have to do.

I’ve done it all before….UGH!!

Time to write down what I put in my body, to treat food like fuel and make good choices.

Most importantly it’s time for me to GET MOVING!!!  I stay busy with Tanner (which is probably why I haven’t ended up on Biggest Loser Yet), but I need to REALLY MOVE.


Get sore muscles.

Today I prepared to get shredded.  I started Jillian Michael’s 30 day Shred Video.  It is perfect for a busy lady like me.  The INTENSE 20 minute workout can be easily snuck in during naptime (right between cleaning and blogging of course)

I’m kicking my own butt into gear (with Jillian’s help…she’s a little scary).

I am holding myself accountable and ready to go. 

I don’t want to come back here again.


So, from time to time I will be posting my progress of my Operation: Get Healthy.  It is more for myself and accountability than anything else but support and encouragement are never a bad thing.  I also have taken a rather real (aka unflattering) BEFORE pic and plan and having noticeably different AFTER image.  Depending on how brave I feel, I might..just might share these with my loyal blog buddies.

  1. Good for you Heidi! Let me know what you think about 30 day Shed by Jillian. I have been debating whether I should get it or not.
