Blowing the Dust Off of this Old Blog

I've had a busy year:

I moved to Utah.

Got pregnant.

Moved back to California.

Had the baby.

Gained 45lbs.

Fit into only two pairs of my pants (both pregnancy pants).

With all that being said, it's time to blow the dust off the scale and this blog and get back on the wagon! It's amazing how out of shape you get when you don't work at it everyday. Before I was doing 400+ crunches a day -- 200 in the morning and 200 at night -- and doing 100 push ups -- 50 in the morning and 50 at night (I hate push ups) and now I'm at a lowly 100 crunches and 10 push ups. However, the important thing is I'm back to doing them and plan on getting back to where I was before.

I'm a woman on a mission. In May, my husband and I are taking our two boys to Disneyland on a family vacation. There will be cameras there and photos taken and I'm assuming it'll be expected that I be in said photos. I want to be back in my "skinny" jeans by then which means I need to lose 3 pants sizes in two months (which is why I'm going to be the "crunching queen").

So, I'm again making the promise to exercise at least 30 minutes a day as well as do stretching, crunches, and the dreaded push ups. I promise to make healthier food choices but also to make it livable so I can stick with it. I promise to ignore the siren's call of fast food and drive past to eat at home something healthier than a Big Mac and Large Fries.

So far, so good. But then again it's only day 3.
