I've been slacking.

I've only been doing walking as exercise. I haven't been doing any strength training at all lately. Now some of this I blame on being sick for the past week, some I blame on bad time management, and some I blame on being too tired.

It's got to stop, no more excuses.

Walking is great exercise, don't get me wrong, but I had the dream again last night. My long time readers might remember me mentioning it before. The one where I'm drowning in a sea of loose skin. It's really gross and super disturbing. It always freaks me right out (you would freak out too, trust me).

I'll admit I've been lax and just sitting back and enjoying the number on the scale shrinking. However, this weight last year, I was in smaller size pants. Granted having a baby does all sorts of wonky things to your body (if you haven't experienced it, you'll just have to take my word for it) but it still bothers me that I'm almost pre baby weight and still two sizes bigger than I was last year. I think the major difference is the strength training. I did crunches and push ups religiously last time around. I haven't gotten into the routine of doing them as regularly this time.

So as of today I'm pledging to do crunches and push ups everyday and my Wii Fit Strength Training and Yoga regimen 3 days a week. And then we'll see what my pants have to say next time I try to squeeze into them.

The 'follow' thingamabobs don't work for me. But I do have you on my reader so your blog pops up on my computer and my phone. :)

I hate seeing celebs with flat abs a month after their child is born. Not all of us have personal trainers, so it projects an unrealistic idea of postpartum bodies. I am not sure if my lower abs will ever be flat, and I am certain my boobs will never be perky again.

Turkey -- then we'll count you as a follower. :D

I know, right. I could kill Heidi Klum. She has like 4 or 5 kids and still can model lingerie!!! I will probably never have flat abs again (I say again like I ever had them to begin with LOL) but I certainly don't want to have stomach skin that hangs down to my knees either flapping in the breeze.

(I did mention the dream was horrifying, right?)
