It's time. It's time to actually do something about this post baby, baby, baby, baby body. Most people roll their eyes at me when I start talking about how I need to get in shape. The people that know me best know that I'm a big talker when it comes to stuff like this. I can talk all day long about health, that doesn't mean I apply it to myself. The people that don't know me well roll their eyes because to most people I appear thin. I feel crazy blessed that the baby weight kind of just falls off after each baby. Mix this with knowing the right clothes to wear to make me appear thinner, I think I look pretty decent. However, I call myself skinny fat. You see, just looking at me in clothes I look like a thin person. Look at me in a bikini (which you will never see me in by the way) and this body is complete mush. I'm sure there's muscles under there somewhere? Maybe, maybe not? I haven't seen one in so long that I'm not so sure anymore.
After my partial midlife crisis when I turned 30, that's when I decided that I need to be a more disciplined person physically and spiritually. Let's face it, with 4 kids there is no spare time to work these things in. If I don't make time for every important thing I need to do, it's just not going to get done. There is never going to be extra time to read my bible and have quiet time with the Lord, I have to make time for that. There's not going to be 45 minutes in my day where I can work out uninterrupted, I have to make time for that. A few months ago I joined a local boot camp and it was fantastic. However, it was at 6:30 three evenings a week and it was almost impossible to be consistent in going because of mine and the Hubby's work schedule. I started doing research on all the local gyms and different classes. I knew that the only way I could make classes on a regular basis is if I went before my family gets up in the morning. That's when I heard about hot yoga and pilates.
I went on Saturday morning and toured the studio. The owner was super nice and we talked yoga, life and adoption for over 45 minutes. I watched people come in and out and guess what...they didn't all look like fitness models. I didn't feel like I was completely out of my element and actually got excited about starting. Not only is it great for toning your body, but apparently it's a huge stress reliever. Maybe after a few classes I can wean myself off Zoloft? Can I get an amen? So, tomorrow is my first class. While all of you are sleeping peacefully, I will be getting my yoga on. I'm putting this out there for the whole world to know so that when my 5 followers run into me and ask me how my classes are going I hopefully won't hold me head in shame and say I quit, but instead, tell you to check out this hot momma's 6 pack. What, what.
I'll keep you posted. No, I will not post before and after pictures.
