I have decided to start trying to work some of the extra pounds off that I have accumulated in the last ohhhh ummmm almost 11 years since my last son was born....YIKES I KNOW!!!! So anyway I have cut myself back to only allowing myself to have one diet coke a day.... and I drink lots of water and actually have added some fiber drinks to the mix , which have turned out to be very tasty, my problem has never been that I eat too much its more that I dont eat the right things and Im not a diet kind of person . I also dont get any exercise so I have added vitamins to my life, added fiber to keep me regular (something Ive always had problems with) and Josh, Devin and I have started bike riding and walking every night. I have not rode a bike in like 10 years and its not that I forgot how to I just forgot that it hurts your butt!!! and wow trying to pedal in the wind is soooo frickin hard!!!! But after we have been out for a good 45 minutes and we take our 15-20 minute walk I feel so much better. Of course I wish there was a miracle diet pill that just ate the fat away while I was sleeping but since thats not the case I will continue with this and hope and pray that I soon start seeing results. Im not hoping to look like a beauty queen or anything (though that would be nice hehe) I just want to feel comfortable in my own body once again. And with Josh and Devin as my little personal trainers to keep pushing me and not letting me give up then I should get there. I actually just looked it up and walking for 20 minutes I can burn 106 calories, and riding my bike for 45 minutes burn 545 calories. WOW that makes me more motivated!!!! I will keep you posted as time goes and if any of you have suggestions on whats work for you let me know!!
AND HOPEFULLY ONE DAY THE "AFTER"
