(It's not so much the picture that I use as motivation, but the saying, because I do want to be a "fit mama" and I love that Dude will do "jumping jacks" and "crunches" with me, and will do stretches with me before I go for a run!)
I admit, I started out pretty slow...working out about 2 or 3 mornings/days a week...with ambitions to add in more workouts. Lets be honest, that didn't exactly happen, but I did up my work outs to 4 or 5 mornings a week. Then I started adding in certain diet foods, eating very consciously, taking vitamins and supplements. Yes, I started to see a very signifigant change. When S. told me that he was definitely seeing a change too, my encouragement and enthusiasm raised considerably! I started taking my weight and measurements every week (on the same day and time) and wrote my weight on my bathroom mirror as a constant reminder and as motivation, like this pin I found on Pinterest.

So there you have it, my progess for the last 6 months. If you're interested at all, this is my Pinterest board of workouts that I've done and I look forward to putting another progress blog up in about 6 months!
