If you haven't noticed, I have gained quite a bit of weight. I've always had a fast metabolism, and have always hated being too skinny. But a month or two ago, I wasn't too skinny, I was probably a perfect weight, plus a little pooch. All of a sudden ( and 23,532 cupcakes later), I gained a whopping 12 pounds. My pooch is getting harder and harder to hide, so it was time to start working out. I have been doing Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred. Today, will be day 3. That jaunt is hard. I read great reviews about it after Dev was born, but probably only did it a couple times. The stress of being a new parent + house buying + job seeking, oh, and plus breastfeeding, helped me lose the weight.
So now I leave you with yesterday's pictures, and yes, I realize I don't look big in them.
I actually did something different with my hair:
here's one side:
And the other:
tank: thrifted at buffalo exchange in SanFran ($8?)
black pants: f21 old, ($14)
old navy sandals: sale, ($11)
Oh, and I wanted to share this pic because Devin is wearing a very cute Barcelona futball outfit, thanks to his Aunt Vanessa! Isn't it adorable?!
So there you have it! Now I gotta get to those crunches and butt kicks. See ya soon!
Disclaimer: I do not think I am "fat." However, I realize I could stand to lose a couple pounds and definitely tone up. Otherwise, I am happy with my curves. I think curves on woman are beautiful, and I think life is too short not to eat yummy ass food. I'll dedicate a whole post to my philosophy on woman and body image issues sometime soon.
