My hubby always "weighs in" (of course, only after I've whined about it again and again). He thinks it's because as a teacher I was always up and moving around (and putting kids in basket holds-but that's a whole 'nother story), and as a writer I am always in a sitting position.
It used to be (sigh) I gained five pounds, starved for two days, and the pounds came off. But nothing like that works anymore-- not even cutting out sweets and not eating after 7 pm.
Despite walking my dog for two miles every single day, the weight doesn't come off. Probably b/c my body has become accustomed to it. And now I've gone up a pants size (*crying*). I had an easier time losing the baby weight--GEEZ.
SO: I finally decided I needed to kick it into gear and do something NEW for my body. A new exercise routine.
I used to take exercise classes before *kid* but I probably could only make time for one day a week now.

And since my friends have threatened (:D) to invite us to an indoor waterpark in two weeks and we're going to Florida in March, I've decided I've complained enough already.
About ten years ago I used to do the Leslie Sansone Walk Away the Pounds tapes and loved them.
In the exercise section at Target the other day, I saw her newer DVD's and decided to take the plunge again. Oh and I also bought a set of free weights too!
This is the one I chose, and have vowed to do it three times a week:
You know why I like Leslie so much?
First, because the moves are so basic (marching in place, leg kicks, side to side, knee lifts) anyone can keep up.
Second, because she makes you feel comfortable and tells you it's okay to just march in place if you feel tired during a new move. As long as you keep moving.
Thank you for giving me that permission, Leslie!
Wish me luck as I walk away my belly fat--LOL!!!!
HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!
