This is from the blogs of The Not So Secret Confessions of a First Time Mom and Sippy Cups and Cloth Bums.
It's to help give support to fellow mothers (or anyone really) who are struggling to lose weight and/or to get in shape. It will be a weekly link-up that will take place on Thursday's. The linky will be live on our blogs the night before (Wednesday).
Each week we encourage you to make a blog post and include the New You 2011 button about what you did the previous week. This can include but not limited to: pounds lost, food you ate, exercise, goals, healthy eating questions, etc.
You do not have to have a blog to participate, feel free to leave us a comment on that week's New You 2011 thread with your pounds lost, etc.
We look forward to seeing you for the big kick out celebration on January 6th!
The first week it will be a get to know you type thing.
So get ready!
A little about me:
I am 27 years old and a mother of 2, my youngest is a little over 18 months old. I really don't need to lose weight as i am 121 lbs but i have a muffin top still and my butt and thighs are still bigger then i'd like. I wouldn't mind being 115lbs but i won't be crushed if i don't lose that much weight to get my flat belly and smaller hips, butt and thighs back. I have been in a few weight loss competitions with friend's but have not succeeded yet. I am now in a weight loss competition with my husband and friend and our goal date is March 11th. Of course i'm not gonna lose that because they both have more weight to lose then me but i'm really just doing it for a motivation for the two of them. We are doing it for money too so hopefully that motivates the two of them also. I am logging my exercise and food on myfitnesspal.com
To lose the extra fat that i have i'm planning to ride my exercise bike atleast 15 minutes every day and riding atleast 2 miles. Then we also have wii Fitness Plus, I plan to do different strength training and cardio things from the Wii Firness plus. Every other day or every day depending on my mood, i also intend to do atleast 25 crunches, with 3 repetitions. My family is also eating healthier and having less non healthy snacks in the house to be temptations. Good luck everyone who is on this journey with me!
