Fitness Friday

 I'm so happy to be doing this link up today with the awesome Shannon from Anchors Aweigh! We both have different sets of questions, so feel free to mix and match them if you please.

I am feeling really good about the progress I'm making. I'm not sure if I was wrong about how much I actually needed to lose in order to be at my pre baby weight or not but right now I'm within 9lbs of that dream! It's been about 17 days since I started trying get myself in gear so that means I've lost around 9lbs already. That seems like a ridiculous amount to shed so fast but I'm assuming my body knows what's best and doesn't want that extra weight hanging around any more than I do.

My motivation to get in better shape started - About three weeks ago. I realized I had made little to no effort to shed the extra weight left over from my pregnancy.

My favorite form of exercise is -  I really hate exercise  but when I HAVE to do it I guess the least tortuous form is hopping on the treadmill.

I despise -  All forms of exercise. Even if it's recreational. Even if it's just lifting my fingers on the keyboard to type how much I hate exercise.

I'm most proud of - Sticking with my dieting. They say it takes three weeks to form a habit and I am so close to that mark. I have slipped up a few times but I just get right back on it.

I regret - Not starting this earlier and not taking better care of myself to begin with. Never too late to start though, right?

Favorite workout song- I don't know why but I really like Miguel's "Sure Thing." Every time I put it on I feel pumped, even though it's a mellow song. It makes me think of my husband so I get motivated to be less of a fatass.

One food you'll never give up- Pizza. I'm like a little kid but I think that will always be my favorite food.

Where do you see yourself in six months- I really hope to have lost all the baby weight  and then some. I'm pretty confident that I will have, but you never know. I really hope I won't give up.

Way to go! Having a baby changes your body so drastically. I'm at my pre-baby weight...but it doesn't really matter because my body has changed so much. They're worth it though. ;)

Within 9 lbs., so completely awesome! You know you have a whole year right? I swear diet is key. Exercise helps for sure but it's all the many food choices we make each day that add up. Interested to know your daily eats, maybe next week. Keep it up.
