Extreme Makeover: Me Edition Update

Well, Hellloooooo there!! How are you this morning?! It's time to join the fantabulous group of ladies that are working to get healthier over at Amber's. If you haven't been by yet, I highly suggest you run, not walk, on over! These ladies are the best!! I mean it! The best ever!! I've made wonderful friends and learned a lot of tips on getting healthy and staying motivated to continue what is sometimes a difficult journey :)

I've done pretty well this week. Stuck to my workout routine, and watched what I ate. I am down a 1/2 a lb. Hey, I'll take it!! I was more worried I might gain what I lost last week, back!! This is usually the case for me! You can read about that here.

This weeks question is to show a motivational picture that you use. I don't have any out in the house. Honestly, at my age...nope, not tellin ya!...and after carrying 4 punks around in my belly for 9 months body has strectched it's way into a whole 'nother realm. So I try to stay a little realistic. I'm focusing more on getting my bodyfat down. Not to say I wouldn't mind lookin like fitness model Elizabeth Anderson:
Hope you all had great weeks!!! Can't wait to see how everyone is doing!

Great job on your workouts and losing .5 pounds! Baby Steps!

That model is perfect. I love abs.....I wish I could see mine. LOL!

Have a great week!

Even more exciting than the .5 pound loss is that you lost 3 pounds last week that didn't creep back. YAYYYYYYYY! That is quite an accomplishment! I'm learning to embrace my "new" mother of three body, too. No matter how much weight I lost or how toned I get, my body will never look the way it did pre-kiddos. And I don't want it to :)

Tanielle said...

Awesome job!!! You are doing sooo good! Love that picture, like Connie, I'd like to see my abs too.:-)

Have a wonderful day!

Hi Lisa!
It sounds like you are doing awesome. And what a great attitude you have too! I know, our bodies are amazing - they have done so much for us. Especially after giving birth to our children. It's so good to keep it in perspective.

I have loved getting to know you. You are such a sweet, wonderful person!

Is that her top or one of those black out strips? :) A half a pound is great! I am looking at a picture of a cupcake on your blog. How cruel.:)

Woo hoo on the 1/2 pound!!

And I'm so glad you picked this picture. Check out her tummy, notice anything wonky?? They photoshopped her belly button. Good to know, because it makes me wonder what else they photoshopped! :)
