A few weeks late...

So I know most people made their New Years Resolutions a few weeks ago. Lots of people started dieting and working out. Well, I was a few weeks late to jump on this bandwagon.

I think it may have been after Sunday night watching all the beautiful people on the Golden Globes when it hit me.

Dang, Gina.

It's about time to get rid of this jiggle in my middle and tone up.

So Monday when we went to the store I stocked up on fruits, veggies, slimfast, and Smart Ones.

This week my meals have consisted of a slimfast for breakfast, a smart ones with a yogurt and some carrots for lunch, and another smart one meal for dinner. I'm not going diet crazy, just trying to do better than my holiday eating... I was soo bad!

As for working out....
If you know me at all. You know I. Dont. Work. Out.

My friends suggested I start walking with Reagan. So I tried it on Tuesday.

Quick recap: the first mile was good. The second mile was like hell on wheels. Reagan screamed for his Mimi (who was no where near... but clearly thinks she can save him from the evil mommy), managed to get half way out of the stroller all the while bruising his tummy on the belt. Needless to say, I didn't want to do it on Wednesday. But today I thought I would try something I haven't tried since we moved into the new house (umm.. ya. May of last year). I plugged in the treadmill! Yes, the treadmill in Reagan's playroom that has turned into an additional toy shelf since it is never used. I parked Reagan in the living with the Toy Story dvd (Mother of the Year, I know) and I started walking. I walked 2 miles with the help of my Nook. AMAZING! It was sooo NOT boring being able to read while working out. So, well see... this might be the start of something new. I've gotten on these kicks before.... but fingers crossed it sticks awhile. At least till I get skinny again!

Ps- I bought a book recommended to me by my friend Holly (The Bright Side of Disaster) and was reading it on my Nook. PPS- here is the Lily Pulitzer Nook cover I bought with some gift card money from my friends Kelli and Lisa... How stinkin cute is it?

I am so with you, I do not like working out. I think that walking is a great start. Maybe I can get that movement in my life too! I've been trying to eat a little healthier and remember to stop when full, why is that easier said than done!?

Cute Nook cover!!

I HATE working out too. I wish I had a treadmill at the house b/c the hardest part for me is just going to the gym. GOOD LUCK with getting healthy! :)

Good luck girl! I'm trying to get rid of my jiggle too. It sucks :(

You are not the only one who hates working...I absolutely loathe it! I really need to start doing some kind of physical activity...for real.

I love you Lilly Nook Cover, it's cute!
