Getting rid of writer's bum

Jillian Michaels: 30 Day Shred [DVD]

Phew, so I'm know the size of my rump isn't completely attributed to writing, but every time I sit down at the computer (okay maybe not every time) I think about how sedentary this hobby of mine is...which is why it is good to have other hobbies.

I got on the scale this morning (which doesn't always make me happy,but today it did) I have eight pounds to go before I'm at my pre-baby weight.  Huzzah!  That calls for an ice cream sundae! jk.

Anywho, my success is attributed to the two things above--and the pulling out of the double stroller.

Man, the 30-day shred (maybe if you were in shape already you'd scoff at this) holy crap for one who was looking to get back in shape, this kicks my writers bum.  The best part about it, the workout is only 20 minutes, which means I don't really have an excuse not to do it.

The Good Mood Food diet (which I tweak because I am nursing my kiddo) is awesome.  It's all about what to eat.  Which is good because when I have a list of things I shouldn't eat, all I do is eat them.  I don't follow it perfectly, but I've been eating way more vegetables consistently than I have my whole life, and I like vegetables--so that's saying something.  

My double jogger--I found this puppy at a consignment shop before my second kiddo was even a twinkle in my eye, because it was $60 and they can run hundreds of dollars.  The Bob double jogger is $500 bucks. Ouch.  Anyway we've been going on walks after dinner, and it is so nice--hopefully the weather will stay good for a while.

  Okay, guilty, this wasn't Halloween either, it was however a dress up day at school, and I was so exceedingly nerdy I took every opportunity to not be myself.  :) I got over that.  Although I still love dressing up.  


  1. Awww, you look cute for the dress-up day :) And boy do I hear you about writer's butt. I try doing butt squeezes, but I usually get into writing or reading something and just stop. And the holiday eating frenzy season is coming up too....darn it. Then again, I already have eggnog in the fridge, so I only have myself to blame :)

  2. Good for you, you're almost there! I need to exercise more, definitely. My problem is making the time. I could probably do it if I'd get my writer's bum out of bed a little earlier in the morning. :P

  3. Ooh, I think I'll try the 30 Day Shred. I'm a fan of short workouts :) And Jillian.

  4. What a stylish your side panels. AWESOME.
