Did Someone say PRIZE?

So here's the update. I've been doing better. Not totally back on track, but WAY better than I was doing. I'm excited to be exercising again, even if it's not as intense as before. I'll get there again, but for now I'm working out ways to use my time wisely and concentrating on little things instead of the whole picture. Something new I've been trying this week is a mini workout in the evening while my littlest monkey is in the tub. Why didn't I think of this before? Some squats, pushups, basic pilates moves and I'm getting toned up while the kid plays. He thinks it's pretty amusing too (though at 16 months alot of things Mommy does are amusing). My point is....get creative!
On a side note, I'm thinking of doing a little contest. Anyone up for a challenge? I'm not sure exactly what the parameters will be, but I'm open to suggestions. Fitness or weight loss. I'm just curious if anyone is interested. There will definitely be a trophy and bragging rights up for grabs, as well as a small token prize. If I get 5 people who want to participate I'll set something up. Leave me a comment if you want in!

You've got my curiosity going..what kind of challenge. I'm a bit of a chicken when it comes to challenges..why? who knows. so...I "may" be in. :)

I'm glad you're doing better.

Julius loves to watch me exercise.. he actually jumps in to try n' copy me..so cute!! In his stocking this year Santa is bringing him lil' 1 lb weights (he trys to use mine. He says he wants "big muscles like Daddy.").
