So here's the deal. I've posted on this subject "Keeping In Shape...." multiple times so I'll link you to those posts here, here, here and here if you'd like to read them! I posted here that I am stronger and more in shape than I've ever been, and I'm a mom now! Getting in shape is not easy! In fact, most of the time it just plain sucks, ha ha! Eric never had the 9-5 work schedule so I found myself at the gym at 4am before, and I've taken Mia on hundreds of runs in the stroller, and now that I'm brave enough to take Mia to the germ-infested gym daycare, we have a good routine! But I'll tell you what, as bad as it sucked getting back in shape, I never once regretted it! I have high energy, I can keep up with my toddler and I feel good about myself! Something that every woman deserves! It took me months of trial and error to figure out the "diet" (I didn't really diet, just cut out foods and ate less of some, and more of others) and the workout routine that worked for us. Now I just get to maintain my eating and workout habits and it doesn't really feel like work anymore! But chasing after Mia as she's running away from me to get to the park before I can take into our house? That feels like work!
Now on another note, that has absolutely nothing to do with this post, those pictures of Mia killll me dead! We've been dying to get pictures of her in Eric's boots and hat (she loves to wear this stuff) and these did not disappoint :)
