Hey Guys!!

Hi friends!! Welcome to the new blog! Don't worry, Hopelessly Ever After will still be in effect but I think I need this to get me back on that fitness bandwagon. Don't forget to join via GFC and Bloglovin' so I can see who's with me!!

About a year ago I made it a choice to start working out and eating healthy. I was making a lot of progress and even lost about 10 pounds (I put on a ton of muscle) until I broke my foot. I know, I know, and excuse. But truthfully it stopped me from my routine and once that happened it was so hard to get back on. My husband, Mike, and I also moved farther away from our gym so it takes me about 20 minutes to get there, now. However, that too is an excuse because Mike goes every day. That's right, I even have a gym rat husband and still can't get my ass in gear.

So...that's why I started this blog. Motivation is my biggest downfall. I was working out with a friend but truthfully, our little tiny gym is quite expensive. The only reason I could afford it is because of Mike's Correctional Officer discount, so I don't blame her for not wanting to pay a lot. She still works out but she does it to videos which is what I'm determined to do as well. A good excuse not to have to drive to the gym!!

Here's where I'm going to need your help! You guys are going to be my motivation. You have to keep me in check!! If you notice I haven't posted something useful in a while, you gotta get me right!

Here's where I'm freaking out. I had Mike take 2 pictures of me today. They are nastaaayyyy! So...look if you want, but that's what this blog is all about. Getting this body back in check. 
 So there I am. In all my glory. Look at the junk in that trunk!! OMG!! And I have this horrible "B" belly. Here let me spell it out for you. Sorry to make you look at this again. I'll make it smaller this time.

Hey at least I'm good with everything below the knee. :)
