Hee-Hee...wasn't that bumper sticker from my last post so funny?
I came across it a week or so ago, and had to put it on here.

Oohhh...I started working out again last week.
It's been a long time since I've been at it, and it really shows. I've barely lost any of the weight I put on with my last pregnancy, and the extra kilos are taking their toll on my feet, back and overall mental well-being.

I started with just 20 minutes a day on the treadmill, and today worked up to 30 minutes.
I'm using a rolling hills, walking program, 'cause this girl don't run...unless someone is chasing me with a large butcher's knife of course ;)

I've calculated that I'd like to lose about 15 kgs to start feeling happy about myself.
There I put it out here for all to see.
I'm committed.
