Time to get FIT!!!!

Time to get Fit! No more excuses!I love the show " The Biggest Loser" but unfortunately every time I watch it I'm eating chocolate chip cookies or ice cream! When Billy and I got married we were super healthy eaters and worked out every single day after work for like 2 hours. I would usually do 2 work out classes and then run 3 miles around the track at Orem Fitness Center. And Billy was super buff!
Oh how things have changed! Priorities change and having a perfect body falls to the bottom of the list. When we were newlyweds working out was something we both loved doing together. But we didn't have a house to take care of, a baby, or lots of other important things that keep us super busy.

I know we will not be able to work out 2 hours a day every day with our busy lives. But I think being healthy is super important. Not only do you look good, but you feel SO good! You have energy, you feel happier, you have way more confidence and you just feel healthy inside and out. It was nice being able to go up a flight of stairs with out feeling winded : )
( Billy deserves more credit though, he works out almost every day on his lunch break. Its me who needs to get it together!)

I have never felt as unhealthy in my whole life as I do now! And it's so awful. I get tired so easily! I'm moody, I have no energy and feel like I'm going to fall asleep all day long. And I think it's time to fix things!

I'm not saying I want to be a work out maniac...But I am going to find balance in my life. I'm going to make time to work out, find healthy recipes, and still have time for everything else going on! So LA FITNESS here I come! I was using the excuse that Brody freaks out everytime I go to the gym which is totally true! After ten minutes they come get me because he is so hysterical so I guess I'm going to have to wake up at the crack of dawn before Billy goes to work and hit the gym!

So any healthy recipes out there send them my way!!!

I love looking back and seeing what I USED to look like. It's fun to remember old times and know you actually could wear a 2 piece! ha ha Which I probably will never do again thanks to stretch marks and I'm a Mom now and feel like I have to set a better example for Brodster. No offense to anyone that wears them believe me I wore my fair share : )

Weight lost Goals:
Lose 13 pounds
Work out 5 days a week
Eat healthier
Drink my body weight in water

Let's hope that because I posted this on here I will feel obligated to stick to it!
I'm not looking to go on a diet. Diets don't work and when you lose the weight you will always gain it back. Because you can't be on a diet forever you always come off of it. It has to be a lifestyle change that you live for the rest of your life. I've always tried to do that. But once I got pregnant and starting having fun cooking and learning new recipes I kind of lost my way. So Anyway I'm getting back on track!

I had to post this picture cause I thought it was funny! This was when me and Billy were dating still. We went to Florida with his family and had so much fun! The days before we were all married and had kids! So fun!

Ha ha Lacey your so cute! I am the same way though. I used to be at the gym for 2 hours a night too! But I swear I barely have time for one hour if I am lucky! You have inspired me too though.

I also smiled at the two piece comment cause I am already shopping for a tankini since we want to have kids soon. I feel the same way about setting a good example! I have only found cute ones at Modbe let me know where you find yours!

Good for you. You know ThunderCats practice can be good exercise too (games not so much). Jonny plans to work us hard this season.

Question. You say you are going to drink your weight in water. Over what period of time? Please don't say a day or even a week. Even if you are only 100 lbs that would be 200 cups of water! You would get water intoxication! Justin is reading a book that recommends 3 liters a day.

You have inspired me. I will drink more water and less coke zero
