The time has come.......

This is not a pity party. I am just documenting my upcoming adventure. And by adventure I mean BUTT WHOOPIN!
I am going to start P90X tomorrow. I have never worked out a day in my life. This may be my last blog post ever. It is something I have to do.
There has only been one time in my life that I struggled with my self image. I was in HS and I was on a new medication that made me gain almost 20 lbs. As soon as I stopped taking it, the weight just melted off with no effort.
I have noticed that the weight is creeping back on. I know, I know. I just had a baby. FOUR months ago. I need to kick this now.
The straw that broke this camels back? I went to Ross today to look for a new church dress. I put several in my cart, in various sizes. Then when I went to the fitting room they were not even CLOSE to fitting. I just wanted to die. So that is it. I am done. I kicked caffine and I am kickin this weight. TO THE CURB!
So if you see me at McDonalds SMACK ME! I am going to buckle down and eat right, and actually work out. I really want to become passionate about getting healthy. I am lucky to have the metabolism that I do. Now I just need to utilize it!

Alli you look great for just having 4 kids! :) I know, I know I felt the same you do, but that work out is GREAT I loved it. If you have the money and want to get on the diet that I was on let me know. You will love it and in no time you will have the weight off and in places that you never thought you could get off. Let me know. Love ya

Good for you!!! I hear that work out is great. I can't wait to hear more from you on this. Just remember the 1st week of any work out is hard...but you WILL notice a difference. Just stick with it! ENJOY!

Laura said...

Good luck, you can do it! Tony Horton will kick your butt right into shape!

Go Alli, Go Alli, Go Go Go Alli!!! I heard that work out kicks your butt and is SO good!! I'm gonna try it this summer since I won't have a gym membership wherever we go. You'll have to let me know how it goes! Working out is so addicting once you get it in your system. I LOVE step aerobics right now. I think it's something you would really like since you like dancing and are good at it. You'll have to give it a try sometime. And for the record, I think you look fabulous especially since you DID just give birth a few short months ago. The exact same thing happened to me though, after I had Brody I was trying on church dresses and wanted to BARF! They were not very forgiving... good luck girl!

OK I think I will march down the street and just smack you and not wait to go to McDonalds! LOL

Seriously, you look SO amazing!! You cannot even tell you have had 4 children, much less JUST had one!!

I wish you great luck with your workout but seriously you look GREAT already!!!!!

Good luck sista!! I heard P90x kicks your trash! But it sure works! (I'll stick to the yoga or something like that...I can't handle hard core aerobics.) And if it makes you feel any better, I still can only wear about 2 pairs of my old jeans (because they're stretchy). And though I can do the buttons up, I still have a major muffin top. Hmm...maybe I should do P90x. I need to do somethin! Maybe laying off the Double stuffed oreos will help. Good luck gettin your workout on!

And by the way, you look fabulous, so don't get your workout on too much, we don't want you to blow away in the wind ;)
