Go for it!

Wanting something is not enough. You have to be hungry enough to want to have it.

Today is the one of those days when sun is shining warmly on my side of the planet! Even the birds are out of my siding and on my deck basking in the sunshine.

And add a few good news (thank G-d) from the Philippines early this morning, the sunshine just makes me want to just jump and dance around in my backyard and just enjoy the moment.

This week is Week 7 of my P90x challenge! Wow-wow-wee! I can’t believe I’m almost two-thirds done.

I still don’t have that hard rock abs but I feel better and a looking more toned. I lost 5 pounds and 2 inches around my waist; even with my daily desserts – brownies, ice cream and some cocktails here and there!

Last week was tough. My mind and heart weren’t in it. I skipped the Yoga routine last Thursday and Kenpo on Saturday. But that’s okay. I’m onto Week 7 and just finished the Chest, Shoulders and Tricep routine, and then concluded it with Ab Ripper X; the arms are looking great, if I may say so.

But the abs….it might take a miracle for me to have that six-pack! Not enough Ab-Ripper X routine can tighten that loose skin! I have so much loose skin and stretch marks around the tummy.

( No one told me 21 years ago that gaining 70 pounds during pregnancy is a “no-no”. Who would have thought that “eating for two” does not mean I have to have 2 servings of everything, haha! Well, I enjoyed it so much, I gained that much again on my 2nd pregnancy. Good thing I only gained 50 pounds on the last two! But after all the pregnancies, I was never 95 pounds again, but that’s alright. I am having fun!)

It’s a lovely day today. After our daily walk-the-kids-to-school, my dear friend and I walked around the lake before heading home. We both have plenty of errands to do but it was a lovely morning so we opted to spend additional minutes walking and chatting. I’m so ready for spring and I’m totally looking forward to our Epcot’s Yatch Club weekend before heading to Delray Beach. Yes, three more weeks.

So, when you feel like saying, “I can’t do it”, just give that one push and before you know it, you’re almost at the finish line.

Have a great week everyone and give your family one big group hug!

  3. Hi Jen!
    Remember me? It's been a while! Just popped by to say hello. I always wonder why I wait so long between visits ... I am always inspired and uplifted by your posts.

    Good luck and keep going with your exercise program... it will be worth it! And, no, I don't think getting our pre-baby bodies back is all that likely, unfortunately. But we can still look darn good for our age! ;0)
