Do you work out?

Why, yes, yes I do.

I won't come out & say that I love it or have had some huge change of heart and suddenly hate my slovenly nature...but I do love the results.

Until very recently, I weighed more than I weighed the day I gave birth to Klaw...before I gave birth.

I have lost 12 pounds, slowly but surely. I have gained muscle mass. My clothes look better & I'm not embarrassed to wear a swimsuit.

I have lost inches in my hips & waist my chest, too, but I don't want to measure that. (I have 1.2 mil bras of different sizes, so I just switch out when necessary)

Klaw has enjoyed his hour or two at the Y, although it resulted in both of us getting sick in April. I was out for the count for about 2 weeks. Klaw had to be hospitalized for a weekend because we had GI issues in addition to upper respiratory issues.

I can honestly say not being able to stay at the hospital with your child is possibly one of the worst the things to go through. Chris was with him the whole time, thankfully. He had to take leave the following week because I was in no condition to care for myself or a toddler.

However, we are back on track. Klaw gets to play with other kids and he loves it. The staff at the local Y seems to be awesome and there is not as much turnover as I experienced when I worked in daycare.

I'm working on strength training, jogging (which I hate), & swimming (which I love).

For as long as I held out, I'm glad we finally joined the Y. I haven't felt this healthy in a long time.

I haven't felt like showing any skin in public in a long time. If you knew me 10+ years ago, you'd realize what a big deal that is...(right, Wesleyannes?)

Are there changes you need to make in your life? What's holding you back?
