Fit as a fiddle... an update!

Here I am, 21 days into my 30 Flippin' Days of Fitness (click on my sidebar to see all about Steph's challenge). And while I have certainly not been entirely consistent, I'm happy to report that only 8 or 9 of those days have been a FAIL.

The updated chart (click to enlarge)

I know, I know, that doesn't sound great, but really I didn't expect to find myself exercising as much as I have. It's been quite enjoyable, actually-- I LOVE the days where I get in a good half-hour of working out. So refreshing! It's been good for me, because I've learned that if I simply make working out a priority, even if it's only for 15 minutes, I can usually fit it into my day somehow.

However, the sad thing is that I haven't really lost any weight yet. Boooo. You know, it would be SO EASY to lose weight and be thinner if I didn't love food quite so much. :)

I may not be melting away the pounds (yet), but I did get my hair done about a week ago. Isn't it amazing how great a new haircut can make you feel? Hello, bangs!! I missed my bangs and I'm glad they're back.

Also, thanks to my sweet Jessica watching all three of my girls and my lovely mother-in-law gifting me with a certificate for my shower before Rosalie was born, I was able to go get a pedicure this morning!

Pink sparkly toes with rhinestones make any girl smile!

Have a lovely weekend, everyone. xoxo

I understand that the goal is to exercise every day, but seriously, you're doing GREAT!! It makes me sad to see FAIL on the days you didn't exercise because you're making such a good effort and getting lots of good exercise in! I love your bangs and your cute toesies!!

Good for you! Maybe I should start making a calendar of when I actually work out so I would stay motivated to do it! Hopefully now that school is out for the summer, I'll be able to get up and do it in the mornings.

Love your toes! I'm in dire need of a good peddi!

your wishcake. said...

First of all, could you BE any more adorable? Love the photo!

And congrats on the incredible effort you're making with fitness. I can't imagine how you're able to do it at all, especially with your little ones running around. I mean, goodness, I have a hard enough time making an effort - I can't even imagine what it must be like while being a mama to three little girls! Heehee. You are my idol. :)

How cute Talia! I love the bangs ... that has got to be one of the cutest self taken pictures EVER! You are too cute! I am so envious of your pink sparkly toes with rhinestones! I have a gift certificate that Ryan gave me for christmas that I am still saving for when I absolutely can not reach my toes any more ... I am getting close to that though =)

You look simply FABULOUS!!!! LOVE the bangs and I also LOVE your sweater! I saw it in a pic on one of your sister's posts too and wanted to comment to you about it! :)

Great job on your workout! And I'd just bet that even if you don't get an actual workout in on a given day, chasing after 3 girlies and a hubby is certainly a workout in itself!

Andrea said...
