It is now two years post pregnancy of my third child and I have decided that its time to focus on me. Now that the kids are older and are able to play quietly with toys or video games and don’t need constant supervision, I have decided to get in shape.
Having a degree in Kinesiology, I fully understand the mechanics, they importance of exercise and the how tos of getting into shape, but I’ve never had the motivation to do it. I guess you can call me a yo-yo exerciser. I will find a program (i.e. yoga tapes, Jillian Micheal’s 30 day shred, etc.), do it for a couple of weeks, then swear of exercising. Nothing seems to keep me motivated.
At the beginning of summer, when baggy sweaters and yoga pants gave way to tank tops and shorts, I began to analysis my appearance and realized I wasn’t happy with what I saw. Sure some people would look at me and say “you’re petite” or “you look great!”, but I just didn’t feel that way. My body ached, I had rolls on my stomach and I was generally unhappy with my appearance.
Funny how God works in mysterious ways. I was having a really “your ugly” day (all women have it once in awhile!) and I came across this post – Get Fit with Focus T25. I had never heard of the program before, but I was immediately smitten and felt like this was the answer I was looking for!
