Back in January I shared some of my exercise tips for starting off the new year in my Get Fit post. Today I want to focus on one of the things that helps me the most with wanting to get my butt out of bed and exercising. It’s LOOKING good. It might sound silly but it’s a big deal for me. If I feel frumpy or uncomfortable in what I’m wearing it isn’t going to happen. Right after having had a baby isn’t a pretty time, let’s face it. If you are like me the weight just doesn’t fall off, I gotta work for it. So what I wear matters.

Did it come easily for me? No. Do I love it now? Yes. Do I hate it when I miss a day? Yes, it drives me crazy. I am one of those people who exercise so that she can eat what she wants. I know that’s not the way it should be but it’s the truth. I love food and no one is going to change my mind. With that being said I know that many of us set our New Year’s resolutions for being more healthy or to lose weight. In fact, in 2015, fitness was the number one resolution. So today’s post is to help you in some small way to achieve that goal with some of the things that have helped me to achieve my goals. Continue reading
