To hear the words, "Have you lost weight?" has to be some of the sweetest words to hit your ear. LOL.  For me it sends me into mutiple cartwheels and backflips with a smile from ear to ear.

Last year, I worked out real hard.  Everyday I was at it.  Jogging for 30 minutes at first and then increasing my distances.  I lost about 17lbs. Such a great feeling!! And then....daylight savings time invited itself into my life and the exercising stopped.  And we all know what that means...the pounds started creeping back on and we were heading into the Christmas holidays!  What a disaster!  I didn't gain all of the pounds back but enough to make me go "WTH!".

I just recently started exercising again especially now that we have sprung an hour ahead and have more daylight in the evenings.  But not every evening is the same.  For us busy mothers it is extremely difficult to get in any sort of exercise.  Either we are caught up doing something at work, have to go to the grocery store, or some child has an after school activity, etc.  But we should kinda, sorta exercise, eh? That was a trick question! Yes, we should :). 

That's me on the Sidney Poiter Bridge (yes, I had time to snatch a pic while exercising, don't act like you don't do it too!)

So I stumbled on this routine (bottom left picture) that you can do right in your bedroom and requires no equipment.  It's a start! FITNESS AT HOME.  I challenge you for the next month, at least 3 times out of the week you complete this routine.  I would love to hear some feedback on your results!
