Happy Monday! Monday’s are awesome, especially when I don’t have to go to work! Wahooo! Thank you Mr. President(s)! It feels weird heading out the door to run this late in the morning, but I can certainly get used to it…
(Wow, 2 things here; 1. I need a tan, 2. I need to clean our mirror when I get home).
Back to Monday. Let’s get the week started with some serious HAUTENESS!!! Monday’s smoking HAUTE MAMA is:
Becky from AZ!
(I wish my hair could ever look that perfect!)
“Before Zoe (daughter) was born, conceived, or really even thought of, I had been up about 20 lbs over my “ideal” weight and then took off all but about 5 lbs by exercising about 3 hours a day with Greg( husband) after work every day when we first started out together. But then with fertility treatments, etc, I gained 15 of it back. By the time we hit our second fertility treatment cycle (the first one ended in the loss) and become pregnant with Zoe. I went from working out 3 hours a day to being afraid to move…and went from 125 lbs pre-IF treatment to 185 lbs when I left the hospital after her delivery. YIKES! Imagine my surprise when she didn’t end up being a 60-lb baby! Because she was c-section, it took a while to get to the point where I was even allowed to work out, and even then, I struggled with any abdominal exercises. And by a while, I mean 6 weeks before I had the okay to exercise and MONTHS before I could do ab work. “
“In March 2010, after my dad’s death in the car accident in December, I took a renewed interest in my fitness. Even though he was killed in an accident, some things came to light that made me realize that he was sort of a ticking time bomb. Quite frankly, an accident is better than what was going to happen with how he was eating and treating his body while he had type II diabetes. I also needed the exercise to deal with the grief and depression – if there was ever a time I needed endorphins, that was it!!! So with renewed vigor, I took to P90X and the rest is history. I have been so happy with my Beachbody programs, not only because of their effectiveness, but because Beachbody sets you up to succeed. I had a great success coach, and that is what inspired me to become one myself. My goal as a Beachbody coach is to support other people in reaching their fitness goals in whatever way I can – if that just means being a friend, that’s what I give! If that means recommending products & programs to help them, then that’s what I give.”
“As for my personal fitness goals – I am currently on week 2 of ChaLEAN Extreme. I am going to finish this 90 Days and have an awesome body transformation — the before and after pictures are going to be a shocker. 😉 I’m also incorporating a cardio-heavy program (Insanity) in there to increase my stamina so I can get to the point where I am able to run a 1/2 or even a full marathon.”
(Becky and Tony Horton!! So cool!)
Becky, you are superwoman!!! Please share your before and after pics when your next 90 days is up! Peeps, go check out her website at: http://www.azfitbodyandmind.com/. She also has a facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/FitBodyandMind. This girl will get you up and MOVING!
I will leave you with this funny. The mini-me’s gave themselves new nicknames at the zoo yesterday. They are calling themselves “Tootie and Bootie.” They are soooo my kids. The little midget is Tootie and Ginormo Boy is Bootie:
Off to run!
