Bringing Sexy Back

    Tomorrow morning I embark on a journey. It will involve sweat, hard work, maybe some tears, hopefully some laughs...but most certainly results. Tomorrow morning at 7:30 am marks the beginning of a new stage in my life that I like to call: Bringing Sexy Back. I'm drawing my inspiration, of course, from the well-known Justin Timberlake song of a similar name. Ok, it's the exact same name, and I've been singing it non-stop since I cleverly came up with this idea. Here are the lyrics that are driving my ambition, they're deep and meaningful:

Let me see what you're working with
Go ahead, be gone with it
Look at those hips
Go ahead, be gone with it
You make me smile
Go ahead, be gone with it
Go ahead child
Go ahead, be gone with it
And get your sexy on 

My goal, of course, is to get back in the slammin' shape I was in before I went and got myself pregnant.

this was me last November-ish at a friends wedding

Now, I'm too self conscious to tell you what I weigh currently, but I will tell you that I gained 50 pounds (that's right, fifty) during my pregnancy. A real shocker to my OB who suggested I only gain 32lbs when I had already gained 20 and was only 5 1/2 months in. I didn't binge eat, and I wasn't lazy. I ate healthy and moderately and worked out hard core up until I was put on bedrest. Alas, like a lot of folks told me- I gained exactly what my little baby girl needed me to, and nothing I did was going to stop that. Tomorrow morning the hubby and I are starting a work out program called (dun dun duunnn) INSANITY. It's supposed to be like P90X but even more awesome. Obviously.
   Insanity features 10 workouts that vary in length and focus on different parts of the body and offer different styles of exercise, much like P90X. The program promises you an INSANE body in 60 days. I'm going to do my best. I have no problem eating healthy, so that will be a big help. The only thing I'm worried about is our schedule and making time to complete each day's workout. For the next week and a half I shouldn't have any trouble, but I go back to work full-time next Wednesday and at that point there will probably have to be an adjustment period. It's going to take us some time to get into a schedule for sleeping, nursing, getting ready for work, getting baby to sitters, and the insanity workout on top of all of that. However, I'm one determined lady. You may meet few people who hate being out of shape more than I do. I've been fiending like a crack addicted to workout and waiting very impatiently for my body recover so I could do so. I'm going to weigh myself tomorrow morning and every Monday morning from this point forward for the next 60 days as to accurately document my progress and the path to bringing sexy back. I'll check in and let y'all know how much I'm losing, maybe post some pictures and "fun" experiences- and certainly let you know how I'm liking the workout! Wish me luck! Layne
