Bring it on.

Today marks round two of serious butt kicking, sweat dripping, muscle building workouts for me.  My break is over and it's time I get moving again.
Because before I know it, I'll be back at work and I won't have lost any weight and I'll be swearing at myself for having wasted perfect time.  Time that would normally be spent in the evenings prepping lessons on Napoleon or correcting essays or researching is now spent getting in shape.
I've been working on this with my sidekick supersister since July, having excitedly jumped back on the Zumba wagon as soon as my post-baby body would let me.  Then in October I kicked it up a notch with Jillian Michaels' 30 day challenge.  Then it was Christmas and I got sick and life happened.
You know what that's like.  I did manage to lose 10 lbs in those 2 months that I was seriously working out and now I'm ready to do it again.
Jillian Michaels', here I come.  What I like about her workout is that it's a quick 20 mins, it makes me feel strong and I see immediate results.  I dislike looking at her.  She scares me.
I'm going to alter the schedule a bit, throwing in 3 or 4 days of cardio, alternating between Zumba and a 5-8 km run.
Hopefully I'll see results.
Hopefully I'll fit my motivational William Rast jeans.
Hopefully I'll have to buy a whole new teaching wardrobe for when I get back to work in 220 days.
But who's counting anyway.


  1. I SO can't wait to try and lose weight after this baby. SO hard to see those preggo numbers keep rising :( Good for you, you've done a great job already and there's no doubt that by the time you get back to work you'll feel as smokin' as you set out be :)

  2. Jillian hurt me today that big meanie. It is going to be a long 30 days.

    You are always beautiful ma soeur, but heres to working out and getting healthy for us and for our children!


  3. Great work Deena!! My sister and I are also working out. We have just begun a weight training regimen, and possibly training for a figure competition. Will see if I am devoted enough for that!

    Cheers to being fit for Life!
