Meet my new office chair.
I’m hoping it gives me Brooke Burke abs (I just realized she is only two years younger than me…wow) or at least makes me a little more confident when I have to wear a bathing suit in public, which will happen at some point this year. My girls love to swim and we’re going to beautiful Jekyll Island, Georgia, this summer. Spring break is also in 8 weeks and although we just have a staycation planned I think 8 weeks is a good, realistic, goal for focusing on fitness.
So, over the next 8 weeks I’m trying to snack well, drink less wine (sob), get at least 40 minutes of exercise 4 days a week, drink more water, and watch my portions. I listened to a radio interview with Snooki last week (do not judge!) and she was complaining about her wellness regime to Ryan Seacrest. If Snooki can give up her Long Islands, then I can give up my wine. BUT NOT ON THE WEEKENDS or I might get all Jersey Shore crazy or sumpin’.
I have two very active little girls who have more energy in their pinkie toes than I do in my entire body so I need to boost my metabolism and if it takes an obnoxious green ball to get me going then so be it.
Do you have suggestions for good 20 to 30-minute workout DVDs? That’s about all I can handle. I’m also curious about Zumba for the Wii. Love it, hate it? I have exercise ADD so it’s got to be fun to keep me interested!
