Bow Chicka Bow Bow!

The doctor gave me the go-ahead (with a wink).

I have been shopping for the “appropriate” outfits.

All systems are revved-up and ready for action.

I have been stretching.

Ryan is incredibly excited.


Are you thinking what I think you are thinking? You would. Get your mind out of the gutter.

I’m talking about exercise.

After my nine month hiatus from the gym, I was worried I’d have a rough time getting started again.

Oh contraire!

After one play date with the elliptical trainer my body was coated in a rainbowy, frothy lather of endorphins! Wahoo! I love getting that heart rate up!

The Pulmonary Edema Diet gave me a good jump start but there is still work to be done. And I am glad! I love setting and accomplishing goals.

I am doing pilates. I am getting my cardio in at least four times a week. I am pumping iron. And while I don’t believe in dieting, I am definitely watching my portions.

The only thing standing in my way is Doug’s potty training treats.
Can’t resist… So delicious.

And when I reach my goal I will be rewarding myself. Ryan is going to take me on a secluded romantic weekend getaway and I will be sporting one of these by the pool.

Are you scandalized?

Don’t be. I probably won’t be wearing it for long.

Again… the gutter.

Oh my Bethany, you are hillarious. I love reading your blog. Maybe someday you will move to UT and I can meet you in person. Not that blogworld isn't great! Yes, my mind was in the gutter. But I believe a slight perversion of the mind is healthy. :) Beautiful girl btw!

Yeah! I too share a love of those endorphines! Are you striving for the high school weight again? Good luck! Bikini season is coming.

That's awesome! You look great! My mom said that you are back into all of your old clothes too. Good for you! I can't wait! It's exciting to see those pounds shed off after feelling like a beached whale for so long! I bought a scale so that I can keep track of my progress. I have lost 28 pounds since Zander was been born. I still have 17 more to lose, but it is nice to see some the scale go down each day. When you move here we will have to be work out buddies!

Oh, you're awesome. And funny. And inspiring. I want to be like you when I grow up.

i am indeed jealous! all i can do is gain weight at this point. way to go on being so motivated!! i love how you write!! all those hours in the comms department did you good - i on the other hand have lost all my writing talent, if there was any to begin with (see, i'm ending in a prep! what is wrong with me?)

Audrey said...

I want my husband to take me on a secluded weekend!!! I weigh less than I have since high school and it's getting me nothing around here. Although I would never sport a bikini, don't have one of "those" bodies. I would feel naked!!!

SO FUNNY! I am so proud of you! You will do great! I loved that endorphine rush too! And yes Bytheway, I totally think Doug and Emma should get married! :)
