So along with so many other fine blogging ladies, I’ve jumped the joywagon of shred. I know it’s the 2nd (I’m a little late on this, but I worked out yesterday (strength training) and today (running), so starting on the third day I won’t be too behind, right?
No, I’m not overweight. But I’m not strong, either. And I want to be strong. I want to feel like I can make it across the parking lot with Carter’s car seat in tow without feeling dead by the time I get into the grocery store. I want to reclaim feeling like my body is my own — I’m plagued with constant newsflashes from my postpartum bod. Hair loss in handfuls? Check. First-time freckles in the sun? Check. Hormonal acne? Gotcha. So, here goes relearning myself. And I’ve always found that exercising is one great way to do that.

Eat a salad every day
Strength train (in addition to video) twice

Do not eat all of the cupcakes I bake, even if there is just one left, and even if it looks lonely.
