This stands for OUT.OF.SHAPE-which is what I am right now. My friend, Mare, and I have been walking 4 miles a day almost every week since early September. This has definitely helped to get the baby weight off, which I am thankful for, but as swimsuit season is fast approaching I am feeling that I really need to "tone" things up before I try and sport the post pregnancy bikini(aaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhh). So, yesterday I had the brilliant idea that we should do lunges up to our cars at the end of our walk. It was a pretty good distance-up hill I might add- and I think we probably ended up doing about 50 walking lunges. Well needless to say my legs are SO SORE today! I feel so out of shape. I used to work out for hours at a time and be fine the next day! Now all it takes is 5 minutes of lunges and I feel like I am 85 years old! This is definitely motivation to start lifting weights again!

I am thinking that my first plan of action will be using this in my living room while little bit is napping or maybe watching a Baby Einstein because part of my problem is finding time to make it to the gym. I am not about to leave EG at the nursery there yet and sometimes it is more of a hassle to coordinate child care than to just stay home!

So I will definitely continue walking and just add this into my routine a couple times a week! I will let you know how it goes! (Maybe a before and after picture will surface on here-but probably not!:))

I have a lot of hard work ahead of me....but having this little girl is SO worth any amount of exercising that I may have to do to get back into shape!
