Workout Journal 2013: 5/27 - 6/2

Thursday 5/30
Tonight I completed my strength training for the first time in a couple of weeks. This workout is such a double edged sword. I sometimes do not want to do such a slow paced workout.....but it makes me feel soooo good and strong. I don't feel beaten up after I do it and for that I love it.

Saturday 6/1
Tonight we pulled out the double stroller and took a long walk as a family. Our neighborhood is great for walking, it has a good combination of flat and hilly areas and my boys love riding in their stroller. It was wonderful to workout and enjoy conversation with my hubbie :)

Sunday 6/2
I completed my strength training again tonight. I bought myself a new post-baby bathing suit today and was feeling motivated to put in some work on my abs :) I am so looking forward to this summer and introducing my boys to lots of water play time.

For a couple of weeks, I have been struggling with writing my workout journal.....partly because I have been bored by it. If I am bored by writing it, I know you must be bored of reading it.


I am taking a temporary hiatus from posting my Workout Journal. THIS DOES NOT MEAN....that I am going to stop working out, quite the contrary - I am just going to spare you all the boring details for the time being. And I will keep posting my Club Dancin' Workout mixes.

When I begin a new workout program (which I am planning to do this FALL), I will pick it up again.

To cap off these past 3 months of journaling here are my before and after shots (I can't believe I am doing this).

This is what 9 months of the Tracy Anderson Post-Pregnancy DVD has done for me :)
