Looking at my last blog post, I'm sure I've frightened a few of you Dear Readers away. Crazy times, crazy parties, lots of booze. Rockstar status baby. Oh yeah.
Yeah right, I wish.
Those were the highlights of my year. The few times (*note: once a month or every few months) that we actually went out with ACTUAL people!!! I'm sure that many of you can relate to moving to a foreign country... and well, finding like-minded people can be a bit difficult. And when you're fully tattooed in a conservative country... it is not an easy feat! I've spent these last two years kinda being depressed about it and this year, I'm DONE. I've been so worried about what has been going on around me... I haven't done anything to BENEFIT me.
Remember last year, before I turned the big 3-0, that I swore to lose the weight and wear a bathing suit? Yeah... while the dirty thirty was an AMAZING trip that I will never ever ever forget... I hardly took off the pounds.
So that's it. I'm done. 2011 will be a turn around year, whether it kills me or not.
And damn it. It just might.
Hubby is off in Milan this week. He's off tattooing with some really amazing artists in Italia... and I'm home with the kids. Bummed, you might say?
Not at all. Without little hubby here, I got the opportunity to get started on my NEW, actually, I've had it for a year. :S Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred dvd.
And this CRAZY lady has been kicking my ass. After the first day, I just about gave up. It's ONLY a 20 minute workout... and I nearly fell over even after doing the WEENIE versions!!! I might have even skipped some of the cheater version push ups and the jumprope! I might have well been on the Biggest Loser!!!
I began last Wednesday....and so while it's ONLY been 4 days.... Level 1 has become ACTUALLY tolerable. Although I've heard LvL 2 is INSANE, I'm soooo gung-ho to finish this DVD. The only thing standing in my way, I will admit, is hubby. When he comes back, I don't know if I'll be comfortable sweating profusely, bouncing around like an 80's workout video, nearly crying on the floor, in front of the man I want to see me as SEXY. HA! So, if I quit, you know why.
Nevertheless, I took my measurements and slightly embarrassed, here they are:
Hips (here's the big one): 42!
So there you go. Now you know all my intimate secrets. What's my weight? I"m not sure. My scale is defective. But oddly, after doing this exercise the last week and eating healthier, it's gone UP 3 pounds. I'm confused, but I'm not gonna let that hold me down.
Full Speed Ahead!!!!
or at least till hubby gets back!

- I've been living in Mexico now for about a two years with my hubby and 2 kids. Not exactly by choice, but we're here nonetheless. Luckily, I live with quite a few of the accomodations that i was used to in the states. In spite of those convienences, we also have a water tank with asbestos, outdated electricity, massive amounts of dust, caterpillars that burn your skin, and thousands of windshield washers on every street corner. My kiddos and I are learning to speak spanish and adjust to life away from our family and friends in the States.
