Challenge: To get back to my pre-wedding body (not just pre baby).
Means by which I will accomplish this: P90X Extreme complete body ripping program.

Motivation: I want to look better and feel better. Saying that having a baby is hard on your body is an understatement. Having a baby destroys your body! Don't get me wrong I wouldn't take it back for anything, but it's time to do something about it. I've been talking about this for months and I'm finally doing it. There are lots of work out programs out there that promise in only 5 minutes a day you can have the body you've always wanted! Right...P90X takes a harsher but more honest approach. They tell you this is going to be the hardest thing you've ever put your body through and that you must be very dedicated. But don't you find that the things most worth having are never easy? Well, I'm going for it and I'm determined to get results. By the end of this year you're going to see me on an infomercial with boths legs in one side of my pants! :) K, so it might not be that drastic but I did take some before pictures and believe me if I wasn't motivated before, I most certainly am now! If I'm brave enough, when I'm done with the program I'll post them. I know by posting this I'm putting myself in a tough position. It's like when you tell everyone you're going to quit smoking. Everytime I see someone they'll ask me how it's going and be looking me up and down for results. That's what I want. I need as many people to keep me in line as possible. So bye bye size 10, hello size 26 Rockin Republics.

Good luck with that Sarah! It's super rewarding to look back at your before pictures and see the progress you've made! I'm really happy I decided to spend the money on a personal trainer. Don't give up, even if you can't do anymore squats without crying! :) Oh, and there's no way I'll believe you're a size 10! It wouldn't matter are GORGEOUS!

yeah, agreed. you have such a cute face you could pull off any size, but good for you for setting goal and trying to be healthy. that's awesome. becoming a mom really does mess with your body. i don't think my stomach will ever be the same. i've got all this loose skin that won't go back to normal because i got so stretched out! sick! i wouldn't change it for anything though because i love Max so much, but it's still really kinda sad. oh well he was so worth it.
good luck with your goal!!
