The exercise program Mamavation sent was fantastic. I could do this at home. It didn't take a whole lot of time. I could do this on my schedule and modify the intensity of each exercise as needed. There were even YouTube videos to follow to make sure I was doing the exercise correctly.
The exercises were very straightforward and easy to follow. Even though they were easy... Holy Cow... they were effective.
Boston Children's Hospital shopping list they sent I have changed my diet to a low-glycemic diet.
My entire family is now eating cabbage salad and my son has been helping me with meals which included an egg white omelette with spinach that was actually yummy.
Today is the beginning of week two and I am still as enthusiastic but, yeah, my entire body is feeling it.
I am super grateful to the team cheering me on from Mamavation and Omron Fitness because I really really really needed this start to not only my New Year but my new life. The program they have laid out for us is extremely sustainable and I am looking forward to carrying on even after the challenge is over.

* Yes - this is a before picture. This is what I would typically be seen in running to Walmart. I don't wear pajamas but I do wear yoga pants which might as well be the same thing. Those who know me know I love wearing my turtlenecks and am typically in layers even in the summer. So, we'll see what happens in a couple more weeks but for now what you see is what you get.
