I don't think he's wearing a wetsuit...some really tight cute thing though

Then never ran once in Playa. (Still won the Tequila Relay ). So its time to start training. Just hard to get motivated. The first month is the hardest. Ok its 70 degrees Sam, (dog) and I are off for a run.
I find this to be the hardest part as well...and to think I used to teach aerobics 6 days a week...before baby...

Man, you guys are motivating me to give the old knees a workout and see what I can do. The biking and swimming thing would be easy for me, but the running would be the hardest part.


Jay and Danni,

You go girl!! As long as you have the motivation your heading in the right direction. There are tons or programs out there, but none are any good without the mojo!!

Y'all close your eyes as I walk by, and I will feel just fine....
Just like everything else in this life...no matter how good you look, there is always someone else look better...I gave up long time ago.
I'm under this philosophy that as long as I don't eat a lot, I don't have to "pay" later by excercising. That way I save some time, save some energy, and save money too...

I think you can register as a team...perhaps you could find someone to do the run.

Thanks for the info, that would be great!! Time to check into it. Now, if they had and uphill mountain bike climb, downhill snowboarding race, rollerblading to the finish line kinda thing I know I'd sign up for that!!

I can't wait until after this baby is born and I can really get back into working out. I am still doing yoga, cardio and weights right now. But I will be really hitting the gym in the fall. I can't wait to get back to taekwondo and I am thinking about getting a personal trainer and really working on my physique. I have always been strong. But I am hoping to be more sculpted after I am finished having children.

What plans and behaviors have you set in place?? Are you working out now and eating sensibly? Are you at your ideal weight and body fat percentage?? How many pounds would you like to drop and at what BF % are you looking to attain??
I am 136 pounds at 5'5"....I would like to drop ten pounds. The ever-so-sticky last ten pounds. They really are the toughest!
I do work out regularly, along with my husband, but we have been a little lax the past 3-4 months, doing home renos, and so we have to get back into a routine. I can feel my normally toned muscles melting away and getting 'soft'.
We were gym-goers but when we started the renos, we quit the gym, knowing we wouldn't have time- in the next couple weeks we are going to set up a home gym, with 2 bikes, 1 magnetic recumbent, a universal gym, free weights and a separate bench. We do a combo of cardio with mostly free weights exericses- I use 15s and 20s, mainly. Hubby a lot heavier- although he only weighs 155!
Luckily it is spring and we have been doing a lot of walking and biking.
In addition I will try to eat smaller portions, cut out most sugary foods and junk foods, and just move more in general.

Started back to the gym in March after peep fest.

3 days a week on an elliptical trainer (I got a really good one at home so this part is easy) for 45 -60 mintues
3 days with weights...(I have not been so good about this at all, even though I know it is what makes everything else fall in line)

A foot /knee injury knocked me out of commission a few years ago and things have never been the same !!
Need to cut back on all the drinking to !!!

Great plan!! I too have a very nice home gym set up with Full rack, cardio maching, and Intell dumbells - the interchangeable ones - they rock!! I'll do cardio first thing in the am before I eat anything and then later in the afternoon or evening hit the weights. Throw in some high protein meals with lots of veggies and fruits. Problem is when my teenage daughter says "Dad, can we go to Dairy Queen tonight" , being the awesome Dad I am I can't say no!!

I wish I was Superwoman LOL. Thanks for your reply. I really find that working out while pregnant keeps me feeling good not just physically but mentally. And I enjoy taekwondo so much that when I am forced to take a break, it actually helps me to enjoy it more when I get back.

I am soooo disappointed! I saw this thread and thought someone was going to give me some ideas on how to get back into my bikini!
I am 42, 5'6'. Lost 15 pounds over the winter so I am down to 135 which I haven't been since I was 20. I have been trying to tighten up my 40 year old stomach but I am determined to get into a two piece and I don't mean a tankini.
First I am spending a little time at the tanning salon, though
