#MBBChallenge Day 8: It’s Not the SIZE of Your Hips, It’s How You USE Them

 2014 may have been the year of the booty, but  Shakira’s 2006 classic still speaks to me.

Day #8: Monday, Jan. 19, 2015

Yes, like Shakira says, “My hips don’t lie.” Neither does my waist or my love handles. Or the scale. Well maybe Max’s scale. My scale says I lost 4 pounds but Max’s has not budged. That’s okay.

I am in the beginning of week 2 and still have not cheated on my diet OR had wine!  I got in  3 workouts last week and hope to amp that up to 4 this week. Juggling a sick child, a busy teen,work and household chores can keep a gal very busy but I know if I don’t stick to this plan this time I won’t ever do it.

You see, I never had to think about what I ate and never worked out. I hate working out! I was a teen mom before MTV made it cool and I was in a bikini within a weeks after having my son. Fast forward six years to son #2 and it was pretty much the same. Bikini bod was there without much effort. Four years later when I hit the big 3-0 it was not as easy. Over the last 14 years I have gained about 4 pounds per year. This is not good.

I have tried diet after diet and I am finding the only thing that works is…. you guessed it… diet and exercise! If you hate to workout like me, you may find boot camp fun. The gym I go to, Max’s Best Bootcamp, is a very supportive environment and the trainers and members keep pushing you to complete your sets. It’s like you have your own set of cheerleaders rooting for you.

So even though Max’s scale might be lying, or I am lying to myself, I will just keep on truckin’.
