Bunny - I do full body workouts each of my sessions. I rely on my personal trainer to put together my workouts. I've started doing 1 of the workouts on the stability ball with a combo of strength and core. It's a fun workout. If you don't have access to a trainer there are some great website resources and some fabulous support in the exercise forum here. Good Luck...You can do it!!!

BH3 - I actually just dove into 7 days a week. I didn't do a lot at first. Even if I got to the gym for 15 minutes it was better than nothing! I just pushed myself. I was totally committed and I knew that's what I needed to do. I juggled my schedule and just made it work! In the first 10 months I only took 1-2 days off from the gym. Lately I've started giving myself one day off, but I do make sure to keep active even on that day. I have 2 little boys that keep me running. Now on my strength days I typically lift for 60 min and do 20 min cardio. On cardio days I do about 45 min cardio and some extra ab work. I always finish up with 10-15 min of stretching.

I wish I could reply to everyone of you individually. You have no idea how much you all keep me going! I look forward to continuing to share my journey and can't wait to hear about all your successes!!!

You look like the younger, cuter sister of your former self! You are so terrific for taking care of yourself to be there for your boys a lot longer. I look forward to reading your blog.
