Um, hello? Do I still have an ass back there?

So, the day I have dreaded each year since having Emma arrived yesterday. I was shopping for a swimsuit because we have a vacation coming up. We had planned on having a mini vacation in Memphis because Emma loves loves loves the zoo, and we may still do that but now I'm trying to talk Jeremy into coming to Annapolis with me in June for a railroad conference once I checked out the super cheap flights on Southwest. Cha-Ching! Score! In either case, a bathing suit is a must because we always stay at a hotel with a pool because Emma loves to swim. So I found a bathingsuit at Target but then immediately went over to the fitness aisle afterwards. I was looking through the videos when I came across this little beauty and I remembered Brittany mentioning Jillian Michaels was kicking her ass and she loved it.
I had big plans to join the gym again but everyone with kids knows you have to prioritize and right now the gym is pretty low on my list thanks to medical bills, etc. So, I took this home and tried it out. She totally kicked my ass! None of the moves she forced me to do were anything out of the ordinary but man did I learn quickly how bad out of shape I am. I felt like an 80 year old woman groaning my way out of bed this morning. I highly recommend it to anyone searching for a good workout video. You don't have to buy Billy Bands (Billy Blanks Bootcamp Tae-Bo) or any of that other crap. Just you and the tv (and a defibrilator if you're in pitiful shape like me).
So, well see how it goes. I hurt so bad that I've been getting flashbacks all day to high school and the first week or so back in athletics after summer or maxing out on weights. You know, when it was agony getting in and out of your seat in class or trying to walk up those dang stairs from the commons? Yeah. I'll definitely think twice about putting another chocolate bunny in my mouth . . .

Honey, the first week I did it, I couldn't put my BRA ON the next day! She's a bitch--but she's goooood.
