The new-year-new-me cliché

Every year, I keep telling myself on new year’s day – “I will exercise more. I will eat better.”

The eating-better part is doable, and a must, since I’m still nursing our baby.

The exercise-more part is the challenging one. But I promised myself that this year will be the year when I FINALLY go through with my resolution.

So meet my workout buddy – The Fit Girl’s Guide: The 28 Day Jumpstart.

The ebook is available on their website at www.fitgirls.com. It has meal plans and workout plans. They are easy to follow, and the ebook itself is not intimidating. It’s a fun read, actually!

I haven’t followed any of the meal plans. The meal plans are set up so that a fit girl consumes a specific amount of calories in a day. So I’m not sure about following the meal plans while I’m nursing. The recipes, though, look delectable. I even bought the Fit Girls Cook ebook filled with recipes that are not in the other ebooks. The “Stupid Easy Mac & Cheese” sounds yummy AND easy to prepare. Haha!

I bought The 28 Day Jumpstart ebook back in October 2015, but was too lazy to jumpstart my exercise routine. I finally jumped in on January 4th. So far, I noticed that my posture is better. And, mentally, it feels great to have those 30-40 minutes for myself. Plus, there’s a HUGE #fitgirls and #fitsisters community over at Instagram. They’re a fun bunch and virtually boosts everyone’s confidence to keep going.

The first week of the 28-day jumpstart challenge is a struggle. I’ve never been this out of shape! With my #fitsisters behind me (virtually), this will be an exciting journey to becoming a fit and strong mom.

“Rest if you must, but don’t quit!”
