MMM-link up

I have actually been doing really well this last two weeks. 
Exercising is becoming somewhat of a routine again.

Its freakin cold here so working out outside is almost impossible. 
I am so not the awesome runner who runs no matter what the weather is. 

...but my Jullian Michaels videos are getting a lot of use. 
 I am also working out with a friend who lives two doors down!! 
Makes it so much easier to work out when you have someone to motivate you.

On a plus side I am fitting back in my pre-pregnancy fat pants. 
about 10 more lbs. to shed and I should be back in my regular jeans. 
Ember is almost 3 months...I cant use the I just had a baby excuse much longer. 

I have also been drinking a lot of water and been cutting back on the diet coke!
