You know it’s bad when you look in the mirror and you say, “Yeah, baby got back!’  All the teen guys like to stare.  Trust me, there’s nothing to look at.  Even if there was, you ain’t tappin’ this.

I need to maintain my hot body so I can blog to you in my sexy negligee, right?  I mean, no one wants to see me gain 100 pounds and be posting in my sexy mu-mu, right?  It takes work to look this good, though.  You think I was born this way?  Ok, sure, I was.  But, now I need to maintain this.  Would be a shame to let it go to pot.

A friend told me today about a great website called SparkPeople.  Grabbing my cyberboard, I surfed the waves and found myself checking this place out.  It’s a great site for helping people to become healthier.  From tracking your foods and excercise to working towards weight goals, this site has it all.  Even has ideas for food that seem reasonable!  Excellent!

I’m a fairly healthy person.  I love healthier foods.  I like being active, though sometimes it is hard to keep a personal work out routine going steady.  Especially as a homeschooling mother of two.  Oh, I do plenty, don’t get me wrong.  But it’s not necessarily with the plan as “excercise”.  You know?

However, I think we could all use some work, and this is one of my areas.  I want to be healthier.  And I am carrying some extra weight.  After so much bedrest and steroids and a nasty c/s with my last baby… I could definitely use some work.  Unfortunately there’s not a whole lot I can do, because part of the problem is my hip bones moved and never fixed themselves post-pregnancy.  I don’t think I can do anything about the bones.  But, maybe I could tone and tighten and help a little.

I’d love to see my upper arms tone some as well.  I’ve definitely got Mommy Arms.  You know.  Mommy Arms!  After spending so many years hefting kids and junk and all the things involved with little kids, my upper arms are quite large.  Woot!  I finally have some upper body strength!  I know some of it is muscle, I can definitely lift more now than I ever could.  However, it makes it hard to find shirts with short sleeves that look nice!!!

So here I am, working towards improving myself.  Want to join me?  I’ve made myself a goal.  I would like to lose 25 pounds by December.  I’ve tried all kinds of ways to improve my weight, but nothing seems to work.  Perhaps this will motivate me more?  And maybe I can see progress.  I hope.

Over at Sparkpeople, I’m LadyOzma.  Did you seriously think it would be ANYTHING else?  Hey, maybe I can have another hit on google… Seriously, if you are there, look me up.  I’ve only just begun.

Here’s to a healthy and happy ’07 to everyone.  May you all become as hot as me!  (And may I become as hot as I claim to be!)
