My baby is 13 weeks old and I’m still FAT!

Don’t get it twisted; the title of this blog is “Momma So Fine” for a reason. I am still FINE … with my clothes on. However, I want to look good naked.

Of course there are only a few people who get to see me naked or partially naked: my husband, gynecologist, primary care physician, and me. The only ones that matter: my husband and … ME!

I want to get out of the shower and not be ashamed to look at myself. I don’t want a dunlap tummy, thunder thighs, or arm flaps that wave back. I want a long, lean, muscle toned body.

The up and downside of all of this: I am married to a collegiate level, strength and conditioning coach. Sorry, he is the Head Strength and Conditioning Coach at a Division I school and he is fine; too fine.

I bet most women would love to be married to someone who can really help them shed those extra pounds. For me, it’s a blessing and a curse.

A Blessing
The man knows what he is doing. I see physical results in as little as 3 – 4 workout sessions.

A Curse
The man knows what he is doing. I see physical results in as little as 3 – 4 workout sessions.

I know. I wrote the same thing for both but it is a double edged sword. In order to see results that soon you must eat properly and be physically and mentally prepared. You must be willing to push yourself to beat your personal best each time you workout. If you did 100 crunches yesterday; do 125 today. He trains champions.

I am just now at the point where I am mentally and physically prepared to deal with him training me.

Mentally, I am thinking like a champion; physically, I have a prescription for some pretty strong birth control. ; )

Hey, I usually end up pregnant by session 24.

Now, I can honestly say: I am ready.
