On to the 30×30 update. Last week was not a good one. I totally slacked off. Callum was sick, and I wasn’t feeling too hot either. I exercise most days but  there were a few days when I could only do half of it. I was just so tired.

My diet also suffered due to lack of will power. When I don’t feel well all I want is junk food, specifically Big Macs.

So because of this I didn’t make any progress in week two. The good news is I didn’t gain any weight.

This week will be better. I will get back on track and start hitting the gym again.

I do feel that because of all the squats my butt is getting bigger. Not exactly what I wanted. I already have a Kardashian thing going on back there that I was trying to get rid of. I am going to add 30 minutes on the treadmill or elliptical every day to try and balance things out.  It’s not that I mind having some booty, I just don’t want to keep adding to it. I like when my pants fit and I don’t feel like I’m wearing Sofie’s jeans.  I know I will never have a small butt. I am okay with this. I know I need to appreciate my body for what it is. This body gave me two beautiful kids and allows me to walk, run and dance with them.
