In our house, we're getting strong, not skinny.

Like 99.9% of women, I've always battled with body image issues, yada yada yada. Pretty sure most of is from growing up where my mom was always on a diet of some sort and fretting about her weight. (sorry, mom, if you're reading this)
Showing off some guns

Knowing this made me realize I don't want Fynn to know I worry about weight or being thin, so I've always tried to talk about being healthy, and strong. I'm not perfect. Drew and I often discuss weight loss or whether our clothes make us look skinny. Fynn has seen me first gain and then lose a lot of weight over the past 2 years, so I want her to see the thought and work that goes into being in shape and having a healthy attitude about exercise.
Fynn picked out our workout today

Lately Fynn has been joining me in some of my workouts, and it's been fun to see her try to do different exercises. Today we rocked some 30 Day Shred a la my bestie Jillian Michaels and Fynn professed afterwards that we were getting super strong together, though I was pretty sweaty which she thought was gross. I'm trying to get us both in the habit of exercising during Bentley's morning nap, that way I can get my workouts in each morning once we're on summer vacation.
Our DVD player is broken, so we rock our workouts on the laptop

And now, my blogging time must come to an end as a certain 3 1/2 year old is upstairs yelling "Mom-EE, Mom-Ma, Mom-EE, Mom-Ma" along with some nonsense song that is sure to wake up her little brother.
