Jessica Simpson body by New Years…?? We’ll see!

So I’m well aware I need a healthy, fit body for farm life. And I will admit.. I have gained 20 pounds in the last year and a half since I quit smoking. Yeah, I know. Cliche excuse. Whatever the case, it’s time to shape up. Exercise is part of any and every happy life I read or know about. And at the verge of 29.. 20 extra pounds does not make for a happy camper or a full closet because nothing fits. So, what do do? Repin Jessica Simpson’s Daisy Duke workout. Brilliant! I wanna look just like that 🙂Image After you see this picture, who doesn’t want to look like that? Michael definitely approves 😉 I’m on week 2 doing the workout 4 days a week vs. her 5 days. It is getting easier. The first week, I didn’t push myself because I didn’t want to get overwhelmed by a hard workout and just quit. I took breaks between sets of everything it seemed! I don’t have a treadmill, but I do have a bike that I love riding. I alternate this in for treadmill time. If it’s too cold, I do jumping jacks. I had to YouTube a couple of the exercises to see not only how, but how at home with two 5 lb dumbells.

This week, I’ve been excited everyday to do the workout, the complete workout I might add 🙂 And I can feel it, oh man! I think that’s why I’m so excited. Whether or not I end up looking like Jess or not (I don’t ever think I’ll be that airbrushed tan) I’m definitely on my way to a better body, my old wardrobe and a big puff to my self esteem. I just got to keep it up. One day at a time, I’ll get there
