tabata1TGIF!  To be completely frank about my fitness regime, it has been pretty non-existent.  I could blame it on the pregnancy but it’s not true.  I’m just plain lazy and full of excuses.  😱  Initially, I thought I would do a gym workout in the mornings to get my butt in shape (literally) but I always came up with excuses… “I didn’t sleep very well”, “I’m tired”, I can “cuddle” with my honey, etc… and let’s not mention after work.
