Fit Mom Week Five

Fit Mom Day 30

Last day of 30-day Fit Mom Challenge.
Summary:
Feel way better.
Husband has noticed cut arms & toned legs.
Ass is perkier.
Jeans fit better. No muffin top in any garments currently own.
Fit into skinnier clothes held onto for unknown reason through last fat phase.
Not, however, as tight or toned as would have liked.
Have not been as disciplined as would have liked.
Overall verdict: 70%-ish success.
Plan to continue food journaling (for self, will not bore readers with diet in future) as have found useful tool - easier to avoid handfuls of chocolate or random scoops of kids' food as clearing plates (keeps inexplicably appearing in house) when know have to account for later.
MUST CONTINUE WORKING OUT. Must do better job of it. Must get back to pre-baby hot bod.
But successful month, overall.
