Operation Get Hot

Guess who has a birthday coming up? This old hag. And by coming up, I mean I am just two and a half months away from turning 29. That is correct. I am about to embark on my last year in my roaring twenties. I cannot believe I just typed that. I swear it was just yesterday I was getting depressed over turning 22. WHERE DID THE LAST SEVEN YEARS GO? It disturbs me greatly how quickly time passes.

Cousin, bro and I on my 22nd Birthday/College Graduation. Mama is not that size anymore. Can we say goal weight?

Do you want to know what is more disturbing? My cellulite. My arm jiggle. My stomach rolls. I am not even exaggerating. I am the largest I have ever been in my life. No, you are not getting a photo. Just use your imagination.
So with a big birthday on the horizon, I thought now is the perfect time to get super serious about ¨operation get hot.¨
Fat + birthdays = deep, dark depression.
You may have noticed I do not have the amount of free time I used to (Instagram is the new blog, OK?). I am running out the door every single morning to get to work at a decent hour. I do not get home until 7PM or later depending on what errands I have. So I just have to make time.
Last week I had no lunch, didn't get home from work until 8PM and allllllll I had my sights set on was plopping my fat ass on the couch and pressing play on that remote. My head said gym but my heart said Real Housewives. Something in me snapped and you know what I did? I worked out anyway. I put on 4 shades of pink, grabbed a water bottle and I. just. did. it. And you know what else? I felt a hell of a lot better after that work-out.

Guess what else happened after I just did it? I worked out 5 times last week. I'm not saying one week made me hot, but you have to start somewhere. I'm sick of wishing for it. I have to work for it and time is ticking. One only hopes my arm will one day get back to my 24th birthday arm:
