Alright ladies, I will not keep you in suspense any longer. The winner of the handy dandy Sportline Step and Distance Pedometer is . . .
Wait for it . . .

Now, on with the show. This is week 4 (for me) of Extreme Makeover: Me Edition, courtesy of Amber. Amber started this journey to help us ladies get and stay motivated in becoming fit and healthy. Go check out her blog, and join us, why don'tcha?
I wish I could say that last week was the week that motivation struck. The week that I'd had enough, and really put my body to work with a brand new, super intense workout routine. Sadly, that was not the case. In reality, I went to my mom's birthday dinner at one of the yummiest restaurants ever (though I didn't do too horribly, a healthy choice dinner option and a sliver of cake), took the girls to the tulip festival where I had some fries and kettle corn, had lunch at the Olive Garden after family photos, and have been utterly exhausted due to an overly crabby baby who just can't seem to get settled into a sleeping groove.
On the positive side, I had been avoiding some of my pre-pregnancy clothes like the plague, and I was pleasantly surprised to find that almost everything fits pretty well these days. I may have a couple pairs of capris that are a tad snug, but the in-between-pants that I had bought to wear until I lost the weight are now too BIG, yay! Also, I'm still practicing some self-control in regard to food, which is a big step for me.
So, now, Amber's Question of the Week: Share some of the music that you work out to. What helps you rock it!? What gets your blood pumpin?
80's/90's Dance Music (think Blackbox, techno)
Disturbia-Rihanna (me too, Amber!)
Anything Black Eyed Peas
Milkshake - Kelis (do not laugh)
Missy Elliott (I know, I know, not suitable for little ears)
Good grief, this list is almost embarassing ;) In defense, they are "clean" versions. Yep, time to stop trying to explain it.
And now, for the results: boy, it just keeps getting worse each week, doesn't it? I did lose, but just barely. A little over half a pound. Okay, this time, I mean it. More exercise, more exercise, more exercise. More water (only water?). Even a little more self-control regarding food.
Join in on the fun. Take a look at what other moms are doing to get healthier over at Amber's and sign up yourself, why don'tcha!
Until next week!
