Shut Up and Squat!

I decided to challenge myself and join the bandwagon for the 30 day squat challenge. I've been complaining for a year now that I need to get in shape and back to pre-baby weight but I don't do anything about it! Am still 10 lbs over my normal weight and I can't seem to shake them off. With the boys the weight came off so easy and before no time I was back to my pre-baby weight, but with Dahlia it has been a bit more challenging for me. Maybe it's because am getting older, my metabolism has slowed or maybe I just don't have any good healthy habits since am always on the go. Whatever it is or whatever my excuses may be, now I just need to shut up and squat!

The challenge is: Get your bootie/legs in shape 
(FYI-those are my major problems!)

Here are the easy follow by instructions:

To encourage and really push me to keep this challenge I will be sharing photo updates that's my incentive to keep going, making it public.....To start I've posted a photo of me at 38 weeks pregnant (my heaviest ever! which is photo on the left) and a photo of me right now (that's the photo on right). I've weight the same for a year now! NO loss or gained weight since Dahlia was about 1 1/2 months:

Although I was very hesitant to do this I felt it was something that I have to do because I don't want to look like a quitter to the whole world. Plus I figured it might encourage someone else to also try the challenge too :)

Wish me luck!
