Back in the Saddle Again

Now that it’s been about two weeks, I have one main goal in my mind–to fit back into my pants.  I don’t want to wear maternity pants.  My yoga pants and regular shirts fit okay, but my nice work pants with the non-elastic waists–yeah, they’re kind of a problem.  Even my boobs have gone back to normal (yes, if you give birth at 5 months, you will still get milk in–who knew?)

So I have signed myself up for madison fitness bootcamps on my lunch hour (T and Th) and I went to the free one at Elver Park yesterday.   That’s right, you can spend your Saturday mornings running backwards up a giant hill and doing pull-ups on the kiddie playground set.  The guy who runs them, Dustin Maher, is pretty admirable.  He’s 25, running his own personal training business, and he walks the walk, that’s for sure.  (If you’re interested, you can check him out at and  Anyway, yes I am sore today.  He kicked my ass!  Which is good, because I am really terrible at the self motivation thing.

I’ve done the lunch thing before–in fact one of my coworkers told me he saw me on NBC 15, because they did a spot on Dustin Maher.  So if you saw a clip of an ex-goth girl running up a hill with weights over her head and an upper arm tat, yeah that was me–running away from the camera.

  1. Yay for you! Boot camps are about the worst torture invented. We had one at the on-site gym that I was doing at lunch and OMG I thought I would die. It was amazing that I could teach a cardio class and not get winded, but put me in boot camp and it kicks my butt! I am glad you are finding motivation there especially on a Saturday. Although, you forgot to mention that he is pretty cute too…. 🙂
