Congrats to our winner Jane!
September 2012 I finally decided it was time. Maybe it was the stubborn ever increasing muffin top that pushed me over the edge, or the fact that my daughter asked me if I wanted to start shopping at Lane Bryant (not that there’s anything wrong with that) but I realized I just didn’t feel good. And it was NEVERÂ about a goal weight for me– it’s about how I felt in clothes- it was about wanting to wear clothes and be able to tuck in my shirt. It was about not dreading THE THOUGHT OF wearing a bathing suit. It was about feeling lighter which translates into ultimately feeling better.
And I am VERY proud to say that 16 months later I have lost a whopping 25 pounds. And I NEVER WANT t to give up on my body again. I don’t ever want to be complacent about that ever increasing jeans size, or getting to a point where I only feel comfortable in stretch pants. I want to take back ownership over how I feel, and I know the keys to all of that are changing my diet and just moving.
Luckily I’ve got the moving part down. And yes it feels good, really good. Sure I HATE getting off a warm couch and onto an elliptical(is there ANYONE who doesn’t?!) but as long as it keeps my muffin top at bay I’m willing to take as many as I need to for the team.
But of course on those days where I JUST don’t feel like hightailing it to the gym– I am TOTALLY ready to get my workout on at home- thanks toÂ Sportline, wide selection of new home fitness productsÂ that can help both ME and you to achieve the New You that you desire for 2013.

Weighted Resistance Ball. Weight lifting, stretching and abdomen training using the Weighted Resistance Ball is one of the most affordable, portable and versatile fitness tools on the market today. Plus, itâ€™s small enough to be conveniently stored. Because itâ€™s weighted with sand and covered with thick rubber, it is highly durable and easy to grip. It comes with an easy-to-fill air pump and a measuring tape so you know when itâ€™s fully inflated and ready to use for any total-body tone-up. In addition to upper body training the Weighted Resistance Ball can be used for overall core training, and more specifically, to tone abdominal muscles, hips, waistline and lower back. Using a weighted ball encourages proper posture and alignment. Since this ball is an unstable source of support, it strengthens and develops your belly, back and waistline muscles literally any time you use it. MSRP $29.99
