O.k..., so here's the deal. I'm writing this as I enjoy my last big, honkin' plate full of greasy nacho chips along with a soda. Don't they always say, "Nothing tastes as good as being skinny feels." Sometimes I wonder.
This week, I went to my local LA Boxing in Ashburn, Virginia, took a class, and met with the General Manager. I had professional "before" pictures taken, courtesy of Ed Solomon Photography (www.edsolomonphotography.com - check him out, he's great!). I would love to post my "before" picture, but let's just say I'm way too vain for that. It's not pretty ~ it's pretty disgusting, actually. But here I am so you have a face with a name...
Oh, and ignore the hair. I had severe roots and couldn't take it any longer. I'm usually a wanna-be blonde - but decided to go for something different. Let's just say that Eva Longoria Parker's signature color was much more red than I had thought!
Back to the plan. With the help of the LA Boxing staff, I hope to acheive my goal of getting my body back! My goal is to post before and after pictures on my birthday in March... and I'll commit to updating this blog with my progress - good and bad - throughout this time. I'll let you in on my eating plan, workout regimen, struggles, reviews, and inside information of the gym. My son, Christopher, will also be joining me for classes... and I'll fill you in on him later this week... that's a whole different story... Trust me, there's more to come.
Shall I dare begin? Drum roll please...
The LA BOXING Experiment:
In this corner, weighing in at 173, wearing a size 12 (but if she's really honest with herself and doesn't want a severe muffin top, a size 14) is The Knockout Mama. Ding, Ding, Ding.
