fitness, kettleworx, mamavation, mom, mommy, weightloss


50 pounds!!! That’s what I gained during my pregnancy. As someone who was really into sports and fitness it was a disheartning, so after I had the baby I was determined to get back to my pre-baby weight. I gave myself a a year. I figured it took almost a year for me to gain the weight, so a year was a good goal to get it off.
But, it was a lot harder than I thought it would be. As I started my weightloss project in earnest I realized I couldn’t do all the things I I’d before. Pre baby all my hobbies were sports related. I played footbal. I played soccer. I taught aerobics part time. Now I was a new mom with dayjob and a stand up comedy career to work on. When was I going to find time to go to the gym?

That’s when I began using home workout DVD’s. I tried a bunch and a lot of them sucked, but two in particular were my favorites. First I fell in love with Turbo Jam. The instructor Chalene Johnson became my video best friend while I jammed away those pounds. After I lost the majority of the weight my focused changed so my new DVD favorite is Kettleworx. So as I am proud to say they put me in the latest Kettleworx Informercial. I’ve posted that clip along with one of my comedy clips as a little “before and after.” [I’m about 30 seconds in :)]

After looking at both videos I’m glad that I’m still funny but a lot less fat.

My freinds over at Kettleworx are giving a starter set to give away to one of you lucky folks.

  1. Pretty sure we can all relate to that story! Thanks for sharing it. I prefer to work out at home as well so I don't have to spend more time away from the kiddo with driving, etc. Thanks for being such a great role model!

  2. I saw your stand up…love the cabinetry. My father was actually a very skilled cabinet maker and my mother's entire house was custom. Almost every piece of furniture. I guest you can say he LOVED her. lolOh, and I don't have a Kettle bell…I might be the last person to get one.

  3. Awesome job on loosing the pounds. Keep it up! I have to try the kettle bell, it actually looks a lot of fun as long as it doesn't slip out of my hands and knock something over. Ty for sharing.

  4. I subscribed to your Google feed. You look amazing, btw! I would love this because anything that I can do at home is a plus. I'm at a point where I need to start off slow, so 20 min is perfect!
