Operation Snap Back™ Link Up: My Workout Playlist & Progress Report

Next week my #grandfinalebaby will be four months old. Can't believe it. Time is flying.

I finally feel ready to start getting serious about getting back in shape. Getting to the gym and getting any type of exercise in has been a challenge but I have been eating well to compensate for it. Since eating well is half the battle I'm giving myself credit for that.

My water intake has been pretty good. I drink at least 70 ounces a day. I'd like to get closer to 100 ounces but I'll take that 70 for now. I limit myself to one soda a day first thing in the morning.

Nothing wakes me up better than an ice cold Dr. Pepper.

For the first week of the Operation Snap Back™I thought I'd start by sharing my playlist for workouts. Music is such a big part of my life and when I'm working out I have to have my music blasting. Here's what's in my Operation Snap Back Playlist at the moment...

My fitness goals are to tone up. I don't have a goal weight in mind I just want to comfortably fit in all my clothes. We don't have a scale in our house. I don't want to be obsessed with a number so I base everything off of how I feel and look. If I feel I look good then I consider that success.

Here I am today...

Now head over to Off the Potomac and see Fatima's Operation Snap Back™progress. She's the creator of the online community that motivates women to strive to meet their fitness goals.

  1. I am still obsessed with the numbers for now but you look great. The fact that you are outside with a tank has me ready for Summer! And you have the perfect sneakers for the shirt. :-) Just so you know I will be adding your playlist you our directory in OSB! lol Happy 4 months postpartum!

    1. Thank you! It's stays pretty warm here for the most part. Those sneakers are older than Savannah and my husband wants me to throw them away because they stink, LOL! I do everything in those sneakers but I guess it might be time to get something else.

  2. You look AWESOME. I am trying to get my water intake up, too. I was doing well, now I kinda stare at my bottle. Thanks for the encouragement!


Thank you for taking the time to chat with me!
