Just Sweat Dream Team - Day 1

Thank you to Ubisoft for picking us to be members of the Just Sweat Dream Team and sponsoring this fitness series. Please click here to learn more about Ubisoft. I was selected for this sponsorship by the Clever Girls Collective. All opinions are my own.

Here we go!!  Today is the day we officially begin our Just Sweat Dream Team transformation.  Watch this first-of-many video diaries we recorded last night if you want to see just how dorky we are:

Ugh!  Seeing ourselves on camera is something that we will have to get used to.  I decided to get a jump on the weight loss by cutting half my hair off.  The jury is still out on that decision, but it's nice and cool for summer.  Anyway, like we said in the video we are really excited to get started on making this positive change in our lives.  The greatest thing about Just Dance is that it is something we love to do as a FAMILY so everyone wins when we do it.  {But only ONE can have the high score and it's gonna' be me -- Amy.  Just sayin'.}

 Now to the reeeeeally painful part of this process.  Our before photos:

Phew!  The cat is out of the bag.  No more secrets.  I think overall our goal is to each lose 40 pounds before we go on the Pioneer Trek with the kids at church in October.  10 pounds a month.  That's pretty realistic, right?  {Secretly, I'd really like to lose at least 60 pounds.  I've always been about 20 pounds lighter than Brent until the past couple of years.  It would make me feel awesome to regain that gap.}  All numbers aside, though, we would really just like to have more energy to keep up with our kids  and get back in the habit of daily exercise. That would be the best thing that could come from this whole experience.

There was once a time, believe it or not, when we were regular gym goers.  At least 5 days a week, no excuses.  I even ran a half marathon several years ago.  In just over 2 hours.  Yeah.  I think I might want to try that again, but I have a way to go before I'm in running shape.  We're counting on Just Dance to be fun enough that we will work out every day without feeling like we we're working out.  And we're just dorky and competitive enough with each other that it will stick!

We'll be checking in periodically on Facebook and Twitter and posting video diaries at least once a month right here on the blog.  You can also follow the Just Sweat Dream Team members' progress on Pinterest.
