Revolting Against My Mom Body: Week 1

I am not a fan of working out. I don't enjoy physical fitness, the sweating, all the moving around. Boo.
But what I am a fan of is eating well, and clean eating is what helped me to not gain an insane amount of weight when I was pregnant, and to lose the weight that I did gain really quickly after having Brooks.
But now here I am almost a year later, and my body just doesn't look like MY body (I guess 2 kids will do that).
While my scale my say "You're good." My hips (and stomach and thighs and ass) don't lie. It's not all good. I have a serious case of mom stomach happening, and it's no good. It's a serious epidemic! While fully clothed I can easily trick people into thinking everything is under control under my clothes. But take them layers off, and it's a loosey goosey mess. Everything just needs to tighten, you know? 
So while just the idea of a workout plan makes me want to crawl back in bed and hide under the covers, today I am starting Revolt.
Revolt was born out of Nichole Huntsman's own struggles with weight loss. After 10 years of experimenting, competing on stage and earning her certification as a NASM, CPT, she's now sharing the fat-blasting shortcuts she's come to love. Let her help guide you on your journey with a turn-key system that takes all the guesswork out of fitness. Includes a Quick-Start Guide, the current 6-week workout plan, a daily workout video of the day's workout, the current 6-week diet, and a community of people all working the program together. It's time to reclaim your body, and say NO to living life as a BEFORE. 
I'm not posting any before pictures, because I prefer to only have flattering photos of myself on the internet. And let's face it. A picture of me with a self described mom stomach, standing in a too small bikini, looking like a sad sack, is NOT flattering. But props to all those that can do it, you've got way more guts than me!
So here's me being a total pansy by sharing a fully dressed photo of myself. I tend to wear a lot of loose, long tops to keep things under wraps:)
My current stats:
Weight: 130lb
Body Fat: 26.51%
Waist: 33"
Hips: 38"
Thighs: 21"
Chest: 35"

We were suposed to start the first week with a detox, but due to some confusion, I didn't realize this until after I bought the groceries for the meal plan. So I had Spinach Quiche Bites and some grapefruit for breakfast. I haven't done the workout yet because I probably won't be able to move after, and I wanted to type this out before I fall into a workout induced coma.
I'm hoping to not really lose weight, but to just tighten up all the areas that have started to sag:)
So wish me luck on this 6 week journey to a fiter me!

well you look amazing to me, and your stats are AWESOME!!!

i have never had kids. i have an office job. i am lazy. i love to eat. AND IT SHOWS!!!! it is better to get things together sooner, rather than later. i am 42, screeching up on 43, and i have much work to do. if i don't, things will only get a helluva lot worse!!!

There is no shame in not posting a photo of yourself in little skimpies if you are not comfortable with it. I couldn't believe how I my body fat % was. So I am right there with you in the fact that I don't care to shed weight, I'd rather fix the problem areas.
