I know you’re looking at that picture and thinking, “Damn girl! You’re so fit and active-looking! Like some kind of fitness model!” And it’s true, I have been taking care of myself lately. Now that my daughter is two years old, I decided it was time to lose the baby weight. I tried going to the gym for a while but I found the exercise equipment to be basic and boring. I needed a lifestyle overhaul. So, I turned to one of the most active and energetic people I know – my daughter Annabel.

Annie sized me up and developed a five-step plan for me to get healthy. You all can follow her advice and whip your bodies into shape, too!
