Happy 2010! I hope everyone had a great holiday season!
This year I have a lot of personal goals I need to work to achieve...one of my main 'non-spiritual' goals, apart from finally becoming an organized person, is to loose at least 20 pounds before may! Why May? My sister's getting married! I gotta rock the red bridesmaid's dress! hahaha Seriously though, I haven't lost ANY weight since my initial loss when I went in for my 6 week post-partum check. This time around it has taken me A LOT longer to loose the baby weight...and I'm going to be 30 in March...so I'm only going down hill from there (metabolism slowing down etc)!
So by my birthday, which is March 20th, I hope to be close to my weight loss goal.
How do I intend to do this? I wish there was an easy way, which would also be a healthy way for me to loose the weight...but I'm sticking to the good ol' eating healthy, and exercise routine. I talked to my Doctor, and since I'm nursing, I can't exactly be on a low calory diet...and I need to be careful about the exercise I do, or it can all lead to a decrease in milk production.
We have Wii fit plus and I exercised every night for about 2 weeks...and then the holidays came around! I have a pantry full of treats and candy (thanks to a great sale at Randy's work!)...so I put them in the pantry... now at least they're out of sight, and not on the counter tops...
I hadn't ever been a 'sweets' kind of person, but ever since I was pregnant with Anna I discovered that chocolate and sweets are almost a necessity!! Good for my taste buds...bad for my thighs!
So the point of this blog is for someone, anyone who reads this...to hold me accountable!
My sister in law is training to run in the Ogden Marathon this summer...and I'm considering the option...I have never been in a marathon, but looking at all the people that run in marathons...I want to have their stamina and their bodies!
My biggest obstacle is making time to exercise...because that means I would have to do it before the kids wake up in the morning ( I love sleep too much), or after they go to bed (They are both asleep by around 9:30pm). I can't really exercise while they're awake...I have tried and it just doesn't work with a 2 and a half year old and almost 8 month old! I guess I could be exercising right now too instead of blogging :)
So wish me luck! I want to be able to look back at my pictures when I was 30 and say "Wow! I looked better than when I was 20!"
Any tips for me?
p.s. I have decided to start recording 'The biggest Loser' for some inspiration! :)
A fun new Hobby!
