I have been so busy with my groundhog day life, that blogging seems to be the first thing to slide. Let's face it, I have important things to do, like
But, back to the matter at hand. I started this as a way to document my weight loss, perhaps throw a little humor (I need to work on both obviously) out into the world. I will admit, I did a cleanse and lost a bunch right away, however I seemed to slide back into my icky habits of the yummy food cravings and gained all but 3 of it back. So, in August I knew I had to get busy. I made sure to workout more and be a little more active and I have been tracking calories like a hawk! The calorie counting is really helping and I am down a total of 13 lbs. now!!!!!! I know, 13 is still a looooong way away from my 50 lb. goal, but is a start. I am FINALLY able to wear pairs of pants that haven't fit me since before Karson was cookin'! Nothing makes me happier than putting on a pair of pants and not having a camel toe! TMI?!?! Ladies, you know what I mean, admit it!
I have a tiny confession, working out still seems to be a struggle. With that being said, if I actually stick with a workout longer than a week or two, I will start seeing more results (at least I better...I am not one to work out just because...I want some results, dang it!). Anywho...blogging about my boring weight loss is, well, BORING! No one REALLY cares if I lose weight. Ok, maybe my husband does...not because he is a giant a-hole or anything, but because he is tired of listening to be whine about being bigger than I want to be and because he KNOWS that I have taken over half of the closet up with clothes that don't fit. What's that Kyle, you didn't know most of those clothes do not fit me? OOPS...ya do now! I PROMISE as soon as I lose some more weight to go through my
Something that has helped tremendously is our NO Spend September. We made the month of No spend a success by meal planning weekly and making fresh, from scratch foods. We were not tempted to eat out and therefore there was less of a chance of me binge eating crap. You can't eat what you do not have in the house! Is it really that difficult to plan a weekly menu and shop accordingly, NO! Does the cleaning up after cooking every night suck? YES!
On another note...for the 2 of you who read my blog, remember that day I needed a TIME OUT? Pretty sure I still need one! I kid, I kid. I still have good days and bad days of being a WAHM. Karson is now super mobile (like could be walking at any time mobile) and Lena has the attitude of a 14 year old girl. I swear...why do 3 year old have so much attitude???? But, I have enrolled Lena in Dance and a weekly "Lunch Bunch" Tumble class. I am PRAYING it helps her get some energy out and make her start following directions.
Welp, blogging time is over. Karson is awake and I can't complete a decent thought with him crawling up my legs under the table. I promise to come back more frequently and with more stimulating content! Maybe I will even throw some photos in the mix...
Off to track some calories, because let's face it, it's snack time in this house!
