I'm ready!

Tomorrow, I will be 10 weeks postpartum with #6 and I'm so ready to get started.  Breastfeeding has been established(and going quite well). I'm drinking water like crazy.  Have got to work on the eating part.  I wouldn't be doing this if I had the perfect diet, right?  I've never had a problem exercising.  So I know what I need to work on.  I will be blogging a couple of times a week or as often as possible with six kids.  Weigh-ins will be every Tuesday.  Look for my first weigh-in tomorrow(5/22/12).

 I look forward to sharing my journey with you!

Its been about 10 months....I'm back!!

Ny'Lia Oliviah Robinson was born on 3/13/12 at 11:31pm weighing in at 9lbs. 6oz. (I will be updating my family blog with the birth story, etc. later this week).

I'm feeling pretty good. Get sore if I'm up on my feet for too long. I am really eager to get the "show on the road" but my body is telling me that its not quite ready.

With six kids, I think my biggest challenge is going to be time. The baby is breastfeeding on demand so I can't say that I have a certain time in which to workout. So for now, I'll get into the habit of eating properly and drinking lots of water. I MIGHT start a facebook fan page to keep myself accountable. Do you all think thats a good idea or should I just stick to blogging??Nothing like telling people how much you weigh and posting pics to really get my butt on the right track.

I see I still have some followers. Say hi if you're still around to cheer me on. My 6 week check up is on 4/26/12. So I will be posting that day to see exactly where my head is and what my plan of action will be to get rid of this baby weight.

Coming Up For Air:)

Hello gang!!

I know I haven't posted in a bit but I'm still alive and kickin';)I think I've must of made an attempt to blog a dozen times in the last week.  My apologies.

Packing up a house you have live in for almost 6 years is no easy task with five children!!!I'm tired all the time, but a happy kind of tired.  I can't wait to wake up in our new house and new neighborhood.   I'm REALLY over the ridiculous paperwork and the amount of phone calls I have to make in order to make sure things go smoothly with the move.  I think once we're move in, we'll be living out of boxes for a while.  

As far as eating healthy and stay on track goes, I've been doing pretty well.  Nothing really got in they way of my making the right choices and exercising. Had a little treat at Sonic Drive-In(LOVE that place and how the kids react to us being there!!They think its so cool to eat in the van lol).  Its all about moderation.

This morning I had to kick my own ass to get out of bed to work out.  I did way too much yesterday and my body was just in chill out mode.  I don't think I sat down until about 1030 last night. I kept saying to myself  "you can sleep in Saturday; "get your ass up";"come on its only one hour, be good to yourself".  Then I started saying *insert yawn here* "It feels so good lying in bed next to hubby"; "I could always make up for today some other time".  This went on for about a good 20 min before I wiped away those eye buggers and put on my workout clothes.  I'm probably going to have many more mornings like this(as we all do) but its so worth it in the long run to tough it out and take time for me!

Well its finally nap, I mean "quiet" time, so I need to do some more packing while I can.  I hope you all are doing well out in the blogsphere!!

Hoozah!!!!(Weigh-In #4)

Well, this is going to be short and sweet.  We have to do a ton of stuff this weekend.  Sorry I haven't been blogging very much this week.  I have a ton on my plate.

I'm not quite sure what I was expecting this week.  I've been so stressed about looking for a house, then finding a house that we LOVE and all of the drama that it entails.  We signed the papers, so we can now finally move out of here!!This house is too small.

I can't believe that I'm no longer in the 180s.  2.9 lbs GONE!!This is a wonderful feeling!!!!!Now to destroy the 170s. I prefer looking at my weight loss, 10 lbs at a time.  It seems less daunting to me that way:D

Great Support-Figuring it all out!

I didn't get to weigh-in this weekend. This weekend was HECTIC!!

Revamping things. Hubby is going to be staying home for the baby's morning feeding, so I can get a workout in before he goes to work:D So I can FINALLY start taking care of myself. I've been getting frustrated because I couldn't find the time to exercise.  I'm always prepping dinner, making important phone calls, doing housework during nap time and in the morning I'm trying to juggle getting the boys off to school, nursing the baby, getting the girls breakfast, and a million other things.  I CAN DO THIS!! I REALLY need to do this!!Why didn't I ask my husband for help sooner?  He's always so helpful and good to me:)I can't wait to see where I'm at 6 months from now. I'm going to do Turbo Jam in the morning. I am NOT a morning person. This is going to be interesting.  Me, waking up at 6 am to exercise.   Blah! But this is the only way I can see that I will succeed at losing weight.  I can't keep complaining about not being able to work out and not take my husband up on his offer to help me. That would be just dumb.  I was going to do the C25K, but I don't think my body is ready for it just yet.   I will definitely be doing it at some point though.  I've never been enthusiastic about running, but I like a challenge;)  Off to bed so I can get a decent amount of sleep.
