Time To Get the Show on the Road

I recently gave birth to my fourth child on October 3, 2008 and we (my husband and I) have decided that our family is now complete. I am ready to start taking care of my body now and devote some time to my health and well being. I lost all the weight before deciding to have our last child, so I know that I can do it. Its just a matter of figuring out when I'm going to fit exercise into my hectic schedule as a stay-at-home-mom and wife.

My goal is to have 3 days of cardio in one hour sessions and 2 days of strength training; one hour sessions as well. I plan to start off at 2000 calories a day because I'm breastfeeding my daughter and I don't want to ruin my milk supply. Lean Cuisines and Slim-fast will also play a major role in my diet. I also plan to drink at least 100 oz of water per day. Tomorrow will be my first official weigh in since I will be 2 weeks postpartum. I'm so excited to finally start taking care of ME.

That was my exact motivation: starting to take care of ME! You are off to a wonderful start, and you are doing it for all the right reasons. You go girl!!! I can't wait until we are all (all of us out here in blogger land) fantabulous!

Keep up the good work! And yay to you for breastfeeding. Your children are now on the right path to a healthy life free from disease.
