Back on track

I was surprised yet thrilled when I got on the scale this morning. I'm down exactly two pounds from last week:) I only got to exercise twice but I did 1800 calories (to the best of my ability daily) and it seems to have paid off. I've been drinking 100 oz of water a day as well. Let me tell you, I feel like I'm pregnant in regards to the multiple trips to the bathroom....blah!!

My goal for this week is to exercise 30 min. on three days. If I can do more that would be great. But I'm not going to set a crazy goal only to disappoint myself next week. After all my 4th baby is only 6 weeks old, so I'm still adjusting to her being around. I'm also hoping to be out of the 170s by the middle of December. I think that seems pretty realistic. I'm hoping to find my mp3 player today because exercising isn't the same without it. Music is the key for me to get motivated to workout.

Failure....that's my new name

I HATE Halloween and the fact that I can't find 30 minutes in the day to exercise. The candy has got to go. I won't even go in to detail with the amount of candy I have consumed. I have three kids that each has a basket full of candy, just to give you an idea of what I'm doing in between cleaning and caring for my 1 month old baby. I'm actually on the verge of tears because I know Monday's weigh-in will just depress me even more:( I'm really hating myself right now. How am I ever gonna reach my goal like this??? What kind of example am I setting for my kids?? Some people say I'm being too hard on myself since I just had my baby a month ago. But I don't want to use that as an excuse to eat because it shouldn't play a factor in my unhealthy eating and lack of exercise. I just want to crawl in bed and hide for a while. NO chance of that happening.

Feeling good;)

Today despite every single obstacle that tried to get in my way, I worked out!!! It was only 20 minutes, but I feel a real sense of accomplishment today. Exercise makes me feel so good inside, its truly amazing how that short amount of time has changed my mood. I did tons of stretching beforehand then I did 15 min on the elliptical machine and about 5 minutes of weights.

I also weighed in at 175 lbs exactly. I was 171 before we got pregnant in January so I will definitely be at my short-term goal of my post-pregnancy weight within the next week or two. My husband thinks I'm sexy now...just weight until I drop the next 30 lbs:D
