It’s amazing how once you get *out* of a routine it’s sooo hard to be good and jump back into exercising/eating right again!
The *good* news is that I lost 1.5 lbs Yey! So I’ve just got 6.5 lbs to go to my pre-baby weight. Since my goal is to still hit that by the time Tyler is 9 months old I should definitely be able to, especially if I can ever get my lazy bones in gear and stick to what I say I need to do! I know I’m getting lots of cardio(ish) exercise from hauling the kiddos around to all our various activities so I think I want to start really focusing on strength training/toning stuff. I’m doing the exact same thing I did with Amber and dropping all the weight through nursing so even though I’ve lost 28.5 lbs and am actually now at what is considered a “healthy” weight I still feel all jiggly and have love handles. Exactly what I said I didn’t want to have happen, haha! So time to focus on toning up and getting my body to look the way I want it along with continuing to drop the extra lbs!
Over on the Winter Weight Off post this week they’re talking about choosing light options. I’m all for choosing skim milk and things like that, but if I want ice cream you better believe I’m going for the real thing. I also avoid a lot of aritifical sweetners like aspartme since they have bad side effects like giving me a headache and research shows that they actually make you want and crave real sugar/sugary food more badly.
Goals for this week!
Workout 3 times-focusing on crunches/pushups/toning exercises
Nix the after dinner/mindless eating snacking habit
How are your goals coming and what’s your take on the “light” options?
