Day 6

I have done very well this week! I have worked out every day except today because my mom came over and I haven't gotten time yet. I am hoping to get a small workout or maybe at least some crunches or sit-ups in before bed. Tomorrow is update day and I'm pretty excited to see if I've lost any weight or inches and hopefully my pictures look better too! :)

I bought some new jeans the other day and today was the first day that I wore them. (besides trying them on at the store) They fit me perfect and they were a size 11! My last pair was a size 14! It feels so great! I did take a picture, I'll try to upload soon!

Day 2

Today is Saturday so I'm not doing my 40 min. Workouts. I did do some sit-ups, crunches, leg lifts and pushups though. So far so good on food as well. I did eat 2 Oreos and a little bit of popcorn yesterday but it was with in my calories for the day so it's fine. Also, I was very proud of myself last night. We were watching a show, actually about 4 episodes of the show and everyone was snacking and let me just say how bad I wanted to order a pizza, it is my absolute favorite food, especially on the weekends and even more when watching movies or shows in this case. Instead I went to the kitchen and got a carrot. :) yay me!

My Plan:

I am going to be eating serveral low calorie foods throughout the day.
very limited sweets
small portions when eating large meals (we go out to eat every sunday)

Playing with my sweet four year old, Arianna. :P
Breastfeeding my precious 2 month old, Camden :)

A picture of them this morning. :)

I need this to be a lifestyle change. I am not going on a diet. Once I reach my goal weight I want to continue this plan in hopes to stay at that weight and be healthy.

I actually started my lifestyle change on September 1, 2011 at 165lbs and i have lost a good amount of weight with minimal excersice and a lot of cheat days but today is the day, I am going to buckle down and do this! :) Along with losing weight my lifestyle change also includes growing my hair out, keeping it its natural color and keeping it healthy as well as my body and reading all of Jodi Picoult's books! :) LOVE THEM! I have read 2 so far, 'The Pact' and 'Keeping Faith'. Today I am starting 'Salem Falls'.

So this morning I am super proud of myself! :) I only got maybe 4 hours of sleep last night but instead of going back to bed this morning (I wake up with my husband when he goes to work at 4:50am) I did my workouts for 40 min. :) Then I had my breakfast, Special K chocolatey delight cereal in 2 % milk. I feel GREAT right now, aside from being tired. :) Now since I know that sleep is very important also I did get a few more hours in. Just a side note: my kids are amazing. They sleep until 10 am. :)
