Okay- I’ve had it. I’m done with all this extra baby weight. I thought it would just fall off since I’m breastfeeding, but apparently lack of sleep mixed with halloween candy has taken its toll. So what is a chubby Mom to do? Well, I’m using YOU…my blog readers as motivation. For six months I will update my blog each month with my weight, workout, diet and next month’s goal. I actually am pretty embarrassed to post here my weight, but I don’t care. If anything, it should make you feel better about your weight, and at the same time motivate me to get in shape. See, it’s a win-win.
Here we go:
Height: 5’9″ (just posting this once, sense it won’t change)
Workout: Since Dan is only home on the weekends I’ve taken advantage of the gym TWICE when he’s watched Parker. I am a pretty regular walker of the two-mile loop around the block, but that is the extent of my current work out routine
Diet: My diet is pretty horrible right now. I’m a sucker for Luna nutrition bars, but I’m pretty sure they’re not suppose to be eaten more than three times a day. I’ve had to cut out salads and some high fiber foods because it was causing Parker to be gassy. I’m still a big sucker for sweets too..I have at least 2-3 a day (I know…it’s horrible!) My weakness is chocolate. I’m good about drinking water and I have only the occasional soda. I’m Mostly sticking with lean sandwich meats in sandwiches for lunch and Muesli cereal for breakfast. Dinner can be hit or miss with everything from frozen pizza to chicken and rice.
I want to say for the record that I would like to get this done over night, but I know that it will take some time. Mainly because it took 9 months to put it on, but also because I’m breastfeeding, and I have to make sure that it doesn’t affect my milk supply. This is why I’m stretching this over six months.
Next Month’s Goal: I would like to loose 7lbs taking me to 210. Over the next month I would like to decrease my sweets intake (including chocolate) to once a day. I would like to focus on making my dinner choices better. I would like to work out vigorously three days a week and light exercise two-three days a week. Try to get more sleep at night (or as much as a mom with a baby can!).

Wish me luck! =)
