Healthy After Two Babies

I had a baby in December 2009 and then one this year in March 2015. Last time I lost the "baby fat", it took me two years and a PT and many hours at the gym, like at least two a day. This time, however, my time will be more limited, and I want to focus on health instead of driving myself crazy trying to get to some fantasy body.

I had a baby in December 2009 and then one this year in March 2015. Last time I lost the "baby fat", it took me two years and a PT and many hours at the gym, like at least two a day. This time, however, my time will be more limited, and I want to focus on health instead of driving myself crazy trying to get to some fantasy body.

I want to focus on healthy eating and keeping an organized, clean home for my children. I also plan on taking my children on regular outings. I won't be a gym rat, this go round, because I would rather spend time with my kids. But, I do plan to take up yoga again and maybe hit the gym two to three times a week or do something comparable, like take a morning walk.

My ultimate goals are to get back into healthy movement and continue to achieve healthy eating and exercise goals. Also, I need to get my knees back in shape, as post baby #2, I am struggling to climb stairs.

So, here's to a fresh start and a better, saner focus.

(4) Do yoga at least once a week.
(5) Make healthy food choices, despite cravings.

Daily Goals:

(4) Exercise at least 45 minutes every day.

(5) Focus on positive thoughts, actions, and words.

Personal Information:

Ah, I like Simona Arlene. Arlene is my best cousin's name. I love the "a" on Simon...it makes it sound a bit more sophisticated.
