So I'm back again. :)
After treating this summer like one long, cheat day, I stepped on the scale today (yes, I know it's October, but the weather just stopped acting like summer, so I will too...) and I've gained almost 10 lbs. Yikes!!
I don't regret the morning gourmet coffee runs with my husband, or the after-dinner gelato trips with my kids. Life is too short to go without indulgences.
But it's time to re-focus on my diet and shed these extra pounds that are making my shirts too tight and jeans uncomfortable.
A little bit about me:
I'm a 36-year-old wife and stay-at-home mother of two. My daughter is 3, and my son is 1, and trying to find the time to work out between playdates and naptime was difficult. But in the last month, I've started to establish a routine that works for us, and I've been able to go to the gym Monday through Friday. It's been great to get back into it and I can tell my body is loving it too. I actually like the aches and sores a good workout leaves me. :)
The hard part now will be to establish a healthier diet. I've always been a healthy eater, heavy on veggies, fruit, Greek yogurt, nuts, olive oil, etc., but I need to cut back on the amount I eat, as well as cut out the junk -- like kettle chips, cheese, and desserts.
My plan is to eat (mostly) raw during the day, starting with Green Juice in the morning that I'll make in my juicer. At night, we'll eat a Paleo-recipe dinner.
I love meeting other moms who are passionate about eating healthy and exercising. I want to set a great example for my children (and husband, haha!) so that they can, hopefully, live healthy lives too.

    Hey there, how is the weening going? Sugar is a hard thing to give up!!

    I'm Anna, and I'm new to the Working Moms team, trying to stir up some activity. I know we are all busy with kids/spouses/work/play dates/homework/ cooking/cleaning/bills/working out LIFE! I would love to have a team I can have fun with, chat with, share the ups and downs with. Who better than a group of working mothers will understand everything we juggle?
