Tuesday, September 02, 2014

Well, It is is a busy month for youngest son will be 4 on the 3rd and my oldest son will be 11 on the 9th and our close friends son's birthday is the 5th...looking like a lot of cake for me. I am determined to kick this into high gear and work youngest son told me today.."you have a really big shirt on," and I said "that is because I am bigger," and he said "Yeah because you have a big tummy," yeah that is true and now it is echoing in my head.

September Goals:

1: exercise 6 days a week at least 30 minutes a day.

2: track my food and exercise.

3. Eat healthy meals at least 5 days a week..

4. Find new healthy recipes

5. drink at least 64 oz of water a day.

6. journal everyday.

I want to be below 200 by my birthday which is 12/ weight has gone up a bit lately so I really have to work hard from here on out!!

    I've also got birthday season coming up. I'm going to add fruit & veg trays to the menu and add less sugary stuff: just the cake. I'm glad to have found stay at home moms like you! You can do it!!!

    I can empathize. This is the beginning of a rough season for weight loss! I think last year was the first fall/winter of my life that I lost instead of gained. I promise, it can be done! Lol My best trick at birthdays is to claim "I don't have much of a sweet tooth lately" and just have a bite or two of my husband or kids cake. A whole piece is too tempting, and someone always makes me feel like I'm being a bad host/guest/parent/etc if I admit it's for my own health. *eye roll*

    With 10 days you can make a start but you will need a life time to be there for your daughter as she grows and flourishes
