This is a really hard blog for me to write considering I'm 38 weeks pregnant, will be having this little bundle of boy any day now up to the 20th of this month, and trying to lose the 30+ lbs I gained with him while nursing. What was I thinking?
Yep, I WAS thinking....I need to be a great reminder to others, myself and my family that a 40 year old woman can have a baby, be successful with family and career, and still maintain a healthy lifestyle.
So here are my SMART goals:
Specific - Once I have little Joshua, I'd like to lose 20 pounds by the end of this BLC22.
Measurable - I will continue to track my food and hopefully after being home from the hospital, I will actually feel like exercising. This extra weight is really dragging me down (literally and physically).
Attainable - I know that 20 pounds is attainable because after my last one was born, I weighed less once I got home from the hospital. Amazing how that works but here's hoping!
Relevant - I want to be a good example for my children on eating healthy and getting back into shape when life gets in the way.
Time-Bound - Honestly I feel that by the end of BLC22, I can be at my starting weight of when I first found out I was pregnant. It is totally doable but the 20 pounds sounded much better and much more attainable.
Please don't get me wrong. I feel very blessed to be pregnant with a boy after having 3 girlies. Sadly though, I was just starting to lose weight in a good way when I found out I was pregnant. I know that after Joshua is born, I can keep up my healthy habits and losing weight the correct way. I can't wait to see what God has in store for my family this summer!!!
Oh yeah....I can't forget the pictures!
This is me last week at 37 weeks. Getting pretty big or should I say Joshua is getting pretty big!
These are my three cute girlies. Rachel (7), Ruth (6) and Sarah (3).
