You know you're a hardcore mom when you have a blister on your hand from pushing the stroller.
In other news.... I've been eating less meat and dairy, and more whole grains, not perfect at all but more than usual, and I'm already seeing progress weight wise, I'm at a lower weight now then I was before my second baby was born finally!!! yayyyyyyyyy!! Now, to get lower then before the first baby was born, that's the next goal!! The nice thing is though, I'm 215lbs and I haven't been that thin in awhile, my pants are slipping down, I need a belt, and 215lbs for me is that tipping point where I feel more able to be active and energized, whereas when I'm 220 I just feel miserable and unable to perform even simple tasks because of how big I am. Perhaps that's why on the BMI measurement it's somewhere in the 220's that turns into obese for me and 215 is just overweight! I know some people might think that's not worth celebrating but I do, yayyy overweight!!! lol I look downright skinny still to myself, since I used to be more around 250lbs or more for the majority of my life.
oh and another big switch........ I switched from 5 - 6 cups of coffee a day to 1 green tea. GO ME!!!!!!!!!!! I feel so much more calm and at peace with myself. The caffeine was wreaking havoc. I think I'm a better mom now, more patience, less on edge. Zen style :)
How is everyone else doing??

We just moved, and only now, about 6 wks later, are things taking on some semblance of normalcy. I have totally fallen off the wagon, or as I said, it threw me off - but now I'm hoping to get back on track, little by little. It's hard, with two kids under two, there always seems to be something stressful.. right now we're sleep training our youngest which is foreign territory for me at this age of 4 months... with my oldest we only bit the bullet when she was much older... anywho it is stressful to hear her putting herself to sleep because I'm not used to it - even if she's just kind of moaning and talking her way to sleep! She's doing great, me, not so much, its still new to me to do a routine and put a baby in a crib and walk away... I used to nurse my oldest to sleep and creep away after so long that I usually fell asleep next to her - can't do that any more with a baby and a toddler!
ANYWAY... looking for inspiration, motivation and someone to hold me accountable... if anyone has any ideas, I'm open!!!!!!

Very happy to say that I've lost 10 lbs since I started this new journey January 1st. I've had ups and downs already - I'm currently in a "low". I'm not tracking my food, and I've been eating out of control sometimes... and yet this morning when I weighed myself, I still weigh 216, my lowest and have not gained yet. So, that makes me happy. I think that when I was tracking, I was losing weight way too fast (below the recommended). Breastfeeding 2 young ones does have it's positives!!!
So, yet again, I will seek a middle ground... I will try not to binge, knowing that I haven't "blown it" and that I should keep on keeping on...
And I have had FOUR people notice that I've lost weight!!!!! So even though I've been in a slump... people are noticing ironically!
More motivation to keep going.
Healthy, one day at a time.
