Today pretty much sums up why I am here. I made a batch of cookies for a playdate and over the course of the day ate about a dozen small cookies. It makes me feel gross, but I can't resist.
I need some focus. I have never blogged before but maybe this is the time. I have been looking at other SparkPeople blogs and I can see people who have overcome incredible challenges.
These are my challenges:
- I do not know how to fit working out into my life with my toddler and newborn
- I have no self control
- I am ravenous from nursing, but I also have a lot of excess body fat
- I am so overweight that exercising is actually difficult. For instance, I tried to do some of the stretches (airplane, leg lifts) and it was painful to complete even one set.
Wednesday nights are "my" nights. I have signed up for 8 weeks of Tai Chi, which starts tomorrow. I will continue doing the stretches and walks, and they will get easier as I tone up. I have programmed some of my local walks into the map tracker.
HERE I GO!!!
