So, my girlies bailed on me for Yoga last night. One has a sick grandpa and the other didn't feel like going after locking herself out of her house AND getting a flat tire. So, normally I would have just said "No way, I'm not going by myself," but we've been going for awhile now and I decided to brave it on my own! I was pleasantly surprised! I am the biggest in the class. When we do arm stuff I get embarrassed because my arms are so big. Yuck. Anyways there was a new athletic girl who was wearing those shoes that look like socks. I overheard her say that she runs alot. She was next to me, but I tried not to be intimidated. Well, guess what??!?!!?! She must not do a lot of balancing and strectching because she kept falling and couldn't do a lot of the stuff. Now, I'm not making fun of her. It just felt good to know that the time I've spent in the class has done something to my body. When I first started I couldn't do crocodile and I had to drop to my knees first. Now, I'm rocking it! Some of the moves I still need to modify but I can feel myself getting stronger each time. I was so glad that I went.
I'm struggling with logging my food. I'm a bit of a perfectionist and I don't like to estimate. Tonight I'm going to play Just Dance 3 with my daughter and get a nice walk/jog done in the morning if my baby allows. I'm trying to remember that I'm changing my life and that's not going to happen overnight, but every decision that I make every day affects my outcome later. The future looks bright. :)

Well, I'm back from a week visit to my husband's family in good ole Iowa. I struggled with eating healthy things, but because we ate a lot with other people I tended to eat less of those things, plus I did not snack a whole lot because it wasn't my home or my food. So, as it turns out I'm basically the same weight that I was when I left, which is down almost 3 pounds! It's been slow, but worth it. I'm still just about the biggest I've ever been, but I know that it won't stay that way long.
I started a book on the trip called "Run Your Butt Off" so far I like everything that I've read and am starting there running program this week! I'm excited! I really need to get back to tracking my food though. That's something that I really struggle with. I forget what brand I ate and I don't have the wrapper, or whatever my excuses are. Just do it, Lisa!
The husband and I are considering more children which weight-wise scares me. I feel like I'm gonna lose all this weight again just to put it back on with another pregnancy. I know that I can have a healthy pregnancy but with what happened with my last one, I know that I will not be allowed to work out much. I told him that I will consider it after this summer. I am really excited for more babies, just not so sure about the way it will affect my body.
Well, I'm gonna give it a good try this week. I am going to work out and really work on my eating which is where I struggle most. Catch ya on the flip side. :)

So, lately I've been walking while my 9-year-old is at Volleyball and Cheer. I turn my headphones on, push my baby and tune everything out. Well, yesterday my good friend who has a new baby also, asked if I wanted to go walking. I said of course and we headed to the local rec center. My daughter came along with my friends older son and they were supposed to go practice volleyball. My friend and I walked and chitchatted and about halfway through our walk, the kids returned to join us. My daughter got right inbetween the two of us and began to talk. I immediately became frustrated and asked her to walk behind us and turn on her ipod. I continued to get annoyed for the next few minutes until I realized why I was so upset. I love my daughter so much, but my walking time is my ME time. It's my time to unwind and enjoy the physicalness of it, and not have to deal with any other distractions.
So, from now on I'm going to make sure that she has some other activity to do or that its just me and her so that we can chitchat. :)
