Back from Iowa

Friday, October 28, 2011

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. :)

    Just keep focusing on yourself and see what happens, if you can drop some weight before the next one you'll be setting yourself up for success, and more likelihood that you'll be able to at least do some walking during the pregnancy :) Great job on the 3 lbs. I'll have to check out that book!
