I don't even think there's a way that I could catch y'all up on all these months but I'll try..
I got a puppy, moved in with my son's father, gave birth to the most beautiful little boy ever almost 7 months ago, packed up & moved out a month later, got engaged (to his father), moved back in 5 months later. Been here a couple months now & things are GREAT! We leave in 28 days for Vegas with a few friends & family and will be married in exactly 30 days!!
Okay, that's the highlights. ;)
With that said, let me move on to my goals & where I am in life. I weighed 160[ish] when I got pregnant. Was 207 when I gave birth & was down 33 pounds 11 days later. And didn't lose another pound.
Fast forward to today. After picking the date & place & the wedding becoming a reality, I've really been struggling to drop 10[ish] pounds by D-day. I started working out (again) and didn't notice the scale moving much. So last week I decided to switch to an 80/20 Clean Eating diet. Not knowing much about it, & finances being limited, it's really just included a Green Smoothie for breakfast, a fruit smoothie for lunch & some sort of healthy dinner. Scale's moved down 4-5lbs.
I've been watching a friends CRAZY bad-a** kids for 3 weeks now and that's been really stressing me out. It's 50+ hours a week &, up until last Thursday, it was her 3 year old all day & then her 6yr old twins after school. That ruined my exercise streak & Sparking altogether. Still been watching my food & getting in exercise here and there but I know it's sabotaging my goals. So I told her it was just too much for me & have cut back to just watching the girl til 12 & then have the rest of the day to myself. But I still have another job to go to & still have to get in my tanning (can't be as pale as my dress after all ;)) and spend some sort of time w/ the family. I'm just having a really hard time finding my groove. It seems when my exercise is on track, my eating's crap. When my nutrition is going good, my exercise is lacking. I Need it to all fit together right now in order for me to reach my goal of losing 5-8 more pounds in 30 days! (Really less then that so I can actually go buy a dress!!!)
With that said, ain't nuttin to it but to do it. So I'm gonna quit stressing myself about this and get to bed so I can start fresh in the morning ;)
So glad to be back and I look forward to seeing friendly faces! Here's a few pictures to share...
