Gonna be less pooh sized!

Monday, January 21, 2013

So we are done having children. Well, my husband is, I'm not, but he is. Some days I'm ok with this, but some times I just cant handle it. This leads to me crying, and blah blah blah. So somehow one of these nights of my crying lead to our talking about the future, and the fact that I feel like I have nothing to plan for now that the kids are getting older. So this all lead to.........


We went in 2010, and I have been asking to go back ever since. Like, I wanted to plan another trip the second we left the hotel, lol. One of the (few) perks to being done and having older children is that we can plan expensive vacations. We were planning to go with my sister in 2015, but that is just SO far away. So we are going on a short (5 day) trip in mid Aug.

Gives me even more reason to want to lose weight, and get myself fit. When we went in 2010 I got SO over tired from all the walking.

I am hopeful to start couch to 5k in April, once the weather is better. I have a double stroller now, so it will be easier to run with the kids. Until then I will just have to be happy with walking in the mall.

I also need to work on coming to terms with the fact that I will never be a size 12. I will likely never be a size 16. I am 29 years old, I have three children, and my genetics are totally against me. All of this is ok. I can be healy, and a size 20-18, and be happy with myself. I need to re-think my goals and wants.

I would like to get down to a size 20 before Aug, maybe to a size large, or 1x also. I would also like to go down a ring size or two. My husband got me an AMAZING ring for Christmas, and it is a size 7. My ring finger is a size 10. Im not sure how many ring sizes = weight, or what not, but hopefully it can one day be on my ring finger where it belongs.

    I'm not sure about ring sizes changing too much. My ring size is 9. Even when I was 60 pounds thinner it was still an 8-9 (depending on the style and who you asked). I think ring size has a lot to do with bone structure too--not just weight.
