Starting Over in September

Wednesday, September 04, 2013

Ok first and of course most important-- check out my little cutie!!! emoticon

Ahhhhh I just love that kid!!! emoticon

Ok back to it--

So I've still be struggling with this whole balance of nursing/eating healthy/working out/losing weight thing. I do pretty good with the working out and nursing thing (ha!) but I clearly SUCK at eating healthy and losing weight. I still haven't found that balance of the perfect amount of calories in.

.....but then again, the cookies, cupcakes, and other terrible for you snacks don't really help that!

But I always feel FAMISHED!!!!! I know that's really common for nursing mommies but JEEZE! I eat more than my husband! (...and almost weigh as much as him too! emoticon )

So since September is a BRAND SPANKIN' NEW Month, I decided I was starting over mentally. I'm letting go of the past few months of bad-for-me things and I'm moving on! Starting fresh.
A clean slate.

In September I WILL:
- Finish my C25K Program (I'm on week 8!! Woot Woot!) and START OVER! (I'm running SUPER slow and really struggling some days)
- Eat more healthy foods-- less processed crap and more fruits and veggies (goal 2-5 servings/day)
- 2-3 Days of strength training/week
- Cut back on the amount of sweet treats I allow myself (1-2 cheats/week....which is much better than the 6-7 I was allowing!)

I'm going to be nicer to myself this month too! It's time to realize that I just had a baby a little over 3 months ago. It's ok that I'm still wearing maternity clothes (for now!). I've got to give myself and my body time to adjust. I didn't gain all the baby weight over night and I can't lose it that quickly either!

I've got to start with baby steps. Little changes lead to big results, right?!

So here's to a new beginning Sparkies! What are your goals for September? What little changes are you making? We've got this!!! Let's make it count!

    Your goals seem pretty reasonable, you can do it! I loved nursing my babies, it was almost like you were forced to stop and take a break and just sit. Well, no,, I guess it wasn't 'almost' like that, it 'was' like that. Precious time that goes so fast.

    My goal for September is to try to lose another 5 lbs. Five pounds seems SO easy, but anyone who has TRIED to lose 5 lbs. knows that it isn't always a walk in the park, so we'll see what happens!

    Good luck on your goals for this month! emoticon
