~I hadn't weighed myself for at least 3 wks because I had not been working out or eating too well, so what's the point, right? Not sure what came over me this morning but the result was enough to propel me into immediately changing my crap-habits.
~You see, I have embarked on workout routines & healthy eating many times post-baby in an effort to shed this 18ish-lbs, but with little to no results. I recently discovered that 30% of women don't actually lose all their babyweight until they stop nursing. I'm REALLY hoping that I'm in that 30%!!! Otherwise I don't know why I haven't had better results when I was consistently working out.
~Today was day 1 of my 'new & improved' habits.
~Thankfully the weather is gorgeous which inspires me to get out with the little man in the stroller and do our 2+ mile hilly walking route. An awesome workout. Takes about 45 minutes. I plan to do this EVERY day this week. Shouldn't have a problem with that.
~I also managed to drink 4 bottles of H2O today, which has been a challenge to do recently, but used to come so easily way back when (I was slimmer).
~Additionally, I ate much better today and even refrained from eating anything @ the 'student worker appreciation dinner' today @ 4:30pm in the office...wanting to leave @5pm sharp helped with the motivation to not eat anything!!
~So now I am exhausted from the walk and I am fighting the urge to consume a gazillion Oreo cookies with a glass of milk, so instead I think I'll go put E to bed and likely zonk out myself. I'm beat!
