Look at you having some words of wisdom.



Its true though.



I need to stop making excuses and put 100% into it. This challenge Im going to start with my niece will be perfect motivation. If I win shes baby sitting for a weekend, and if she wins Im getting her concert tickets. If she puts in the effort and really tries Ill probably end up getting her the tickets anyways.

Shes 17 and is over weight. Shes been to the doctor and they made sure she didnt have any underlying issues. My SIL was telling me last night that she just doesnt do enough. The doctor said she should be walking/running on the treadmill at least 40 minutes a day. She wants to do like 20. I get it. It sucks. It hurts. My legs are going to fall off. But after a few days it goes away and you start feeling better. I need to figure out the best time for me to do it. I could get up early and work out before the kids get up, but Ryan is usually up. Ill send him to the bedroom though. Or do the eliptical that is in the bed room.

Yeah problem is though, we cant afford a membership right now. Hopefully in a few months we are able to.



I wish I lived closer to my niece. We would be able to work out together and really encourage each other more.

I'm going to creep in here.



While I don't mind my body now, I'd still like to lose 15-20lbs. I'm getting the Insanity Fast and Furious DVD because I really don't have enough space inbetween everything I do for an hours worth of exercise a day.



I walk from my car to campus. Grand total it's about 30 minutes of walking time every day. I figure if I add another 20 minutes of exercise before bed, I'll get close enough to my hour of exercise a day that I want. My caloric intake is already low because I basically just listen to my body about hunger. My diet consists of mostly fresh fruits and veggies, yogurt, and fish. I do eat rice and such but not as often as the other stuff.



And here's my most recent body picture. I took this in November when I hit 2 years post partum. So, not too recent but recent enough since my body hasn't changed any.

I have been hardcore slacking. I've still been eating pretty well, just not tracking it.
I have not been working out at all though :oops:



Hopefully the eating better is still helping. Things have gotten thrown off with snow days, weekends, etc. Everything is harder when DS is home and now he's home sick :x

The bane of my existence. I always eat worse on the weekends. :x

Quoting Mayhem.:" Right? If it's all hectic, I'm much more likely to order a pizza or something..and then convince myself that I can eat it :lol: "


I get lazy because I don't have to be 43095830495 places in a day. I can sit and eat an entire cheesecake if I want. :lol:



I didn't do too bad this weekend. I ate a slice of cheesecake and some caramels but I also ate apple slices, grapes, and unbuttered popcorn.

I did grocery shopping on Saturday and got home only to realize I never picked up anything for myself. :evil: So I had to go back out Sunday. :roll:



M refuses to go grocery shopping with me.
