So Michelle was wondering how I am doing. Let me just say, I'm maintaining. Not horrible right?! :)

My schedule has been really full and exercising has gotten to the bottom of my to do list. I really wish I could find the time though. The only time I can think of is in the morning before Ryan gets up, but lately he has been only sleeping for 5 hours and I feed him and then he wakes up in another 3-4 hours, and I am still so tired. I think that rest is as necessary as exercise is. So really right now I am just struggling to find the time in my day for exercise. I can't neglect Ryan or my work so after making dinner, eating, and if I'm lucky, showering, there just isn't much time! :) I'm working on it though. When I find a balance, I will gladly post about it!

Another thing that has been getting in my way is sweets. I just LOVE sweets! I try not to buy them, but if I am somewhere like a party, I can't have just one. I have to have two or three of each kind! I think my mindset lately has been that it won't hurt me, I just won't lose any weight. So I really am going to try better this week. I can say no, there is no reason to take it. If I have to think about eating it, then I shouldn't eat it at all. I still have a treat once a day, but once and a small treat will be fine.

On a positive note, I am still eating healthy when it comes to drinking only water and eating whole grains instead of white bread. If I have the option of low-fat, I take it. I think this is really helping, but it's the sweets that are setting me back. (Every time I say sweets I think of the chocolate cake my grandma had wednesday night. I had two pieces and it was SO good. Even though it's good, it's not helping me get to my goal. I just need to remember that). I thought this was my positive section? :) We can be so hard on ourselves, huh?

Anyway, that's the update. I know I can work on the sweets and I am trying to work out my schedule to include exercising. This week I will work on a plan and report on it next week. Thanks Michelle for checking up on me! love ya!

Wii Active

I haven't been exercising for like a week and a half. Jared asked if I planned on using the Wii Active game again. At first, I was like, it was so hard! Then I remembered why I quit it in the first place. I can't do it because I exercise when Ryan is napping and he sleeps right below where I would play the game. It is extremely loud in our bedroom underneath. That was my reason for running instead. So I feel bad I am not really using it, but I will start it up again once we move. For now, I need to keep on running.

Also, I just wanted to point out that I may be under my prepregnancy weight, but technically I think I have lost more fat than that. See I am breastfeeding and these things are HUGE. If they were normal size, then I would probably see more of a drop on the scale. :) Just thought I'd point that out. :)

Weight Lost

I weighed myself today and I am at 139! This is awesome, but I am not sure how I did it. I took a break from exercising and eating completely healthy this last week and decided to start fresh today. (I didn't start today either. Just too tired! I need to make sure I follow my goal of going to bed early with the baby.) Anyway, I am not sure why I lost weight, but I'll take it! :)

Also I have this way cute white maternity skirt that works for when you're 6 months pregnant or under the belly. I was still wearing it for church and yesterday I put it on and it was too big! I was so disappointed! and then I thought, why am I disappointed?? That's a good thing right! :) It is a cute skirt though and I guess it will be another year and a half before I can wear it again. :)

Vacation = Packing on the Pounds

We went to Island Park this weekend with Jared's family and I ate horribly, exercised none, and I am sure broke every single one of my rules. Actually, I drank water mostly and only had one Fresca. Oh and maybe half a mountain dew on the way home that I am paying for because Ryan is so fussy. Anyway, I really have to get a hold on my weekends, home or on vacation. Tomorrow I am going to weigh and measure myself. Should be exciting after the weekend I had. :)
