No Motivation

Last week I skipped one day.

One day turned into "why bother working out since I was going to Bear Lake and going to eat a lot anyway."

Then Brady decided to start waking up in the middle of the night again. Twice. At the same time, Ryan decided to start waking up at 7 am.

Let's just say I am tired.
And during the kids' nap time, I want to sleep too.

I know I need to be better. I know that I have so much to do and I can't do it unless I make a commitment everyday.

So here is my confession of my slacking off. I know I shouldn't wait for a good night's sleep, but hopefully tonight is the night. :) And I'll be back to working out tomorrow.

My First "Run"

I went running today!

This is huge news! :)

I finally got the new jogging stroller out of our front hallway. Once I put the kids in, I realized that one of the tires is a little flat so that made it a little harder to push. Because of this, I didn't run. I just went speed walking around my neighborhood. I went twice in the circle. We were gone for about 45 minutes. Not too bad, right?!

Ryan loved it! He loved pointing things out. When we walked by some houses that back our house, Ryan saw our back yard and exclaimed, "There's my HOUSE!" He was so happy to see our house! haha. I love him.

Brady did really well too! It was fun and I'm glad I went.
I just need to find someone with a bike pump. :)

My jogging stroller is AWESOME!

The sun shade moves so I can block the sun from going in the kids' eyes. Brilliant!

When we were all done, Ryan was all thumbs up.
Here is him saying, "Thumbs up, Dude!"

Next time I go will be either Saturday or Tuesday.

Oh and I'm also deciding to stop eating sweets for 5 weeks. I am just trying to decide if I want to stop today or tomorrow. I've already licked the lid off of Ryan's chocolate pudding. :)

On The Road Again...

I am back on the road to being fit!!

I started working out last week and have worked out for over a week now! Yay!

I am pretty proud of myself for sticking with it despite everything else going on. The only thing I need to do now is start running. I plan on running tuesdays, thursdays, and some saturdays. I haven't done it yet because I want to run with the kids but Brady hasn't been waking up early enough. I think a lot of it is just an excuse. Now that I have been working out to my Lindsay Brin DVD, I'm more into the working out vibe and I think I will be able to start running tomorrow.

Well part of my road to being fit is posting pictures of myself!

I am much more motivated seeing pictures of me now than seeing pictures of me skinny. Seeing pictures of me now makes me want to pick up a weight and go running immediately! haha.

Here is a picture from the last time I worked out (before I got pregnant with my miscarriage baby) and at 9 months pregnant with Brady and 40 pounds heavier. :)

Here is my first postpartum picture.

This is a picture of me not flexing. I know now that you need to learn how to constantly be flexing your tummy and your body will get used to it. But this picture is a reminder of how it looks when I'm not doing that. :)

I am now 145 pounds and my goal weight is at least 125. I would like to be 140 in just 6 weeks, if not sooner. I'll update my pictures in three weeks and I hope we see progress! :)
