Good Changes

Well I got on the scale this morning and did my measurements - =) Sadly I have not eaten well since my WI on Saturday and managed to gain about .4 for the month....But I did lose 2.5 inches! I was so happy to see those changes! My hard work at the gym is paying off and my body is starting to change. I was back at the gym today to keep this up. My eating was better today but still not back fully on track.

I am trying to cut back on pop. I have really noticed that if I do not have one in the evening I also don't feel the need to snack. This week I have really struggled with this. Hubby goes to school on Wednesday nights and my parents or inlaws come over and spend some time with Grace and I. They leave after bed time and I find myself scouring the house for something "bad" to eat while I sit quietly and watch whatever I want to on tv. This I need to conquer.

This week I am going to push myself for 4 visits to The 30 Minute Hit - I feel so much better after I have been. To help balance my time between me and my family. I was finding that working out after work made it less likely for me to cook a good meal for all of us and I felt like I was missing too much time with Grace. I have started working out Monday, Wednesday and Friday's at lunch and it feels so good. I am going to try and add Thursday after work to help really jump start things.


  1. Hi, I found your blog today. My story is kinda similar to yours. I was trying to lose weight when I got pregnant half way through. Now my weight is higher than ever and I am trying to start over again. :)

  2. Great job on losing those inches! It's so important to remember that the scale isn't the only measurement of sucess. I bet your clothes are fitting better, too! :)

  3. I think taking measurements is great just for this reason- the scale can be a hag sometimes, LOL! Do you have a plan for cutting back on the pop? Can't wait to see what February brings for you!!
