Just checking in!!

You just have to know how happy/mad I am that I shared my weightloss goal here.  I am happy because maybe for once I will stick with it....because I have to. Because FAR to many people know. Then of course, I am mad for the same exact reason.

First week (all over it)
lost 2 lbs.
doing my exercises everyday
logging food

Second week (not feeling it)
weight is the same so far, but only a half a week into it
spent the first 3 days NOT exercising consistently and if I did, didn't log
didn't log food consistently
not motivated....until today that is

But this is typical. Typical of me.

Today got all three of my big girls together and did some strength training.

I feel good. I have a goal. I HAVE to stick with it.

Planning my meals. It is so much easier to succeed if you plan ahead.

Until the next update....

Oh and just for a little laugh...I was totally drinking iced coffee while doing my exercises. I am from the Seattle area people....that's how we roll!!


  1. Hello!
    I'm the mama to a rather large family myself, and I am now a follower of your blog. It's so nice to meet others who are "crazy" like me! (do you ever get that comment, that you are crazy for having so many kids? I actually have a blog post called WE ARE NOT CRAZY, which you can read in my ABOUT link on my blog :)

    Looking forward to getting to know you (and your family) better :)

    I just peeked over at your blog!! Our kids' names all start with A too!!!! We are soul sisters!! :)


  3. The best weight for you is the one you are comfortable with. However, there is such an important concept as 'healthy weight'. In order to achieve and keep it you have to develop healthy eating habits. I’ve read somewhere that even if you attend gym every day but keep eating junk food – you are wasting your time. Lots of useful advices on proper nutrition I have found here They provide special tips for women and lots of motivative ideas!
