The Reality

Finding motivation to lose weight and be healthy after having a baby is hard.  Unexpectedly hard.  All I want to do is snuggle my baby and spend as much time with him as I can.  I work from 8-5 and when I come home, I want to spend my time focusing on my son so that he knows that mama loves him.  However, I also want him to have a mom that is healthy and can keep up with him.  He's already trying to crawl at 5 1/2 months so I know this boy is going to be a mover!  And I don't want to be the mom sitting on the sidelines watching; I want to participate!

So I've enlisted help.  My sister and I are going to be doing weekly weigh-ins to motivate each other.  I'm going to focus on "making the better choice" and moving my body.  

Starting weight: 163 lbs

Weekly goals: 
  • Move:  Crossfit.  Walk. Run.  Whatever.  I just need to move 3X this week.
  • Eat: Clean eating, no fast food, limited treats and soda.  I need to kick my soda habit in a BAD way.
  • Weight:  I have some bloat from this past weekend.  I hope to weigh around 160 come next Monday.
I'll update you next week!
