Party Pooper

I learned a couple different lessons this weekend....

#1: Don't set diet goals the day before my son's birthday party....its a disaster waiting to happen!

#2: If there is any birthday cake left over, throw it out, freeze it, give it away...feed it to the birds...just as long as it isn't within my reach!

#3: Exercise only happens if I do it before I do anything!

This is IT!

Man alive! I suppose I have neglected this blog! I am happy to say that I didn't neglect my fitness during this last pregnancy, though. I only gained 19 lbs during pregnancy. Minus the weight that I still am carrying from nursing (they say 2-5 lbs), I am pretty much back to my pre-pregnancy weight and have been for 6 weeks now. Isn't that awesome????

My goal now is to get back to my pre-pre-pregnancy weight, in other words, before Jackson! The scale has been stuck since I weighed in 6 weeks ago. It stays between 157 lbs and 159 lbs. I am eating fairly decent. But, I know my body and I know I need to get moving in order to loose this weight. So hear I go, starting a new program. this time, I am going to start the Winsor Pilates fat-burning program ("Win in 10"). I bought the program a few years ago and used the DVD, but not the entire program. So, here's to trying something new!

So, I weighed in this morning at 158 lbs. I will be taking "before," "during," and "after" pictures. Here are my not-so-flattering "before" pictures:

I will update every week with a weigh-in and a new set of "during" pictures.
