1 lb!

That is what I have lost since I last posted. I'm trying not to get discouraged, but my anniversary is drawing near! I'm at 148.2. I would love to see those numbers start to drop!

After almost two months of being stuck at the same weight, I figure I need to step it up a bit. It is SO hard to be consistent with things like exercise and cooking healthy meals if you have two kids who are so inconsistent! Sometimes they will sleep through the night. Sometimes. Most of the time, one of them, or both of them take turns waking up. Or, they will wake up early in the morning if I get up matter how quiet I am. I was at church yesterday and a fellow new mom was asking how I get to exercise with a baby. Exercising at home is a ideal, if your kids let you. I have all the equipment I need to get the job done, except for the time. I told this new mom that each day, I get up and look at my day and try to schedule exercise for that day, depending on when my kids wake up, their dispositions. I try to have a happy baby (fed, napped, diaper changed), before I exercise. Jackson, my toddler, can usually watch TV while I exercise in the same room. I am always thinking on how I can make this work even though my life is so chaotic right now. It is a season. But, you can always make the best of the season. It hasn't been easy, but I'm going to try to be more consistent with exercise. Instead of 2-3 times a week, 4 to 5 times a week is my goal. It is getting warmer, so I plan to walk (armed with pepper spray, of course!). I just got a new workout DVD in the mail for toning exercises, so I plan to do that. We shall see it that breaks this plateau I have been stuck on for a while!
