I have lost 15 pounds and it sorta stayed that way...Easter threw me off so bad since we had a friend from the USMC here and him and the Hubs wanted to work out together, and instead of me being a big girl and working out myself...I just didn't. Oops. So now I am paying for it.
I started taking some supplements from GNC to help boost my metabolism. I think I am going to need a tad bit of help. The Hubs has been very good at pushing me, especially since I have been sleep training Evelyn (a post later to come), I have been way too tired and haven't wanted to go. He let me have 1 day were I became a couch potato and then he said that, that was enough.
The Hubs is also a little out of shape as well...by Army standards anyways, and so he has been working out really hard. By him just doing that its giving me that extra push. I know he wants me to be healthy and I am pretty sure he is sick of me complaining about how fat I feel, so its been nice to have him here.
So far I walk 1 mile or more in the mornings and The Hubs and I take a 2 mile walk at night. I have yet to go to the gym in the morning, because I am honestly tired! Again...I will explain in another post another day but I also know its not an excuse. I know there are many more hours in the day.
I have done awesome at eating better! I have my 2 snacks a day to keep my metabolism going and healthy meals. I don't care what some people say about "rewarding yourself" and how "your not a dog", but umm I deserve a break sometimes. I don't mean dive into a tub of ice cream, although I have been craving bubblegum ice cream, I mean a few pieces of chocolate, or even a diet coke. I make sure that I achieve a goal before I even let myself take a mini break.
I have been thinking about doing Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred, but in reviews I have read to not do it in 30 straight days if you have overweight, since it can be hard on your knees. I would love to be at a good weight to do yoga again and last time I took yoga classes I hurt my knee, so I would have to take it easy doing that. But I also haven't done it! If anyone has done it please let me know so I can get a good idea on it!
Hopefully one day I will look like this again! I am aiming to lose 30+ pounds by August!
