Lets get Curvy PT3

I just have to say THANK YOU to all of you who commented on my last Lets Get Curvy Post, I am blonde and just barely figured out how to reply to comments...at least I think I did, correct me if I don't ever respond, its not my intention to do so.

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!

(I was 19!)

Keep up the good work! I like your openness about your weight loss journey. I tried the gym, but with two little ones it just didn't work. I find walking or running is the best exercise I can do now or videos online during nap time. And I'm sorry I haven't found you on FB yet. You could add me if you want since we're both here now :) It's under Ashley Fisher

I'm doing the 30 Day Shred and yeah, it can be tough on your knees, but she also dos modified versions of the exercises. I enjoy it, anyway, and I have bad knees and ankles!

I have bad knees and ankles as well! Usually if I walk longer then 2 miles they get sore. I think after I lose 10 more pounds I will buy the DVD. I know she has a yoga one too and I'd love to do that again!

I did the Biggest Loser 30 day jump start and lost 15 lbs I think. It tells you what to eat and how to exercise every day. Its really easy to follow and it works you up from whatever level you are currently at. It isn't too rough on your body and its amazing how you feel and how much better you eat and how you actually start to crave the good stuff. I would love to do it again but with two kids its hard to find the time to cook. When I'm not breastfeeding it'll be a little easier. For now I try to watch my portions and either play basketball with Scott or get out and walk at least a mile each night. Oh and I think there is a Biggest Loser 30 day jump start dvd too. Those are always good dvds because they have different modified versions and they really work you good. I used to do it during one of Charlotte's naps and it makes you sweat but I felt so much better. Anyway, congrats on the success you've already had!
