Ok, that's it, no more messing around....

Ben is almost eight months old and I'm still not getting anywhere on shedding the post-preg poundage. Not cool.

This fricking cold and ear infection is now the only thing in my way. Once I kick this, it's on!

Yesterday I used my WalMart gift cards from Christmas to get myself a fancy new digital scale that records my weight AND weight loss automatically. I've already got my start weight in there and it's no bueno.

I have all these excuses for why I'm not doing better for myself...the kids, the housework, the lack of time, the weather...it's all bullshit.
I have time, I put off housework for lesser reasons (like blogging), I have a Jeep stroller that the boys can strap into and run the park with me, I have exercise equipment at home for bad weather days....
I've just been lazy, dreading working out and all that. But enough is enough. I'm not happy with myself at all, and it has to stop.

So, yeah, that's that.

No kidding chica, you need to get your ass moving! (LOL) Just kidding. It is hard to get motivated to do something OTHER then your daily house work and child care.. but in the long run I have felt soooo much better and after a good run in the morning I am ready to tackle the rest of it.

I have another double stroller that all 3 girls could probably fit in... or we could walk while Elizabeth is in school... I could meet you at the SL park once in awhile.

So.. girls night out??

That would be awesome! Right now I'm totally incapacitated but next week for sure!
I had to answer the phone and sounded like a frog.

I feel your pain and I want to encourage you. You can do it! Just gotta keep at it and sneak in exercise whenever you can. I have a friend who does stair steps and lunges while we're at the park with the kids, and does squats while she's brushing her teeth. I'm on a mission to lose 15 more pounds by my birthday (and it's coming up) so we can be diet and exercise buddies.

Awesome! I need all the people I can get to be poking me to get moving!
I drove Bits to school, came home and the boys were sleeping in the car, so I said, fine.
This is the universe telling me "work out now!"
So I got the gazelle set up and did a half hour, almost two miles, before the boys woke up.
Take THAT sickness!

Dh and I did body for life program after alex was born and it worked awesome so we are slated to get started again with that on Monday. I am getting ready to post some heinous before pictures on my blog as some super motivation LOL.

I just your On Like donkey Kong. Would it make you feel better if I put a ticker on showing how much I've gained? Or is it totally not motivating, since I'm supposed to be getting fat.
