I'm sorry, but isn't his little hiney SO cute?!
Well, every Sunday night, one of my good friends and I get together to discuss how we want to get healthy, not only for us, but for Eli and for her future kids. We laugh because we do a whole heck of a lot of talking (one Sunday we were having this discussion over a scrumptious Whataburger meal) but the week will go by and nothing has changed.
It's even more annoying than that though because when we decided we were going to lose weight before and made some changes, we did awesome! I mean, we were smoking hot! :) But, we let a few things slide, I had a kid, and that's that.
So, we finally made a "plan" I guess you could call it, and titled it "Drop 10 Pounds for Eli." hahaha... that makes it seem really dramatic and over the top, but what we're trying to say is "drop 10 pounds before Eli's 1st birthday" which is December 18.
I'm back into my old clothes and have been for awhile, but things are most definitely NOT the same. I'm good with change, but I'm not good with the complete lack of self control. There will be no crazy measures taken (unless you count us not eating any type of chewy candy for two months straight...), just good food and exercise.
Basically we have to work out for a minimum of 45 minutes, 5 times a week (before Sunday night). We have to log our food. We can't eat chewy candy or fried food. And we can't lie.
This morning was so beautiful when I left for work. Our camera just does not do it justice.
