Mayday, Mayday!

Let me first say, to anyone who works outside of the home, has kids, and manages to find time to stay in shape, hats off to you!



I told myself that I would never go back to being 140 or more. I am not surprised that I am just a couple pounds away from 140 now. I was in great shape over the summer. I was training and because of that, I could eat like a pig and not see any results. One hundred and thirty three pounds felt great! Well, I am lucky if I get on the treadmill three times a week now, but it's been hard to change my eating habits. Running was my outlet...so was shopping. The first is difficult because of the schedule that I keep and the second is out of the question. My outlet has seemed to shift to snacking. I am sure it doesn't help to have a diet that consists of a lot of carbs...it's cheaper that way.



It's not like me to just sit back and watch my waist size (or for me, it's more like my thighs) increase in circumference. I made a pact with Hol and I figured that if I write about it for all to see, that would be added accountability. Gotta get rid of these pesky four extra pounds!

4 things to add:

I work outside of the Home... I have a Kid... I stay in shape... Does it matter what shape it is?

Oh gosh. I wish that I could get BACK to 140. We'll have to give the kids to Dan and Rich and work out over the holidays :) This baby weight is not wanting to come off!

Wait...could I be in on this too???

P.S.-I would LOVE to be 130 anything! But I would look unhealthy right??? LOL!
