So there’s been no change this week. I have started getting more h20 (about a Brita pitcher full every day) and I’ve been careful with what I eat but that’s only allowed me to maintain. I only managed to work out twice this week and it was just a quick run and a quick bike ride. Work is getting in the way of the gym right now. Hopefully that will stop and I can get back to it…

This coming week we’ll be sunning and funning at the beach and DH has designs on early morning runs with the pup in the sand so we’ll see what happens. We’re cooking at the house rather than eating out every night so that will help in controlling the calories. Being that I won’t be by a scale on Friday though, this post will be late next week (probably Sunday or Monday morning…) However, have no fear – I will post it at some point:)

Stats by the week:
Week 1 – 142lbs (7 weeks postpartum)
Week 2 – 138lbs – woohoo!
Week 4 – 140lbs – ouch…no excuses, I have a new workout regime and a new resolve for eating healthy…we should start seeing that number drop.
Week 6 – 139.5 – okay, .5 lbs! I attribute that to the fact that i’m putting on muscle and muscle weighs more than fat right??:)
Week 8 – 135 – Hallelujah! Real progress now! I don’t expect it will continue at this rate but we’ll see.
Week 10 – 134 – 1 lb…i’ll take it!
Week 12 – 133 – time to get back to counting calories:)
Week 14 – 132 – still not believing it but until i get a new scale, we’re going with it:)
Week 15.5 – 136.5 – taken on Monday (hence the .5 in 15.5 weeks) NOTE: this is on a new scale which disagrees with my old scale so we’re kind of resetting a bit.
Week 16 – 135.8 – if we look at Monday’s weight and today’s weight I’m doing good…almost a whole pound in 5 days
Week 17 – 135.8 – no change…hmph…

The Goal this week is to continue to try for more water and 3 morning runs on the beach.

Okay, on to making friends!

Here’s the regular Friday Follow – Ian’s group!


and a new one I’ve seen around:

Hello to all you new folks! I hope you find something here that you’ll want to come back over and over again for! This blog was started to keep the fam up to date on my first pregnancy and has continued after my little Noah was born. Topics range from smitten momma ramblings to hard hitting pieces about 529 plans and the like (haha…hard hitting..maybe not but it’s fun to dream that I could actually write something that could be considered hard hitting) and has a smattering of photography (of my little man of course) thrown in for fun.

Me? I’m an almost a 30 something (gah!) working mamma who would love to ditch her mortgage in order to stay home with little man but sadly bought when the housing market was at its peak and probably couldn’t even break even in the sale. Some day I dream of leaving the corporate world to do something more creative – like photography or crocheting!:) But for now amuse myself with hobby photography and blogging.

Anywho…glad to e-meet you and I hope you leave a comment to let me know you stopped by!

  1. Hi there! I found you through another blog and thought I’d say hello! Funny, our weights fluctuate right around the exact same weight! I am trying to lose a few pounds… I’d like to get down to 130, but man, it just gets tougher and tougher!!! It has never been this hard for me to keep my weight down! Anyway, I’ll follow along and hope you come by the Southern Institute to say hello!

    • I think it’s so hard because the weight I’m at isn’t all that far from my goal and aside from some extra pudge around the middle, I feel pretty okay so my motivation is lacking. In an effort to push myself again, I forced my wedding ring on my finger (it’s super tight and won’t come off again without some major effort) and said that my goal is to be able to get this off without that effort – meaning, i need to lose those last 10 lbs!:)
