Where have I been for the last month. Well, when you I last wrote I was starting the ME diet and things were going relatively well.
Then we went on a surprise trip to Disneyland a few days after Christmas. We had a blast! We walked about 20,000 steps a day and while I enjoyed a churro I was fairly careful about what I ate.
We came home on new years eve and I set a New Years Resolution that night to not eat fast food for a month. I am not a fan of fast food, but it can be easy at times. I had gotten in a bad habit and well, my waist line was paying for it. I can say 17 days into the new year and I have not gone to fast food once. In fact, yesterday was the first day I even went to Starbucks which is a first also for me.
I started a new at home business with Perfectly Posh, in an effort to stay home with my little one longer and avoid the corporate world as long as possible. I was using the products for over a year and half, so I decided it was time to join their team. Do me a favor and like my Facebook page. :)
I joined two Dietbets to help motivate me to keep working on losing the weight. However, the balance between dieting and nursing a child is difficult. I seriously don't know what I need to do to lose more weight. I lower my calories, I up my calories, I walk more, I run a little - I get my workouts are not intense but what is going on. I am frustrated but I am not giving up. I will continue to work on it and figure this out. I am not ready to wean yet, but I want this weight gone.
I have completed physical therapy for my IT band and it is feeling great. I have started running, abiet slowly again building back up to a 5K and beyond.
I think that it brings everyone up to speed on me, hope to blog more soon.
