"Running Off the Flab"-Gen Toki
So I've decided that it's time, time to get my big booty in shape. Since I have transferred home from Linfield, I have gained 15lbs!!!!! Although I don't necessarily look like I've gained that much, I have. I've been reading an old friends' blog, "Running Off the Flab" and have been inspired to get back to being healthy. I have a wedding coming up in 9 months along with the rest of my life.. imagine that! So, with exercise, eating healthy and a TON of discipline, I'm hoping to not only get back to my old weight, but to lose an extra 2-5lbs ON TOP of my 15lbs. My goal is to get down to 128lbs by March-ish (if you do some simple math you can probably figure out about how much I'm weighing now...). I'm not entirely sure how I'm going to do this as far as details go, so a little advice would be MUCH appreciated =) I figure if two of my friends that have recently had babies can get down to their old size... there should be nothing stopping me, right? I LOVE ice cream, so I can possibly start to replace that with chocolate slim fasts when I'm having a craving. No more Frenchfries, oh how I crave those late at night! I need to buy some brown rice and eat lots of raw veggies (which luckily I love) and drink a crap ton of H2O. Another downfall, I love carby foods, like homemade bread and noodles. I'm trying to figure out a way to motivate myself to workout at home when I have the twins, because lets face it, motherhood takes a lot of energy out of you, and once it's their bedtime, you definitely feel like it's yours too. And they are up by 7am and sometimes we are up at 530am on Tues/Thurs when I have school early. So, if any of my readers have any good tips, anything at all, please feel free to send them my way! I don't want to do a crash diet or a "specialty" diet, the point of being healthy is making "life" changes, things that I can do for the rest of my life, not just a few month period. So "stay tuned" as they say for more updates on my life, the twins, wedding plans as well as my new adventure to being fit, again.
