Well, I said I would update the blog world on my progress once a month, so here I am. I am not going to take a picture because I still look the same.....Maybe I will take a picture every 3 months just to see if I look any different.
This last month has gone okay. I have lost 4 lbs, which is what I said I need to lose, so that was good. I have worked out 5 days a week for the last 3 weeks. (since Brayden was 6 weeks old) I have been trying to keep track of my calories and eat right, and did pretty good for a couple of weeks, then the last two I have kind of been slacking off and also not watching my portion sizes as well as I should. I have such a hard time reducing what I eat when I am breastfeeding. I am hungry all the time and snack on junk all day long, a big disadvantage to being a stay at home mom!
This next month I am going to try and make sure I have healthy low calorie snacks around for when I want a snack. I am also going to try and drink even more water so I maybe don't feel as hungry. I drink quite a bit anyway because breastfeeding makes me thirsty, but I would like to be better about constantly drinking water rather than waiting till I am thirsty. I also need to be better about not taking seconds at meals, I know this one thing could reduce the calories I am eating by 200-300 calories a day, but sometimes dinner (or dessert) just tastes so yummy I want more!
Okay, time for your participation: leave a comment and let me know what your favorite low calorie snacks are!
