Momentum is lacking

So, I have really been having a hard time getting back into exercise lately, and I really, really need to! I have had a few things keeping me occupied in the the evenings, so jumping on the elliptical is the last thing I want to do! But the worst thing is no running. I have 3 mornings a week where I am down to one kid, the perfect time to hit the track with the jogging stroller... and yet I have not done this once! I need to make sure I do this on Wednesday, I will not allow myself to fall back into my old habits.

On a good note though, all this moving and organizing of my house has been keeping the scale moving downwards! I made it under 140lbs Saturday to a crazy 139lb!!! I am now only 4lbs away from my first big goal! That is a whopping 43.4lbs lost. I am loving the way I feel, and yes the way I look. It is incredible just how much better I feel with this weight lost.

So, who's going to come and make sure I hit the track on Wednesday????

A little more fun!

Three months back I had a little fun one night (here's the link to that post), and tried on clothes that I had been saving to wear for when I lost weight again... well, I tried those clothes back on today. Guess what, they are all too big now! I knew this could be an issue, but a small part of me didn't think it could happen. I will now have to decide whether or not to alter these clothes to fit, or whether to donate them.

I'm not all that upset, as it give me a great excuse to do a little more shopping! My style has changed over the last 10 years, so some of my old clothes don't exactly fit who I am today. The fact that I love the look of the clothes out right now helps to ease the pain of getting rid of the stuff I saved.

Now to just get some child free time to shop!

I'm Back!

I can't believe it's been over a month since I posted! Life has certainly been crazy enough to keep me busy though. Survived living with my parents for the month, but was more than ready to leave when all was said and done. It's going to be a good week before the boys and I are totally settled in, but progress is being made.

The worst part about the transition time, was I did not get any exercise in at all!!! It felt really odd to not jump on the elliptical or head to the track each day, felt like something was missing. Tonight I finally got my butt in gear, and jumped on the elliptical. I have it set up rather nicely in the TV room, so was actually able to watch something while worked. That was a nice change as I had no music or TV when I worked out at the old house.

The bad part was only getting 35 minutes done, although that isn't too bad considering I haven't been on in almost 2 months.

Oh, I must be doing something right! During my little break, I did not gain anything. In fact, I have actually lost another 2lbs. Now to just get down to my goal, and see if I need to take it further or not.
