Alright, I hit the 140's (which sounds awesome but it's actually 149) and then nothing so I gave up for a week.  Literally started eating sugar like I never would again.  Bad.  So I have to recommit myself to finish this.  I still want to do it by March 16th.  That is when Sophie will be 4 months and that would also be half of the time it took to lose the weight I gained with Morgan.  I realize that may be overly optimistic, especially since I don't understand my body while nursing.

I wasn't able to find my nutrition and exercise plan that I did in 2007 when I had a consultant of my own so I was doing it by myself, which totally worked, don't get me wrong.  However, I think that I would benefit from the structure of the plan I used then.  So I called Total Health and Fitness and actually asked if they would help me login since I couldn't remember my login information.  They totally did.  I forgot how effective asking can be.  So anyway, here is my first week's plan.

Nutrition:  I will be adding one more 200 cal meal since I am nursing.  If you use this, you're probably okay to do it exactly, unless you are nursing too.

  1. It looks like you're committed to me :)planning is half the battle! You can do it.

  2. I really should write out my food, just makes it easier to stick to! Looking forward to your post this week, I haven't read it yet 😊

    1. I usually don't do a lot of abs. I make sure that my core is tight when I do the other lifting. You can't see ab muscles until you're like 19% body fat so although it is important to have a strong core, I don't really focus on them.
