Not sure what is up with that. I feel so tired lately and I am sleeping way too much because of it! And I am crabby... and no I can't be pregnant. So, I am going to see the doc about finding out if I may be low on iron or something. Oh well, if not I will chalk it up to busy mom syndrome and let it be.
Going to start on a bit of a weight loss time here. Not even so much a weight loss as a tummy tone and try to get trim time. So, this was all brought on by my very best friend in all the world, Heidi deciding to get married, asking me to be in the wedding, and us realizing that my dress will be 3 inches too small on the waist. So, prime opportunity to make what I have wanted to happen for a long time, finally happen. Also, I am so out of shape it is embarrassing. Pray for me if you could as this is going to be very hard for me. I am a compulsive over eater and have about a 2 second time period where I think about things before I indulge. I also am quite lazy when it comes to working out and do not like to give things up, including time. Although I say all this, I do not define myself by these terms so in this endeavour, I plan to shape up, eat right, exercise, and pray like mad! Would be great to have some support so here I am.
I shall give all the stats as I really don't care who knows what. Waist, hips and weight are what I am going to clock and I will have to weigh and measure every week to keep on track. I will do these all tomorrow night as I am too tired and lazy tonight to get my measuring tape or go upstairs to weigh myself.
The general idea is this
At 5 foot 5 and a half inches I can range from 114 pounds all the way to 152 pounds and be considered "normal" by your basic BMI measurements.
When I got married I was about 110 pounds. But I was a teenager and active and such. Then I got pregnant and the heaviest I got to was 170 pounds. Yeah I know, it is quite a bit but everyone has to gain something. After each baby I was able to take off a good percentage of the weight. When I was preggo with Joel I got to about 160 pounds and then the lowest I got afterward was about 135 pounds. It has been 3 years now and I am hovering around 140 pounds. Not bad! I am pretty impressed after having 3 cutie patooties!
Now 133 pounds would be right in the middle of the "normal" range and that sounds nice. But I am thinking that in the end of things my goal will be 125 pounds. Although for this wedding in October I am going to go for 130 pounds. This will be harder than it sounds, what's 10 pounds, eh? But I need to tone and get some muscle too so I am not just trying to get rid of fat. Now that is the tough part for me. And I want it to last!
So, my plan... turbo jam, as it is so awesome a work out and I don't have to leave the house.
I will try to jog but we shall see, I have a screwy hip from birth so I will walk if I can't jog. And I am going to up my veggie and fruit intake and take out chips all together (I hope). This is my one vice and will be very hard to give up. Also upping my water intake and cutting out coffee almost completely. I will drink tea instead I think.
There it is for now. I will do measurements and such tomorrow.
God bless you all!
