Baby Fat

Ugggh... just came back from running.  Today is the 4th time this week that I went running and I'm pretty proud of myself.  I'm finally trying to lose the fat I gained while pregnant with BJ. It's weird.  I'm the same weight as when I got pregnant, but my body definitely does not look the same, lol. 

HJ told me not to post the fact that I'm trying to lose weight because then people will know and hold me accountable... but I think that's part of the challenge.  If I fail, well, everyone will know I did, and there are lots of people out there in the world who have failed at dieting at one time or another.... so I'm going to share my experiences with it.  Hopefully, the outcome is positive and not negative. :-)

The first day, I thought I was going to die.  I only made it half way down the road. How embarrassing, right?  Well, today, I made it all the way down the road! (And I'd like to think my street is long, lol) 

I think a large part of my problem is that I need to eat less desserts and food in general.  It's hard because now that BJ is eating table food, whenever I feed him, I take a couple of bites of his food... I just have to be more disciplined with the amount of calories I take in.  However, I'm taking baby steps and going with the exercise first. :-P


In BJ news... he had a fever all day yesterday and this morning, so I had to stay home from work to take care of him.  Before I had BJ, I wondered why teachers got 18 days of sick leave throughout the school year, but I realize now that it's for days when not only you get sick, but when your children get sick too. 

HJ and I don't know whether BJ has fevers from being sick or from teething, but either way his temperature was pretty high.  Don't fret though, it's all better.

*Side note: WeeMasonMan's Mom made a comment in my last post that there's a curse in the blogging world, and if I posted about BJ sleeping through the night, it's most likely he wouldn't anymore.  WEELLLL, after the fevers, BJ stopped sleeping through the night. HAHAH. (The laughing is for the curse, and not the fact that BJ had a fever.) Gosh darn, I wish I had known about the curse ahead of time. :-P Well, he seems like he's feeling better today, aside from being clingy, so I am hoping he will be sleeping right through tonight since I have to go to work tomorrow! I'm going to cross my fingers and hope he sleeps. 

Phew I went from no posts at all to severely long posts. lol. Bye bye all~

  3. Good for you!!

    I felt the same way when I first started blogging about my running adventures. Some days I feel bad for not keeping up with my goals, but my readers are great motivators!

    Sometimes I think to myself, I need to exercise because my readers KNOW I haven't been working out lately. Yeah, it makes me feel a bit guilty, but hey, it gets me to work out!

    Keep it up!
