Babies, Binges, and the Brightside
Well, this post is going to be a little all over the place because I have a lot of randomness on my mind.
Also, if you’re here from IComLeavWe, please click here for my welcome post!
1) My best friend in CO
had her beautiful baby girl on Friday night in an at home water birth (she was the one who I talked about here
b/c it was an “oops” pregnancy that sort of rocked me).
It didn’t go completely according to plan (though she did still get to give birth at home!), but at 6:59pm on July 23rd, she gave birth to a healthy, 6#4oz baby girl.
Lily & Mommy are doing great – I am so incredibly happy for them! Now to get working on making a playmate for her…
2) A woman named Nico
found my blog and starting commenting on the archives, and in paticular, she commented on this post
about my weight loss struggles and it made me realize I should probably give y’all an update on everything.
I stepped on the scale this morning and throughout the course of July, I have managed to go from 153# to 159#. UGHHHHHHH. Too many weddings & back yard BBQs with beers and braghts and skipped workouts. I need to get back on course, and I really need to do with without
falling into the whole binging/bulemia trap. My low about a month ago was 151.8 (20.2# down with only 9.8# to go
) and I want to get back on that track to my 142# goal – ASAP. I need to not be crazy (don’t want to negatively affect my fertility chances) but I need to get back on track.
This morning I entered my weight into myfitnesspal.com and I’m going to start religiously tracking my food again and getting my butt out of bed for workouts every morning. I want to limit myself to a few set meals for awhile while I get back on track so I’m not tempted to binge…that never seems to end well for me.
3) The brightside is that I have an incredibly wonderful & loving husband and we do lots of fun things together. Last weekend we took a 3-day rafting trip through Colorado/Utah with some friends to celebrate our 2nd wedding anniversary. It was such a wonderful time and I love that we are getting better about really getting out and enjoying our environment in beautiful Colorado!
