Join Me For Another 10 Weeks! This is the first week of ten weeks starting October 22, 2012

Hi folks! I'm at it again. I'm going for another 20 pound loss in ten weeks. I've recently had another baby, a little girl, she is now five months old and I'm ready to drop some weight.

Merry Christmas

13 1/2 weeks of 20 weeks

weight today: same

total lost: 9 pounds in 13 1/2 weeks

2 approx. 5 inch pancakes:250
2 tsp of Smart Balance light butter:30
1 tbl of syrup:35
2 sausages:140
about 1 cup of orange juice:90
handful of oatmeal with sugar and butter pieces: 60
total: 605

Today goal: Would like to get in some cardio. Want to no snack along the day and try to keep close to 1,400 calories.

Planned fitness: up-in-the-air

Note on picture: We went to my parents last night and she served these dates that were split in the middle and stuffed with pecan pieces. Not sure I've ever ate a date. The were very good. But I have a feeling they are high calorie. I estimated one piece to be about 30 calories.

Merry Christmas

I'm actually feeling a little odd to be taking the time to write a post on Christmas day. But for this particular Christmas we don't have a lot planned for the day except to hang out at home and relax.

That has not always been the case in years past. But it's a nice option to not have to load up all the kids and go somewhere. We did go somewhere last night, however.

My husband is home and everyone is just relaxing and watching Christmas cartoons. My husband fixed pancakes this morning, so I departed from my regular fare of oatmeal and tea and skipped my mid-morning snack to make room for calories for pancakes and sausage and orange juice.

I'd like to try to test out my knees today with a run, but the weather outside is crappy. There is snow on the ground but it has been raining off and on. We'll have to see. Otherwise I suppose I could try jumping jacks, push-ups, bar dips...abs..ect. :)

Well, I your all having a good Christmas today!

Merry Christmas!!
