One month since my son was born - in some ways it has flown by. I am feeling much better and I'm really looking forward to being active again, it's just finding the time with two kids under two years old that is going to be the challenge! But I know I have to make a commitment to making myself a priority, which means I find the time somehow. Walking in the neighborhood pushing a double stroller will be one way to get some exercise!
I've been watching the Biggest Loser this season and while I find it inspirational I also know the way they do it is unrealistic. I will be happy to lose 1-2 lbs a week on average. The big thing for me is making lifestyle changes that I can live with. I am worried about my eating habits the most. With my hudband overseas I don't tend to cook dinner for myself that often which means I turn to convenience food. I know I have to have good food in the house, but I also have to make sure I eat regularly - sometimes I get so busy with the kids that I forget to eat for hours or I just snack on whatever I can grab. And for some reason I can't even think of good food ideas right now - I don't even know what to make for myself that is healthy and easy. I have to find a few good recipes that I can rely on. Luckily, my daughter loves fruit so I always have fruit in the house for snacks. It's lunch and especially dinner that I'm blanking out on. Give me some ideas!
