I weighed myself today and I'm down 30 lbs! I only gained aprox 20 lbs while pg with Emma so I have managed an extra 10 off of that. Trust me I'm not doing anything right now...just that I get full fast, drinking tons and tons of water (my guess is I'm getting about 14 glasses in at least I'm going to count tomorrow), and Emma's a nursing maniac! :) I'm hoping by next March to have another 30 lbs off if not more. I have a couple friends that are supposed to come in March and I'd love to be smaller than the last time they saw me which one saw me when Jack was 20 months old and one saw me when Jack was 7 months old. I'm going to jump back onto the weight watchers plan here in a few weeks when I can think a little better and not feel so drained. I'm thinking after I have my 6 week check up. Once I do I'll start my weight loss journal back up, so I have a place that I can be accountable at.
My friend Bobbie and I are going to start walking together every day. She's actually already walking everyday/evening so I'll just join her. She's walking 2 miles a day, I'm probably going to start off with 1 mile and work my way up. I know I can do 4 laps around the track, can probably do more but I'm not going to beat myself up if I can't. I also want to start going to the gym, it'll just be finding the time for it. I do have things right here at home (hand weights and my gazelle) that I can use to work out with, but the gym obviously has a lot more for me...but since I won't be leaving Emma I can only go during certain times at the gym although I can't take her with me into the weight training room, but they have some eliptical machines and bikes hooked up for mom's of tots to work out on (child has to be in a carseat or stroller), and since I homeschool not like the boys go anywhere...so I may just have to wait for the weekends and go when Chad's home and talk to the gym director and find out if I can still bring Emma with me, if not the gym will be out.
Oh on another note, I wasn't sure how we were going to do PWOC and Jacob since during the "school year" they don't provide anything for school age children and our chaplain is NOT homeschool supportive at all. Well Chad said that Jacob can go to work with him on Wed mornings, which Jacob is thrilled about. I'll have his school work packed up in a backpack and he can work on his school while there for those 2 to 2 1/2 hrs. I was also talking to a friend who's homeschooling for the first time. Her son is going to take the babysitting course that's required here on post for kids to babysit and she said that once he's taken it (he has to be 12 and he's 11 right now) that Jacob can go to their place for those 2 hrs. She lives about 2 or 3 minutes from the chapel and it's just across the road from Chad so that will work great as well! God has worked this out everytime since Jacob became too old for childcare at the chapel and I'm so thankful as I truly depend on PWOC to give me a refresher in the middle of my week, it gets me focused on Christ, his word, and fellowship with other Army wives. I truly feel it's one of the places God wants me to be and if it's ever a place he doesn't want me to be he'll close that door. In the mean time though, I'm just so thankful! We actually are on break from PWOC until September which is working perfectly for me with having Emma, taking a break from school, etc! We'll start school up in September.
Ok I'm exhausted so I'm going to bed now. I'll try to add a few new pictures tomorrow or Tuesday.
