Sorry that I've been MIA. I pulled my back out and have been really unable to do much. Of course, I've used this as an excuse to get off my healthy eating plan. Any excuse, right?
Well, now that I'm getting back to normal there are really no excuses. Not sure exercise will be on the agenda for another few days, but I should be able to at least eat on plan.
How are the rest of you doing? Any losses to report?
-Welcome! It's great to have you. Are your kids in school at all, or are you with both of them all day? I'm sure you've tried all types of things to make exercise work. I know I have. I've found that the only options that work for me are: 1) waking up extra early and exercising before they wake up; 2) exercising during DD's nap (she still takes one); 3) exercising at night after she goes to bed. For me, I always ignore the alarm and go back to bed, so the first option never works. I never manage to exercise during nap because I try to get other things done. So, the only thing that's worked for me is nighttime exercise. Unfortunately, I'm often lazy by that time, so I can't even say that it's really worked consistently for me.
If your 5-year-old is in school, the other option you have is taking the 3-year old with you in a jogger stroller while walking. Or, consider a gym membership to a place htat has child care. You can put the kids there for an hour when you work out.
It's just so hard, I know.
--You are on a roll! Good for you. Congrats on the awesome loss. Maybe you can help provide some motivation for the rest of us. What finally clicked for you that has allowed you to be so successful this time? How do you just keep doing it and keep going when it's so easy to give up?
--welcome to you too! How's WW going for you? Sounds like you've had success with it before, so I'm sure you'll do great this time around. I'm sure you have your own challenges with 18 month old twins. Keep us posted on how it's all going.
welcome to you as well! How's WW going for you? Were you able to get back on track. I hope so. Another twin mommy, huh? I'm sure you and caryanne can share tips on that. Hope you had a great bday.
So, would anyone like to commit to checking in daily with me? I'm hoping that doing so helps keep me on track a little bit better. Anyway, I plan to do that and I'll report my food/exercise for the day. Hopefully you won't get too sick of me.
Take care all.
