Rainy day today so we can't go outside. Went for a 30 minute walk yesterday. 15 minutes in beibs started screaming. She's been so difficult lately I cannot do anything.

I may do a Jillian Michaels DVD later. I'm also thinking of turning this into a food blog. May start tomorrow, today was not so favorable. (;

No exercise today

I did not exercise at ALL today. In fact, I ate 3 pieces of the most amazing pizza. Oh it was good. I am under no false illusions as to why the numbers aren't budging.

Tomorrow it is only supposed to be in the 80s, definite walking day. Today was 99, yesterday was 105. Miserable! No a/c in the car, either, so we can't really drive to the mall to be one of those mall-walkers, either.

We're in the process of looking for a new car, around 3k. I had no idea how fun and how annoying looking for a car was.

I didn't exercise today except for maybe 5 minutes in the pool. I do not care. I also had ice cream and chicken strips for dinner. It was 105 degrees. I didn't feel like cooking anything and ice cream was...a bad choice. It's like it curdled in my stomach or something, ick.

Maybe a walk tomorrow morning.

My sister let a wasp in my house. I thought I killed it on the sink but I can't find it...I really dislike my sister right now. I hate wasps.


Not feeling creative, at the moment. Yesterday I went swimming, again. Today I plan on going swimming..again, as long as my sister comes along. If not, I may not go. I haven't decided yet. It's balls hot outside so walking with the baby may not be an option. If that doesn't happen, it looks like my other choice is random circuits in my house.

I'm no good at titles.

So I went swimming for..around an hour total today, maybe an hour and a half. I went around 7PM by myself and left after 15 minutes. I felt like a lost duck swimming in circles while everyone else was splashing around.

I was going to go for a walk after the biebs went to sleep but she has decided sleep is not for her. I went from having a baby to a very..obstinate toddler over night. She's not even 14 months old yet and she's throwing tantrums and crawling away when I try to change her, yelling and refusing to eat when she doesn't get her way. What the fuck happened? This truly did happen over night. I have no idea how to deal with it because I'm completely blindsided.

Either way, it's getting rather late now and we're trying church in the morning so a walk just isn't fitting into my mommy deprogramming for the night.

Had I gone for a walk, this (well, that? the song above) is the song that would have been repeat. It makes me feel like skipping 5 miles and then rolling around in a field of sunflowers.
Went swimming for an hour and a half today. I'd say maybe 45 minutes of that was me actively swimming. Came home and ate some pizza. HAH!

I'm planning on taking the biebs for a walk in a few minutes. I think it's supposed to rain later so I'd like to get outside again before it does. I love summer.

Tomorrow we are checking out a church and then going to a Christian music festival, so lots of walking around. I wonder if they sell baby ear plugs?


Yesterday we went swimming for about 20 minutes before the sun started to go down. I didn't exercise more after that, though we were out and about all day I don't consider that exercise.

Today I plan on spending the day at the pool, if the weather allows. We found a floaty for the biebs that works great, it's like she's sitting in a floating exercauser, minus the toys. If we can spend an hour and a half there, that'd be great. If not, I'll just go by myself though that's significantly less fun than going with my little family.

Took pictures at the pool yesterday. Gotta say, ew, ew, and more ew. I don't know if posting them would help more with my accountability, or less because it would cause me to want to crawl into a dark hole more.

One - exercises

Went to the pool for an hour. I probably did about 20 minutes of swimming total. We left because S/O has to go to work and some little kids kept splashing my baby in the face. Really? I get you're having fun, but you really feel the need to splash a 13 month old in the face and laugh? Assholes. Yeah, I called them assholes. Especially the meek parents who you could barely here tell them to stop.

Had some watermelon and will be giving the baby a bath now as she is covered in lasagna. I have 40 more minutes left to fulfill my goal for today, and I intend on taking a nice stroll and doing some kettle bell exercises.

Let's so far I've eaten:

-A cheesestick
-A handful of chips and natural salsa
-A pepsi throwback
-A bowl of cereal
-2 nectarines

The beibs is still sleeping. Once she wakes up I plan on going for a long walk. Then while she's eating dinner I'll do some floor exercises. Lunges, push ups, sit ups, squats, et cetera.


I've been a part of the digital age for awhile now. I'll always be an internet kid, so I guess it makes sense that the only way I can achieve goals is to blog about it for accountability. Narcissism or the age in which we live?

It's been 13 1/2 months since giving birth. Thirteen months ago I envisioned myself to be svelte, in a bikini, with long flowing golden hair. I don't know why - I was never fit to begin with, though looking back at old pictures of myself I truly wish I would have been less harsh while looking in the mirror. I'd give my left pinky toe to look like I did 2 years ago.

Here I am. Blogging to, who? Whom? Anyone? Regardless I'll be here, blogging about my weight loss journey, my exercise habits, and why sweating is really, really annoying.

I'll start today, with a goal of exercising every single day for at least one hour. Is that ambitions or not enough? We'll see. I took up jogging earlier this year and for some reason I just stopped. I think I lost my iPod and didn't feel like running without it, and once the baby took it out of her hiding place I never started running again.

Today's goal, one hour of exercise. I may go swimming today, provided it doesn't rain, though it looks fairly windy so I think I'll stick with power walking.
