Divine Intervention

You may have noticed that there have been no "Weight Watching" updates lately. That is becuase . . . .

. . . . I've been gaining weight!! Sucky!

I want to work out SO bad but can't justify it when I spend 9 hours a day away from the children. By the time they are in bed, I am tired and want to spend senseless television time.

Let me highlight some of my recent activities.

This is me playing in the yard with babies instead of working out:


This is me shamelessly consuming a funnel cake at a carnival:


I also emotional eat at work a lot because I miss my babies. I was 10 pounds heavier than 6 weeks after I had the babies.

I say was, because Jesus decided I need some help controlling my pleasantly plump ass.

Last Friday, I went to the emergency room with gastritis. It was very bad pain, although now I compare c-section pain to everything and nothing was worse than that (although that wasn't normal so don't let it scare you). Long story short, I have to take meds 30 minutes before each meal and my diet is BLAND. I eat white rice, white bread, canned fruit (can't have fruit with seeds and skin), and meat with no seasoning.

I have lost 3.7 pounds in 6 days with no working out! Yay!! Forced starvation is best for me, otherwise there is no self control up in this hood! I thought about buying a Twix for a snack, but then I remembered I would be in awful pain, so I stopped myself.

The high of easy weight loss has caused me to want to put in an effort. We are moving my elliptical machine upstairs in front of the TV so I can combine senseless TV watching with working out once the babes are in bed.

We'll see how it goes! I'm also signing up for a half marathon and hubby said he would do it with me, which I am so excited about. I will probably have to walk most of it and won't come in at my 2:20 time of the last half marathon (13.1 miles), but it's the thought that counts.


  1. Oh, dear. I understand. Last year, I moved the treadmill to our master bedroom in between the bed and the windows. I can look at the tv or outside. Although it's kind of yuck having a treadmill in your bedroom, it sure is an easy way ot remind yourself to excercise. You are still beautiful and WILL come off, eventually.

  2. I highly recommend Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred video. It's only a 20 minute workout (kicks your butt at first, but I love the idea of a good workout in only 20 minutes a day.) Go into my FB photo albums and find the Shred folder to see my weekly progress for the 30 days.
    I am so sorry about the gastritis... at least you have found a silver lining to the cloud!

  3. LOVE the photos! They are so adorable! Good luck with the weight loss!

  4. Good luck! It's so hard to find the time to exercise, but I'm desparate to try Zumba. It looks like so much fun!


Thanks for stopping by! Sorry, no anonymous comments, if you can't put your name on it it's just no fun!
