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.
