|Happy five month birthday little man!|
First of all, let me just talk about how honored I am to have you guys reading my blog! Two weeks ago I passed one hundred thousand views after starting my blog just two months ago… I'm now at 155,000 views! I love each and every one of you and appreciate your words of encouragement! I hope that I can continue to encourage you to reach your weight-loss goals, we all can do it!
Well… One hundred and fifty one point five pounds. 151.5 lbs. The best part about getting to this weight is the fact that I had been here before when I wasn't even pregnant. I gained a little weight while Sam and I were dating and there were one or two times (if I weighed at the end of the day) that I went over 150. However, I have jumped down from that weight to 130 at one time so it's so much more encouraging knowing that my goal is that much more achievable!
As you know, this month I went to the Bahamas and disregarded calories for a whole week. As a result I gained two pounds (up to 157). Totally worth the two pounds ;). I went on a juice cleanse (you can find the schedule and recipes here!) and I lost 4 lbs in 5 days thanks to the juice cleanse. So overall, in three weeks I lost 5.5 lbs… which I'm still pretty dang happy about!
My goal this next month is to make it down to 145 pounds. I'll be doing the same thing as I did to lose the other 48.5 lbs, clean eating, exercise, and keeping track of my calorie intake. This month I REALLY want to start improving on lifting weights and toning my body. I don't want to look "skinny fat" (yes, there is a thing!) I want to look "skinny fit"!!!
My friend below (Shailey Hill) delivered 3 or 4 months before me and she has done awesome at losing the baby weight. Her secret is lifting (and lifting heavy)! She has two littles and manages to get to the gym every morning at 5 am to get her work outs in… no excuses! She motivates me!
