Both of my toddlers are in the “Mom” phase right now. As I write this just imagine two toddler’s saying, “Mom, mom, mom look mom.” “Mom Henry has ouches…oh just kidding I just wrote on him with a red marker.” (washable). Mom, mom, mom, mom look I made a sword out of the markers. Now try to write…
My husband started building a train layout in our basement and to be able to afford everything he needs to make it; he has been working a lot of overtime, but it is coming along nicely.
Our house is never quiet. Someone always needs something. Which is why Nutrisystem is a very important part of my life, and I am so glad they will continue to work with me for another three months. My entire day is full of distractions. The dirty diapers, wrestling boys and endless housework used to leave me grabbing the wrong things, finishing my toddler’s food so it wouldn’t go to waste and stress eating. Nutrisystem has everything packaged for me, so I don’t have to think. I just look at the label’s breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack and I am good to go. You have no idea how much this helps me. There were days. I was so stressed out that I would just order in or tell the hubster we are going out to eat, but now eating out is planned in advanced and my food is always in arms reach and ready in a matter of minutes. My husband even pointed out the other day, “We never eat out anymore.” Ha! We went to Michaels Arts in crafts a few days ago and got a few holiday decor items and a couple of things for the layout and I told my husband wasn’t it nice to pay for something we get to keep rather than spend 40+ bucks at a restaurant.
Since July 5th I have lost 17.4 pounds on Nutrisystem and I have 79 pounds to go to reach a goal weight of 125 pounds. I am 5’1″. I only lost 0.4 pounds this week, but since I started Nutrisystem a week before my “lady time” comes it has always been a small loss so I am not going to worry about it.
This week I ordered two sports bras from Victoria Secret and I plan on starting a workout routine. I feel like this would really help move my weight loss along I just seem to have such a hard time finding the time. With my husband’s busy schedule and two very active little boys I feel like I get a workout everyday already, but I really want to start doing some cardio and Jillian Michael’s workout videos.

Next week I plan on writing a a detailed goal list and rewards. For example 20 pounds lost would be a mani pedi. Thanks for taking the time to read my post and follow my journey!
