And ready to get serious! I’m all our of excuses and who likes excuses anyway?
I literally have NO MORE EXCUSES:
-The “I just had a baby” excuse expired when she turned 1
-The “I’m tired” excuse expired when she started sleeping 12-13 hours a night
-The “I’m nursing” excuse is rapidly going away
IT’S TIME! I’m getting this weight off. 7 years ago I went from 200 pounds to 124 pounds. I did it sensibly and steadily. I did it by cutting out the sugar, eating whole foods every 2-3 hours, writing down what I ate, and exercising.
It technically starts tomorrow for me (October 1st) but I’m ready to basically start TODAY. I packed my food today, I’ve already had my breakfast, snack, and lunch. I AM having a not as healthy as I want it to be dinner tonight but that’s to get it out of the house and not waste the food and it’s actually not that bad. Tomorrow-it’s ON!
I’m also restarting P90X on Monday morning.
I put together a dinner menu for the month of October last night and think I’ll plan my lunches every week
A good friend sent me a great lunch bag yesterday that will be fun to pack every night after Lucy goes to bed.
I also bought a new crock pot last night because my current crock pot cooks WAY too hot and dries out all my meat. I looked at reviews for crock pots and that was common complaint. My new one has great reviews and 2 friends have it and agree. It should get her on Friday. A crock pot is the working Moms best friend 😉
Oh oh oh! Guess what else I’ve been doing? Knitting! I almost have a sweater done for Lucy. I went to knit night last Wednesday and will be going again tonight.
I guess Lucy turning 1 really gave me the kick in the butt I needed.
BTW-Hawii was AWESOME. Here are some pictures:
Our Hotel is off in the distance:

An example of the craziness that we hiked up and down (Shaun really is Super Dad!):
I mean really:

Lucy decided to feed herself:
Poipu Beach (We forgot our camera for our favorite beach):
Mommy really wanted a picture with Lu and Lu wanted NOTHING to do with it:
Then we got a cute one but evidently my husband only thinks Lu is worth taking pictures of (notice my face on the left side of the picture):
The view at the end of another hike:
This hike was in the pouring rain-that’s not sweat-it’s rain!:
The army family:
Me, Shaun, Lucy, and our Hawaiian friends (who we LOVE) Kelli and Jessica:
