All my life, I have been a "Skinny Minnie". I was born 4 lbs 9 oz. and stayed underweight until way after I was married. I was totally okay with that. Then I had Nathan and stayed around 135 for a long, long time. Then, I got pregnant with Sophie at 138 and stayed there until I was 6 months along and then the weight creeped up..and up....and up.
I weighed myself on Monday (the 7th of May) and realized "HOLY CRAP! I am 180 pounds!"
So, today marks the first day of the diet & exercise from hell.
I like food. I like to eat. I know I eat more than I should and later than I should, but I like food. I just am not good with portion sizes. I used to like exercise. Hell, I used to be a fitness instructor and personal trainer. Well, technically, I am still knowledgeable in these things, I just let my certifications lapse when I had Sophie. I just don't do it anymore. You know the deal: I don't take the time to do it!
Anyway, I kinda freaked last week and realized that it was time to do something. Sure, I joined the Move More, Eat Well movement with Cathy Zielske at the beginning of the year, but I have fallen off the wagon. I think I LOST the wagon, forget falling off! Ha! How could I let myself gain so much weight?!?! I guess it is easy when you aren't paying attention and wear comfy clothes all the time. Crap Happens.....
So, here I am, Cyn M, getting serious about this....again.....
Starting Weight as of today: 181 lbs. Here we go again! Time to get to work!
Until Next Time,
