Weight Loss update.

So I'm a bad girl and forgot to update you all! Oops! I am down another 1.8lbs. Very SLOWLY crawling along. I have a 7 month old as you know and the whole lack of sleep thing is making me lag. Excuses aside I NEED to step it up. So now, not only do I do hip-hop tuesday nights, but I have sworn to do crunches on commercial breaks while watching my shows (American Idol, House, Medium, 30 Rock -right now-). I did about 150 last night while watching Michael Jackson: Ghosts on Much More Music. Not too shabby eh? Anyone have good tips for boosting your metabolism?

Weight Loss progress

I am reading Jen Lancaster's "Such a pretty Fat" for the second time and have been inspired to start tracking my weight loss progress via my blog! I think having to track it on here will motivate me better!

I have a 6 month old baby and had gotten up to 222 LBS by the end of my pregnancy because I had Oedema:
oedema, edema [ɪˈdiːmə]

n pl -mata [-mətə]

1. (Medicine / Pathology) Pathol an excessive accumulation of serous fluid in the intercellular spaces of tissue
I am now 178.8Lbs and my goal weight is 135Lbs. I want to look healthy not skeletal!
I joined Spark People today which is a website that helps you track your calorie intake, fitness/ calories burned and weight lost.
I take Hip Hop with my daughter every Tuesday for 1 hour and usually do Pole Fit as well but won't be this month because taking Hip Hop instead.
Will work out at LEAST 15 mins a day (cardio), possibly longer, while baby naps.
It's time to take my body back! I will track my progress weekly starting 1 week from today! Saty tuned for updates!!!

2010 - The game plan

So 2010 is upon us and I know everyone is vowing to get thin, get that job they always wanted, see the world and what not. For me? 2010 is going to be about friends and family. I want to examin burnt bridges and grudges. I want to weigh the reasons for these and see if they are more important than the relationship with each person associated with them. Life is way too short to harbour bad feelings, especially when the issues at hand are not all that inmportant in the bigger picture we call life.

Saint Jerome said "The friendship that can cease has never been real." I hate to think that I wasted time or heart on relationships that seem to have never been valuable either to myself or the other party to it.

Can we forgive and forget? Can bygones be bygones? Do we sacrafice countless years to one stupid event?

I guess we'll find out won't we?
