Eight and a half inches

Get your mind out of the gutter! Just got measured at iMetablolic and discovered I've lost eight and a half inches this month! WHOA. I know that has a lot to do with working out, eating right, drinking lots of water and getting enough (or as much sleep as a new mom can get) sleep. I'm thinking twice about sugary snacks, switching to red wine (that's just me trying to justify the wine drinking) and walking with the kids more! Ever had his birthday at Pump it Up in Reno and I did the obstacle course a few times and didn't die from exhaustion. It's working -- it really is!

New York is not easy

Oh my gosh -- the past few days have been TOUGH. New York is crazy, it's hard to find healthy food and it's easy to find pizza, hot dogs and steak. AWWWWW! So -- I've been here for about five days and I haven't done too bad, but I've been far from perfect and that's OK. The goal this week was maintenance -- make smart decisions, don't overdo it, it's okay to stray and don't let yourself feel starving. I kept my protein bars with me at all times -- they were the first thing I ate in the AM and I made sure to eat every few hours. It helped a lot but I am human after all and when restaurants like The Spotted Pig are calling my name it's hard to say no. I did alright this week -- but I know it's okay to fall of course a bit because I'm ready to jump right back on! It's about the long haul baby!
