Losing the extra pregnancy pounds is turning out to not be an easy thing for me. Next time I’m expecting, I don’t care how hungry I am…I’m sticking to a very controlled diet! Working out while pregnant would probably be a good thing too. I’ll admit that I wasn’t nearly as active as I should’ve been. I was working full time, and my husband was deployed. All I did was work until about dinner time, go home, eat, and then vegetate until bed time. I know ultimately it’s just an excuse, but I had no motivation to go work out. Also, there really was no good place to work out in the small town I was living in at the time. I’m still exclusively breastfeeding my son, and I’m hoping once he starts solids in a couple of months and I’m nursing less, that I’ll start to lose weight more quickly.
I joined a gym a couple of weeks ago, and I’ve been going regularly. But days like today, I haven’t been particularly motivated. My husband was taking a computer course at work the last couple of days, and was able to leave work very early today. Since he was home for lunch, I made pasta. With all those carbs in my stomach, I just felt gross today. I made myself go to the gym, but all I wanted to do is eat a pint of ice cream. I know that’s completely counterproductive, but that’s the way my mind works. I guess I eat when I’m unhappy.
I’m sure we all wish this, but wouldn’t it be nice if we saw results from working out in just a couple of days? It would be so motivating! The difficult part is expending the effort, and feeling like there are no results. I know, I know…I just have to keep at it. It will pay off eventually, right? :/
Hubby doesn’t want me to buy any more cloth diapers, but I’m addicted. They’re so cute! So the compromise is that I’ll make my own. How hard can it be? Don’t answer that. I was already planning on turning some prefolds into fitted diapers, but now I’m going to try all types. If I already blogged about this, I apologize. I’m so scatterbrained now days. I also find another gray hair every couple of days. I never had them before I became a mom. So it’s true that kids do give you gray hair!!!!
Anyway, don’t forget about the current Hidden Treasure Candle and Softbums giveaway going on right now! You can enter right here on my blog. The Green Family Giveaway is coming up very soon along with my Glow Bug diaper review.
I’m currently working on a review of the Bumkins one size All-In-One cloth diaper, and that should be up tomorrow.
I hope you’re having a great night! If you haven’t already connected with me on Facebook, please consider “liking” my page. Thanks!
