4.5 Months { Mom Blog }

Tuesday I got two great workouts in. I woke up with some extra energy since the babies slept good and did a 42 minute circuit and then a 43 minute run! I burned 793 calories (total)!! Had an OK eating day on Tuesday. For some reason I am just having trouble giving food 100%. I am still staying within my calories, but my choices haven't been the best and I'm worried it's going to show this week! I thought I would be extra motivated this week since my goal is getting so close, but instead I'm kind of feeling discouraged and burned out. I had decided to start letting myself have a few things here and there that I wanted in hopes if I had one meal a week to look forward to my easier choices during the week would be easier, but that seems to make things worse. I think I do better 100% or nothing. This weekend is Noah's 4th birthday and I plan to enjoy his party, but I think other than that I am going to try to get back to 100% eating good. I seem to be an all or nothing kind of person! My schedule here isn't what I'd like either I think I had just gotten on a routine in MO that was working for me and since we moved our schedule has been turned upside down and I'm still trying to figure out something that works here. I keep telling myself I'm so close and I need to give it 100%, I'd rather give it 100% for another month and be DONE and just be maintaining then give it 50-75% and it take another 2 months!!!

One from Tuesday, I am happy with my progress, I guess. I know there is improvement, but somedays I just don't *see* it. I'm really hoping my belly skin continues to improve. I am just 4.5 months postpartum so I am hoping my stretch marks fade and my lose skin tightens back up some!! The worst part of my lose skin is just under where my clothes fall so at least it doesn't show!!

Now to show off my sweet Ellie. I brought my studio light and soft box in and set it up. I think I am going to leave it set up on the other side of the workout room because its such a pain to set it up and take it back down that I haven't taken as many pictures of the babies as I wish I had! It's just really tiring to do them both so I think I will just leave it set up so if one of the babies is in a really good mood I can take a few! Josiah always naps much longer than Ellie, so while he was sleeping Ellie and I had a quick photoshoot. Of course she wouldn't smile for me.....this last little smirk was thanks to her big brother Noah. 

Pin It!
