I just recently had a baby and I am trying to fit into my prepregnancy jeans again. Is it possible?!? I sure hope so!

MY JOURNEY
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
OCTOBER 13, 2007:
Highest weight during pregnancy: 198 lbs
A lot of it was water retention. I swelled HUGE!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
NOVEMBER 1, 2007:
Weight: 183 lbs (down 15 lbs)
Lost all excess water weight and am ready to start losing the fat!
I hope to reach my pre-preggo weight by my birthday (March 3).
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
FEBRUARY 4, 2007:
Weight: 171 lbs
A change in goals! No longer looking to reach a certain number (on the scale or in pant size), just striving to change my lifestyle (and hopefully weightloss will follow).
This is my plan starting today:
*Stay close to a 40c/30p/30f ratio.
*Start to eat clean.
*Drink 96 oz water daily (account for breastfeeding and exercise)
*Take my vitamins daily (B-50 in am for energy and multi-vitamin in pm, as well as Omega-3)
*Work on relaxing more (I am starting yoga today!).
*Get more sleep (nap when baby is sleeping, regardless if the dishes need washing or the laundry needs folding).
*Work out when I can, but not obsess over it.
*Not weigh every day!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My Goals:
I know its bad to not have goals. So I guess my goals include:
♥being healthier
♥being happier
♥being the best mom I can

I want to lose weight, but right now being a good mom is the most important thing to me! I was getting too stressed out trying to reach a number on the scale or pant size. It isn't about that anymore. Its about being healthy.



My Program:
Work out when I can.

Drink at least 80 oz of water a day.

Eat more whole grains, fruits, veggies, and lean meats. Cut out all processed foods and sugar.

Relax. Life isn't about looking good, its about feeling good!



Personal Information:
My name is Amanda and I am from central Utah.

My baby girl was born 10-13-2007 at 1 pm. I named her Madison. She weighed 5 lbs 10 oz and was 18 1/2 inches long with an 11 1/2 inch head. I ♥ my baby girl!!!

    Welcome to the Calorie Cycling team!

    The best place to start, in learning more about calorie cycling, is by reading through the GREAT Tips, Links & Info thread on the sparkteam page. You can also visit the freedieting website that has a calorie calculator, to help calculate your 7-day calorie cycling numbers, make sure to read through the entire page since there's a lot of great information,
    www.freedieting.com/tools/calorie_calcul
    ator.htm#

    Just don't forget to coincide your higher intensity workouts with your high calorie days, the lowest calorie day is usually your rest days, everything else is normal cardio.

    There is also a post that shows how you can use your sparks calorie range if you don't feel comfortable with the high numbers from the freedieting website.

    I highly recommend reading the article "The ZigZag Diet" by Dr. Squat,

    www.bodybuilding.com/fun/drsquat6.htm

    and the article "IDEAL WEIGHT: IS THERE SUCH THING?" by Thomas Tadlock,

    www.thomastadlock.com/index.cfm?action=v
    iewarticle&action2=5

    If you still have questions after reading through the threads please don't hesitate to ask in the "I NEED HELP" thread. General chit chat is usually in the "By the Campfire" thread OR you could always sparkmail me!

    Take care,
    CC

    P.S. SparkPeople may cut the website addresses in half so don't forget to copy the whole thing!

    I checked out the gym in Huntington. It's really very cramped and they have some classes in the back room that were REALLY crowded. Thought for awhile about joining it but really wanted a different kind of gym experience. Being from Southern Calfornia I was spolied with options, you have to get inventive around here. I got a stationary bike and can ride it while I watch TV, that seems to work. I was thinking about when the weather gets better maybe taking some walks over at Huntingon resevoir? It's kind of pretty there. I actually like to walk but with it being -5 degrees this morning it doesn't seem very attractive right now.
