2011 WILL BE MY YEAR!! . . . MAKE THAT 2012!!

It has to be . . . NO MORE EXCUSES!! I am taking responsibility for my own LACK OF ACTION!!


Ok, so 2011 didn't quite go as planned, in that, I got pregnant a lot quicker than I thought I would!! Happy, happy!! My second son was born on Tuesday 17th April 2012, weighing 7lbs 1oz. We are all very much in love with him!!

I weighed myself 2 days after giving birth and was shocked to see my highest weight ever staring back at me . . . 252lbs!!(I have reflected this in my Spark Program reset, so I will always have a record of it). I was mortified!! However, my son will be 4 weeks old tomorrow and I now weigh 238 . . . breast feeding helps no end!!

My promise to myself . . . I will end 2012 lighter, fitter, healthier (physically and mentally) than I started it.

(I have reset my Spark Program as of 14/05/12).

My Goals:
My longer term goal is to lose 50 lbs by New Years 2012 . . . wish me luck!!

Daily goals are:

Drink 8 glasses of water.
Eat at least 5 fruit/vegetables.
Get at least 7 hours sleep. (Bit optimistic with a new born, I think!).
10,000 steps.
Log on to SparkPeople.

My Program:
At least 30 min cardio every day.

Strength training 4 times a week.

Going to the gym isn't much of an option for me, being a stay at home mum of a 3 yr old and a newborn. So, I make sure I have lots of variations to choose from as I get bored very easily. I have various dvd's to choose from including Zumba and some SparkPeople ones on their way.
I also like to work out on the Wii, so as well as Wii Fit Plus, I have Zumba for the Wii too.

Highest weight-252lbs 19/04/12

10lbs lost - 27/04/12
20lbs lost- 31/05/12
To be cont . . .

I'm a stay at home mum.
And I am completely and utterly in love with my 2 sons . . . oh, and my husband, of course. :-)

Other Information:
I LOVE SparkPeople!!!

I have problems with portion control and emotional eating . . . have got to beat this!

    Hi, and thanks for adding me as a Spark friend. Your son is beautiful - you must be very proud.
    I know all about depression as have suffered with it on and off for years. Currently on anti-d's which are really helping.
    Good luck with your Spark journey
