Day 1 is half way done

Well so far this morning hasn't gone fully to plan but so far so good. So I am currently breastfeeding so tim not trying to do anything too drastic that will hurt my milk supply, especially since we are only 2 months in, and our goal is 6 months to a year. This morning when we got up, I made sure the baby ate, then I pumped and had a slim fast protien Shake. Then me and the little ran errands including grocery shopping. Got home and fed the baby again and unloaded and put everything away, and I had l serving of pasta with chicken, mixed veggies and a little Alfredo sauce. It's not the healthy lunch I planned but I was very hungry and it was already cooked and in my fridge. But I did at least watch my portion size, which for me IS one of my biggest hurdles. I also had a Starbucks refresher energy drink. And I still am hungry so I will have a premier protien, protein shake which has 30 grams of Protein. Considering I am breastfeeding, I'm not doing too badly calorie wise for the day so far. So wish me luck as I try to be stronger the rest of Day #1.

21 days

It takes 21days to form a habit. Today I start a new habit. I am 31 years old and my birthday is in 11 days. I am 2 months postpartum and absolutely loving being a first time mom. I have the most beautiful and perfect baby girl. I couldn't have asked for anything better. But I am 100 pounds overweight, 45 of which is left over pregnancy weight. I start back to work in 22 days, and before I go book to School (I teach), I would like to loose a few pounds and fit in some more of my clothes, but most of all I would like to get myself back on track and form good habits so it will be easier to stick to them once I go back to work and things get crazy busy again. I have more back story I will give as I go but for now I wanted to introduce myself and set my goal so I can use this blog to keep me motivated and hold me accountable. So this will be day 1.... but for now, it is late, baby is asleep, house is clean, and it is late. So good night for now and when I wake, the journey begins (again).
