It's Time

It’s almost been 6 months since I’ve been pregnant, and I haven’t exactly been too motivated to get myself back into shape. I definitely haven’t been laying around eating junk, but I also haven’t made a point to excersise regularly and make conscious good food choices. Honestly, I was SO hungry my whole pregnancy that I kind of got used to eating whatever I wanted.

So I’ve decided it’s time to do something for me. I want to feel good about myself again, which I know will have a positive impact on how I relate to my family. I’ve also been thinking about Grayson, and how we need to set a good example for him by the foods we choose to eat. We plan on starting solids in a few weeks, and of course are going to feed him the freshest, healthiest organic foods we can, so why should we not eat the same way?
I’m going to start with things that are easy- giving up my morning bagel for fruit and oatmeal, eating salads for lunch instead of a grilled cheese sandwich or leftover pasta, and making simple, healthy dinners. I also really want to excersise a little each day- I’ve been taking Grayson for long walks every afternoon, which we both enjoy. One of these days I might even get back to running- we’ll see.

We went to SmashBurger for lunch today with friends- I am considering it my last “bad” meal- at least for a while. Oh why does bad food have to taste SO good?!

I will miss you cheeseburger and fries

    Why does bad food have to taste SO good? I'm often wondering the same thing… as I'm reading your post while eating chocolate layer cake! OINK!

    Love the pic of your burger and fries. Ahh….so yummy! You can do it! Seriously, small changes will yield a big result. And in all honesty, just last week, as my sweet Sophia is 9 months old, did I step on the scale and think, hmm…ok, hello number I am more used to. 9 months on…9 months off…or so they say…

    i am so bad with cutting back on bad foods (yep i might have had a piece of peanut butter pie and an english muffin for breakfast today) so i'm in the same boat. i have been exercising a lot since about 8 weeks pp but still have 5 more lbs to lose. gah.
