Mommy Meltdown: Checking in at the end of July.

  Life gets hectic, and things get in the way. We all know that. But, it stinks when it affects your eating and working out habits. For me, my headaches are the biggest pain in the ...well, head. But, usually I work through it. Not so on Monday, and I missed my first Stroller Strides class that I planned on taking. The good news is that starting in August, 2 more classes will be added. And, they will be at night. So I can take a class 3 , 4 or 5 times a week to make my August goal of 5 lbs lost.

    Where am I for July?Well, with my setback and some water retention, ugh, I am still short about 3 lbs for July. I weigh in about 12-13 lbs lost every time I get on the scale. Don't get me wrong, I am happy I have lost that and I am feeling healthier and smaller (and my first pair of skinny jeans fit), but I would love  to hit my 15 lb goal for July. I think I may be able to catch up a little in August as we have a vacation coming up and I will be able to workout and run every day for those 2 weeks). Also, I found out my scale is not accurate since doing my evaluation at Gold's Gym. So, I am not sure how accurate my weekly weigh in at home is. I do know, it changes one to two lbs during the day. Stinky scale. I should probably just sell it at a garage sale and go by a tight pair of jeans..but still. I am very numbers oriented.

 We have some fun outdoorsy stuff coming up so that should keep me in check.  Today is a rainy , gross day so instead of going to the park, we are heading to the gym and I am taking a weight lifting class. Yay!

I will check in again on Friday or Sat (I am taking class both days).  Stay healthy (more recipes coming soon)
