How I'm Doing


Remember I told you all about my goals for this year? I told you that I want to be healthier and eat better? I told you that I wanted to stop yelling at my kids? Well, it's time to be accountable.
I have not had any refined sugar, animal products, or more than 1 C. of whole grains since January 2. In that time I have lost 10 lbs! YIPEE!!! I am now where I was before Thanksgiving. 16 more pounds and I'll be at my pre-pregnancy weight, which is where I really want to be by my birthday on February 11. At that time I will have sugar again (I really want some good cake or cupcakes or something yummy like that).

As for the yelling...well, I am doing better :) Baby steps right? Another goal I have is to play with my kids more and say yes a lot more often. So, right now Seth asked to play with me, so I said yes. I am going to get off the computer more and play a lot more.
