Hot Hot Hot!

So we had a super hot day yesterday, and of course our air conditioning isn't working!  I hate to complain, considering the rain we've had lately and the winter we had.  But wow it's ridiculously hot!

It's been 2 weeks since I started eating healthy and walking, we won't call it a "diet".  I'm doing well, and I'm proud at how motivated I am staying.  It's been hard, but veggies and fruits are my new version of cookies and chips.  I have slipped in the odd cookie or dessert, but then again I'm only human!

The last 2 weeks have been good, a total weight loss of 6lbs, almost down to the weight I was before I had Emilia, and she's only 5 weeks old!  I could've walked a little more, but with all the rain we've had it's been hard to!

I've never cooked healthy and I'm running out of cooking ideas and different ways to eat my fruit & veggies.  I'm starting to get bored with the way I'm eating, I need to find new ways of cooking and new "healthier" options.

Bring on summer, grilling, and walking! cheers

Quitting Chocolate

So, I'm new to all this blogging stuff, but a few friends have inspired me.  I've been on maternity leave for about a month now, and avoiding cleaning my house right now, haha.  So being on mat leave, I'm either watching cartoons with my 2 year old, or daytime tv when I'm feeding my 1 month old.  So if you don't already know, daytime tv sucks! I've watched a few weight loss shows and decided to get inspired.

So I jumped on the scale 2 days ago (1st time since having my new baby), and it read 187 lbs...yikes! then I took my measurements, bust 40", waist 41", hips 44".  Wow, you've got to be kidding me, my boobs are smaller than my waist?!? not cool.

I've been doing some research, and decided not to do any of those crazy "quick fix" diets, but to use the Canada food guide, and make a lifestyle change.  I've got a sweet tooth, and I'm sure a few goodies will sneak their way into my food choices.  Quitting chocolate will probably be my equivalent of quitting smoking!

My goal is to get to a healthy weight of 150 lbs in 6 months.  

Well here's wishing me luck!
