I'm still alive -- and still counting calories!

Okay, that last part isn't true. But I'm calorie counting started T O D A Y! I'm nursing, which gives me a ridiculous amount of something like 41 points per day at WW -- and I can't eat that much! That's crazy to me. I eat ENOUGH, though. Trust me. You can look at me & tell I clearly eat enough.

Life's been busy lately. I've discovered Lost on Netflix -- not sure why I never got into that before! It's a captivating show. I've been getting a lot of cleaning done. Spending a lot of quality time with the girls. What I have NOT been doing is exercising.


That ends today. I'm about to start implementing a strict schedule of supper at 6:00, then I leave for a walk at 6:45. I will throw J in the sling and just GO. I am making myself start at 45 minutes for the first week, and then go up to an hour. I have already decided that when income tax time rolls around (I love that time of year!) I am getting a gym quality treadmill or elliptical (opinions, anyone?) and the exercise bike that my mom NEVER uses and those bad boys are going in my garage. We don't park our cars in the garage, so M can have half the garage for his "man cave" and I will take the other half for my sewing/scrapbooking & for the exercise equipment. Throw a TV up and I'm good to go! Can we say....ALONE TIME??

I know there are no pictures on here, but I do have some super cute ones I am going to upload tonight & post tomorrow. Don't kill me yet. :)

Hey girl, I like your idea about the walking every night and having your alone time for your workouts. Good for you! Keep it up!

Hope your first night of walking went well! We went walking last Friday, and I about died!?!?! It was a good 3 mile walk, and it got hot! Enjoy, though! It'll be so good for your weightloss efforts!!
