Thoughts of a 20-something

Post baby ass kicking time

Leave a comment

I was looking back through my old posts and realized I’ve been here before. Scale close to 200 pounds, general unhappiness but stressed/busy to the point of daily exhaustion. The past few days, I’ve fallen asleep on the couch while my child took her afternoon nap. I’m sure that some of this has to do with my weight. Classified as “obese” by the BMI calculator (which I know is outdated, but still).

Before my daughter was born I was 20 pounds lighter. I was happier with myself. I was certainly healthier. This is my journey back there and I’m hoping that it will take this summer.

1st Goal: be back to my pre-baby weight (175ish, so goal is 175) by the end of the summer.

2nd Goal: 160 by Christmas

and from there we’ll see. I started doing the 21 day fix last Monday and am already down 5 pounds. The workouts aren’t the issue, it’s definitely food, treats and alcohol. I have a hard time making the healthiest option when we’re out to eat and forcing myself to choose health over taste. I need to dial into my nutrition and hold myself accountable. I’m hoping that signing up for BeachBody on Demand will help me reach these goals. I know that my husband is supporting me and right there to help me when I need him, and I know that I need to get my health in check to be here for my daughter in the long term.


Here we go!
