I fell off the band wagon a couple of days in between last week  :( the reason for this was more to do with 'life getting in the way' of things that are also equally important to me than just 'being a mommy of twins' if you know what I am saying. But on an honest note I did realize that comittment to exercising everyday is going to take a whole lot of planning,time management and prioritizing, plus not to mention the guilt -the guilt that I would be taking care of me for a whole 30 minutes instead of attending to my twinfants.

Anyways enough of my rant, so as mentioned earlier I will be trying to apply whatever I know to this new changed weight loss,my goal is to become the same weight as I was 11 years ago when I got married. I weight around 132 pounds then thats about 81 pounds lighter than I am today. Sounds quiet overwhelming,and thats why I am going to focus 1 pound at a time, that way I have to think of just this 1 pound and how I will loose it.

I have been unwell this past few days,and so is my 2 month old daughter and that makes it hard.I have a cold and I have no idea how to go running in with a running nose -haha that sounds funny!  But realistically speaking this is an excuse.

NO MORE EXCUSES






I have also decided I will be writing down even the smallest of my successes down,no matter how small they are. I feel a lot of times we get into the 'What I could do better' and forget focusing on 'What I HAVE DONE GOOD'

Thats coming up soon as soon as I firgure out how to make another tab on this Blogspot.

Setting Goals

So the reason to create this Blog as the name suggests is to see myself FAT FREE!!!
Last year I managed to loose 30 lbs, by exercising,eating healthy, then I got pregnant and turned out I was not just pregnant but pregnant with TWINS and that really changes the dynamics of how much weight you really are expected to gain.My starting weight in the pregnancy was 174 lbs I went to 236 lbs when I delivered and 2 weeks after the twins were born it hit 213 lbs.

The doctor said it would come down on its own,but I know for a fact with my genes it does not come 'down on its own' so here I am stuck at 213 lbs and wanted so bad to be at 174 lbs..Hence this blog...I want to make a log of what I eat and how much I eat plus the exercise so there is an accountability.

My goal is to loose 2 lbs per week.I think that is pretty realistic goal if I eat reasonably healthy and exercise at least 30 minutes a day. Ideally I would want to be able to exercise much more than this (which I have in the past... when I lost 30 lbs I used to exercise twice a day sometimes thrice once during lunch hour at work too) but now as the post title suggests I want to keep my goals realistic and with my twins just being 2 months old,and whole fun stuff of non stop feeding,burping etc etc finding 30 minutes for myself is also a challenge,but I think that it is realistic.
