I haven’t done a post about my weight loss journey in a while mainly because it has not been a main focus in my life. I am really doing my best to enjoy every second I get to spend with my family because I work full time. I choose not to make time to go to the gym, I would rather spend that time with my family and I am ok with that.
I made the decision to write this post in the wake of this image…
I have a love/hate relationship with this photo. I think she is awesome for being so fit 8 months after giving birth to her third son, but I think that the caption on this photo could have been different. I assume the intention of this photo was to motivate people but the caption makes it seem otherwise. I think something along the lines of “If I can do it you can do it” would have been more appropriate. But I guess even that can be seen as a negative comment. There is really no pleasing everyone and I really think people need to stop being so sensitive. I also think that this post hit the nail on the head. Read it!
Anyway back to me.. haha. I am about 11 lbs away from my pre-pregnancy weight. I know that if I make time to do some sort of physical activity each day I will lose that in no time, but I just don’t want to. haha. We are really active on the weekends and I think that by maintaining that and not snacking as much has I have been *wink* *wink*, I can lose these last few lbs by the end of the year. I gave myself a 9 month time frame to loose as much weight as I could without really “dieting”, and I have about 2 weeks until that time is up. Frankly I don’t care.. haha. By no means am I saying that I don’t want to lose the weight and get back in shape, but seriously right now there are more important things going on. I am away from my family working over 40 hours a week, I get maybe 3 hours with them each day.. Do you really think I want to take another hour of that away to go work out… Call it an excuse, I don’t care, it’s my life.
Once I am placed on a contract I will have access to a gym and I can go workout during lunch, but for now I am going to enjoy this smiley face..
