Man, thanks for all the sweet-o comments on the last post. It totally made me feel like a blogging rock star. And that's always a good thing. Anyway, on to more important things: ME!
Well, here's the truth- I am still pudgy. Now I know what you will all tell me. You will say, "Oh, Katie, you just had a baby two months ago. Of course you're still pudgy. It's just fat leftover from the baby. You'll shed it in no time. You're just being impatient." Well, that's very nice of you to say and I hope you're right. However, I have not really been helping the situation. Or, rather, Halloween and all the candy I let it include has not been helping the situation. But I really would love to have a flat tummy and wear my old clothes without feeling like an idiot. I think this is a good goal for two reasons. First of all, I would feel skinny and cute (as opposed to frumpy and pudgy)...errr... I mean I would be healthy, and, second of all, I wouldn't have any reason to spend money on a new wardrobe. (Bonus reason number three: if I did go shopping for new clothes it would be a lot more fun because they would fit me nicely.)
As a first step toward this skinnier, healthier, more-adorned-in-my-pre-pregnancy-clothes me Bryan and I have both committed to not eating any treats (candy, ice cream, junk, etc.) except on a previously chosen day of the week. This week's day is Friday. So far this week is off to a great start. We haven't had any candy yet today and we both had an energizing breakfast of chocolate chip Pop Tarts. Okay, so we're not off to a great start, but the Pop Tarts were only because we only have a few tablespoons left of milk in the fridge. Not quite enough for cereal. I'll go shopping today though. I promise. Or I'll send Bryan. Promise, promise.
In addition to this, I will also continue to drink lots of water and go on nice long walks with my friend and her cute baby every day. (Except I don't know about today yet because the big O has her two month check up this afternoon during the time we are usually out traipsing around the city.) Man, today is off to a really lame start. But I am not discouraged. Despite my love of all things chocolaty, I am determined to be skinny sooner than later. Wish me (lots) of luck! I'll be needing it.
