For the love of a flat tummy

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.

P.S. If you want to read a really inspiring weight loss blog check out my friend's blog. And she really is my real friend, not just some stranger's blog that I read. We've spent time together in person and have inside jokes and everything.

I miss Peanut M&M's already. We should really hide that bag.

oh man... don't I know how you feel. I hate post pregnancy fat! I'm still working on it all. But do you know what!>> After changing up my diet and just being slightly better I lost 10 pounds in two weeks. GENIUS! You will too, I bet.

Pop-tarts are the best. I have a secret stash that I bust out on special days. I did have a ot more, but I eat them too much and the cache is diminishing.

Katie said...

I knew Chris was going to say something about his love of Pop Tarts. Bryan and I have cool gifts planned for you guys, but if we didn't, I feel confident that we could send you a box of Pop Tarts and you would be just as happy (if not more happy) than you would be with the loving gift we have already thought of. Lollipops! (I'd use the real word, but I know Trish is reading everything I write now, so I'd better watch my language.)

I really like the vegtable heart picture. I really like vegtables - I just wish I liked them more than candy and cookies.
Also Pop Tarts really are delicious. Although sometimes I like "Toast 'Ems" more. I think because they're not quite as sugary so I don't feel so gross afterwards.

It is a good goal...keep at it! :)

Eeww - pop tarts. That would not tempt me at all, but I am a sucker for chocolate, especially if it's crunchy. I still vote that the mega-bag-o-candy ought to go to that dentist who sends it off to soldiers. For me, if it's in the house, I eventually think of a reason to go sneak and eat some. Better to have it gone, I think.

Good goals! Hang in there!

I've decided that Fall is the WORST time ever to have a baby. All I want to do is bake ... with lots and lots of chocolate chips. Not to mention the candies, pies, cookies and non-stop treats. It's THE WORST. I'm pretty sure I felt cuter when I was a pregnant mama because at least then I had clothes that fit ... all of my pre-pregnancy clothes just manage to emphasize my saggy gut (oh joy!) and heaven knows I'm not buying a new wardrobe right now ... Marilee would probably just poop all over it anyway. Oh to feel cute again (sigh). Anyway, thanks for letting me complain on your blog. Btw, I posted pics of my kids wearing the shirts you made and I love them to death .. thanks again (www.jesseejournal.blogspot.com)! And see you Saturday! (I'll email the location)

I agree with Kathy that Pop-tarts are gross and chocolate is awesome.
