Hey there guys! I hope you had a fabulous weekend! I sure did. This is the first Monday in a LONG time that I don’t have a test. I almost didn’t know what to do with myself over the weekend. I had so much TIME! I went running with a friend on Saturday, ran errands with my family without worrying about how much work I had to do, got our food prepped for the week, played outside, and of course still snuck in a few hours of studying. Dare I say I felt relaxed? I definitely needed a weekend like that as I gear up for finals since they start 2 weeks from today (!!!). I am also getting caught up on here and have some fun things to share with you guys! First, my three month post baby body update since I am surely late on this
What do the numbers say?
Guys I have to be honest with you … I am thrilled with these numbers. I honestly thought some of them were going to increase based on my terrible food choices and lack of exercise. Breastfeeding for the win
HA. I have been fitting in workouts when I can but I am averaging about 3-4 per week. I feel like I have to accept that this is my new normal. I try to get up at 5AM to fit in a workout but that doesn’t always happen. Sometimes it’s the kids, sometimes I am just too tired. I definitely try to get some workouts in on the weekend and then just do what I can during the week. I have to remind myself that as long as I am moving that I am a-ok and this is only for one more year. I have been working out mainly at home and will be sharing some of my favorite ways to do so with you guys soon!
Another FAIL. I have to admit I have gone through the Chick-Fil-A drive thru way too many times. In fact I just looked at my bank account and the number of times it appears on there makes me a little sick. Chris and I sat down and talked about some of our goals over this weekend and now it’s just time to get on them. I prepped healthy lunches and snacks for the week and am shaking off the past and heading into the future.
Overall this month I am just happy not to have gone backwards. I know the areas that I need to improve on and am excited to do that and face the challenge ahead!
If you’ve hit a plateau how did you motivate yourself to get through it?

Happy Monday friends! Did you miss me? I sure missed you guys. Last week was CRAZY and this girl couldn’t do it all so something had to give. Blogging was the something that had to be put on the back burner so I could just survive the week. I am happy to say I DID… more
