I’m not feeling so lovely friends. I need to get a few things in order. I’m thinking maybe if I write them out, and you know like publicly, than maybe I’ll actually do a little something about this. It’s been almost 5 months now since Rocco Royal arrived and after having 2 babies back to back I need to get a little bit of me back. Of course, I still have some weight to loose. And to be perfectly honest, I pretty much want these last 10 pounds off like yesterday. Mainly because, I want to wear my jeans and I want to buy new jeans and new clothes because I’ve been wearing pregnancy and in between clothes for over two years and it is time.
Now the thing about me is I am no dieter. It just doesn’t happen. Tell me I can’t have something and I want it with force. So for me it is a game of cut backs and trade off’s. I’ve just been a little too greedy lately. Tired and greedy. And here is where tired comes in, because it’s not just about weight. It’s a lot about the whole picture. You know, things like washing my face at night and slathering myself with potions and lotions so I don’t look completely haggard by age 35. You with? So here is my small list or maybe not so small list of little things that make me feel a little more sane and maybe I’ll just have to tackle one at a time. Like one whole week of washing my face before bed. Want to join me? We can share routines and favorite products and so on. Yeah let’s start with that.
And here is my main list just for the sake of listing:
\wash my face before bed
\go to bed absolutely no later than 12:30 (iphone off)
\read before bed
\computer, iphone, ipad off 30 minutes before sleep
\walk 6 days a week
\yoga once a week
\weights 1-2x a week
\sit ups before bed \ leg lifts while blow drying my hair [yeah I’m weird like that] \more salads, greens, veggies
\drink more water
\Stop + take deep breaths throughout the day
\a little dark chocolate a day + save major treats for the weekend
\do more things for others
There is more but I don’t want to overwhelm myself. Anyhow, I’m starting small . . .
My goal this week revolves around bed….. >wash face>computer off> read>bed.
Now you tell me… what is on your list? Are you a bit crazy like me, leg exercises while blow drying your hair kind of stuff?
