I blogged for years, chronicling my journey through: infertility, weight loss and gain, our first home purchase. And then I had Ladybug and I let it go. I tried to start up again, but didn't stick with it.
Things are different now. I miss writing. I miss being able to look back at a part of my life and see how I was doing. I miss having an outlet. I miss being accountable. It's hard to eat Buffalo Wild Wings once a week if everyone knows that you're on a diet.
|My actual lunch from today, it was delicious|
- Mommydom - I had (have) a baby! Who's now a toddler (my widdle baby isn't so widdle anymore *pout*)
- Weight Loss - And I'm putting numbers out there - see accountability! I was 230 lbs when I got pregnant with Ladybug. I only gained 20 pounds during my pregnancy and lost it nearly immediately. Then I lost another 20, and I stayed there. And I didn't even try. Turns out breastfeeding is the best cardio ever. In fact, my body forbade me to diet, whenever I'd try to watch what I ate, my supply would drop. I'd eat like a pig (see picture above) and I'd be rewarded with a great pumping session at work. I'm done pumping at work and am slowly weaning us off the nighttime and morning feeds (operative word slowly) so I will not have that "cardio" cushion for much longer. I never want to be as big as I was, so I need to get on it. And no, on it is not another order of wings although they were so yummy.
- Finances - In our infinite
wisdomstupidity, we bought a house right before the housing bubble burst. And then we bought a bunch of stuff to put in said house. And then I bought a car. In hindsight, this was not the greatest plan I've ever come up with. Gas prices skyrocketed, toll prices doubled and my bonus was decreased and delayed - the perfect storm of too much debt and not enough options. I've paid off about 35% my consumer debt, but I've got a long way to go.
- Random - Whatever random foolishness (and there is a lot) happens to be running through my head.
