Since my last post I have googled diets, Boot Camps, Gyms, etc… I just don’t have the time or money for most of it – still recovering from being (almost) salaryless for almost 4months… (BTW thank you for all the comments, it makes me feel better knowing Im not the only one feeling like that). Anyways…
I have come up with my ‘own’ plan of action. Hubby will dig out my mini trampoline from the garage. Starting on the weekend I will try (emphasis on the TRY) and make an effort at exercising, even if it’s just 10min in the evening! Weekends we will restart our Sunday walk around the neighborhood. Looking at our eating habits, its really not that bad – come to think of it, I might be eating too little (during the day), hence my body just wants to hold on to everything I do eat. I’m a notorious breakfast/lunch skipper… So effort will be made to eat something for breakfast and I’m going to halve my dinner portion (where possible) and eat the ‘left over’ half for lunch. Just need some fruit for snacks and drink a (lot) more water! I’m setting myself 5kg goals, 3 of them… but 5kg sounds better than 15kg’s, no? Hope I’ll get halfway by Dec…no pressure!
As example: Today I ate my lunch for breakfast, because I didn’t have time to sit down and eat cereal, and now Im munching on my ‘emergency’ stash of salticrax…OI VEY! By the time I get home Im so hungry I can eat a horse and then try my darn best to do so! Now I just need scale – been sneakily weighing myself at my Mom’s house – not a bad thing perhaps, motivation to feel the weight & cm’s ‘drop’ fall-in-slowmotion off….
After reading Charlotte’s blog this week, being sad at possibly not having more kids. I started thinking of my own pregnancy and child(ren). We want to have another, but its not to say that we will be Blessed with another Baby… My pregnancy was a breeze, but the last 2 months of it I was sooo busy at work I hardly had time to pause when Madam kicked or to just rub my tummy or take the time to talk to her. I was under so much pressure and stress and Im sure she ‘suffered’ with me. I never paused to think – this might be the last one…
I will make an effort to celebrate all Jessica’s firsts, from smiles to teeth to steps and falls. We don’t know what God has in store for us for the future, it might include a 2nd child, it might not. *sorry its just something that I’ve been thinking of…*
In other Happy News – Jessica is being christened in November. We needed to book a venue to accommodate the family afterwards for lunch. Anyone used Pick&Pay recently for catering? They have a selection of platters they put together – looks nice on their website and it’s an inexpensive way to feed 35-odd people.
OOOH and update on the eating! I bought Jessica some Cerelac Rice Cereal and a few bottles of Purity. I should have known better re the Purity – she didn’t like the butternut all that much – then again neither did I, it tasted like it was burnt in the pot or something, that bitter taste… YUK! I’ll make some veggies on the weekend and puree away! The cereal is going lots better – probably ‘cos it tastes sweeter (yes I took a bite). For now only giving her a bit in the evenings – she eats 1-2 teaspoons before she refuses to open her mouth! Very cute, how she knows I don’t want no more and ‘clamp’ her mouth shut. I took lots of pics – but don’t have time to download today…will post them tomorrow – another piccie Friday!
I’ve been wondering if the shopping spammers actually get some business from all their spammails/comments?! ROFL
FAB evening to you all!
