Tomorrow is day one of my Bikini Body Mommy 3.0 adventure..
I fail miserably at these programs.. they are too strict.. they deprive too much.. they work you too hard.. they don’t work you hard enough..
I have decided to do BBM 3.0 and have accountability partners.. I’m actually running this BBM journey with a few online friends.. I’ll be the one posting the videos and asking for updates from the people who have joined me..
I am hoping that since they will be depending on me to keep them motivated, that it means I will stay motivated myself..
I have decided that I will not be following her meal plan.. I will take the supplements that she has suggested and do her work outs.. I will be increasing my water intake as well.. but I will eat what I like and practice moderation.
Bright at early tomorrow morning I will weigh myself for the first time in over a month.. which will be horrifying.. and I will post it publicly which is even more horrifying..
I went though a depression for that month that I didn’t step on a scale.. and I am a comfort eater..so that doesn’t really bode well for me. I’m not sure what I weigh right now, but I can guarantee that it is more than 200 lbs so I am a bundle of nerves tonight because I know I will not be happy with what I see on the scale.
For now.. I will try not to let it get to me too much.. but seeing as I am writing about it.. it’s not easy to not think of.
I am not sure how regularly I will be posting about it here as I will be posting it in the womens group that I am in and posting it on Instagram.. But I will try to keep you updated.. My invisible reader.. who is so invisible that it doesn’t show in the stats that you have read my blog entries.
This morning was a panic.. My laundry card ate my money and didn’t add it to the balance.. I had to put more money on the card in order to do laundry..
Which in turn made laundry take longer than planned. My clothes were still in the dryer with 20 minutes to go when I had to head to work.
I grabbed my uniform and went to work 15 minutes before my shift was supposed to start and got there with 3 minutes to spare.. Close call.. But I made it.
Today at work was uneventful.. I haven’t yet learned all of my duties so it kept me thinking. I ended up staying 15 minutes late because I thought I was done 3 times before I was actually done.
Tonights dinner was a stir fry with Asian 5 spice.. I love it.. Plus it has ginger in it and I am fighting a mild cold.. Which is annoying more than anything else..
I blame my family for getting me sick.. My boyfriend got sick at work.. My 11 year old got sick at school.. They gave it to the baby.. All 3 of them finally got me..
I actually had to get tylenol at work because my headache was so bad. 😛
Question: what is your favourite Asian dish to make & can I have the recipe to try it out?
I am hoping other moms out there can give me a little advice..
My second pregnancy.. I took care of myself.. I ate healthy (most of the time anyway.. A pregnant woman needs her treats), I exercised regularly.. If I was too sore to walk.. I swam.. I relaxed and made time to pamper myself.. I did kegals every day.. I did everything “right”
I still dealt with LBL (light bladder leakage).. From 5 months pregnant through out my entire pregnancy.. I asked my midwife about it because I was concerned.. She told me not to worry.. With regular kegals it will go away on its own soon after birth..
What I would like to know ladies is what “soon” means..
My daughter is now 11 months old.. I am still doing kegals every single time I nurse her.. As soon as I wake up in the morning & before bed.. Though my boyfriend appreciates it.. It still isn’t helping with my LBL issue.. I don’t even feel it when it happens.. I just use the bathroom and can smell it on my pad when I do..
Is there anything else I can do to correct this?
Should I speak to a doctor?
Am I doomed to live like this for the rest of my life?
Someone out there please let me know I am not alone in this..
