Losing It Challenge
A week late, I've decided to join in on the Losing it Challenge, hosted by Giving Up On Perfect. A year after Katie's birth, I don't think I can blame her for the high number on the scale anymore, and I really have to do something about it. For my health, to be as attractive as I can be for my husband, and because if the Lord gives us another baby, I don't want to gain another 40 pounds on top of the weight I have yet to lose. I'm not so much joining in for the possible prizes as I am for the accountability. So, I'll be checking in with how I've done and (hopefully) weight lost every Friday.
Here is my plan:
::No sweets, period, as of today. Hold me to this, y'all. Sweets are my downfall. I'm also going to avoid white flours--the only exception would be if we were invited to someone's house for a meal and they served something like spaghetti, where the refined flour couldn't be avoided.
::I am going to limit my intake of grains and carbs in general, and focus on eating healthy fats/proteins and vegetables. I am not committing to a complete grain elimination because I am still nursing and want to make sure my milk supply doesn't diminish.
::Do something for exercise six days per week. Maybe I'll do the Shred, or maybe I'll go on a walk with Katie if the weather permits. But, something. My day off will be Sunday.
What have y'all done to get rid of post-pregnancy pounds?
