I am over it

Here is the deal, my baby will be one in a month and I still do not fit back into most my jeans, you know the cute ones.

I am not happy about it.  It sucks.

In the past 11 months I have had a baby and run two marathons.  I look like I had a baby but not so much like I ran two marathons.

Something has got to give.

Here is how I am planning to fit into my cute jeans in the next 30 days. 

I am going to watch what I eat, including the bites I take of the kids food (no more PB&J crusts).  I will watch what and how much I drink, drink more water, and feed myself real food.  I will stop eating bites of the kids food and waiting to really eat until I am starving. I will plan and prepare meals for myself. Finally I will move more even if I can't run.

I realize I have posted about this before, but...I need to be accountable. 

To keep myself accountable I am going to do a post weekly showing or listing exactly what I am eating, drinking and how much I am moving during the week.

In a week you can be on the look out for my food and exercise log, maybe not the most exciting reading for you, but fitting into my jeans will be exciting for me.



  1. I am so with you on picking at the kids food. I need to stop, especially since my peanut is on a high-calorie, high-fat diet to pack on pounds (husband too.)

    I am 2 years out and have not lost the weight so don't feel bad...


  2. Ok, but you do NOT look like you had a baby.

  3. Oh my gosh, I would be so frustrated! You're obviously in good shape if you have run marathons, but I can certainly understand not being where you want to be overall. It's amazing how those little things you mentioned have probably added up over time (a bite here and there, ignoring your hunger, etc...) I hope your new plan works out!

    Stopped by from FTLOB :)

  4. Oh, and I just saw that you stopped by my site earlier!! Looks like we're sharing some comment love :D

  5. Go girl! I can't do much in the eating/drinking department except not offer tempting treats (which I promise not to do), but I can watch those monkeys while you run!
