Operation Skinny Mama {an update}

It's been about 6 weeks since I started tracking my points with Weight Watchers again. I'll be honest, I've cheated a lot more this time than I did last year. Cheated as in, I may or may not have driven thru Wendy's tonight to get a cheeseburger. And fries. And a diet coke. 

I haven't started really working out yet. I can't figure out a good time to do it. The toddler wakes up at the crack of dawn, the baby has zero napping schedule, & by the time 8:30pm rolls around....I'm zonked. We do go walking in our neighborhood on the trails. That counts for something, right? 

Since I started this little Operation, I've lost 5ish pounds. I've got about 15 more I want to lose.  I need to step up my game! 

I did have a happy moment this week. The new skinny jeans I bought a month ago are now too big AND I can fit (comfortably!!!!!) in my old pre-baby jeans. I can fit in them AND there is no muffin top. That is what this mama calls winning!

I mean, I kind of had a freak out moment before MOPS when I realized this.  I'm pretty sure Griffin thought I had lost my mind.  

SO, I do need to step it up & stop slacking off...BUT? I have seen some results!

Here are my new goals:
  • drink LOTS more water and less Diet Crack Coke
  • only allow myself one cheat day a week
  • this 30 day ab challenge -- I've got to get these stomach muscles back!

You look amazing for not just giving birth, but you just look great! I lost 70 lbs after having my baby in march and what really worked was a month of losing weight with no cheat meals, water only, and I only worked out at home. Month two I started having cheat meals after church on Sundays. I was already down 10 lbs so I didn't overindulge:-) I still have my once a week cheat meal now. I think you look fabulous!

Way to go mama! You are looking GREAT! And yes, that 30 day challenge does work but it is no joke! The first 4 days are the hardest and then it's a breeze!
