WHOA!!! 2 Posts in one day?! This is a first! In light of my last post I thought I need to take the time to write out some goals.
1) eating healthier - If Id like to eat something unhealthy, I will make sure the thing I ate before that was healthy and the thing I eat afterward is healthy. (To keep the unhealthy foods at a minimum!)
2) workout when I can - TRY to workout 3 times a week at least.
3) stick to a budget - skim through Financial Peace again with my husband Shaun and come up with a budget for December and STICK TO IT.
4) keep up with friends better - call one friend a week that I havent seen or talked to in a while.
5) Reach out to other ladies at church. Talk to someone new each week.
6) be more prepared for Praise Band practice. Listen to the songs ahead of time and practice on my own time.
7) put clothes away at the end of the day - dont let them pile up all week.
8) Pray daily! Set aside time to get quiet and just talk to God.

Hopefully by the next time I write I will be able to say I am doing well at 3 of the areas.

large and in charge

Although I'm not at the point where I should call myself large (although, yes - I am in charge - of some things I guess), I can definitely see myself fitting that description in a few months. I'm not sure how much I've talked about it on here, but at a couple different points in my recent years I've eaten extremely healthy or at least mostly. I have followed the Maker's Diet and I still try to some degree. However, I find myself eating Eggo waffles for breakfast and throwing away rotten celery and carrots and plums that I never ate. I have only gained 3 lbs this pregnancy (Im 17 weeks along so thats pretty normal I think) I feel SO out of shape! Im surprised I haven't gained more although I guess chasing kids around every day is my saving grace. Dont get me wrong, I know it's probably annoying for pregnant women to complain about gaining weight because its supposed to happen, right? But the fact is, I have nothing to complain about if I've only gained 3 lbs...I just FEEL so out of shape! And I definitely notice area's on my body that are fatty. I LOVE being pregnant and I know its possible to feel beautiful even when you have a huge belly! With Wil, my second boy, I felt so skinny even though I had a huge belly because I was working out a lot since I worked at a gym. I'm not a morning person, so getting up early to work out sound horrible to me and my boys nap at different times, not to mention I watch kids almost every day at my house, so working out while the kids nap is not practical either. by the end of the day, Im way too exhausted to work out! ugh...I guess I will have to either push through the procrastination and just find time to do it, or wait till life gets a little less crazy. I guess for now, I'll just have to make healthier choices with what I eat. How do you guys stay feeling beautiful, and healthy?
