Help Needed!

I have been struggling over the past several months, heck maybe since Harrison was born, with being an emotional eater. I LOVE food and use it as a reward as well as just plain wanting to eat in any state of mind.

I loved being pregnant! I loved having my belly grow over the course of 9 months! After Harrison was born I used the excuse that I was breastfeeding so I could eat whatever. After breastfeeding came to an end at 8 months I figured I had til Harison was a year old to get back to my pre-pregrancy weight. Harrison is 15 months old and I weigh more now then I ever have (except for when I was pregnant). I believe that after having a baby your weight shifts and settles wherever it likes. I really dislike where I am as far as my figure and my desire to have such bad habits. I need help! I also want to be healthy for myself and my family. I want to live a long energtic life.

After several months of research and talking to friends I have decided to join Weight Watchers starting September 1st. I need to be held accountable! Bill tries so hard to be my cheerleader and accountability partner but I more times then not frustrated with him when he tries to help.

Here's to new adventures!

Boot Camp

Monday was the start of a month long boot camp at Riley Athletics,

I bought this amazing Groupon in effort to support my friends' husband who owns Riley Athletics but also because I am ready for a change! Boot Camp is Monday, Wednesday and Thursday from 7-7:30pm. Monday night was amazing and empowering! I never sweat so much...and loved it! On Tuesday morning I felt a little sore, mostly in my abs but my energy level was amazing all day. On Tuesday Harrison and I walked to the Zoo to meet with friends and then walk back home. Round trip it was 4 miles. I was so proud of myself!
Tonight was another hard core sweat feast even thought my abs have not quite recovered from Monday. I am so glad to be in boot camp and looking forward to tomorrow night. I NEVER thought I would EVER do boot camp and really love it.

On the Move!

While Nana was here we spent lots of time at Golden Garden, a beach with an awesome new playground.) Harrison loved playing peek-a-boo!

While at the beach Harrison had a great time playing in the sand! He was a bit unsure at first but then he sat down and played hard. He loved picking up the sand by the fist full and then letting the sand slide through his fingers.

All Smiles...all the time!

Harrison warmed up to Nana quickly! He was generous with his kisses and hugs. Nana also witnessed Harrison walking across the living room for the first time.

Look Mommy I'm walking! Harrison really started walking two weeks ago and there is nothing holding him back!
