I don't typically make New Year's Resolutions...and I suppose since I made the decision before the New Year that it doesn't really count, but this year I decided it was finally time to lose the weight that I've gradually put on since having Emma. In mid-October I joined the new YMCA in Shoreline. It was slow going at first, and can still be a struggle to get there on some days but I do try to make it almost everyday (with the exception of the arctic blast in December- two weeks stuck at home!). For the most part I enjoy working out but eating better is definitely the hardest! I've started eating Lean Cuisine's for most of my meals in hopes of re-training myself to eat smaller portions. So far that is working pretty well. I promised myself that I would be bikini ready for our trip to Mexico in August and I can't wait! I know I can do this!!
