I manage a country homestead and the lives of my 4 babies ages 10,8,5 and 3. I LOVE TO RUN and NEED to keep healthy and fit for my SANITY!! Seriously....All problems are solved when I am running.

Making MY health a priority allows me to be the mother and wife that I need to be for them.

Down a Few

O.K, so I really WAS BLOATED!! Yay! I am only 138...not 143. That makes me feel better.

To answer your question/comments....

I only weigh myself once every 2 weeks to keep track and put it in my baby log...
The midwives scale is the same as mine....
I'm not dieting...just trying to eat the best I can and deal with the weight gain...
I know what it is like to be chubby...and remember all the crappy feelings that come with it...and don't want to feel like that ever again. I know I'll lose the weight, but I also HATE having to lose weight at all!! When I'm healthy and at a good weight, my weight is NOT EVEN AN ISSUE. I never have to wake up in the morning and 'feel fat', or try on everything in my closet until I don't 'look fat'. This is why I work out....this is why I'm Proud to BE a Fit Mom. I don't like it being an issue, and can't wait for it to not be again.....make sense??

Anyway....moving on.

Today I spent the morning transplanting bushes and trees from my In-laws to our property.
I'm tired.
My belly hurts.
I'll be on my butt on the comfy couch the rest of the day.
I need to remember my limits.

Balance...Balance is my mantra Today. and remembering to wear my belly band next time as well ;)
