Eat it June 19, 2008

That’s what I want to do.  Eat.  Whatever I want, whenever I want.

But, I still want to lose another 10 lbs.

So, it looks like I will unfortunately have to start exercising.  I’m not inactive. I play with the kids, take long walks pushing the stroller, swimming, yard work, etc.  I can’t remember the last time I broke a sweat though.

I have convinced Jordan to start running with me.  I’m actually excited for it! I read a book that outlines a 13 week program, we invested in a double running stroller and we are set to go as soon as I get myself some proper runners.

I’ve wanted to start running for awhile.  I ran a bit in highschool and I attempted to start up again a few years ago and even went out to buy fancy running shoes.  But now with Jordan doing it with me, I really think we’ll be successful.  My excuse was always lack of time or what do we do with the kids but those problems are solved with the double running stroller we got.

I’m pretty much sick of watching what I eat.  I can focus on eating healthy and in moderation and forget about point tracking, calorie counting and so on.   I know this will likely result in slower weight loss but I’m o.k. with that.  Slow and steady wins the race right?   I look forward to getting active, losing a few pounds, feeling healthy and fit.

Wish us luck.


Immunization Talk June 4, 2008

I’ve made some decisions about immunizations for my girls that I am feeling quite good about.  For those of you who are also trying to make that big decision, I thought this website might provide some eye opening information.


Do check it out. Some startling stats there!


I also found this book extremely helpful and honest.  Listed all the pros and cons.  It wasn’t written by a doctor who thinks that immunizations are cruicial, but it wasn’t written by a mom who’s sure her son’s autism is linked to vaccinations.  A good middle ground.


It’s called What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Children’s Vaccinations by S. Cave:
