Week 2 results!!!

As everyone has seen, I did pretty well last week and I was so proud of myself!! I lost a whopping 3 pounds last week, which I am sure was due to the fact that I was getting at least 30 minutes of exercise in each day (5 out of 7 days isn't bad!!). I was so shocked when I stepped on the scale, I couldn't stop smiling!!! I think I finally have the hang of this, and the eating right part has gotten so much easier...I don't even have to think about it anymore! I love it!!!

I was going to post yesterday but our boy caught some sort of virus and I spent the day cleaning up after him and watching him to make sure he was OK. Luckily we took our baby in for her 4 month appointment and we were able to have the doctor check out our son too. We were going to go to Disneyland yesterday to celebrate our oldest's birthday, but she was very understanding when we explained we couldn't go because her brother was sick. We had a great Dr.'s appointment with our youngest, she gained 2 pounds and over 5 inches in the past 2 months!! She's our tiniest baby, coming in at about 12.5 pounds and 24 inches at 4 months...it's weird because she's average, but seems small to us when our other 2 kids at this same age were over 20 pounds!! We are finally getting some good use out of our first daughter's hand-me-down clothes!! Ironically, this last baby was 9 pounds, 2 ounces when she was born...the largest newborn...go figure =)

So, today is a much better day and I'm hoping to get some exercise in later while the 2 youngest are napping. I'm thinking about having a delicious salad with some hard-boiled eggs and light Blue Cheese dressing for lunch...and Taco Salad for dinner tonight (at the request of the hubby!!).  What are you having for breakfast/dinner??

Congrats to all the other contestants, we are doing AWESOME!!!!

Congrats on the weight loss! 3 lbs is INCREDIBLE!

Breakfast today was a veggie omelette. Dinner will be my little mexican chicken creation (chicken, black beans, pico de gallo, brown rice, and a little cheese) -- so filling!

Congrats to you - you're doing great!

I hope your boy is doing much better now. Will you go to Disneyland another time - or did you do something else for the birthday?

Thanks everyone!! Unfortunately our little big guy is eating fine but has an upper respiratory infection for the record books!! I was up all night with him last night, getting only two hours of sleep then waking up at 5am to shuffle to the computer. Fit Kitty, we have passed Disneyland so we'll go on another weekday off for my husband In the near future!
