A New Start

When I started this blog, I wasn't really sure what I wanted it to be.  And to be honest, I'm still not sure.  An online record maybe?  Somewhere for my kids to come in later years and read about the crazy train we were riding?

Yesterday, I realized that this blog will be whatever it ends up being.  And I figured this was a good day to get back into my blogging!

I've made the choice to reclaim my health.  I used to be thin and fit.  Post college, post 2 babies, post desk job...I"m not any more.  I'm significantly overweight.  In the next year, I'm looking to drop around 75 lbs.  A good friend of mine turned me onto Jillian Michael's Total Body Revolution.  It's a 90 day program and she went down 6 pant sizes.  It gives me hope.

Since I'm breastfeeding, I can't do the full diet program.  I have to maintain a certain amount of calories so that I'm still making enough milk for my daughter.  So I don't know that I'll lose quite as much as my friend but every little bit helps!

So I'll try and check in every week.  I've done two days of Jillian plus an extra 60 squats today.  when I weighed myself yesterday I was 204.8lbs.  So lets see where I am next week!
