As exercise 1 continues to get easier I continue to see a difference in the way I look and feel. I hate working out. I hate getting sweaty and I hate the way I jiggle when I do jumping jacks. I hate the jiggle the most. Therefore I will continue to workout and and sweat until the only things on my body that jiggle are the ta-tas (sorry mom).
I did something awesome yesterday. I made it through all the cardio circuits without having to stop and catch my breath. I'm pretty sure my text to Brady read something like this, "Dude. I am so freakin skinny. And awesome. Mostly awesome." In real life I stripped down to my sports bra, closed my eyes, and uttered "I'm gonna die" about 3456247542 times from the floor.
The floor is my new bff. I spend lots of time there.
Then Avey started fussing so I got off the floor and we did this:
Last night Brady asks, "Is that a photo of you nursing?"
Brit: Because it's a beautiful thing and I don't want to forget it so I took a picture.
Yup. Pretty sure he thinks I'm nuts. Honestly 4 months ago I would have thought the same but we worked hard for that. Breastfeeding is NOT easy when you have a baby that was bottle fed straight out of the womb. There were many tears shed and I want to remember what we achieved. I can't really explain it. I used to think breastfeeding (lets count how many times I mention boobs in this post) was kinda icky. I used to wish that there were laws that prevented women from being able to do it in public. Now I realize just how silly I was. It is so far from icky.
It's kinda awesome.
I'm really enjoying "skinny" food. I really haven't had many problems with temptation because I spoil myself with things like:
1 pizza crust (homemade or store boughtyou can have whatever you like)
2 big handfuls of spinach
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 medium onion, chopped
salt and pepper
nutmeg, to taste
1 cup feta cheese crumbles
1/2 of a tomato
- In a large skillet saute the garlic and onions until tender. About 3-4 minutes.
- Add spinach to the garlic and onions and wilt.
- Season with salt, pepper, and a little bit of nutmeg.
- Top the pizza crust with the spinach mixture then top that with the feta.
- Place pizza in oven and bake according to the directions on crust.
- When the pizza comes out of the oven top with tomatoes, oregano, and black pepper.
