100th Post

I just saw that this is my 100th post. It's customary to post 100 things about yourself. Since I had planned to take several days working on it I'm unprepared for 100. I had something else in mind to post about this morning anyway. So....my 100th post will be more like 105 or something. :)

On to my post.

Has anyone noticed how fit my family is getting??? Not my kids but my siblings and their spouses?? Take Mama Lily for example, she has lost over 35 pounds since January. Now that was hard work, and she's sticking to it. Shagga Bear and her husband have been doing the South Beach diet faithfully for several weeks now. They both are losing weight and looking good. My husband has started working out at the rec center with Gary, a friend from church. They all seem to be doing great at their respective goals even if it is tough going sometimes.
My local MOPS group did a Biggest Loser Challenge this spring and several people lost a lot including the winner Tracy who looks amazing.
I however have just been coasting along. I got pregnant in December and all reasonable thought pretty much left my head. Therefore I'm going to make a few mid-pregnancy resolutions. I am going to walk daily, either in the morning when Nathan is home or in the evening after the kids are in bed. I'm going to drink only water, or water with lemon, and limit myself to ONE Dr. Pepper a week. I'm going to cut out my all day snacking habits and focus on good well thought out meals. Starting with dinner tonight. Yes, I do know what is for dinner!!! YEA ME! So, those of you who know me can encourage me. I want to finish this pregnancy in better shape than when I started. And there's no time like the present.

That's wonderful. I know you can do it. Just eat lots of veggies and lean meat. The walking will help give you more energy, too.

Good for you. The hardest part is just getting started. After that, it's all about making it part of your daily routine. I know you can do it! Call me whenever you need encouragement!!!

You go girl!
I think your husband may have some activity suggestions. You should ask him :-P

Good for you! Better to be motivated now than be depressed after baby comes! Summer is the best and easiest time of the year to get healthy! Warm air easier to walk in and lots of fresh stuff around. Good luck!!! A couple of us that worked out at NAC are gonna start walking on Monday nights after our kiddos are down if you wanna join us!
