So I've been MIA, my apologies. I haven't gone anywhere, done anything fun, or have a really good excuse. If there is anyone I can blame it on, it would be my daughters. I am finding my life pretty busy with these to little ones. By the end of the day I am so spend physically and emotionally I can't wait to just plop on the couch and get lost in TV land. I honestly never knew it would be this exhausting being a SAHM, or Mom for that matter. The days seem like a blur of meal times, screaming, dirty diapers, squabbling, whining, Mickey Mouse clubhouse and a few smiles and of course tons of laundry.

I haven't even thought much about weight loss. I thought a bit about it when I watch Oprah earlier this week, with all her before/after people, but honestly didn't find it overly motivating. Usually those types of shows get me back on track. I am holding about 245, I'd love to be in touch with the 30's as I think that would be a big boost, but honestly this time of year I know it's best if I can just 'hover' at my current weight. So come January I will have to re-evaluate my goals. When I started in June I know I hoped to be close to 200 by Christmas/New Years...but also I wasn't planning on have a 1.5y/o join our family in the fall either. Now I will be lucky to be around 200 by my 35th b-day in June...on well, If I do that then I'd have lost 65lbs in a year, which is nothing to snuff off.

My hubby and I are planning our first Date Night in a looooong time. We never really needed them till now. We are realizing with the 2 little ones we are getting no quality time together and just feel stressed out at the end of the day. So we have a sitter (2 actually) for Saturday night and are doing some shopping, then diner and maybe a movie...I am excited but of course a bit nervous leaving our girls, and having someone else put them down...but it's gotta happen sometime.

So though it's been 2 weeks since my last post...nothing much has changed. I am boring, sorry.

From one boring mom to another- glad to hear from you again... I think it's great to set realistic goals and it sounds like you are doing just that... I can't imagine how stressful it would be to add an 18 month old to my family! Hang in- it really does get easier, I promise.
