I'm getting the hang of it now but still learning to function on less sleep. We dropped Madison off at school this morning and came home to nap. I woke up after the nap and looked at the clock. Oh no Maddie is going to be late this morning we over slept. A minute later I realized that we had already taken her to school. I'm losing it! I think the lack of sleep is finally catching up with me. I'm looking forward to the up coming break for Maddie because that means I can go back to sleep after feeding Delana instead of getting up and getting Maddie ready for school. It will be nice. Of course I will have to find a way to entertain Maddie. Should be easy enough.

Here's a two for one.

I'm so frustrated with myself right now. I keep thinking that I want to start exercising but I just can't do it. I'm freaking out because Delana isn't on a schedule. She does eat around the same time everyday but sometime she sleeps more or wants to eat more. I am freaked out about going for a walk because I'm thinking she might get hungery and scream for the half an hour I'm gone. That would be super stressful for me. Nursing is convient yet also has it's drawbacks like, making it harder for someone to babysit. Right now I'm trying to figure it out but I just don't feel like I'm doing a very good job. I'm doing good with the way things are now but I want to add in time for exercise and cleaning everyday. It's not working! I also want to be able to get a shower in everyday and preferably around the same time everyday. I'm thinking that I might be expecting to much too soon but I swear there are ladies who do it! I'm just not one of them. I am trying, I feel like I can do it but it's just not working. Am I supposed to try harder or wait for it to work out on it's own?

Madison and I watched the Biggest Loser tonight, we have watched the other seasons together too. I recorded the second hour so we could watch it together on Thursday night or tomorrow after school. I'm excited for this season because I know that I can now begin my own weight loss journey. I'm no longer pregnant so I can lose weight. I'm nursing so I will have to make sure that I'm still eating enough and don't over do it. While I was still pregnant I ran some numbers. If I lose ONLY a pound for the next year I will be at the exact weight I was when I met Paul, which wasn't super skinny but I felt good at that weight. I would be twenty pounds over my ideal weight, the hight side of the ideal weight. My ideal weight according to Weight Watchers is 117 to 146 pounds. Quit honestly I think I might look sick if I weighed 117 pounds, but who knows. If I lost one and a half pounds over the next year I would reach my goal weight according to me and also be in my ideal weight range.
Now the qestion comes....... how will I achieve this goal? Since I am not even three weeks postpartum I don't want to over due it so WALKING! I'm going to start out by just walking Madison to school. Walking her to school is about a mile and a half. I'm also going to do Weight Watchers online. I will add to the workouts a little at a time, working up tothree or four mile walks. I will also throw in some workouts on the ellipitical trainer and strenght trainning. I will test this out and make adjustments as needed. Here I go..... at this time next I will be at my goal!

Delana got her first bath today. Madison was the photographer and also helped with the bath a little too. Delana didn't like the water but liked Madison rubbing the lotion on.
