I've never been athletic and only recently got into shape for the first time. Before that, I was amorphous. ;-)

Since having a baby, it's harder to dedicate time to myself for working out, even though I'm only working part-time. She's a good-natured girl and often lets me work out while watching me, so I should take advantage of that more often. I get a work out, and she sees Mom being active: win-win!

I know that little changes really do add up, as I lost ten pounds recently participating in my office's Biggest Loser (and won). I've just updated my Sparkstreaks and am going to try and maintain them as faithfully as I can.

Being on a tighter budget has meant fewer desserts and really making the most of our veggies, so it's a good thing for us.

As for my goals... you know that scene in American Beauty?
Lester Burnham: I figured you guys might be able to give me some pointers. I need to shape up. Fast.
Jim Olmeyer: Are you just looking to lose weight, or do you want increased strength and flexibility as well?
Lester Burnham: I want to look good naked!

That might be over-simplified. :-P I don't have a goal weight in mind, though I'd rather not go over 155. I want my clothes to feel good, and it's not untrue to say I'd like to feel good without as well!

Thanks for commenting on my latest blog. I just uploaded some pics on a new short blog that show the blouse that I was talking about! You are right, there is nothing wrong with enjoying the fruits of the having done a good job! emoticon

I love birth stories too :). I had always heard 24 hours after the water breaks, so it didn't seem strange to me, but I think even if I'd had 48 hours, I probably still would have ended up with Pitocin. Eh.. I might do a little more research on that timing to be ready for next baby, though.

Thank you for commenting on my blog. Yes, the picture in the background of my sparkpage is the mountain by where I live. It is beautiful to see the mountains in the horizon, especially in the mornings when I run. Thank you for celebrating with me! emoticon

Thank you for commenting on my blog. Yes, you are right, moving to a new place is very stressful. It is getting much better already! It was still stressful after the move for a couple of days because we had to organize all of our stuff into new places, as you have to do with a new location. That in itself is very stressful. I did get things where they need to be and since about yesterday, the house has been running smoothly. It is so nice to get back to normal. I am enjoying my day more knowing that I do not have to do any major work in one place or another. Home is where we go to relax, and I am beginning to be able to do that now. Thank you for your comment, and for making the effort to say some encouraging words even if your internet was not working right the night before. I appreciate that! Say hello to little Jane for me! emoticon
