Wellness Wednesday

When your mind says you can’t tell your body to push harder!!

That’s my new motto and if I’m not mistaken I think I made it up. It might not be the catchiest thing out there but it works for me! I have learned that for me personally my mind gives up before my body and if I can push through it than I can keep going a lot more than I thought!

This past week I have been working out a lot more! I have been doing t25 and then running after! I don’t know why but its easiest for me to run after doing t25. I’m guessing it’s because I already have my body in motion. Either way I have been trying to push my limits lately. You have to push hard in order to see results. With that being said I have had a couple slips up this past week. I  gave in to cake on memorial day, and buns! Plus on Friday I went to a local winery and indulged in whine and the best brick oven pizza ever!!!!!
I mean doesn’t this look delish?!

With that being said who say healthy can’t be just as equally delicious! I made these amazing Quinoa Stuffed bell peppers last week that were finger licking good! Here is the recipe that I found of Pinterest! I did add some ground beef to make it a little more filling but for my first time trying quinoa I was in love!

Goal Update
I lost two pounds this week. I still have four more pounds until I meet my first goal but I will keep pushing through!

Lastly here is some great baby spam(;

Have a wonderful day!

The Most Embarrassing Thing I Have Ever Done!

Today is the Day…It’s not a big day but it’s an important day! My husband and I have chosen to start to eat a lot healthier/cleaner! I know saying it is a lot easier than actually doing it but we are really hoping to stick to this and hopefully I can develop and establish a support system that will keep me accountable! I know some days will be harder than others but I plan on allowing myself to have two cheat meals a week which I think will help me with sticking to the plan.  I think for me my biggest obstacles will be sweets and carbs because when it comes to that I am a junkie! I love brownies, pasta and breads but I hope that my want for be healthier outdoes my love for food! I want to be able wear cute dresses and shorts and feel good about it! I want to be able to go the lake and feel comfortable. I hate the feeling of going to a store and not being able to fit into what I want! I am doing this for me but also for ben because I don’t want my son to be overweight or think its ok to have a unhealthy lifestyle.  If we establish healthy lifestyle hopefully my son won’t know anything different other than a healthy lifestyle and that’s what I want!  I know that it will be a struggle especially because of my hypothyroidism but I hope that my determination out does my frustration!

In order to really keep accountable I have to do this no matter how embarrassing it is!
My start weight is 191
This is my body unedited six weeks after having a baby
Please don’t judge!

I believe in little victories so my first goal is to be 185 and fit in this swimsuit comfortably!

Dont mind my wonderful faces

Yeah I know its not a pretty site but im working on it!
Well there it!
The good the bad and the ugly!
 Hopefully with your help and support I can become a better version of who I am!

Have a wonderful Day
