March

So March is already here, which means that I have sufficiently used up the "I have a newborn" excuse for wearing yoga pants every day. Strangers are starting to look at me, well, strangely, when I explain to them that my baby was JUST born, since he is huge and smiles and laughs at them in the grocery store. Time to shake a stick at those lingering pregnancy pounds that are still following me around like a naughty shadow!

I am an emotional eater, anyway, so pregnancy for me is pretty much a free-for-all. It's always a touch disappointing to go through labor and delivery and then discover there are STILL 30 pounds to run off.....

This week I took the bull by the horns and waved goodbye to my All Nutella, All The Time diet. I have moved on to eating meals packed full of goodness and nutrition--breakfasts of roasted yams (drizzled with a little maple syrup of course) and hardboiled eggs, lunches of asian ginger broth with tofu, peas, and brown rice, and dinners of chicken and barley with broccoli, or Brittany's black bean and salsa soup. Yum! I hardly feel like I'm getting cheated, and the scale is down three pounds in three days. Only 27 to go...

I'm inspired Kim, seriously sweet potatoes for breakfast? Today I made myself eggs instead of having 3 bowls of Kix, thank you.

Wow, I thought you could use the excuse "I just had a baby" for years! My son's almost 2, I'm way behind :o)

well, sissy, I went for a walk down the Boulevard in the sunshine today and swore goodbye to the winter pounds! My baby is 8, kids, I have no excuse at all :( Your meals sound scrumptious...
