Living healthy as a busy Mom with two little boys

When my oldest son turned one we bought him this play house.  It remained a favorite toy of his until probably the last 6 months or so (right around when he turned 3, which is the upper limit of the manufacturer recommendation).  Now his 14 month old brother loves to play with it.  In the approximately 2 1/2 years that we have had this toy, I have never been able to squeeze myself through the door opening.  I decided to give it a try today and …… I made it.  I didn’t even have to suck anything in.  Now granted, I more or less slithered through on my tummy, but anyone in an adult sized body would have to do that since it is meant for 1-3 year olds.

I just love that I can fully play with my kids now, not just chase them around, but through, the play house too.  And that is better than any number on a scale.

One great benefit of losing weight is that old clothes fit, or at least fit better.  I’ve been enjoying going through old drawers and pulling things out that fit again.  I’ve also been more interested in making sure my hair looks nice, because I want my outside to look as good as I feel on the inside.

But this post isn’t about old clothes fitting.  It’s about this:










My BEAUTIFUL engagement/wedding rings are back on my finger!  I took them off in August 2008 when I was experiencing some major finger swelling while in my second trimester of pregnancy with C.  Now over 3 years and a whole other pregnancy later and the rings are back where they belong.   That has been one of my motivations so I’m definitely excited.  I can’t wait for the boys’ naptime so I can go workout.
