I am 9 pounds away from being back to my pre-pregnancy weight! This is so encouraging to me. I have been really trying to re-train myself to start making better decisions with eating. Y'all know me and my mad love for food. Diets are not my thing. I can never stick with them. I love food too much. I have been doing the Special K diet for the past week and I'm already starting to feel a difference in my clothes. My body is crazy. I gain weight fast if I chow like a hungry hippo and I can lose it fast if I stick with the healthy eating and move my body a little. I've been having Special K for breakfast and lunch with Special K bars in between for snaking. Not bad! I am so determined to get back in all of my clothes and can hardly wait to buy a new bikini this spring! So my goal...to be back to my pre-baby weight by April. I have to be realistic and I think April is a good goal. I am so over having a chubby tummy, never had one in my life until now. So gross. Sometimes I feel like putting a sign on me that says "just had a baby 3 months ago!, don't usually look like this!" There is nothing worse that feeling like a cow. To make it worse, my hair is absolutely out of control. I don't know what pregnancy did to me but the texture and everything changed. I had enough hair for 5 people before and know I think I have enough for 7. It has been falling out in chunks recently but can't fall out fast enough. I have been having to use "detangler". How embarrassing. What mom has to buy detangler for herself? Crazy. I am going to be getting some form of straightening treatment done soon, just not sure what one yet. I am ready to have normal hair again. Wow, that was totally off track. Anyway, I am working on a full body make over and trying to remind myself in the meantime that the Lord has made me perfect in His sight and loves me just the way I am. I am so thankful for my husband who encourages me and tells me I'm beautiful. He's too sweet. Sometimes I wonder if he's looking at the same girl I'm looking at in the mirror. haha Oh...all in time Nikki...all in time
Chris and I celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary on October 6th! We celebrated today by spending the entire afternoon and evening together, kid free. I found a killer deal for couples massages on Groupon and learned that if a deal looks too good to be true, it is. Things we've learned after 10 years of marriage; don't take yourself too seriously, laughter is the secret to a good time and chocolate makes everything ok.
