My Weight Loss Progress

What's Next

So I am trying to figure out what my plan should be. Travis has been talking about starting a new program P90X, it is a 90 day plan and would help him to stay in shape and build muscle. This sounds nice figuring that we could do it together and hold each other accountable. I also have a gym membership and could go do work outs on the days that Hudson has preschool or I could even take him as they have childcare provided. However, it hard to decide what to do with the baby. Dont really want to put her in childcare. I have seen moms leave them in the car seat and put it by the treadmill but this seems dirty to me and I have a treadmill at home so not worth the hassel. I have formed a little walking clan. I literally had 10 friends that were pregnant at similar times. One had her baby two weeks before me and one will have hers two weeks after. We have already started walking on Tues and Friday and enjoying the Greenbelt. Much easier when I can just take the baby (the other two friends only have one baby) and Hudson would want to run around.

I have had some self realization while thinking about all of this. #1 I am addicted to carbs. I love bread, snacks and mostly sweets! I think I really need to get a handle on that. I dont want to cut carbs but if I could just avoid the extra treats that would be great!

I am also trying to figure out the root cause of this weight gain as I never struggled as a child/teen. Actually growing up I was one of the smallest kids in my class both height and weight. I watch the biggest loser and every contestant has something going on mentally/emotionally. This has made me think..what could my problem be. The funny thing is, I can't seem to put my finger on it. I live in a beautiful place, I have been blessed with a wonderful husband and two children, I have a good job, good friends and luckily we have never really had to struggle financially. So what might it be? There are a few things that I can think of...but they if that is causing it, it must be subconscious because I definitely am not losing sleep over it.

I've also been thinking that I should sign myself up for a 5K run or something. So that I will have something to accomplish with in a specified amount of time. This might help to keep me motivated as well.
