First Family Photos Scheduled and Weight Loss Goal 1/2 Way Mark Reached!
I like my titles to tell you exactly what you're about to read :)
I have officially scheduled our first family photos for the first week in June! I wanted it to be as close to his 1 year as I could get it. I love love love photography, so finding the perfect photographer was going to take some searching. After doing a google search, I was shocked to see just how many local photographers there were. I went through almost all of them, but none grabbed my attention...I like a very informal look, nothing too posed or old school...you know, when they place your hand on someones shoulder and tilt her head slightly to the side? Yeah, none of that. Finally, I came across Artsy Phartsy Photography! Don't you love the name? I spent a good 45 minutes checking out her photo's and decided to book! So what does this milestone in our family mean? I have a few more weeks to shed some more weight, which brings me to another update on my WEIGHT LOSS JOURNEY TO 30.
Me 15 lbs lighter :) 15 more to go!
As of this past weekend, I have officially made it to my 1/2 way mark - 15 lbs. It's been nice fitting into all my pre-baby clothes...they even fit a little looser! Heeeeey! :) I would like to lose 5-6 more lbs before picture time, so I've got to buckle down. As of last week, this is what I've been roughly doing...
Monday - 2 mile run. I HATE Mondays, so getting on the treadmill is an accomplishment in itself, but I know once I get past Monday, I am pretty motivated through the rest of the week. Sorry if I sound like Garfield the Cat.
Tuesday - 3 - 4 miles
Wednesday - 1hr Zumba
Thursday - 5 miles
I need to start throwing in some strength training somewhere. I do have the P90X dvd's, but good Lord those are hard! I'll take any workout tips :) Any encouragement would be appreciated as well :) Here, I'll start you off... "Go Cristal! You are so freakin' awesome, you've got this in the bag!"
