Christmas Early!

I have been begging for a treadmill or elliptical so I can cancel my gym membership. I really only go for cardio. I am a workout at home kinda girl. We can't have a treadmill because we live on the second floor and my husband said the people below us would hear the pounding. ( I wanted it anyway because the people below us win the award for most obnoxious neighbors) But...I finally convinced my husband and I got an elliptical machine!! It is my Christmas present early- I am so excited. It has to be in our bedroom, which is sort of an eye sore, but I'd rather look at the elliptical then my fat stomach.

 Now I can workout when the baby is home and I don't have to find time to make it to the gym. I felt like a horrible mom leaving him at the sitter longer just so I could work out.

I have no excuse for not loosing this weight. I thought it would be gone by now, but that is not the case. My new goal is on or before his first birthday- March 23rd.

Hi Sam, I stumbled onto your blog and I love it. I am a teacher too and I can totally relate. I have a tenure position, which I love but at times feels like jail because positions are so hard to come by...I'm nervous for when I need to start a family! Good luck with the weight, u look great btw, don't be too hard on yourself. Thanks for the honesty in your blog, sometimes reading about perfect husbands and belts over cardigans can be a bit much!

Lex, I am so happy you stumbled upon my little blog. My life isn't glamorous or perfect, but it's mine. I understand about being nervous, I felt the same way until our little man joined the team, and he changed my views a bit.
