I'm linking up with Ginger over at (not)Just Another Mom of Twins for her F.A.T Friday series.
First things first. 1.6 gain on the scale this week. I didn't really expect to lose. We were out of town for the weekend. I didn't practice great self control and I didn't really do great for the rest of the week. But I didn't lose control so I am surprised to have gained.
Additionally, for reasons I haven't figured out, my milk supply has dropped drastically this week. I went from pumping well over 20 oz in 3 pumps during the day to struggling to get 15 oz and a baby who is getting frustrated at the breast. That basically happened overnight. It is distressing for a number of reasons, including the fact that I'm not benefitting from as many milk making calories. I'm trying to fix it though and counting calories may have to go on hold until that situation is resolved.

I am pretty
Oh well, June is a new month and I am going to try to really tighten up my eating.
But I did make big strides in running. I'm on week 7 of the C25K program and currently running 25 straight minutes. My fitness is improving even if my weight isn't plummeting.
F.A.T. Friday topic for this week:
Do you set short term and/or long term goals? Are they visual? Do you "allow" yourself a reward for reaching a goal? Have you reached a goal recently? Please share!
Ahh, the answer to this question can be best answered by viewing one of my beloved spread sheets. Spreadsheets are my not so secret lover.
What I don't do is put time limits on my goals. I'll never put a goal of "losing 15 pounds by June 21". Adding a deadline to weight loss goals only adds another way to fail. A way to fail even if you have succeeded. If I only lose 13 pounds by June 21, I could easily get down on myself for not meeting my goal even though I should be celebrating losing 13 pounds. So goals? Yes! Deadlines? No!
On to June and hoping I can get it together this month.
