Scales and Sidewalks

It has been a great week when it comes to my current goals in the weight loss department. 

I am happy to say that since last Sunday, I have lost 6 pounds!


It has been difficult. Cutting sugar out of my diet is really hard, the cravings the first few days was unbearable. I even cheated and had a cookie on Monday and a piece of pizza on Wednesday. But I still lost some weight and I am excited to keep moving forward. 

I haven't made it to the gym yet. The Hubs and I are still debating whether or not we should go. I don't remember it being so expensive when the had our membership the last time. It is currently $55 a month. Which I can surely work into my monthly budget. My husband however, looks at expenses in terms of a yearly overhead cost, which would be $660. Looking at it that way sure does make it look like a lot of money.

His thought, "Why spend so much money to go run on a treadmill when you have a perfectly good 'free' sidewalk right outside our front door?" Ugh... I hate it when he's right.  So we'll have to see how the whole gym membership thing goes later. I would really like to attend the "Mommy and Me" swim class when Zoie is 6 months old. He I and both think that would be fun and beneficial. So we'll probably re-address the issue then. Until then, the sidewalk it is. I sure hope this unusually warm weather we've been having sticks around.

Well Friends, I am off to Zoie's two month check up this morning. Lots of shots :( Wish us luck, I might need it more than her.

Happy Monday
