Mommy’s MILF Misson Mondays – Week 9

Totally didn’t update last week.

Chunkz had a rough week sleeping AND had a top tooth pop through so the whole house was running on fumes.  Some how, amongst the over-exhaustion, I managed to lose 4 lbs, and over 4 more inches from my body.  Don’t worry, this past week, with absolutely zero excuses, besides being a lazy f&%! and not making my health a priority, I gained 2 of them back…  I’m pretty convinced they are just water weight from the sh*t I was eating, because I don’t think I ate an excess of 7,000 calories, but I guess we’ll find out next week.

I’m actually writing this on Tuesday night right now, while drinking a beer.  I’ve been so lazy and distracted lately, I’d completely forgotten to post until after 10pm last night and I was too busy watching #TheBachelorette.  #TeamPeter

Subconsciously, and consciously, I think I’ve been celebrating the fact I’m down a total of 40 lbs since Chunkz popped out of my poonahnah!  It has been a long, and sometimes difficult road and times, but I am SO EFFING PROUD OF MYSELF!  I still have 25 more pounds to go to reach my pre-pregnancy weight, but the light at the end of the tunnel is a lot closer these days.

If you saw what Dakota makes me keep in the cupboards for him, my weight-loss would seem even more impressive.

The Tone It Up! Bikini Series has officially wrapped.  I lost 20 lbs in 8 weeks, which is exactly what my goal was when I began.  They have another summer challenge happening soon that I’ll be partaking in but my goal will be to stick with the workouts daily.  There was definitely some slacking happening during the last few weeks.  Fall down 7 times, stand up 8, right?

Honestly, a big part of my workout slacking is owed to the fact I can barely even walk these days with my and knee and hip.  When I started my weight-loss journey I was walking no less than 5 miles a day, but I’ve had to significantly slow my roll until I can get my body fixed.

While I’m grateful to have ANY medical insurance, mine is pretty lame and it has been a ridiculous amount of time in between x-rays and follow-up appointments to make much progress.  I go back to the doctor in July and hopefully they have some answers for me.  It’s so bad these days that I almost took myself to the ER today but my honey had the day off, and he doesn’t get many, so I wanted to spend time together as a family.  I’m doing my best to patiently wait for my doctor’s appointment but between the swelling and pain, it’s been rough.

Anyone else do the thing where they try to get in their last bit of junk food before their big healthy eating adjustments?  That was me today.  I had a carnitas quesadilla for lunch and within an hour and felt like I was going to sh*t up all of Hermosa Beach…

jinkin’ with the loves of my life

I just need to keep pumping myself up.  It would also help if I would reward myself with sensible and healthy choices when I reach a weight-loss milestone.  Like a manicure.  Or a new SUV.

Oh wait, we did that…  That’s right folks, I’m officially an SUV momma, and honestly, I feel pretty effing sexy driving my “Black Magic” Mommy Mobile around.  I named her black magic because she’s black, and everything is magic.  Chunkz is really enjoying her new ride now that the sun doesn’t blast her in the face anytime we are driving East after 2pm.

I can’t wait to see what new magic comes into my life when I lose the remaining 35 lbs!  I’ve said it before when I’ve lost weight, and I’ll say it again.  When I lose extra weight, I find myself.

And suddenly, everything is perfect.
