Operation Get Fit Update

I'm definitely a turtle when it comes to...well anything really. I eat slow, I achieve slow and apparently I "get fit" slow. In case you are wondering, it's been since September that I did an Operation Get Fit update. If you are new-ish here, it's gone something like this…I had  a baby (last December), did a Dr. Oz Cleanse (in July) and a little hot yoga and calorie counting (in September)


For Comparison…


Waist: (Above belly button) 26in (-5in)*Total inches lost
                                              (At belly button because I feel this is my trouble spot) 33.5 in (-3.5in)
Hips: 36in (-3in)
Thighs: 21in (-1in)
Calves: 14.5in (-.5in)
Arms: 10.5in (-.5in)
Weight: -11lbs (3-ish pounds to go!)

I'm at a happy weight number-wise. I'm 2 pounds below where I was pre-Ethan and 9 pounds more than where I was pre-Jackson. I've got 3 pounds to be at goal weight but I'm pretty much there. 

Diet-wise, I've stopped counting calories. We have made the switch to *mostly* clean eating. In full disclosure we do still eat out (including fast food) from time to time. I've never been one to swear off anything fully, but we have cut down on eating out quite a bit. It's amazing how unfulfilling fast food is once you start eating clean. As far as what we are eating at home, we have been using eMeals to plan our lunches and dinner and I've been loving it. It is so nice to have a shopping list and menu all planned out for you with healthy options that fit your dietary needs. Seriously, the amount of time I've saved is worth every penny and it didn't even cost me that many pennies. I found a great deal on Groupon that will be covering all of 2014's lunch and dinner plans. 

eMeals - Easy Meals for Busy People!

My stomach is still my trouble spot. I've discovered that my abs are still pretty severely separated. I'm planning on seeing our family doctor to discuss what the best course of action is around the first of the year. For now, I'm not doing any particular ab exercises in fear that I will worsen the situation. So, I'm at a standstill really. It's disheartening, but at the moment, it's just something beyond my control. 

I may not be where I want to be, but I do feel 75% back to normal I'd say. Last time I checked that was passing. I'll continue on cleaning up my eating and hopefully get some sort of plan for this ab situation around the first of the year. 

For now, I'll just keep reminding myself of this..."Slow and steady wins the race.".

  1. Lookin good mama!! And if I've learned's been to give myself time after those babies. With both boys it seems like 18 months post baby is my sweet spot. When my hormones and body are back to my "normal." Keep up the good work and remember your body just did an amazing thing!

  2. Girl you look great! And you've almost talked me into these emeals!

  3. Amazing results!!! When losing weight losing it slowly is the best way to do it. It will stay off! You have done so awesome! You should be super proud :D

  4. also, I wish I could quit counting calories!!! I messed myself up pretty bad, by going to the bare minimum for so long. Had to do a reverse diet. And now I'm up a lot of calories and working on losing the rest of the weight.

  5. GIRL!!! Looking amazing! Way to go!

  6. You look fantastic! I wish I had your figure!
