Hi all! I’ve been super occupied this past week and haven’t been doing much blogging. My oldest daughter has this week and the next off from school, and we’ve been having a wonderful time hanging out together. We’ve been going to the gym, swimming, and planning my youngest daughter’s super, fantastic, disco birthday party on Friday. (I can’t say too much about it since I know my youngest reads my blog!)
I’ve also been doing a great deal of crafting, and after some urging from friends and family, I’ve decided to try my hand at some craft shows. My awesome younger daughter has already designed a logo for my bags, labels, and business cards. (I’ll post some pics later; I need to take some first!)
In weight loss news, I think I’ve finally hit a plateau. I weighed myself today at the gym and I weigh only a few ounces less than I did last Wednesday. This is frustrating because I’ve really upped my workouts. Hopefully, it’s because I’ve replaced some of my fat with muscle mass. I’m actually pretty happy with the size I am now. I’m wearing size 10 pants and either a large or extra large top (because of my chest). My arms and legs are more toned than they’ve been since I was in my 20s! Lately, I’ve really been focusing on my core strength and am beginning to see some definition in my upper abs. My lower abs might be a lost cause after two kids! The doctor would like to see me drop 10 more pounds in order for my BMI to be in a normal weight range. I’m following everything she and my trainer tell me to do. I guess it’s not a myth that the last 10 pounds are the hardest!
Hope everyone is doing well and enjoying the gorgeous summer weather!
Any thoughts on how to get these stubborn last 10 pounds gone?
