Hi! Thanks for the reply!

 

Actually, it's really just launching it... because I already have a bunch of blog posts written! Ugh I'm just a chicken/perfectionist. I want it to look good, be perfect, have the perfect direction plan etc... now I'm giving myself a deadline and a bunch of goals leading up to "launch" so that it gets out there..

 

I'll keep you posted. Accountability etc.

Alright..  I meant to update weekly, but I forgot how long it had been. Here follows the update.

 

It felt so good to empty my pantry of all the horrible food that was making me sick. I started the cleanse four days after this post, so I could start at the same time as my husband and a good friend. So far I've done 1.5 weeks and lost 2 kg! I'm down to my pre-pregnancy weight. YEAH BO. What most amazes me about this diet - i don't feel hungry. I'm eating plenty, my milk supply is high, I feel energetic and not hungry. I have to make myself eat dinner.

 

Walking everyday? CHECK. One day I walked for 3 hours for bonus me-points. 

 

Yoga? what is this? fail. I bought my mat today and right after this post I plan on doing a workout.

 

Website? 

 

Well - I had this plan to do a blog on a certain topic... turns out that is far too much effort when I have a little one. That idea is going on the back burner until she is no longer a baby. too bad. But - my new idea is going just swell and on schedule for launch day.

 

so far.... 75% win. :)

So glad things are going well on the eating and walking front! How cool is it that what you are eating is allowing you to loose weight and have a good milk supply? Awesome!


 


14 days to go until the challenge ends... lets do this!


 


Also... if you get a chance join us during the mini-challenge. The Druids need your help!

My cleanse is almost OVER THANK GOD. haha. It's actually been pretty good! It's difficult to find food in the netherlands that doesn't contain bread... and generally when it doesn't, it has potatoes. so I've been to shopping at the local produce market and eating a LOT of pears and mandarins and courgettes. Those seem to be what I eat the most of. and Sweet potato. I've also discovered dried dates are the best to cure chocolate cravings!

 

I did do a bit of Yoga, though I must admit my diet is the priority so I don't bother too much if I run out of time during the day (part time job and little baby and papa studying for his drivers license = no time for mummy)

 

Website? It's almost ready! woooooo.

You're doing great, keep it up!

 

If you want to work yoga into your busy schedule, you could do some poses randomly throughout the day...  Standing poses typically don't need a yoga mat, so you could do some while waiting for food to cook!  It feels great to get in the habit of exercising during times that you'd otherwise just be standing there doing nothing.  That's usually when I get my stretches in:  Waiting for water to boil and that kind of thing.  But that might just be because I'm an inefficient cook.  :P

Sweet! did Mini challenge number 2 and got me an attribute point...

 

I pick... DEX. since I won't be getting much for that. 

 

I added Eggs into my diet today and yesterday. I was REALLY sick. I'm not sure if I had a bad egg or if it was the eggs at all. possibly not since my husband felt sick too - maybe one of the ingredients in our breakfast smoothie was funny? I'll try again tomorrow and see what the reaction is.

The tip to fix yoga poses into the day is great. Also applies to checking on your posture and a few kegels now and them! It took me forever to start having better posture after my pregnancies... so checking on posture several times a day is great. :)

 

Maybe give yourself another day before you try eggs again?

 

Hmmm, I should go pick my extra attribute point. Thanks for the reminder! :)

well eggs are working out for me now. I wonder if it was just ultra sensitivity due to no eggs for three weeks? anywho - not a problem now.

 

Yoga has been going well. Not every day - I think I took on too big a goal with the yoga everyday. It's hard to find 30 mins a day for yoga. All at once anyway. I think next challenge I will aim to do one stretch a day. I plan on making a calendar with the stretch for the day, and then mark how many times I managed to do it that day. And plan on 30 mins every 3 days or something. 

 

I've also made a point of walking ALMOST everyday. A couple of days I didn't make it out, because of weather. Sleet, rain, hail and snow. I don't go out with Lorelei in that weather unless I have to for work/food shopping. But I've been for a couple of long walks - to my appointments out of the city centre. I live in the Netherlands and if you live in a centre of a small city, it is pretty expensive to own and park a car, and also a bit pointless. It would be nice to get to other cities more often (the trains are very efficient here, but still a hassle), but everything I need is within walking/biking distance. Can't bike with a 3 month old though, so some walks were longer than 1km there and back! good work out in the snow with a stroller!

 

So far I've lost 4kg! I have cheated a bit this week with valentines chocolate. And easter eggs. I think I need to buy me some dates to help with that craving. After going to the dentist for 2 fillings, they damaged some of the gum area and I have mouth ulcers again. :S the chocolate definitely aggravates it so I have to give it up to be a saturday treat. I did the four hour body diet before I got pregnant, and having a cheat day helped to keep me on track. tomorrow is Saturday, so that makes it my cheat day and then on we go with Paleo 6 days and 1 day cheat (but NEVER EVER EATING GLUTEN EVER AGAIN)

 

My blog - well... TOMORROW it will be launched! 

 

YAY!

 

:D I love this. Nerd fitness is by far been the best motivator for me to improve my life. I've really enjoyed this challenge and next challenge I plan on making it a goal to get more involved with the community. I've loved that people have commented on my posts - thank you peeps! but I haven't really made time to check out other people's challenges. :( Next time I will!
