I was on here reading blogs and thought I would post one myself. I have no clue what i’ll type about πŸ™‚

I went to Target this morning and bought some cottage cheese, strawberries, and grapefruits YUM! I don’t know what to do with my time right now. Tony actually told me I don’t have to do as much cardio as i’ve been doing. So now i’m trying to stay off the treadmill. My workouts have been GREAT this past week. Except for Wednesday and that was my fault. I ate a TON of nuts and then my stomach hurt. My weight is around 116 right now which is up 9 lbs from comp day. I’m feeling good though. That first week and the initial shock of your body not looking all dehydrated is the toughest. Once you realize you are human and that look is NOT healthy you tend to not be as mental. So i’m enjoying my body right now although I need to get back to 90% clean ASAP. I would say i’ve been around 75% right now. My downfalls are nuts and creamers EEK!

I was reading an article from a friend of mine that she was showcased on. She said that she typically takes an “off season”, although she doesn’t like to call it that either because she’s healthy all year round, through Oct~Dec. She likes to bake with her son and enjoy the holidays. He will remember baking with mommy and having a good time and not that mommy didn’t have a 6 pack πŸ™‚ I loved that!

    April I sure you still look ADORABLE! And 116 girl…you remember the days when 116 seemed like impossible???

    I love what you wrote about the mom and “off season”…absolutely…her son will most definitely treasure that time with her!!!

    Did you read that on Noony’s posts? She said the same thing about baking and stuff with her boy… I think it makes a lot of sense because you’re going to remember those times with the loved ones forever. Its important to teach kids to take time and enjoy every little part of the year!!!

    Nuts alwayyyyyys hurt my stomach. I’ve not been mowing down on them as much as I was! Todd is sweet and buys me almonds all the time from Mendards-its cute. I kinda like it haha. But I have been eating only a few here and there. The MRP’s really help when I’m bored and want ‘something’ but I’v ebeen doing good with the diet and so far-I’ve lost lbs already. My lower half looks better.

    Sounds like you have a great mental attitude April. I know this time I am going to have a whole new mindset myself. πŸ™‚

    Have you tried ready to drink shakes as your creamer?? I think the chocolate is so yummy.

    Hugs to you sweets.
