    • Saturday – None (rest day) – 11,500 Steps
  • Notes and findings: 
    • This is a big week – I weighed 146 pounds Wednesday morning prior to exercise. I’m not sure what’s causing this since I’m eating like a champ.  I bet it’s the combo of strength and running
    • Matthew worked out with me on Wednesday, and that was fun!  Bryson was taking a long nap and they didn’t synch their naps, so I figured just do it while Matthew was up.  He watched and told me how hard I was working and would jump in and “work hard with Mommy!”
    • I focused more on hard exercise and did no walking, hence the fewer hours of activity this week.  It worked out fine though – 1.8 pounds down
    • I am now a very official size 8 in all brands and my natural waist is 28 inches.  My belly button measurement went down a half inch, as did my hips since mid-way testing
    • I’m feeling thin – I see it now in myself, which is nice.  There is nothing about my body in clothes that bothers me now.
    • I bought new bras – yay!  34C – so I’ve lost but not in cup size.  YAY!
    • May favorite swim suit from my “thin days” is too big – I cannot wear it in the water or the bottoms will fall off.  I’m sad about this because I love it – it’s the suit I bought for our honeymoon.  First world problems, but still…. I’m sad about it
    • I bought my first pair of skinny jeans today.  I haven’t taken the tags off yet… I’m not sure about them.  Ask me in 2 pounds!
    • Next week should be good.  I had a total of 3.5 cupcakes this week and I lost 1.8 pounds.  I’m expecting another pound next week.
Goodbye, lovely swimsuit... the only swimsuit I've ever truly loved.  :(

Hi, there, I’m Courtney. I never planned to stay home with my kids, but I got sucked into motherhood when my first baby came into our lives after years of infertility and multiple rounds of IVF. His brother followed closely behind, something we didn’t plan on after having such a rough road with achieving parenthood the first time around. My boys are IVF cycle twins, conceived on the same day but born two years and one day apart (they were both transferred on the same day in October, but with two years between them). My boys are the best of friends and my husband is a terrific husband, father, and most importantly… friend. He fully supported my desire to stay home (“I just wanted it to be your idea and not mine, I totally want you to stay home and raise our kids!”) and encourages me in everything I do. I am a lover of projects, spreadsheets, fitness, healthy cooking and eating, crafts, selling my stuff on FB (HA!), and the outdoors. If I’m active, I’m pretty darn happy!
