1 Month Anniversary!

Ok, so I am lame and I don't even care.  I am sitting here celebrating that I have been on Weight Watchers for 1 month.  I didn't even realize it until I signed into my WW account and it informed me!  

WOW!  This month has flown by.  Not only can I not believe how fast this month has gone, I can't even wrap my mind around the fact that I lost 11.1 pounds.  

I am totally aware this isn't what every month is going to look like, but it is such a great start to my weight loss journey.  I have so far to go.  SO FAR.  Knocking 11.1 pounds off the total makes me smile and feel proud!  It also keeps me pretty motivated.

The boys and I took to the pavement today!  It was such a gorgeous day out.  They were in a great mood too, so I wanted to take full advantage of it and get us out of the house!  We set out on my usual route.

Let me just say, pushing 40 some pounds of babies on a 3 mile walk sure changes things!  WOW!  I wasn't even a quarter mile into the walk before I felt it in my legs, butt, and even arms.  I got a little worried I wouldn't make it through the entire 3 miles.  I hit a good stride though and was able to get in a really nice workout while spending time with my boys. 

We even stopped to have a mini quick visit with Amber and Lo.  In hind sight, I probably shouldn't of done that.  I had a hard time getting my momentum going again.  The rest of the walk was much slower pace than my precious pace and I felt tired.  Next time, I think it will be more of a drive by and wave!  HAHA   

Here are a few pictures of the boys at the Memorial on base.  I have never been up there before.  It was so peaceful and very touching.  We just walked around the circle/fountain and headed back down the hill.  I look forward to walking there again.  Maybe even taking a picnic up there with the boys when the weather gets warmer.
