Operation Lose the Twin Weight, or more easily written as OLTW, is still in full effect. Well, that still should really be a back. I gained a few pounds while back in Michigan, but come on, we ate ham and cheesy potatoes for like a week straight. But those few pounds are gone again, simply by returning home and eating like normal again. Brian and I are both using a Calorie Counter app on our phones to track our food for the day, which helps tremendously. We can scan the barcode on the packaging of what we're eating or do a quick search for it, and even save it as a favorite meal. This comes in handy as I usually eat a bowl of oatmeal (with raisins or half of a banana mixed in!) for breakfast and a sandwich or wrap for lunch. It's nice to be doing it together too. Makes you think twice before dipping into Brennan's "nums" (M&Ms) because you know you'll have to record it.

I'm also getting back on the treadmill. I came down with a cold about a week and a half before Christmas, so Brian's present was put on hold. And I didn't even take workout gear to MI because I'm a realist and I decided not to waste the precious suitcase space. The most exercise I got during those 10 days was playing Just Dance on the Wii. (Which is insanely fun, especially because it's one of the few games that I can kick my husband's arse in). Then I came home and just haven't gotten back into the routine of doing it. Complete and total laziness. But I'm working on it. I think I have just a few more to go to hit 100 miles. Then it's on to his birthday gift ... 250 miles by April 4. Yikes. If I don't get moving I'm gonna be running 15 miles per day in late March. To help with this 250 miles goal, I told Brian to pick a 5K for me to run in a few months. And long term, I'd like to shoot for running the Disney Wine and Dine half marathon next October. I said "shoot for" people, don't get too excited.

Looking at pictures is also good motivation. Take for example this lovely photo of myself and Kiernan, falling asleep after nursing:

Awwww, look at the cute sleeping baby ... HOLY CHINS!! That my friends, is not twin belly ... that is just plain fat. And unhealthy. And it's going bye-bye!!

I write for me. 100%. BUT it definitely makes my day when someone tells me that they enjoy reading my blog. Or that they hate it. Whatev.

So don't spare me your words of wisdom, encouragement, or mindless babble. I enjoy it all :)
