I Have Nothing Clever To Say

12 Aug

I am basically spent at this point.  Two 1st birthday parties for little Tink Tink 1 week apart has drained my energy and my brain.  Both parties were wonderful and a ton of fun, but I am so glad that is behind me for another year!  I totally see why parents go to Chuck E. Cheese and places like that for parties.  It is a lot of work, and when they are so little, they could honestly care less!  However, the time and effort was all beyond worth it to celebrate the first year of my baby’s life!  The best part of party #2 was that it was a joint party with my best friend and her son who was born 8 days prior to Tink Tink.  It was double the fun!

With all that being said, I was down 2.5 pounds this week.  This puts me at 40.5 pounds lost in 10 weeks.  I was thrilled to hit this milestone, especially with the craziness the last 2 weeks.

Over 40 Par-tay!!!

I am going to be in Chicago this week for a work convention.  My goal is to maintain my diet and get some exercise in the hotel fitness center.  I will try to blog and let you all know how things are going while I am out of town.  This will be the first time I will be away from my daughter overnight…and it will be for 3 nights.  Needless to say, I will welcome the distraction of working out to get my mind off missing my baby!

Please let me know how you all handle nutrition and exercise during extra busy schedules and travelling.  I welcome any advice and tips you all have!

Stay strong and keep moving,

    That’s amazing progress you’ve made, wow! The party sounds fun, even though it was exhausting. I hope your trip to Chicago goes smoothly.
