coco at five months, sporting liberty of london and trying really hard to crawl. cute girl.
in june my friend sarah challenged me (and a few others) to lose 7 pounds in 7 weeks. coco had just turned 4 months & it seemed like a perfect time to get in shape. since then i have been running 10-15 miles per week, using a jillian michael’s dvd (ripped in 30!), playing tennis and tracking my meals on the livestrong app. the challenge ended last week and i lost 10 pounds! i feel great and i think i look different too. tracking my food was really helpful. the biggest surprise is that i didn’t feel deprived at all. i feel really fortunate to have such a good friend to encourage me and i absolutely couldn’t have accomplished this without the support of my husband (and his great cooking)!
here are some of the yummy (and healthy) dinners we have made together.
i used to take my boys to omsi (oregon museum of science & industry) all the time, but when frankie was born i became overwhelmed and we took a break. the boys are now old enough to wander through the exhibits alone and the little ladies are really enjoying the play area.
