It's finally happened...
......the inevitable moment in time when you can no longer eat whatever you want, whenever you want and not gain weight. OH MAN - I can't believe it's finally happened! I have heard so many women talk about this moment in time but I really thought that: a) it would never happen to me...or b) it wouldn't happen for many many more years down the road!! After both of my kids were born, the weight just melted off - I didn't have to exercise or watch what I ate...it literally just came off! In fact, after Rauly was born, I was probably the thinnest I've ever been. BUT - I've noticed over the past few months that my jeans are getting tighter, my face is getting fuller and (gulp), my belts are needing to be loosened. I was groaning to my mom (as I ate a piece of pizza) that I couldn't believe I was gaining weight and she asked: "Well, are you exercising?"...to which I respondeed incredulously "No!". She continued to ask "Well, are you watching what you eat?"....have you guessed my response?...."NO!". She then reminded me that exercise never hurt anybody and told me it may be time to get out my jogging shoes.
Which leads me to my next gripe session! How in the world does any mom with multiple children find the time to exercise?!?! If we could afford a stinkin' YMCA membership I would truly be one of those moms who could become addicted and would most likely work out WAAAAY too much - but (and a big sigh follows this -but-), we can't afford it which means I have to put my kids in the double jogging stroller anytime I want to take a walk or a jog. Can I just say how unbelieveably frustrating it is to attempt to jog with two toddlers?!....all my kids want to do is smack eachother around the entire time and I wind up having to stop every 30 seconds to break up their fights! ALSO - how in the world does any mother of multiple children find the time to eat healthy?!....and here's my next vent...I don't eat that much (ok...I don't eat that much all the time). But seriousely, my biggest meal of the day is in the evening but other then that, I just don't feel that I'm eating that much throughout the day - at least not enough to cause me to be gaining weight.
Here's a big fat Grrrrrr - and that is directed at my metabolism that has apparently forgotten that I'm only 26 years old. Tune in next month to find out how I plan on kicking my metabolism in the "you know where"...hmmm...that sounded bad and for all you potty mouths out there...I was meaning the word -butt- which in our house is a naughty word! NEways - back to my venting - tune in next month to find out how I intend to lose this dadgum weight! (Why next month?....because it's Christmas and I do not intend to tackle this issue over the next few weeks!)
