Half way through the year

Hi guys! 

The last time you heard from me, it was in January and I had set a new years resolution to lose my baby weight. Well six months later here I am. I haven't lost much weight at all, I've stayed pretty much in the same area (around 155), but I haven't been trying either. Truth is, I've spent the past six months studying to get my California mortgage loan originator license. It's been a long and painful process, since I still work from home as a social media specialist and take care of my baby, as well as maintain my houshold errands and stuff.

Working, studying AND having a baby is no joke. It's the hardest thing I've done yet. But I'm happy to report that I'm almost finished and I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. By the end of this month (July) I should be done with all of my pre-licensing education, and ready to have my life back again!! YESS!!

My little sunshine. Isn't he cute?

In the mean time, I've lost hair, gained some grays and acquired a mean chocolate addiction. UGH. I've lost myself --- to having a baby, and now to studying. I'm ready to reclaim my life back again. Although I still have one more test to pass before my studying stresses are over, I feel ready right now to start eating healthy again and incorporating some exercise back into my life. I can't go FULL throttle yet, but I can at least start revving up my engine in terms of getting back into fitness. 

So here's my workout plan for the week: 

Monday - Run 1.5 miles

Tuesday - Core routine

Wednesday - Run 1.5 miles

Thursday - Core routine

Friday - Run 1.5 miles

Saturday - Yoga

This is all I can manage right now. As far as my meals go, I've been trying to clean up my diet as much as possible here and there. Here's a meal plan I followed last week: 

Dinner was random. I plan to incorporate more healthy foods into my diet this week and try to slowly push out the junk. I can't believe I've allowed myself to eat so much junk the past six months. I haven't been my usual self and I'm really tired of eating crap. I'm SO ready for this change right now, and especially ready to get my prebaby body back. 

I feel pretty lousy that things have been this way, but at the same time, I really couldn't have it any other way. To give myself due credit, I have been walking DAILY with my baby son, so I've at least kept that up. When I get focused on a goal, I get tunnel vision, and right now my goal has been to finish my prelicensing education. Everything else has been secondary or non-existant. Not to mention, when I've tried to workout as usual I've ended up completely exhausted and unable to do the things I need to do like take care of my baby, or stay up late studying. BUT, that's okay because I know what I want, and I know where I'm going, so I have absolutely no regrets about the fact that fitness has taken the back burner these past months.

Has there ever been a time in your life when you've truly been too busy to workout or too stressed to eat healthy? Am I just a wuss or what? Okay I admit you should never be too stressed to eat healthy, there's no excuse there. haha, leave a comment. Have a great week guys!

p.s. I'm excited to start blogging more again too :) I'll keep you updated on my progress here!
