Here is my weight loss tip for the week: Breastfeed. Seriously, I have been eating like a pig and not exercising this past week and I am still down one pound. This weeks weight is 162 lbs. Apparently breastfeeding burns up to 500 calories a day. So that is just one benefit to add to the many of breastfeeding. I enjoy breastfeeding my son. It is my time to sit and cuddle with him and I often sneak in a few minutes of reading as well. Also I can feed him anywhere, at any time with no worry about bottles, measuring formula, or any of that.
In any case I still want to work on eating healthier. Again this week I did not do so well with the food diary and increasing my intake of fruits and vegetables. So again this is something I want to work on. Along with drinking my water which I quickly slack off on if I don't keep track of it.
My other goal last week was to clean my closet area. That did not get done. So my goal is to do that tomorrow. I am having company this weekend and I want them to be able to get into the closet and have a clean table to set stuff on. Here is a "before" picture and I hope to be posting some beautiful "after" pictures tomorrow.
