I can't believe that I have three children!  Although we are tired, I mean really, really tired - we're having the greatest time.  Poppy is now 5 weeks old, Zoë is turning two (tomorrow) and Beckett just turned three. Where does the time go?

Poppy is a great baby, she's very sweet and peaceful.  How she sleeps with the noise of two toddlers in the house is beyond me!  Having a newborn in my arms again is pure joy, I love babies.  Experience has taught me to enjoy every moment that she is in my arms, even if it's 3am because it doesn't last long.  Before you know it they are running around and it's impossible to get more than a two second cuddle.  These newborn moments pass by in a flash and they are so special, I'm trying my best to savour every second of it.

Although I'm trying to enjoy every second of it (and I am) I am also SO FREAKIN' TIRED.  I forgot how exhausting a newborn is...or is it the toddlers that are exhausting?  I'm doing crazy things, I look in the fridge for a broom, I leave things on the roof of my car and drive off, I find toast in the toaster that I made the day before..."mommy brain" is hard core after three kids.

I hope you like the photos of the kids, my good friend Katyann took them,  trying to get a photo of all three together was a very big challenge! xx

my plan

Wednesday, September 8, 2010

You are looking at my lunch, looks good don't you think?  I have a plan and so far it seems to be working. You see, I like food - especially soft cheeses, bread, popcorn and pasta.  Sigh.  Those foods are not going to get me back into my pencil skirt.  Don't get me wrong, I don't feel some weird pressure to be a certain size - it's purely economics.  I have a closet full of work clothes, it makes way more sense for me to fit into them rather than buy all new clothes.

After having Beckett and Zoë I enjoyed all the soft cheese I wanted, until I realized that I had to go back to work and nothing except my leggings fit me.  So I would panic, starve and go to the gym.  Not a wise plan as it made me miserable, tired and it didn't work.  Now that I'm experienced in  the pregnancy department I decided to take a different approach this time around.  I thought I would watch what I eat right out of the gate. What a concept.  Problem is that with a new baby and two toddlers I'm incapable of feeding myself, so I called Deanna at Licious Living and asked for her help.  

For the past two weeks Licious has been delivering me The Zone, seven days a week - three meals and two snacks.  It's good, it's working and I'm HAPPY.  The best part is that I don't have to think, I open the front door each night and there's my cooler with my meals. I won't bore you with numbers but I am losing weight and I'm not miserable, I mean how could I be when I get to dig into a salad like this one!  I had to have a c-section so the gym isn't an option for three more weeks.  It's weird, I'm actually looking forward to the gym - I can't believe I just wrote that but it's true.  I'm feeling good and I'm very happy.  

I'll be posting some new photos of my babes very soon...Katyann came by and took some great photos that I can't wait to share.  xx
