So you know what, I haven’t felt like blogging the last few days. Obviously. Easter weekend was busy and wonderful. Then last night I was crazy tired and went to bed at about 9. Tonight, I almost did the same thing, but I had to revive myself in order to watch “The Voice.” I’m watching it right now and totally digging it. Did you watch it? If I were on that show (yah right) and all four of the coaches turned around (YAH RIGHT), I don’t know who I’d pick. Probably either Adam Levine or Blake Shelton, since I sing bluesy-country. I’m not a power singer, so I don’t think Christina would be a fit for me. And Cee Lo Green, I don’t know, he wears his sunglasses at night.
On to more important matters… The Royal Wedding. Will you be watching it? Do you care? And why did I capitalize it like it was the name of a movie or something? Personally, I couldn’t give a monkey’s behind about The Royal Wedding, but I am curious about something. Does Prince William have a last name???
…enough with the chit-chat. Something is really bothering me, and I need to get it off my chest. More accurately, I need to get it off my hips, ass, and waist. Are you with me? You know what I’m talking about… Pregnancy weight, baby. My precious little K-Dub turns 8 months old on Sunday, and it’s high time for me to say goodbye to my …
I’m not even kidding, y’all, I have some serious love handles. I like to tell myself it’s because my abdomen was recently stretched to the size of a Cadillac, and it’s just extra skin. But I know that’s not really true. When I was pregnant, I never turned down a bowl of ice cream. And to be honest, I haven’t turned one down since then either. So, that’s at least a year of unrestricted desserts I’ve been packing on — not to mention generous portion sizes.
I’m going to Vegas in early June, so that’s my target date. My goal is to trim down my waistline so I fit into my pre-pregnancy pants. I have five weeks. I’d like to lose 3″ on my waist and hips. I need a plan. Here’s what I’ve come up with so far:
- Eat more often, fill up on healthy snacks like nuts, fruit, raw veggies, etc.
- Cut back on portions, especially when eating out.
- Do cardio at least 3x a week.
- Do ab exercises every day (is that too much? LOVE HANDLES, people!)
Do you have any other suggestions for me?
Is 3″ too much to expect in five weeks?
What can I eat after dinner that will satisfy my NEED for dessert?
