So lately I have been working real hard on "planning" my whole system that I'll be doing. It's been challenging because while I'm at it I'm still trying to find the time to work out. With two kids & an always tired husband - sometimes I don't have MY own time until the kids are in bed. But when that is, my husband is playing with his xbox & I can't necessarily wait until he's done by then it's like 1am. I'm too tired by then.

Randomly, I googled "How many calories you burn when breastfeeding" and boy you burn a lot in a day. Especially if you're exclusively breastfeeding. So, I read this and that's it. I'm gonna breastfeed for as long as it takes.

So, I have to come up with something. I don't wanna necessarily STARVE myself when it comes to calories because it says a breast feeding mom should eat anywhere between 1800 to 2000 calories a day. A person trying to lose weight, aka Biggest Loser, they eat only 1200 calories a day so imagine that. I must admit. I was at that point of starving myself only eating 1 meal a day and scarfing down snacks thruout the day. But, errr. it felt wrong. So I don't know.

Goals: Schedule a time of day to exercise even if it's for 30 minutes, Plan my meals more wisely (eat sizable meals & snacks), and breastfeed (=
