Mamavation Monday: Wow, Really? 20 Pounds You Say???

Mamavation Monday

So, we are pretty much moved into our new home! We've been here a week and the living room, play room, and kitchen are pretty much all unpacked and lived in. The bedrooms seem to have several boxes just piled up around them...I'm still questioning whether we need that stuff since after a week I still haven't pulled anything out of them. :)

But anyway, I hoped on a scale the other day and noticed I've gained a lovely 20 pounds. Yeah. Really. How in the world can I gain 20 pounds in 3 months? I'd love to blame my thyroid but it's not. Cortisol? Maybe.

So, this is where I sit, in my lovely home, able to breath now, but carrying even more extra weight. I need help. I did a great walk yesterday, 5.45 miles, and I plan to get back into running Monday, but it's the food that really get's me. I'm an emotional eater. I love the way food tastes and how I feel while I'm eating it. :) I love how it crunches. I do not love the way starvation feels. 

I'm trying new smoothies and they are delicious. I just need to get back on track and relax. :) Any suggestions, advice, or simple encouragement is welcome! And, I hope You are enjoying your fitness journey. Share with me!!!
