Shape Up!

I am going on a diet. No, wait. You're not supposed to call it a diet. I'm going on a lifestyle change. Errrrr... right. So, I just had a baby 3 months ago and I feel like that gives me the right to be a little chunky! But, do I really want to be chunky? Uh, no. I want to look like a Victoria's Secret model! Is that ever going to happen? Probably not.

I am a very curvy girl. The smallest my body will go to is a size 8 and that is skin and bones. A size 10 is the perfect size for me. So, I have 4 1/2 sizes to lose. How am I going to get there? I know, I know! I'll sit on my butt all day and eat fast food! Oh, wait... That's what got me here. I'm not a very active person. I used to be, but now when I'm active I get out of breath really fast. And I hate that feeling. So, my reasoning is if I don't push myself too hard, I won't lose my breath, so I will feel good. Um, but look good? Not so much.

I'm trying to find a lifestyle change.. plan.. thing.. for a lazy girl. A picky eater. A very busy new mom. Does anyone know that plan?! Anyone?? Mmmkay.. Sounds like I'm going to have to create this lifestyle change-plan-thing-whatever on my own. This should be fun...

This is me now. Hopefully, I'll be able to post a slimmer, more fabulous picture in the future.

My first 'mommy' project

Since having my daughter I have discovered my crafty side. It stems from my need for my daughter to look ridiculously adorable at all times. I've been buying things like hairbows and flower clips in my quest for cuteness. But then I discovered tutu's and how very expensive they are. I had to have one but I couldn't justify spending so much on them. So, I did some research and realized that not only are tutu's really easy to make, but you can make one for under $5.00 worth of materials! Below is a picture of my daughter in the first tutu I made.

It's a little too long, but I can afford to keep trying until I perfect my technique. I mean, I can make six tutu's at home for the price of one from a boutique. I may post a tutorial when I make my next tutu so others can learn to make them too.

Let me introduce myself...

Hi! I'm Brittany. I created this blog a year ago and forgot about it. Now that I have my daughter I decided to use this as a fun way to share little glimpses of my new life with family and friends. Since most of my time is spent with my daughter I can't promise that I'll be updating this very often. And since all of my typing is done one-handed, as is everything when you have a newborn in one arm, I can't promise that my updates will be very long. Or error free. It's hard to type with one hand!
