Status: Isn't it kinda obvious?

Awesome Personal Trainer kicked our butts last night. I am so sore in places I didn't know I COULD be sore. She's stepped it up since Hawaii is three and a half weeks away.

And I am cutting out sugar and cutting WAY DOWN on carbs until then. That should help. At this point, I am what I am, but after all these intense workouts I'm definitely not as jiggly in my swimsuit. I loathe the jiggle. The jiggle must END. But it will be a few months before I am down to where I want to be. But hey, I'm working on it! :-)

I am tired, too. All this working out makes me sleepy. Well, so does staying up until nearly midnight catching up on shows....*ahem*...

Time to go play with the baby! I didn't try any additional foods yesterday. Today I'm trying peas. Cross your fingers for me...

This weekend should be fun. We're supposed to get 3-6 inches of snow tomorrow, so I'm ready. All the kids have snowboots, snowpants, new gloves and hats and scarves, and down coats. We're making a gingerbread house (you know those ready-made kits) and I'm making a yummy Sunday dinner. Winter is here! I love this time of year!

If the workouts are making you sleepy (as opposed to the feeling-good tired from a strong workout), you need to switch something around nutritionally.

Don't cut too many carbs if you're working out regularly, cut down but not out, because your body needs them for fuel. Also, lean proteins will help keep your energy up.

Cutting sugar's always a good thing.

And DON'T use substitutes, like sweetners or whatever -- that'll kick your ass in the fatigue arena faster than anything. You'll be twice as tired as if you had less real sugar. Your body has to work much harder to process it.

Wow - I am impressed - four kids and all that working out, and being close to where you want to be.
But I agree with Devon - be sure to keep enough "good carbs" to keep your energy up. I think as the latest thing keeps growing, you'll need it!
