mamavation monday- june 20 2011

not sure what to write about this week for my mamavation post but it was a busy week of housekeeping,and I got back into working out. felt I was more consistent this week which made me feel better about myself atleast physically. I still feel dreadfully fat and when I actually weighed myself this week it was depressing because I have gained so much back with my lack of effort since beginning homeschooling, and my slacking on charting what I eat, and not being careful with what I eat. but I lost it before so I can lose it again. I have began charting my calories again so hopefully this will help along with the working out more steadily.
