Wow--where did the month go?

So if anyone still checks my blog, I'm sorry I disappeared. I went back to work and there is always much to do when planning new classes. Then my wonderful sitter told me that she is expecting a baby in January, so I decided to start my kids in daycare. Wonderfully enough, the Y had openings and so my kids and myself have been transitioning to that change in our life. While it was not a easy transition, it is going better :) My relationship with my husband is doing so much better. We finally had that conversation that we should have had months ago but both of us were scared to do so because we didn't know how the other one would react. Anyways, the air was finally cleared and we are getting back to "us".

As for nutrition and exercise, my wonderful routine was broken. When the kids started daycare, I no longer could work out in the morning, nor did I have time after work to drive to my gym, workout and pick up the kids at a decent time. Then I got horribly sick! Double ear infection and strep throat, I am finally getting better but it's been a long illness--just over 2 weeks! So I'm going to join the gym at the Y today and start working out after work on Monday. I'm just going to have to do it. If I had the money, I would buy a treadmill and workout at home in the early morning but that's not going to happen.

Anyways this means my fitness goal of running the 5k in early October is not going to work but that's ok. I enjoy running and I can't wait to get back to it! I hope that everyone is well in your lives. I've got a lot of blogs to catch up on :)

And so you're back.. from outer space... (ahh now I've got I will survive stuck in my head)

Sounds like you've got a lot on your plate! Glad to know that you're feeling better though, those infections are NO FUN at all.

I'm sure you'll adjust to your new routine soon enough.

You've got a wonderful attitude!

Did You know that your Blog is one of Google's top 100 for weight loss and dieting?

You must be really busy. I hope you do find time to update. Sometimes blogging might seem like a chore, but it only takes 10 minutes at least 2 times a month for minimal. Look forward to you updating.

By the way, I work as a virtual assistant of The Healthy Moms ( ), the site is fairly new and I thought I would drop by some mom and health related sites to spread the word.

Great post! I am glad you are getting back on track! I have a weight loss goal myself that I am trying to get to. It's harder than I had thought to lose weight!

Dear Friend,

If your goal is to lose fat as fast as humanly possible, it should be no surprise that you absolutely MUST learn to maximize the amount of time your body is actually burning fat. After all, if your body is actively burning fat for 10 hours each day, you'd get much faster results than if it were only burning fat for five.

But what if you could literally burn fat twenty four hours a day…every day?

Do you realize how much faster you'd progress? How much more quickly the fat would melt away? How much more rapidly you'd have the body you want?

a good fitness program and a good weight loss diet plan it's all you need on my opinion. gl everybodey!

Dorothy of Oz is sure to be an instant classic for the whole family. The film is due out next year but the buzz being created is undeniable. Between the vastly talented cast and the original music, how could you not be excited! Glee's Lea Michele is in the title role as Dorothy Gale and she will bring such a fresh sound to the legendary character. Let us not forget Martin Short, Bernadette Peters, Kelsey Grammer, Dan Aykroyd, and many more bringing life to both new and older familiar characters!! Dorothy of Oz has all the components to be the new family favorite!

Hi Christa,

I have a blog that publishes inspiring stories of moms who have been successful in reducing weight. You can see it at
When I read your blog, I was really impressed by your quest for fitness while being a busy mom! Congratulations for everything you have been able to achieve!

I was wondering if you would be interested in an email interview telling your story – we would discuss topics like your background, how you lost weight post-pregnancy, how you juggled your time, the issues you faced, etc. Your story would be really inspiring and motivating to many women wanting to lose weight post-delivery, and therefore, I urge you to positively consider this interview request.

I would of course be happy to provide a link back to your blog or Facebook page. Please let me know if you would want to go ahead with this email interview, and I would send out the questions to you.

Thanks in advance...
Warm regards,
How Moms Lost Weight Fast Team.
