Weight Loss Wednesdays

After weeks of putting it off, I have finally decided to start working on getting the rest of this baby weight off, and continue to work on reaching my goal weight.

I gained 30 lbs with my pregnancy. I lost 20 lbs in the first 2 weeks. Here we are 4 weeks later, and I still have 6 lbs left to my pre-pregnancy weight, and it's just not going anywhere!

To reach my weight loss goals, I joined Weight Watchers Online, and I also joined a new gym.

I decided that I HAVE to blog about my weight loss journey, mainly because I need to hold myself accountable.

My goals:
Total weight loss: 29 lbs
Weight loss to pre-pregnancy weight: 6 lbs

Here's hoping for a successful journey!!

Big Day

This is a big day, people...HUGE!!

I am officially a 4th year medical student! While I still have one more tough month in August, 4th year is significantly easier than any other year. And besides that, I'm one year away from being Dr. Alicia!

I have a love-hate relationship with medical school, but I am SUPER excited about being so close to done!


Alicia, M3...M4

Study Day

My baby is being so good, just watching mamma study!

It's definitely a whole different experience studying with a baby, but I think we will do just fine! :)

Lazy Saturday

Last night was our first official outing as a family (other than doctors appts and 1 quick trip to Target/Whole Foods).

We went to an Arts Festival on Broad Street. We walked up and down Broad looking at the different art galleries. Declan loves loves being outside, so he was perfectly content riding around in his stroller.
After, we went over to our friends Susan and Daves. Declan slept for a majority of time we were there, so Patrick and I enjoyed some time with friends. This was a much needed night for momma and daddy!!
Unfortunately, we didn't take any pictures. :(

So today, we are having a lazy Saturday. Declan is playing with his daddy and sleeping, while I study all day for a test I have to make up this week.

I just love these days with my boys!!

Show Us Your Life - Reading List

Today I'm linking up with Kelly's Show Us Your Life. It's all about reading, and I happen to be a big reader. :)

Since I had Declan, I have finished 4 books, and I'm reading my 5th. Turns out that the iPad is just perfect for reading during my middle of the night feedings in bed!

The books I've read have been light, easy reads - easy to pick up and put down in short periods of time:

Right now, I'm reading:

Next, I think I will read:

There's an App for That

It's official - I'm an awful blogger. This makes me an awful mom, because I should be documenting every week! But I DID just have a baby (ahem, a month ago) and I had surgery last week, so maybe he will forgive me some day?!? Or I can forgive myself?

Either way, I now have an App on my phone that I can blog from. This is huge!

So, here's hoping for more posts in the future!!

And here's a picture of my 1 MONTH OLD!! from yesterday:

He is growing so fast!!
