Need some help!! ((Feeling AWFUL))
I have gained about 8lbs since August, which is majorly discouraging and I know I need to take some responsibility for not always eating 'perfectly' to lose weight. I can be honest about that. However I try to cut back and end up starving with crappy hypoglycemic issues and I feel like I haven't been able to get a grip on it, lol.
The thing is, I am completely exhausted. All.the.time. I dread days i dont get a nap. As soon as I finally get the baby and toddler down for a nap I am out for a nap, too. I feel like I am dragging myself through the day, energy wise. I am breastfeeding my 6 month old and my 2 yr old likes to nurse a couple times a day (thats a post for another day, lol). I try to get out for walks at the very least and I just end up hurting all over, my knee, my hip, my lower back, lol, I feel like I am falling apart, its terrible! My hips ache terribly if I go for an extended walk with the baby in the carrier.
I know from experience that I don't have an easy time losing weight while breastfeeding but I think I have been letting myself use that as an excuse to stop trying. Ugh. Can I get some ideas and suggestions? Easy meal ideas that are quick to throw together that won't break a budget or require lots of special ingredients? Especially food that wont cause big sugar spikes, Maybe some workout ideas that are fairly easy to squeeze in with the kids? I obviously need to do some strengthening with the knee/hip/back issue, ugh. I just feel lousy and need a pep talk badly! :/
