Minnesota gets cold and dark during the winter months. "Baby, it's cold outside." You throw on leggings, leg warmers, chunky sweaters, flannel shorts, scarves, hats and then sip on hot coffee and tea-- all the while indulging in other delicious delicacies. (HOT DISH anyone!?)
It's incredibly hard not to pack on the pounds over the winter.
Though we have yet to have snow, the lack of sunlight and wet days are already taking their toll on both my motivation and my appetite.
What's a big bellied Mama to do!?*
*I do want to quickly note that this afternoon, my 4 year old (almost 5!) was squishing my belly together and rubbing her face all over it-- giggly over how it felt like jello. It was not awesome.
Stay motivated! Stay focused! And eat smart! That's really all people can do, right?
