This is my attempt at serious workout talk and a post that is absolutely baby-free. :)
So, today is 4 weeks post-partum. That means there are 2 more weeks to the obligatory 6-week rest. Physically, I am feeling quite good. There are still some parts that hurt. And sometimes, it feels like I am about to rip open a suture or something. But otherwise, I am getting around really well. I am less hormonal too, which is a good thing. I was crying at every single little thing - even when the boyfriend said, "I love you," I would turn on the waterworks! Now, the tears are under control.
Anyway, this post is to help keep me accountable. I gained A LOT of weight during the pregnancy, and I didn't have the "Eating For Two" mentality either. I just blew up! I believe I was close to 200lbs (pre-preggo: 138 lbs plus or minus). I am down to 160lbs now. So, that means I have 20lbs to go to hit 140. Since I am exclusively breast-feeding, I am not dieting. I am just eating regular meals and trying to eat nutritious meals too. Anyway, the point is, I am not going to diet yet and I cannot wait to start running again.
So far, my activities include: walking with the baby strapped onto me, and nursing. It isn't a long walk - mostly up and down the long driveway so we will get some fresh air. I need to go on strolls more with the baby and the best friend.
So, the point of this post?
1. To let the word out that I will lose the weight through exercise
2. I forgot! (My memory has gone out the window).
I will post more later this week with pictures.
And I have been reading some of your posts. I just haven't been commenting because I have been really stretched thinly. Trying to juggle it all. :) But I am around. So, hang in there and bear with me.
