OK. How did I get off track here? And what I mean by that is… how did I gain so much weight? UGH!! AHHH!
It starts with:
“My jeans have shrunk. I think I’ll stick to sweats… every day.”
“My mirrors are off.” “I’m bloated”
And then, my C section scar starts to look like a distant patio under an awning of pale pillows.
And now it’s time to admit, I’ve gained a lot of weight. And I feel kind of gross. And I can’t wear most of my clothes.
The annoying part is, I don’t even feel like I’ve been eating that much!! I haven’t been exercising, that’s for sure (searching for small toys isn’t burning many calories, I guess.)
And now, it’s time. But I don’t believe in diets or juice fasts or any fasts… I believe in clean, healthy eating and exercise and water. I’ve found a fantastic plan that is so healthy and doable, I’m actually excited (I won’t bore you with details unless you are interested… message me if you want to know email@example.com) I’m doing this with a friend. I’ve never really done the buddy system in this way before, but we will be emailing and checking in…. wanna join me?? 🙂
So today, it starts. The health. The drinking more water. The finding a way to get 30 minutes of exercise a day, even if it means jogging in place while S naps. It’s happening! AND NOT JUST SO I WILL LOOK GOOD, but so I’m healthier and feel better. MORE ENERGY to look for Small Toys.
I took some before photos… which I WILL NOT SHARE WITH YOU GUYS!!! (OK, maybe when I get a good after photo in a few months)
So that’s it!
Winter and yoga pants do it to me every year!
I wish you all the best!
We’re in the same boat! I’m horrified at the extra layer of blubber I’ve put on this past winter. Here’s to health!
I felt horrified by my weight gain before I got pregnant but now I look back longingly. ;). My workouts begin in a month! Hopefully nursing helps. 😉
Nursing helped for me…. but at first you have to eat a lot of fatty foods to keep your milk up!! In fact, I was even more starving while nursing than while pregnant! Don’t think about dieting for a few months!!! But yes, eventually nursing was amazing. Burned like 500 calories a day. I nursed for so long – partly because I got thin!
I want to do it with you!
I have to get off my sugar binges at Starbucks.
Do I just email you?
Yes! Woo Hoo!! firstname.lastname@example.org We are gonna look great!
