Today was a very happy day for me! I got on the scale at the gym and was the exact same weight I was at my first midwife appointment. I was 6 weeks pregnant with Silas.
I have five more to go until my actual pre-Silas and pre-Samuel weight (so yeah, those 5 lbs came on quick) and five more after that to my pre-Judah weight. Woohoo! My pre-pregnancy weight is getting closer and closer. If I hadn't have gained 55 lbs I'm sure if would have been here much sooner. Oh well, I enjoyed being pregnant!
There are a few things I want to do to lose the rest of the weight and get more toned.
On Thanksgiving Day I'm going to run a 5K. And, I'm trying to convince my friend, Brooke, to do it with me. Before my "5k training" I'm not sure how far I'd run at one time. It was less than a mile. Ok, a lot less than a mile. Every runner I've ever seen is in great shape, so now I'm determined to be a runner. I'm excited for the 5k and I'm actually enjoying running (I guess it's jogging) for the first time in my life.
I'm going to buy a pedometer and walk 10,000 steps per day. I borrowed one from the library a couple years ago and had to stomp for it to actually count my steps. I'm hoping they've come a long way since then. I don't want it not counting my steps and I definitely don't want to be marching around in public.
I'm going to cut down on the sweets. Notice I did not say cut out, just cut down. A mocha here and a frozen yogurt there is fine, right? Right?
What are you doing to get healthy/stay healthy during the holidays?
