Well...I am on a mission...maybe it is the weather, maybe it is the mirrors at the clothing stores, maybe it is the big cool pool in the backyard that I embarrassed to use, maybe it is my poor self image but...
I am ready to get back in shape and lose the baby weight. I have been slowly trying in my half way effort that I do... but I am ready to do it all out..100% effort because I know I can do it - I know I can lose it and I know I can feel good again.
I go through these spurts a lot in my life...gain and lose, gain and lose. But I never thought it would be this hard to lose weight after the baby - I am dumb I know!
But here is my resolution to myself - I am going to lose 25 lbs. That is my overall goal. Here are my other goals:
-Lose 25 lbs by the end of summer - by September hopefully - for sure October - my baby's first birthday
-work out/walk with my son during the day and do my pilates and weight lifting at the beginning of his nap
-go running at night (I hate running!) but I am going to really try to go right after my son goes to sleep
-go on walks with my husband and son when my husband gets home from work
I am going to do this! I have written it and I am going to make all of you hold me to it! I know I can do it because I love to stay active and feel good about myself! I just kept telling myself I would start trying more when I finally got more sleep at night and wasn't so tired...Well I am still tired but I am just going to set my mind to it and DO IT!!!
So here is to my weight loss! Please encourage me in any way you can and I will keep you up to date on my progress! I know there are many people and mothers out there like me so let's encourage each other along the way! WE CAN DO IT!!!
