5:30am- alarm goes off.
I had made up my mind I was going to ease up today and spend more time yelling and watching everyone than doing every thing they were doing. My trusty co leader was there leading the pack, so I was slightly off the hook. But then some how I ended up running with 25 lbs worth of weights in my arms. I told everyone if I could run with these weights, then they had better be running (no walking). That was HARD! But I did it. :)
Scale is looking good. My mountain week damage is now officially behind me. 162 on the scale. I'm so determined to see the 150's again. Then I'll feel like I see the light at the end of the tunnel. Shepherd is 6 months. To be roughly 20 lbs from pre pregnancy weight at 6 months post partum is good. (Considering I gain more than 50 lbs with each pregnancy) I always say it takes a full year to get it off. Those hollywood celebrities that get back to pre pregnancy size in 6 weeks makes me want to slap someone. It's just not at all normal.
I'm feeling good. Starting to feel normal again as far as my body goes. My abs are going back in little by little- but they will always be the thorn in my side. Rearing it's ugly head if I eat too much. It's the first thing that shows. I hate that. But it is what it is. I read another blog called Cranky Fitness that addressed belly fat. I'm doing most of this stuff, but thought I'd pass this along.
