My pal Brittany has inspired me to blog about my journey to get my pre-baby body back. OK, let's be honest--I'd actually like to get the body back to a little before that. 21-year-old body? Still hiding out in there?
Let's just say I've always been a little sensitive regarding issues like this, so it's tough for me to post exact numbers (not to mention pictures). But, again, Brittany has challenged...and I have accepted.
But I'm compromising a bit. Here's what I will do:
Post pictures (as soon as I can find time to take them). And I'll tell you two things:
Baby weight when Catherine was born: 212 pounds
How much I'd like to lose now: 70 pounds
But I'm just not brave enough to tell you my actual current weight or the goal weight (maybe one day). I also don't own a scale, so I'll be working on inches as well as pounds.
Note to self: Find the tape measure that has not been seen since we moved.
So here is The Plan for now.
-Exercise every morning before work.
-Limit sweets to one treat per week.
This might not sound like much, but it's a start. I don't do well with major overhauls all at once; it helps me to be more consistent if I gradually make changes. And I have indulged my pretty large sweet tooth ever since I got pregnant. That habit must be kicked.
I head back to the doctor in a little more than a month, so I hope to have some good results to report by then!
