Getting Back to Where I Was!!

I am a wife and a mother of two wonderful children. I have a 3 year old son and a 9 month old daughter. Before I got pregnant in August, 2008, I was in the best shape of my life. I was working out with a trainer twice a week. I ran at least 3 times a week, some week more. Every Saturday, I would run for 2 hours straight. I was doing workouts that I never thought possible for me. I hated running as a child and I completed my first half marathon in July, 2008 in the Vegas summer heat!!! ...
I am a wife and a mother of two wonderful children. I have a 3 year old son and a 9 month old daughter. Before I got pregnant in August, 2008, I was in the best shape of my life. I was working out with a trainer twice a week. I ran at least 3 times a week, some week more. Every Saturday, I would run for 2 hours straight. I was doing workouts that I never thought possible for me. I hated running as a child and I completed my first half marathon in July, 2008 in the Vegas summer heat!!!

Then I got pregnant, but continued to workout. I had to switch from running to walking in order to keep my heart rate where the doctor recommended it. I watched what I ate and made it through the pregnancy gaining less weight than I did with my first child. But once I had my daughter, I stopped everything. I stopped watching what I eat and stopped working out completely. I wanted to spend every minute with her because I know how fast the baby stage goes. I enjoyed every second of it. I had 4 full months at home with her and I don't regret a minute.

But now is the time to get back on track!!! I am reconnecting with my running group and meeting with them every Saturday again. I have committed to at least 3 days of workouts to start and I am logging my food. It amazes me how many wasted calories I have been consuming. I have made a committment to learn to cook more healthy meals and I am so excited to use SPARKS as a resource.

I am ready to be back on track!!! I know I can do it because I was once there!!!

Hi! Thanks for the comment on my blog and adding me as a friend. I am super nervous about my half, but I get nervous about any race that I am in. You have your hands full right now, and I give you a lot of credit for getting back into running. My kids are a little older. This year they will be 7,9,11 so I have some time on my hands while they are at school. I am heading out in a few minutes for a 14 mile run outside. I am curious to see how I hold up. Then I start to taper.

Hi, there! I'm part of the Bluebells Team, too. I just read your story and it's similar to mine. Before getting pregnant with baby #2, I was in such great shape. Only I lapsed during my pregnancy instead of afterward. I still haven't been able to find that "spark" I need to get back on track, although I have been slowly working on eating better and being more active. I will get it, though. Good luck on your journey!
