I ran today - got a junkiy old treadmill that occasionally just stops but then starts up again. I can make it work for now. Emily came downstairs while I was "running" and asked me if I was ok, she looked very concerned.
Yeah! I did the run thing about 4 times. I had a little 2 mile loop and I would run/walk for about 30 minutes. Now - if I can run the whole thing I would feel better. I want to be able to run at least the first half by the 1st snow and by next summer the whole thing. With school I have gone back to the stairmaster, blah, it is better than nothing. I can't believe how crappy I feel after this summer. I have my big ol' gut back and my skin is a mess. Back to healthy eating and exercise. Wish I had a treadmill, don't know if I can keep up the running gig in the dead of winter. Hoping to get out at least 3 times a week and stairmaster the other days. If I could look half as good as you do now I would be thrilled!
No running yet - hardly working out. Having all 3 kids home and Sarah's Birthday festivities plus Sheldon is actually working now doesn't leave time for much. We go out of town this weekend then the kids go home with my folks. When I have some time to myself I will give it a whirl and see what comes of it. I'm kind or excited.
I know a great Plastic Surgeon in Denver. I have a feeling that a lot of that is excess skin from passing two humans through your body. Mine is much worse if that makes you feel any better. Not only to I have the giant bowl full of jelly thing, but I am also scared with deep ugly purple stretch marks - every where - some even ABOVE my belly button. It's just wrong. The other morning I was laying in bed and I pulled the skin, I could pull straight up almost 3 inches of skin, stretchy scared skin, sick! Sheldon actually felt sorry for me, he agrees that's not going anywhere. Being a woman is so much HARDER than a man. Our bodies love to be plump and full of baby - the aftermath is almost impossible to recover from. Stick with your cardio and your belly will start to go, what is left is the price we pay to have our little ones, love your after baby body- be healthy and stay active.
