Ok, so this is my first blog entry. I amazed that there's time for it this afternoon, I think the 2 main reasons are 1. my son is taking a nap that's lasted longer than 20 minutes and 2. no class this semseter! I should be napping myself, I have an overnight shift ahead of me, but never could really sleep during the day.....
I used to think getting rid of the extra poundage was no big deal, but then the big 3-0 and mommyhood came along and I'm singing a different tune! The thing that scares me the most is this "c-section pooch."
I'm currently on week 3 of a 12 week challenge and I'm down about 3 pounds. I'm happy to be down 3 pounds, but frustrated that I'm not doing better with my diet and exercise. Thankfully my honey has started his own 12 week challenge, so that does help that we're both really trying to clean up the eating habits.
The exercising bit (or lack of it) is me not wanting to go downstairs and workout after going, going, going all day. I've thought about getting up at 4 or 5, but not realistic if I want to have a healthy night's sleep. I have my little routine where I put my little guy to bed, and then just lay down myself and relax. I need a CATTLE PROD! or something to get my rear up and go downstairs and just push myself.
Way back when, when I managed to diet and exercise myself right down to 114 (which was gross for me, btw), I was an early morning exerciser. It didn't matter if I went to bed at midnight, I'd be up at 4:30 and in the gym. Now that I have the equipment I need in my basement, where's that motivation????? I think it boils down to results. Results motivate me better than anything else and I need to quit sabotaging myself so that I can see them!!!
Enough rambling for now, I'm setting my goals and we'll see if I can reach them by the end of the month!
