Today I went to the gym for the third time this month and the third time in the last 9 month- ish.
Three months ago I had my third daughter. I currently weigh about the same about as the day BEFORE I had her- what a disappointment! Between my hunger from nursing, and the fact that I went through 5 rounds of antibiotics for mastitis, which on their own caused weight gain and the mastitis required rest for recovery, I have watched my weight go up instead of down. I am really hoping that I am now done with mastitis permanently and I can keep up with working out.
I took my gym membership off hold and went on the first day, June first and just did a little cardio. Yesterday I did a class called "Pure Muscle" a little cardio and a lot of lifting. Today was Pilates and swimming. I am SOOOO SORE! I look forward to my body getting used to this again. Now that my oldest is 13, she can do the classes with me, which is fun, though in classic teenage fashion she does laugh at me when I am struggling. I can't believe how very little core strength I have.
Well, I am not going to start restricting food in any way yet as I have had trouble in the past with milk supply when I do that, but I will be tracking my workouts and seeing how that goes and try to find some more healthy options for the family to eat. I am also tracking my inches as well as weight on spark people. It was sad to see how heavy I am compared to 16 months ago and how much bigger. I look forward to inches melting off...hopefully sooner than later...though it usually doesn't come off me till my babies turn 6 months, we will see...
