Finally under prepregnancy weight!

Tuesday, September 04, 2012

After seeing 150 on the scale for what seemed like forever, I have finally broke through! That was what I weighed when I found out I was pregnant and I started keeping track. I was down to 140.something before I started slacking off before becoming pregnant though, so I am still pushing to get down to 135.
The thing that is different for me is that I really need to start toning up my stomach, it is really loose, no muscle at all, and it's all around in my 'muffin top' area and into my upper thighs. The problem is that I just do NOT feel like working out. I have started doing crunches, and I found this blog on pinterest for 300 abs for 30 days, which is basically the AbRipperX from P90X, but those moves are so hard for me, they don't even hurt my stomach, they hurt my legs and back, because I can't do the moves right since I have no muscle to work with in my stomach. It's that bad! :(
Hopefully someday the 'workout bug' will attack again and I will get motivated like I have done with my eating. I am a true believer in that it just 'has to click' for me to give me that kick in the ass to get me going! Once I'm ready, i'm ready!

In other news, FITBECKSRN wrote her blog today and talked about new jeans she discovered from Express that were a perfect fit for 'mom jeans'.. I know I shouldn't be shopping at the teenybopper stores anymore, but my problem is that I can't seem to find 'cool jeans' that are a 'mom fit', meaning my gut doesn't hang over them, and my asscrack doesn't hang out when I bend over.. haha. So my question for you is: Have you found the perfect jean post-kids? That still look in style and not 'old-ladyish'??

    So happy for you! I am "almost" there with the prepregancy weight, but not quite! My stomach is terrible too, and I have no muscle there at all, especially after the c-sections my lower stomach is AWFUL! I have no advice on how to help you there but if you figure it out let me know! As far as the jeans, I've found that the Pioneer Fit for Silver jeans work best with my body type (skinny legs and a muffin top). It seems like they are cut a wee bit higher than most and that holds in my muffin top (granted I have to pull them up here or there), but not as bad as some others out there! :)

    Do you have diastasis? After my first baby, I did Sahrmann Exercises to get my ab muscles to knit back together before trying the ab workouts I had done in the past. If your muscles are still separated, regular workouts can actually make it worse. Just google Sahrmann exercises, and there are a ton of exercises and You-Tube videos to help. Good luck!

    emoticon Erin! Glad to hear your are under pre preg weight. That is fantastic. Wish you would have signed up for 20. Sounds like you need some TNTs to strengthen that core!

    Ya! I discovered you through. Friends feed today and I just want to say, congrats! I'm also post partum and trying to get my pre baby groove back. I'm finally losing weight, but I'm struggling with nutrition and strength training... But have the cardio bug. So, I'm losing but still very very soft, especially around the belly and thighs. I'm doing a little bit most days a week on the ST and know that I will get there, again... And so will you! Congratulations again on busting through! Awesome job momma!

    I love Old Navy jeans. They are cheap and come in a variety of fits and colors. I personally like the Dreamer fit and I like the darker washed. They wear nicely and last a long time.

    Banana Republic or Lmited are my go-to stores for clothes that fit like they should on an adult (no but hanging out in back or tummy hanging out in front) withouth being matronly. I buy almost all of my work clothes at Limited and buy the rest at Banana where I also get my weekend clothes. I don't stray too much from these stores except when I go to the outlets and splurge on clothes at Saks off 5th or Michael Kors (love their jeans also). Good luck finidng your "non-mom" jeans!

Congrats on getting down to your pre-pregnancy weight emoticon
