Ok- so I have about 20lbs to go till Im back to my prebaby weight. and I definitely dont want that to take longer than it has to because Im too scared to make fitness a priority.
My husband would laugh if her heard me say that I need to make fitness more of a priority- because I LOVE fitness and am working hard to get to it... BUT the reality is that there a significant ways that I still dilly dally and dottle when I could be kicking some caloric butt.
My biggest challenge right now is pulling myself away from my dear baby- I feel SO guilty even just being in a different room than him... and more than just guilt, I really dont want to miss a minute of his precious life. And i feel sometimes that even ten minutes could mean i miss a moment i can never have back.
however, what good am i to him if im not also taking care of myself (read: eating, showering and exercising)? i mean, i dont need to be the one cuddling him through ever nap- i know daddy is more than pleased to hold him without me hovering around 'just in case' (first time mom here....)
This week i give myself permission to step away from him to do exercise- ten minutes at least each day.
And Ill thank him for the time :)
