Back on track...

Tuesday, April 23, 2013

The scale was finally nice to me this last Sunday. I have lost a total of 10 pounds!!! Not bad, but that three week lull (and gain) was a killer.

I'm up to 15 reps in Pilates... I know that isn't generally how they are done, but I'm pretty intense about them and I am trying to build my ab muscles back up after having baby last fall.

Jogging is a bust. I am too heavy and too tired and too out-of-shape to jog the only path available to me in this area (or until my husband and I have two cars). So instead of hurting myself more than I have and dealing with a recovery from that, I am going to get my butt out of bed and go to our little gym in our apartment complex. They have two elliptical, a treadmill, and a cycling machine. I'm going to bike and do the elliptical.

Does anybody know the difference between the spin machines that are set up like actual bikes versus the ones where your legs are out in front of you?

My problem so far is that I have missed two mornings already this week because my husband has a deadline at work and had to leave early, while the baby decided he was going to wake up between 3 and 5 am the last 5 days in a row, but not go to bed until 11pm. I'm tired and I can't go to the little gym with the baby.

    Congratulations on your progress! And hang in there.... Life with a newborn isn't easy, but it will get better. Hopefully your husband will meet his deadline and be able to take his turn with the baby so that you can get in the time you need at the gym. But again, great work! Ten pounds is nothing to sneeze at!!! emoticon
