Resurfacing to say Hello

Tuesday, April 17, 2012

Hello! I don't know if anyone remembers me. I joined SP in February 2011 and proceeded to lose 23 pounds and regain a lot of fitness. I also made some friends! On Memorial Day 2011, my weight loss came to halt when I found out I was pregnant with my second child.

My son, Landry, was born on February 13 and he is a wonderful addition to our family. Unfortunately, I came out of the pregnancy with 20 of the pounds I lost last spring. So now I am starting back from the beginning.

Sadly, I was not one of those women who could exercise throughout pregnancy. I was just too tired.

I have been doing the C25K running program to try to get my fitness level rebuilt. It's hard to find time to exercise with a toddler and an infant, it will be even harder when I return to work next month. Eating is where I am really struggling. Nursing my little hulk (currently 15 pounds) makes me hungry, hungry, hungry. For chocolate, chocolate, chocolate.

I'm looking forward to rejoining the Spark Community and participating in some challenges. I know I can find my motivation here.

    I remember your pregnancy after our challenge last year. If you find a good challenge you want to do--let me know and maybe we can use the old teamwork thing!
