Maybe I should just change it to Wednesday. Hmmmm.
Anyways, I haven't lost any weight, this week, but I'm doing a bit better on the exercise front. Brian and I are attempting to get up early and work out before the boys wake up, but their wake up schedule has been a little funky these days so that doesn't always work. But most days I've been able to squeeze a bit of time during the day to jump on the treadmill for a mile or two. Not enough, but it's a start.
On Saturday or Sunday evenings, we've been taking a trip to the yogurt bar near our house. But we've been walking there as a family. So we get good exercise in and then eat frozen yogurt. Look people, it's better than ice cream. It's a nice time for us to talk and just be together as a family. Last weekend, we started walking and we were barely out of our neighborhood before my tennis shoes started to rub the skin on my Achilles tendons. I contemplated going home to change socks, but didn't want to hold everyone up. After walking just another short distance, we were barely a quarter mile into the mile and a half walk and I decided if I continued I would be in so much pain that I wouldn't be able to walk back. So Brian managed both strollers and I ran back to the house. Yes, ran. All the way back to our house. I put Bandaids on my already broken skin, changed into higher socks, and set out. I told myself that no matter where my boys were, I was going to run to them. (And I prayed that Brian had walked very slowly!) It was tough til I turned the corner and saw them and just kept running. Over half of a mile. I felt like I was going to die, but Brian was so proud of me and I was proud of myself. It's been a very long time since I ran that far without stopping. It's a small accomplishment in the grand scheme of things, but it was a breakthrough for me. I can keep running and I will keep running.
Now, it's time to focus more on food. One of my close friends has a sweet little girl who is a month older than my boys. She is struggling with weight loss too, as I think most postpartum mommies do. She said that she focuses so much on healthy food for her kiddo, but doesn't do the same for herself. I am so insanely guilty of this too. So this week's focus will be to eat healthy.healthy.HEALTHY!!
