When I got pregnant, I weighed 136. Just before giving birth I was 170-something, I forget now. Post-birth, 157, and last I checked I'd dropped all of 4 of those extra baby-pounds. I haven't weighed in this week because I've been SO bad over the past week, I don't think I even want to know where I've ended up. Oh, and did I mention that I've done almost no exercise in the past couple of weeks?
Starting today, I'm back on the wagon. No more binges, no more keeping ice cream in the house all the time, no more stress-eating or sweets as treats when I've had a rough baby-day. If I can be good most of the time, the occasional treats are okay, but the should be the exception rather than the majority.
Starting today, I'm also going to get more exercise. On days when it's too cold/rainy for walking, I can almost always find 10-30 minutes for yoga. I'd like to join a gym, but I don't know if our budget would allow that, nor if my husband would want to do double duty (working + daddying) for several days a week while I go. Food for thought.
To kick-start this, I went our for two long walks this afternoon. (I wonder how to calculate the extra calories that burns with a baby strapped to my torso...) When I had my lunch and wanted more food afterwards, I had a salad wrap rather than cookies or other less-healthy choices.
I can do this. But it will take work; I can't just wish the weight away. :P
