Back to the Gym!

(This is totally me at the gym. Can you tell?;)

On Thursday Abigail was 4 weeks old. it was time to get my booty back to the gym.

I am starting out slow. 9 months of being basically sedentary is not good for your body, let alone your muscles. So I need to build up some strength. If I went straight back to my old classes, I would kill myself.

I did the elliptical, stretched thoroughly, then did my yoga class. I was a little annoyed that my yoga class was less intense than usual. I wanted kind of a moderate muscle workout, and felt like I didn't even get a mild one. So I was a little surprised to be sore today. Pathetic!

I am trying to figure out a way to share my weight loss on this blog without disclosing my actual weight. Let's put it this way. I have forty more pounds to lose to get back to my normal weight. not my high School weight. Not even my post baby one and baby two weight. I am talking post three babies, working out muscular, "healthy" weight. Not super skinny weight. I have 40 pounds to lose to get to my "healthy" weight.

It may be a long hard road. Wish me luck!

Ok a few more weeks and I will have to set a goal to loose also. After slowly being pulled from most activities this time, my body is craving even a good long walk!haha Maybe we could set some goals and help motivate each other!

I really understand...If you are not wanting to take the baby to the childcare yet with cold & flu season....Tuesday and thursdays I do drop in and would love to hold a new baby......

tracey said... has a graph you can put on your blog and it automatically updates and you can set it up so it just shows pounds lost (or gained :-() not your actual weight. I used to have it on my blog, but there was so little movement on my graph from my lack of discipline that I took it off. Fun tool though. May your skinnyr graph dip faster and better than mine!
