I am going to be really honest today. Yesterday was my 6 week check up after having Alivia, and I got the green light to get exercising again. So, this morning I woke up with running on my mind.
I knew it was going to be hard. I mean running at 165lbs was sure to be different than running at my pre-baby weight of 135. Believe me.. it was different. Running with an extra 30lbs on my body, not to mention the 10lb baby girl I was pushing in her carseat/stroller. It was a challenge, but we did it. We ran/walked 2.65 miles in 38minutes and 31seconds. (I walked 5 mins. Ran 2. Walked 5. Ran 3. Walked 5. Ran 4. Walked 5. Ran 5. and finished walking to the house. About 4 mins).
At one point I felt like Forrest Gump finishing up a cross country trip around America.
Today marks the beginning of: Mission Get My Body Back. Even though I know it will never really go back to normal due to the stretch marks. Good-bye two piece swimsuits, hello mom-suits!
I hope you will be my accountability partner throughout this new journey I am starting. Please don't get tired of my exercise updates!
Get moving today.
