Running Shoes

Well, it happened today. I laced up the good ol' running shoes.

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.

  1. Megan that is awesome!! I'm sure you felt great afterwards! Even though I haven't had a baby I still struggle exercising and "enjoying" running. Each day it gets better though! This challenge makes it even more worth it to see the rewards! I can't wait to read more :o)
