But now if I ever want to wear clothing other than pajamas, I need to say good-bye to the sweets (don’t worry my loves…..it’s not forever….we’ll reunite one day!) and start pumping the iron. The doctor gave me the green light to resume exercise a while back and I actually was pretty good about it. Worked out at least 4 times a week and started feeling energized and healthy again. The first two weeks were rough though. After not working out for 4/5 months (yeah, i was a lazy preggo lady) I had to get through that “help-i’m-gonna-die-i-think-i’m-having-a-heart-attack-please-call-911” phase. Yeah, that phase sucks. But I got through it and started feeling better about myself. Didn’t lose much poundage, but I did manage to squeeze (and i mean SQUEEZE) into my biggest size pre-pregnancy jeans. (It’s all about the small victories!). But then this big move came and all my extra energy has been put towards unpacking and painting and settling in. Almost done though. 3 bedrooms, kitchen, dining room, and hallway are painted- just need to do living room and bonus room and that’s it! Yay! After that, I’m lacing up my sneakers and hitting the pavement again. The weather here is gorgeous and I can’t wait to check out the streets of our new neighborhood!
Till then, I’ll just look to Bailey for motivation – I mean, she is my accountability partner. Of course she does ask for cookies and Dora Popsicles after every meal, so maybe I should rethink her position. hee hee! Here’s a video of her working out with me from a month or so ago. And yes, I like to do cheesy in-home work-out videos. This particular one is The Firm and it even comes with cute little pink hand weights. I guess they want you to remain girly while breaking a sweat! :
P.S. – After Bailey stripped down she went streaking in the quad and then stopped by KFC for a snack. ha ha! (Name that movie!!)
