Getting my run on.

Fat Pants

I wore my fat pants out in public today.  Did you hear that??  Less than three weeks after having a baby I wore non-maternity jeans out in public.  Uh, go me!  OK, I had to do the hair binder trick on the button so I didn’t have a muffin top but I’m still calling this a win.  My body is shrinking back down nicely.  I’m very pleased.

My weight this morning was 165.6.  Also a nice thing to see my weight creep down.

Last night Kris told me he wants to work out five days a week while I’m on leave.  Okey-dokey.  I told him I need to start working out again too (I have that duathlon in August I need to start preparing for) but that I shouldn’t for another couple weeks yet.  I should really wait until I get the all-clear from my midwife at my six week check up but most likely I’ll wait another week or two and then start slowly.  A short jog or a quick bike ride and work my way up again.  It’s going to be really hard to find (make) time for exercise when I go back to work.  I’m already thinking about strategy and schedules.  When I decide what that looks like, I’ll share it with you guys and ask for some feedback.

My back to work date?  July 21st – the day after my wedding anniversary!

    That is awesome! I remember the day I was able to wear my “normal” clothes, and you are right, it definitely gives you a boost. And I had a hard time waiting to “officially” be able to work out again too. Maybe you can get an early “okay?”

    Good luck going forward! Kids do add an element of challenge, but I’m sure you’ll do great :-)
