Feeling flabby today!!

God I have been so bloated these past few days, growl I just feel yuck! I know I have to get off my butt and I have to eat wayyyyy less
My guilty confession that I beleive I made on here a while ago was that I am now at the same weight I was when I ‘delivered’ Evan. HELLO!!
That means I am 25lbs heavier then I was before I got pregnant. A week after giving birth. I had lost all the baby weight since I only gained 23 lbs total, but then I replaced my no eating with comfort eating, just not caring and eating anything at all I want. Also with no exercise since summer.  Winter is hard on me cause I am really effected by the weather and I hate the cold, so I hybernate and eat lots of carbs and sugar. This for a girl with a notorious issue with Candida overgrowth is bad bad bad.
For example: Yesterday I had a great and healthy breakfast, an unsweetened (except for natural occuring fruit sweet) smoothie with pinnaple, skim milk, flax seed oil and protein powder. Great! Then for lunch I had macaroni and cheese and clementines, not to bad, sure it’s a lot of carbs but it’s a portion controlled meal, then for dinner a roast beef with root vegetable mix that Dave made up in the slow cooker, ok not bad if that was it for the day. BUT then I had chips cause Dave was eating them, and some liquorice. I am very influenced by my husband. Now if I had gotten an iota of exercise then I would feel less bad. However, my day went like this. Sit at desk all day, walk only to lunch room, photocopier and bathroom. Drive to and from work, then come home and sit on butt on couch from 6-10 then to bed. Not one bit of exercise.

That being said- I have a free membership at the YMCA from work, so I am going to do the Couch to 5k plan on the treadmill until it get’s warmer when I can go running outside. I used to love love love running. It’s an amazing stress releiver. I am also going to incorporate some weight training. If and when I get pregnant then I will figure out with the doctor what I can do. I need to move. I feel just plain antsy sitting around this much, Winter is hard enough already. It just sucks so when it’s dark when you leave in the morning and dark when you get home.  Hard to feel motivated. I just want to cuddle under blankets.

“Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.” — Albert Einstein. When it feels like your world has been shattered, and you have reached rock bottom, you must make a choice: Stay where you are and fade away, or keep moving forward. Thankfully I chose to move forward and was blessed with the two most wonderful children after the death of my first in early labor. Things are looking up.

  1. How does the Couch to 5K plan work?
    And I understand how hard it is to get motivated – cold and dark doesn’t inspire me much to get out and get moving. Bah.

    • It’s bascically a gradual plan that get’s you back into running slowly and gradually, building instead of just jumping right in and overdoing it.
      If you google it lots of stuff will come up. You can also download podcasts that will walk you through each session.

      • I did go and google it. I’ve checked out other learn-to-run programs but I haven’t progressed far. Actually getting to the gym and stepping on the treadmill every day would help with that, I’m sure 😉

      • hahah I hear ya! At least this one they only say do 3x a week, and also when it’s warmer it’s great to do outside! I used to love love love running on nice summer nights it’s meditative, such a great way to clear your head. When I used to have anxiety attacks last spring I would just run, run like mad, it’s felt so good.
