So if you have been reading my blog for very long you know I had a baby last year. I was already overweight as it was but on top of that I gained 36 pounds! It took me about 6 months to get back down to my pre-baby weight. I didn’t really do much to lose it other than be very busy taking care of a newborn. I breastfed for one month and my milk just stopped, so I can’t even say that it was breastfeeding that made me lose it. I wasn’t trying, it just happened.
I am supposed to weigh 126-154 at 5’8 tall according to charts so that would leave me about 58 pounds overweight at the very least. You do the math! I am ready to get in shape! It’s fall now and it’s boot season and tights season and I want to look good! Here’s what I did today to start getting in shape, slowly but surely.
I got on the treadmill for 15 minutes today and got up t a speed of 3.2. It’s slow but I am just starting people! I really want to run but I am going to focus on walking for now because I don’t want to my knees to start hurting like they do when I run sometimes. I did a total of .71 of a mile.
My first goal for myself is to do this 3 times a week for a month and if I can accomplish this, then I will up the days and or time. This is my first step.
I plan on starting to use MyFitnessPal next week to track my food but for now I am doing one thing a week so that I can make this sustainable.
Just wanted to fill ya’ll in on what’s up with some of my goals I have talked about in the past.
