Since I can't figure out how to change over my pages, post pictures or make the layout of this post a little more user friendly, here are some pictures. Full disclosure: In the 7 week picture I am wearing a Yummy Tummy tank top-love these!! For the first month I used a belly bandit then transitioned over to Yummy Tummies. I highly recommend to give a smoother appearance. (but may want to stay away from the nursing one, you can see the circle outline of the opening for the bra under your shirts).
WEIGHT: 143! (it actually teetered to 142 but I didn't get off fast enough before it settled on 143)
Weight lost so far: 43 lbs!
AM (before kids woke up): 20 min run @ 6.0-6.5 mph
Leg press 3x30 50 lbs
Lat pull 3x20 45 lbs
Single leg press 3x30 30 lbs
Push ups 3x10
Walking lunges with over head press 5#
Plank with alternating knees on bosu, ab roller, overhead weight with mini crunch (notice, still no real crunches!!)
Had a fabulous workout because I took a complete rest day yesterday despite my internal dialogue wanting to do something.
PM (after baby went to sleep): 3 mile run
Baby is becoming slightly more predictable. Most days I am waking at 4:30 am. To some this may still sound horrible but this is perfect for me. I love love love that I am waking early again. I feed her, get her back down then get dressed and head to the gym. I love to get my work outs out of the way when you never know what your day will hold.
Because she is becoming more predictable, I am starting to have energy to notice my diet. I looked into my grocery cart the other day and was disappointed in the hot dogs, chips and coke that were present. I still bought them, and in fact ate that exact meal for lunch today, but at least I noticed how unhealthy it was.
I got my glycolic peel!! It is supposed to even out my skin and lighten some of the brown spots from sun and pregnancy. It was only slightly irritating for a short period of time. My skin is very tight and dry like I got a sunburn. It does look like I got a little color, just enough to make you feel alive and even out the skin. The peeling should start tomorrow but so far I am really liking the results! I would've taken a picture, but sadly even that is too much effort and time right now. I go for another in 3 weeks.
Next post, diet. Not an easy topic. There are so many facets and layers to what women deal with when it comes to eating. But it's time to address them. Until then, I am off to eat my hot dog with kraft cheese slices.
