While the day was looking really sucky, I got call that actually made me cry...a good cry.
Before we opened the store, I was working out on a regular basis and lost lots of inches. I really changed the way I looked and felt really good. Though I HATE to run! I LOVE to rollerblade but I guess that's out for a bit.
So, when construction started on the store, I had to hold off on the workouts because I was so dang tired!! I was painting till 9-10pm at night and getting up at 5am wasn't cutting it! Money got tight with us opening 3 weeks late and I cancelled my membership.
Just this morning I was in the shower thinking I couldn't wait for nicer weather so I could walk and ride my bike outside with my son. I'm just feeling flabby and gross...you all know!
I kept thinking moving more will result in a faster recovery time and will make me feel better all around!
So, today I get a call from my gym asking if I was interested in doing some balloon work in trade. I asked what sort of trade was she thinking about..and she said "What about a 1 years membership." I literally almost started to cry on the phone and told her I would be happy to work something out.
Can you believe it??
I called my workout partner who is also a good friend of mine and she just screamed in the phone with glee!! LOL
I gained so much with my son and I was careless with eating. I remember one doctor visit the nurse weighed me and it was 10 pounds and she said "Well that can't be right."
Yeah, my husbands chocolate shakes on a nightly basis would do that to ANYONE!
So I'm almost at the point of thinking "Not again.... I refuse to gain that much weight!" I'm already starting 40 pounds over where I should be! Doc said 4 pounds a month would make him happy. Which I gained 4 already.
Speaking of eating...anyone else get so hungry you gag? LOL
I knwo how you feel, I was in the same boat. I was almost back down to my size 5 and bam I am pregnant and now I feel so fat and unattractive. I am hoping that all the weight will fall off quickly after Ashtyns here.
That is so awesome that you could trade for a gym membership! I weighed 202 when I delivered my 1st son and went back to 127 ! Now I'm right back up there . I understand your pain as far as the weight goes, I will have to bust my butt this summer! B)
that's awesome..i have never lost much weight after my pregnancies so each time i just keep packing it on. it's disgusting.....but it doesn't stop me from eating like a cow. hopefully i lose some of it after this one.
