I just started back last week. I had a csection so I was told to wait 8 weeks. Last week I did a Cardio Combat class (kicked my butt), and Sat. I went and did an outdoor bootcamp class (really kicked my butt). I hate how out of shape I am. I will start running again this week, starting in Aug. I am hoping to start training again for a half marathon. I have about 20 lbs. to go to be at my prepregnancy weight.
I can't get to the gym, but I'm really into getting healthy. I'm already lower than pre pregnancy and sell losing, my skinny jeans are now getting to big, Woohoo! I do believe my husband and I could be insane because we started doing the insanity workout. It is kicking our butt but I love it! I'm also going to do my first 5k in August. Well actually July, but I don't think the color run counts, probably won't be a lot if running, just having fun. I'm excited to be skinny, lol!

I'm feeling comfortable enough to start working out. Having the energy is another story. I have some poundage to lose so I better get started! i am probably just going to start with brisk walks outside.
Hmmm, "back at the gym" would imply that I ever went there in the first place. Exercising is not high on my list, nor do I seem to have time with all my kiddos. My time will be even more stretched when I go back to work.

After major abdominal surgery at 4 weeks and now a hole in my stomach where my incision split open my Dr told me to not even mention working out to him for 8 more weeks. I am a hot mess. I have lost 72 lbs since having her , that is 40lbs below my prepreg weight. All my clothes fall off and I feel like a big ol' frump.
I wish that I was back to exercising, I miss it like crazy. I am still not feeling 100% downstairs so I am waiting for the doctor to check me out before I do anything too exciting (I am 5 weeks PP). I did go for a walk last night for the first time. I was slow but I did it and it felt great to be out and moving. I have thought about doing the Insanity workout but right now I am going to stick with walking and then the elliptical. Right now jumping around sounds about as appealing as going to the dentist.
I'm running most mornings, but I haven't rejoined the gym yet. Our gym babysitting only allows 1 year olds and up, and I don't really want my husband and I to have to go to the gym separately while the other watches the baby. It would just take away from the time we have together.
I'm not quite where I want to be, but I'm comfortable with getting into a bikini and proud of how I look 9 weeks out.
I am 12 pounds away from pure pregnancy weight and 24 away from goal weight. I plan on going to the gym with dh starting Monday. I'm ready. I was doing the Jillian Michaels 90 day program before I conceived so hopefully I'll get back to that soon.
