I'm on the track to making myself healthier and better again.
I did this about 8 months after my 2 year old was born. I lost 17.5 pounds in 8 weeks WITHOUT exercise.
This time around I'm exercising, watching what I eat, cutting back portions and adding in some juicing. I'm hoping that I'll be on the way to a healthier me and losing some of the weight.
I have about 14 pounds to go to be pre pregnancy so that's my main goal, but also toning up and gaining some muscle.
I'm doing the Couch to 5k program right now to get back into running. I'm 1 week in. After that is complete I'll work on a 10k program.
Cutting back portions isn't too difficult since I'm snacking often and doing the juicing as my snacks, so this one isn't too hard and I'm not a crazy stickler for it.
I'm watching what I eat to an extent. I'm not going crazy but am allowing myself some cruddy foods every couple days. This week was ice cream, but my daughter turns 7 on Friday and I'll have cake then! But I'm cooking healthier and cutting WAY back on carbs. Dinners are a meat and lots of veggies.
Getting into running again has been SO much fun. I ran track in high school, but was a sprinter, so long distance is all new to me. But I know it will get me back in GREAT shape!
