A Much Needed Update

The last time I really updated was in October 2010!  I never revealed this on my blog, but the reason why I really stopped blogging here was because I was pregnant with my first child.  I know that you can incorporate exercise when you’re pregnant, but for me, I was really cautious and decided the most exercise I would do was walking.  I was also feeling really sick due to pregnancy hormones, and felt sick a lot.  Fast forward to April 11, 2011, I gave birth to a healthy baby boy and being a mother took over and didn’t give me much room to do anything else.

My son is now 4 months old now, and it really hit me last night.  I really need to get back into shape.  I need to take off the pregnancy weight and I want to be able to fit into the clothes I used to fit into before I got pregnant.  Getting rid of a bunch of clothes made me sad knowing that I couldn’t fit into them, and the idea of buying clothing sizes that I never thought I’d buy also made me feel bad.  So I decided there is no better time to make a change than now.  Because if I don’t do it now, when will I ever?

I bought Jillian Michaels’ Ripped in 30 DVD and I’m pretty excited to try it out.  I also plan to buy new sneakers so it will motivate me to keep at working out.  I also want to start eating a lot better than I am now.  I know it’s a lot to get back into a workout routine, but I want to do this.  It’s not only for me, but it’s for my son too.  I want to set an example for him as he gets older too.

I decided that in the coming weeks I am going to start rearranging some things at the blog too.  One thing at a time, but I’ll get there.  I really gotta get back into workin’ on my fitness!

    I took a look at P90x and the Rip 60.   I have yet to purchase it, and I have not heard all that much about the Rip 60.  I will keep posted to this blog to see what updates you have for us.

    Susan,

    Good blog post. It’s impressive to see people being so proactive. It is annoying to have to buy new clothes and its good to draw a line in the sand and decide to fight back!

    Deciding to take on exercise and following a healthy diet is easy but the problem is actually doing the plans that you have made. Most people would give but as you have said if you do not start now, you might not find time for it in the future. The best time to start is today and not tomorrow.

    Congratulation… I think walking and cycling are two most important exercise to become fit and healthy also a balanced diet might be helpful in reducing weight.

     Congratulations! I am sure that you would reach your target weight in no time at all. It takes a lot of determination and self-discipline to loose pregnancy weight in no time but I am sure you will since you clearly have the right attitude. Kudos to your hard work!

    I have two kids and I understand about the not wanting to buy clothes in a size you never thought you would wear. I was determined to lose the baby weight, so I literally bought one pair of shorts in the bigger size and that was it. I figured I would get so sick of wearing them (they weren’t very nice anyway) that it would motivate me to lose the weight- and it did really help me. I practically threw a party when I threw those away!
