So tonight, we embarked upon the Couch 2 5K journey once again. Holy hell, how did we ever get to week 6 last year! I swear, just putting my workout clothes made me feel huge! The shirt I wore to last years 5k is now tight, my sports bra gave me back fat and I wore my yoga pants unfolded because I felt like I needed something spanx-like to feel comfortable. Shoot, even my damn shoes were too snug, even my feet gained weight! HA!
I need to get healthy again, back to my 155 wedding weight. This 188 is the result of 2 back to back pregnancies with a little big of grief weight sandwiched in between and it needs to go, like STAT.
I do miss my pregnant belly, the BIG round belly. Yup. No need to suck in or wear spanx and the full panel maternity jeans are a life savor. Wait, they still are. It’s been 7 weeks, and granted I have lost a lot of the weight, I am STILL wearing my favorite pair of maternity jeans. They don’t give me muffin top like my size AE jeans, which was confirmed today is sill there. At least I can button the damn things, now I need to start working on this body and get it back to a healthy size. I’m not being too hard on myself, I do have to remember I have been pregnant more in the past 2 years than I haven’t.
So here we go, I’m kissing my comfort food goodbye and putting on my running shoes.. I have a 5K to run on March 5th for Piper! (Probably more walking than running because those big plans I blogged about in that link were a little hyped up- what the hell was I thinking?)
Week 1, Day 1….
