For the past 12 years I've been a faithful and avid gym enthusiast. But, when I finally got pregnant, after four years of trying, the doctors banned me from the gym because the baby wasn't gaining enough weight and they weren't sure if the gym was a contributing factor. Yikes.
Needless to say, I was the Pillsbury Dough Girl when I had Nathan! I really could have cared less because the baby's health was the only thing that mattered. But, five weeks after my C-section I was back in the gym. The weight has come off slow and I got on the scale for the first time since being pregnant this week. I was mentally ready.
I will freely admit, I'm not prepregnancy weight yet - I have almost two pounds to go . And, I've figured out a way to get there.
I really dislike cardio - it bores me but I appreciate it's value and know I need to just do it. So, I got creative.
I've figured out a way to attach my lap top to my treadmill!!!! Now, when Nathan takes his morning nap I do my school work, listen to XM radio, and distract myself online!! It's awesome. I've written this entire post from my treadmill!!! Who said you can't do it or have it all!!!
I have a new reason to be obsessed about my health - Nathan. I need to be around for a long time - I need to know he's going to be ok. Sure, I know God is in control of the timing but I have to do what I can ~ my part.
