Back on track!

So I have made the move. I am back up in Alaska. I don't have a house yet, but Im on the list. Once I get into my own house and get settled it will get much better. I am thankful to have the support system I have though! Its made things so much easier to transition!

I have a workout buddy!! WHOOT WHOOT! Today I really was just tired and didn't feel like going and she got me up and off the couch! Once I got on I was fine it was just the motivation to go. Having a newborn makes it tough for me to find the motivation to go cuz Im always so tired. I can't wait til he starts sleeping a little longer during the nights so I can get some rest! BUT I have done cardio the last 2 days and im super proud. I go to the doctor on November 16 to make sure my body is healed and I can move forward. Until then the elliptical is going to be my best friend! I got on treadmill today just to walk. But I started hurting about 10 min into it. So I got on the eliptical and it was so much better. I dont know what it is about that machine but it doesnt hurt me! And I sweat more so I'll take it! I also worked out my upper body on monday. My doc told me for sure DO NOT do lower body or abs yet. I can't wait til I can though! But I also know I get to be patient and not push it! Im learning to be patient. That is a hard thing for me but its slowly coming around.

Now I gotta work on the eating part. I know its 80 percent but its also my biggest demon in life!! I know I can conquer it but I also know I can't overwhelm myself. Im taking it a little at a time and its slowly coming around!

Have you thought about doing weight watchers? I was skeptical for a long time, but after watching two friends do it and lose weight, I signed up. I lost 10 lbs in 2 months just from changing some minor things. I really think it is a good program. You should try it for 3 months online and see what you think. I wasn't super strict, but I'm sure if I would have been I could have lost the 20 lbs I set out to lose! Good luck! I have a whole list of foods and snacks I love because of it, so if you want, I can send you a list!

Weight loss is NO FAIRY TALE said...

Way to go, Heather! You're rocking it gurl!
