4-6 weeks is probably best for the horse you may think I refer to. If you don’t get it, well, I’m sorry. ;)
Anyway, I’m talking about the exercise wagon. I had been walking in the ‘hood but that’s not really going to help me lose any baby weight. So even though Isaac was having a terribly fussy evening, Ash got him under control and allowed me a good solid thirty minute workout on the elliptical. It was actually not nearly as hard as I thought it would be. I figured my legs would ache and my back weak. But I felt strong and capable and not even worn out, which seems pretty amazing considering I housed a small creature for about 9 months and then only birthed him about 3 weeks ago. The body is an amazing tool.
SO, I have roughly a year and a half to get into at least bathing suit shape. I know Ash would love me to someday wear a two piece but I haven’t done that since I was, like, ten, and I somehow don’t foresee this happening ever again. Two words: stretch marks. But the in shape part is very possible. I have done it before and I can do it again, this time even better. I want to be able to hang out on the shores of Waikiki without feeling self-conscious. When I am sippin’ on daiquiris by the hotel pool, I want to feel thin and dare I say, sexy? Moms can totally do that, right?
So here’s the goal breakdown:
This week: Walk when it’s not raining and 30 mins on elliptical every night
Next week: See how I feel and begin walk/run routine outside
Week after that: Run outside for a full fifteen minutes with no stopping
Wish me luck!
