I need to lose weight, and have been talking about losing 10-15 pounds for almost a year. I haven't done anything about it because I knew Kevin and I would most likley be trying for another baby (Clara). I knew I would be able to sport a bikini being big and pregnant, but now, NO WAY!
Now, I am back to the weight I was when I got pregnant with Clara. I am ready to lose the weight I have gained with the girls. I am not sure if Kevin and I will go for #4, and even if we do, I am ready to make the commitment to lose about 10 pounds. I want to feel good about myself, and right now, I do not.
When I was married 4.5 years ago, I weighed about 115-118 pounds, now, I weigh about 130. I was a rockin' 110 in college; in the best shape of my life. I want to feel that good again. You may say I don't look like I need to lose weight, but I certainly feel it, and my body needs it, too. I need to get my body in better shape, even if I don't get back to my wedding weight.
I've had about one year to prepare myself mentally. I've always said Spring 2010 I would begin. Here we are in 2010, and March is approaching. I have been trying to think of the best way to do this. It is hard with three little girls to make time for the gym. I would much rather try to do it with my girls. The hard part....I don't run. I've thought about starting to rollerblade again, and I could do that with our double stroller, too. I am also not motivated enough to work out in front of a TV either on a regular basis either. I have thought long and hard about how I am going to lose this weight, and I am going to learn to run. Yes, me, the anti-runner. Please don't laugh!
In order to keep me true to myself, I thought I would start a blog (separate from this) about running for 90 days. I am going to give myself 90 days to make an opinion on running, and in that time, I hope to lose a little bit of weight, and more importantly, get my body in shape.
I hope it works. I am ready to do something good for myself. It is something I will be able to do with my girls, my husband, my friends, and neighbors. Once my blog is up and running, I will post the address.
I need some ideas on what I should name my new "running blog"...........what do you think? Leave a comment below!
