I need a routine. Last time I lost 20 pounds running it was because I ran every day at 4:30pm, 3 hilly miles. Over this long Thanksgiving weekend I have gone for two hours midday or evening to the gym. However, my boot camp like tenacity has not really happened and instead I find the day sliping away with all teh stuff a working mom has to do, before I can get out the door to the gym. I also fill this mommy guilt, like I should be spending time with my son, and who gives a damn if I loose weight.
But still, I need to loose and I need to exercise to loose. Just nursing any more isn't cutting it. My weight has stayed at 189 for four weeks straight no change (it is down from an all time high of 220 at the end of pregnancy).I have 20 pounds to loose to get down to my prepregnancy weight. Then 20-30 more after that to get to my ideal weight. I'm leaving to go swimming this morning for an hour. Slip away while the baby and daddy are still asleep. I will make sure to eat healty today, cereal, Thanksgiving left overs in moderation, than a light dinner.
