Friday I got permission to start working out again from my OB, 4 weeks after my C-section.
Since then I have done nothing.
I can list a host of excuses – caring for an infant and a 4 yr old at the top of the list, but the truth is that I feel I’ve fallen so far behind the wagon that I can’t even see it any more. I need to get back to Weight Watchers, but I am pretty sure we don’t have the budget for it as we will be now.adding a new daycare cost.
I have the gym membership but Sister goat is still to young to go to childcare there.
It is currently a high of zero degrees out in MN so heading out for an outside walk with the baby is a no go.
I need to find somewhere to begin but I have a mental block. Or maybe I just enjoy having one less thing to worry about right now. But at the same time I am frustrated that I have no clothes that fit and that I am back to my pre-weight watchers weight. (If you will recall at one point I had lost 80 lbs so I gained a ton of weight during this pregnancy).
There is no ignoring the fact that I need to get back on the wagon, I just need to find it.
So here is the start of my plan trying to keep my life realistic over the holiday season with the kids in tow and knowing my new routine won’t be normalized until I head back to work in Jan.
The plan so far:
1. Drink lots of water – 100oz a day min.
2. Experiment with online/on demand workout videos 2 times this week.
3. Blog 3 times this week to get back into the healthiness thinking
4. Crunch some numbers to hopefully make weight watchers work.
I am searching for the wagon, but I am determined to find it!
