I've been feeling like a load lately. I felt like my weight was starting to go down, but now it is just stuck again. It isn't the number that I focus on, but how I feel. I don't feel good about my body right now. My stomach just looks gross to me, still. I feel like I am not overeating, just eating when I am hungry and eating good things! (of course the occasional splurge) - but I can't seem to lose weight, despite running faster, swimming, and Jillian Shred workouts 3 times a week. I've read many moms out there go below their pre-pregnancy weight around 4-5 months, but I'm still stuck here! Should I eat less? Count calories? Switch up my workouts? What gives?
In the first week of marathon training for a possible Steamtown Marathon, it went pretty well. I had to get up at 5 yesterday to run 12 on the treadmill. Usually Nick is up around 6:30 so I figured I could get most of it done before he woke up. He was up at 5:30! I let him play/talk till he started to fuss around 6, and went to get him, then finished running after he was fed and happy. The morning workouts - I love getting it out of the way. For the long runs, they are definitely going to have to be done in the morning to be done! I also woke up early a couple of times this past week to be able to run w/o interruption and it worked well!
12 miles/1::50:36/9:13 minute mile - ehh. It felt ok, kind of dragging. My knees have been bothersome as of late.
Favorite comment of the week by Jess after my swimming fiasco:
So, did you go home commando?
Answer: no, I always have a change of clothes in my swim bag :)
