Last Thursday I posted Maddux’s two month update. I said I would post mine the next day. Yeah, that didn’t happen. Here we are, four days later, and I’m finally getting around to it. This weekend we cleaned, and cleaned, and cleaned. I also did a small amount of “back to school” shopping for clothes. Bad idea. I had been feeling pretty good about myself, and I even wore a bikini on our vacation. Then I went shopping for new dress pants. I had a few sizes in my head that might fit. I even grabbed a few pairs of pants that I just knew would be too big. Guess what? I could barely squeeze into them. It was awful! I try not to be the girl that cares about weight or dress size, but in the heat of the moment it’s hard to remember not to care.
I’m over it now, but I can’t pretend that it didn’t bother me at the time. I just feel so much like my “old self” that I don’t realize how much my body has changed. Oh well. What can ya do? I just have to keep working at it! Even though my numbers and sizes haven’t changed much since my one month update, I feel like I look somewhat different. If I don’t, please don’t let me know. 😉
If you think I don’t look like I’ve changed much, this will explain a lot:
I have to admit, I wish I had lost a few inches or a few more pounds. In the grand scheme of things, though, I know it’s only been a month. Part of that month I was on vacation with an infant and part of it was my first week back to work. To say things have been hectic would be an understatement. Now that I’m in my second week of work, I’m ready to get into some sort of routine with my running and lifting. Let’s just hope the baby is down for that. He makes the rules! 🙂
I better get started soon, though, because I have plenty of reasons to run!
