Emotionally I feel in check. Spiritually I feel strong. Physically I feel........bleh......... Do you ever feel old??? Like really old?!? Sometimes just getting up off the floor is so hard and walking up the stairs with a heavy laundry basket leaves me breathless! My hip and back always seem to hurt and all I want to do is sit and eat something sweet :) This is NOT how a 28 year old should feel right?!? Pretty sure it's not, but if it is then I don't like it and I wont stand for it!
After I had Sam I felt so healthy. I bounced back really fast and I enjoyed going to classes and working out. It's definitely been harder this time around with Jane. I keep saying to myself, "Oh you just had a baby, you are fine!" and then finish off my bowl of ice cream...... Ya its almost been ten months since I had her. Ten months! It is time. I need to start doing something physical (besides chasing a nine month and three year old all day). So I have a plan. My body has always seemed to respond really well to Pilates so everyday this week I am going to get up and do it. I am also going to stretch and try to get back some of the flexibility I have lost........I can't let my sister be the most flexible one in the family ;) I am going to do this everyday for just one week and see if I feel stronger, leaner, more flexible, and less old. Hopefully I will and then I will have motivation to keep at it and do even more. Kevin and I have talked about doing the P90X challenge starting in March so we will see what happens and if we actually do it ;)
Hopefully my little plan will go well this week because I really don't want to have to start limiting myself on what I can or can't eat. That's the worst. I love my treats! I am still nursing Jane so I know that it is NOT healthy to go on a diet or anything like that. I just want to feel healthy and alive again! I decided to blog about this today because I felt like if it is in writing then I will actually do it ;) Any advice?!? I've got to get into good habits so by the time I am thirty I will be thirty flirty and thriving! hehe! Wish me luck! I'll give you a full report next week. Hopefully I'll be feeling and looking a little less old :)
