Motivation!

Yes indeed! Motivation!! Lots of it! I'm so full of it that I'm about to burst! I WANT TO GET FIT AGAIN, if it will be the last thing I do. I would have started earlier but have had an inflammation in my hip since Allison was born. Now it's only 6 months left to our wedding and I don't plan to walk down that isle, feeling like this.....like I'm older than my actual age, that I'm less fit than I've felt in years and heavier than ever. No thank you! So I'm saying HELLOOOOOO to healthy foods and training again and bye bye to giving into cravings that breast feeding unfortunately gives you (besides water.....I'm also saying HELLOOOO to water! Lots of it in fact!) and to giving into the temptation to just go to sleep after my little one has fallen asleep around 8pm. After all, I have my own Cross trainer now, so no excuses!

....and to be clear...this is not a new years resolution....I don't do those....this is just me, getting back to me, post-pregnancy.  I will just use this blog to occasionally write about doing this because I know, now that I'm doing it - there's no turning back! I would be too embarrassed..... Failure is not an option ;))

Strategy:
Nothing fancy.... Starting off the first month with using the Cross trainer at least 3-4 times per week, combined with daily walking and core exercises. No heavy dieting....well, not really! I will still eat everything, but in less quantity and in the right combinations. Sweet stuff only on weekends. In the second month, I'm hoping to have developed enough muscles in my back and abdominal area to be able to add running to this plan without jeopardizing my back and then I want to replace the more simple core training exercises with Pilates......and ooooohhhh strecthing!! Lots and lots of stretching! Right now, I feel about as flexible as a train!

Goal:
Loosing most of my residual preggers weight and getting back in shape before July 2013.

...and to boost my motivation even more, I bought myself a new running outfit that I won't freeze in! Like it? All from Zalando.ch

Running in Winter


Oh my......wish me luck!
Yaaaaaaay to getting back in shape! Let's do this!!

  2. Great post on journaling, Carrie. I have only tried this after completing my book, usually for character blog posts. Most times my books evolve from an idea or story question, and the characters evolve from that...except with Renner. He was Trey's partner in Journey's End, and I knew as soon as he hit the page that he'd star in his own book.
    Thanks for sharing your method, Carrie. I shall try this. :-)
