Baby Weight

Women constantly complain about losing weight after having a baby. How much you have to lose, how long it takes, how much harder it is than you think it should be, etc. I heard all this prior to having a baby. Did I believe them? Sure I did. Did I really believe them? No, not at all. How hard could it be? You put it on, you take it off. 'Nuff said.

To all those ladies that told me it was hard, I apologize for not believing you. In fact, I may have laughed at you. At your lack of dedication to the task at hand & at your laziness. Too bad I now have to laugh at myself too.

Here I am, just shy of 3 months later and I still have 16 lbs to lose. Yuck!

I don't have loughty goals of being super model-I-don't-eat-more-than-a-piece-of-celery-a-day-skinny. I just want to fit into my clothes again. I would rather not have 2 wardrobes. Just the one is fine.

I started weight watchers a week and a half ago. I feel bad actually having to say that I am doing that. I should just be able to lose the weight from running. However, due to my lack of physical fitness right now...running is just not doing it.

So, here I am hoping to get this weight off in the next 3 months so I don't have to renew my Weight Watchers membership. Good luck to me...apparently I need it.

Growth Spurt?

Wow. Mr. R is the world's most amazing baby. He has been sleeping through the night since 8 weeks, eats consistently well, smiles all the time...(jealous yet?). Until...
The past few days, he has refused to eat, slept a lot of the day, but woke up multiple times at night, and has been cranky.
This was me:
Tons of fun, I can assure you. Today, he seems to be back to his normal self, which means I can run before it gets too hot. Leaving the house with him before was not an option.
Hopefully my running will get back to what it was soon.
