Body After Baby: Week 7

With Emily I gained just over 40 lbs.

At 7.5 weeks postpartum, I am officially at my pre-baby weight!

That is after my 2 lb lost this past week.


With Leah it took me 4 months I think to get back to my starting weight.

I am proud of my 7.5 weeks!

I am feeling great and super motivated right now.

Although I am at my pre-baby weight now, it actually is 10 lbs more than my pre-baby weight with Leah...

So that is my new goal.

C25K is going awesome.

I am at the 20 minute runs...

I am eager to run each day and look forward to it.

Yesterday when we woke up it was raining...

And I still went!

I guess I am tired of running in 90+ degree weather...

And in the morning, before the girls are fully awake, is just the best time for me to run.

Running at night keeps me up...

And we all know I need any sleep I can get right now!

I just did not want to waste the quiet morning.

My brother brought up doing a 5k together when he comes to town at Christmas...

And I am super excited to do it with him and Sarah!

Running 5ks is something I have done before...

But nothing I ever prepared for.

I have come to realize that it is a little strange...

In the past I just showed up, ran it without running anything prior to train, and completed it somewhere in the 35 minute mark...

I had no idea it was something people worked towards and made a goal for.

This time I am anxious to see what I can do it in when I actually work towards it!

I've been thinking that I am doing so well with this because I am currently not studying for an exam.

As silly as that sounds, I like to have something personal to work towards.

To concentrate on.

To put my effort towards.

To obsess over.

I have not taken an exam since Nov 2011, but I was busy growing a baby.

Now that I am working on modules and will not be sitting for an exam until October 2013 I will welcome this new challenge.

And you know how I hate to fail!! 

Ideally my new goals are:

  • Lose 10 lbs to get to Pre-Leah weight. 
  • Lose another 10 lbs to get to Wedding/High School size. 
  • Be able to run 5+ miles at a time.  I honestly do not think I have ever ran much more over 3 miles at once time.  I would love to be able to say "Oh I just ran 5 miles this morning!" ;) 
  • Maybe run a half marathon some day... My brother and his wife have done it a few times and I think it would just be an amazing goal to work towards. 

But lets just focus on one goal at a time!
