Say it with me now….5 more pounds! 5 more pounds! Yes, that is how much I have left to loose to return to my pre-baby weight. (And then just 5 more to get to the weight that I really want to be.) Wahoo!! My goal is to get back to pre-baby weight by the time Eli is 6 months old…which is May 7th. I have a little less than 3 weeks to make it happen, and I think I can come darn close. I am going to have to stop making homemade pizza and get rid of the rest of my marshmallow peeps, but barring any major setbacks, I am on my way to success.
So, my problem is that my body is not exactly the same shape it was pre-Eli. Even when I was heavier, my stomach was always flat. That is just not the case anymore. I hope that by working on my abs, my rounded tummy will flatten out. Anyone have experience with this post baby?
My plan for the next 3 weeks are as follows:
1. Focus mostly on fruits, veggies, and lean proteins. This won’t be too difficult during meal time. Snacks are often where I add unnecessary calories so I will stick to fruits and veggies for snacks as much as I can.
2. Walk for fitness every day, and add in strength training 3x a week. I did really well 2 weeks ago, but have slacked since then. Here it is in print, so now I have to do it!
3. Track my food and fitness. The good, the bad, the ugly…I will write it all down.
4. I will allow myself one small treat per day. I’m talking 1/2c ice cream or one marshmallow peep. Sweets are my treats 🙂
I am confident that if I follow the above steps, the 5 pounds are history! Tune in May 7th to hear my results!by
