I was so excited to weigh in this morning and I am officially at my pre-pregnancy weight! 4 and a half months of working hard are paying off! I have been on a plateau for a while and I think I'm finally pushing over it. I have lost 21 lbs total since I began and hope to lose at least 10 more. But I am so happy to at least have made it to this goal!
In connection with this, I am planning on running in a 5k sometime in the next few months. It will give me something to work towards and add a little extra to my routine. I do run several days a week with the stroller and a little at the gym, but I mainly get my cardio from the eliptical machine. I think this will help me and it is a good time of year since it is starting to get cooler and it will be more motivation to get outside. I know a 5k may not seem like much to some of you who run much further, but it is a stepping stone for me since I've never run in anything like this before.
***Anyone interested in running with me? I'd be glad to have some friends there with me. Whatever race I decide on will be for some charity, so it will be for a good cause! Let me know if you are interested!
