So in honor of the start of my couch to 5k program I thought I'd dedicate this post and share my Pre baby body and post baby body. To not only hold me accountable to to give myself more of a visual goal
This is me Pre baby(circa 2007) right before I met my husband
135 pounds. And to think I thought I was heavy then. Of course during our dating months and various deployments I gained about 10 pounds that fluctuated on and off so when Gianna was conceived I was 145 pounds.
Again I thought I was heavy. Sigh
Now two babies later I am at an all time high of 160. I got down to 150 by April of this year but with the hubby coming back home and vacation I've gained 10 pounds back. The sad thing is I don't eat that unhealthy. From taking with friend the opinion is I don't eat enough throughout the day.
My daily food intake looks something like this
Lunch- a sandwich or salad
Dinner- whatever I cook. Usually a chicken dish and veggies.
If I drink soda it's diet and I limit myself one per day. I do drink a few glasses of wine every night though which could be the problem.
But it's frustrating to not lose any weight and to keep gaining
So yesterday marked the first day of my couch to 5k. The program has me starting off slow. Walk for 10 mins jog for 2. Totally doable. In fact after I hit the minute mark of running I felt awesome. By the 2 min mark I was a winded animal. But when it was all over I felt amazing. Proud of myself and excited to continue in with this journey
I know in order to achieve results I need to watch my diet as well. So I've cut out soda and wine during the week and all junk and fast food.
Today breakfast was oatmeal and a fruit smoothie. Lunch will be tuna and a protein shake and dinner will be a salad or a sandwich since tonight Is a busy night due to Gianna's gymnastics and my have a book club meeting.
And now to reveal my post baby bod. Yikes
My weight this morning was 161.0 I'm looking to get down to my Pre Gianna weight of 145. Here is to the start of my
