And so it begins... (giveaway closed)

To start things off let's do a CSN giveaway for a $35 gift certificate! They have all sorts of great stuff. There's over 200 online stores where you can get all sorts of things even swingsets! Who knew!

To enter all you need to do is let me know if you follow my blog and leave a separate comment telling me what your favorite dessert is (I know, random...but sweets sound SOOO good right now!).

Giveaway ends next Wednesday (2/9) night and winner will be posted Thursday (2/10) morning. 

I had a full self shot, but maybe I'll post one on a day I look better. lol!

This week's goal (Thursday-Sunday) is to walk 30 minutes for 3-4 days.

One day down! I was going to get up this morning when Rosie woke up to eat around 6 and go walk around the neighborhood, but I decided to sleep instead. Then I was going to go after feeding her at 8:30, but she took her time and there wasn't enough time between her feeding and her 2 week check up. Sooo, I held off and put it off and off and off until about 3:15 when Rosie fell asleep and the other kids were playing. I was going to walk outside, but decided to do it inside since it was 20°F outside and my winter clothes don't fit all the way yet.

For 30 minutes I walked in circles around my living room and kitchen while listening to Psych on the TV. You do what you have to do, right? I felt GREAT. No cramps, no aches, no pains. I feel 100% recovered from delivery. I'm telling ya, this time was like magic! I've recovered SOOO fast, it's amazing.

My start weight when I got home after having Rosie was 226, my goal is to get back down to the 160s and run another marathon (not pregnant this time!) and a few half marathons. I'd LOOOOVE to do it this year, but we'll see how I feel and how well I do. I just have to take it one day at a time and be patient. I've been weighing in every Saturday with my man and my first weigh in was 213.8 (good-bye water weight!!) Let's hope it goes down steadily. I tried to follow the WW plan, but I think it's too early for it cause my milk supply just dropped, so I started eating more, but still being mindful and my milk went back up. The other key I found LOTS and LOTS of water. Gotta get those fluids.

Tomorrow's goal is another 30 minutes, hopefully in the morning this time. I'm so much happier and I have much more patience for the kids when I get it in early.

I'm excited! I'm back to bloggin' and running/walking! :)

My favorite dessert is the Asphalt Pie from Wingers... so yummy. Especially when it has extra, extra carmel drizzled on it. *drool*
