Yep, slowly but surely the weight is coming back. Despite my healthy-er eating and a little exercise. (I cropped out the actual numbers, because I just don't want to share that depressing fact with the world)
Let's be honest, when do I have time to exercise? Either before the family wakes up or after the kids go to bed. That leaves me with 4 am or 10 pm. Really. I am not exaggerating. Who wants to wake up that early? I know I should have done better while on maternity leave, but there always seemed to be something more important to do. I am trying not to make excuses, but I just keep hitting bumps in the weight loss road that trip me up. I need to get better at making exercise a priority.
As you can see, I did really good for the first month that R was around, but then it started creeping back upward. No I am fighting off pneumonia and the cough is making it really hard to do any type of exercise. So, while I am waiting for my z-pack to work, I am going to mentally psych myself up for some ass-kicking in August. I have the 4th Trimester Body pictures then and I would like to feel comfortable in my body. Even if I have only lost a couple of lbs, I think that little bit will make me feel infinitely more positive.
