Good Things Come To Those Who Weight

I'm down 8 lbs (total) so far by my scale.

This morning I was 2 lbs lighter!

I'm in a new "tenths" place!

To my Fat I say: Take THAT, blubber. And wash it down with a nice tall glass of suck it!

I feel fantastic.

I went to the gym last night and felt so great on the treadmill. I told Joe it's nice to know that whatever calories I burn, I can be confident that I am making progress, not burning off PART of that donut I ate.

I felt so good that I was able to totally disregard the fact that my orange and pink flowered grannies were dangerously higher than my sweat pants. And I'm almost positive that you could see the design through my white t-shirt. I'm talking at least 2 inches higher.

But I didn't care.

I'm actually moving forward instead of struggling to tread water.

Don't misunderstand.

I'm still hungry.

But darn if those girls at Jenny weren't right...it IS getting easier!

On the other hand...my core is still completely shot and my back "catches" if I move wrong.

That is compliments of all those babies calling my belly home.

I need to do some kind of pilates. That's what the lady at the gym told me when I signed up for a membership.

She said she recommends it for all her new mommies.

I hadn't told her I'd just had a baby.

She "figured it out" just by looking at me.

That was depressing.

But who do I think I'm fooling.

I've completely lost the ability to "suck it in."

So I tried doing some planks the other day.

The directions online suggest doing the kind that look like a push-up and also the one handed ones where you are on your side.

They say to hold that position for about 60 seconds.

60 seconds? No problem.

I can do anything for a minute.

So, I assumed the position.

For exactly 3 seconds.

That sh*t is hard.

Look at this guy who's demonstrating the move on the Mayo Clinic's site.

LOOK at his face.

Does he look like he's having fun??

He looks like he's going to vomit.

That's probably exactly how my face looked.

Who knew pilates could be so hard!

But today's another day. I actually can't wait to go to the gym so I can plug in my data afterward and see how many steps I walked. Yesterday I walked a total of +13000 steps. That's +5000 over my goal.

Sweet.

This is starting to get fun.

Thanks for tagging along with me on this train wreck journey. =)
