Yep, baby boy will be 9 months on Valentines Day.¬† I had this notion that I would be back in the swing of my fitness routine, training all my clients again with a busy schedule and still fitting in my own workouts when I was 3 months postpartum. The idea of taking on a lot of clients again and working out daily was thrown out the window as I walked around my house like a zombie each day from not sleeping the night before.
I thought I would be back in to my pre-pregnancy clothes already. I am SOOOO not even close. Sigh! What I feel like really saying is *$%*, but the yogi in me knows its not good for my mind, body and spirit to think that way.¬† But just for the record, I do, I am human!
So, here I am 9 months postpartum and I am not happy with the shape I am in. Really I should say the “un-shape” I am in.¬† So, I am publicly outing myself.¬† I am saying this¬†“out loud” so¬†every other mom out there who feels the same way knows they are not alone.
But let me tell you…..my time has come.¬† Fat be gone. Muscle toning…hello! I want to be able to hold plank position for minutes and not once shake. I want to be able to have my cardiovascular endurance back. I want to not be the out of shape mom who is at my kids soccer game.¬† I really want back in a bikini….but I am not sure if I will ever brave this, fat or no fat, with the amount of stretch marks red marks of honour my belly has.
So today is the day, well actually tomorrow, as I am now going to bed so this day is over for me.¬† Active living say hello and please welcome me back. It was me, not you, we never really broke up in my mind. I just took a sabbatical.¬† Food…..we have an issue. I like you but its all about moderation.
So who is with me? We need to support each other. I will continue to try to update this blog as much as I sanely can between work, running to playdates, and enjoying my time with a child who doesn’t like to sleep ¬†
I have a game plan, as a certified personal trainer & wellness consultant I know what I should be doing and hope that my mind stays focused, as I get motivated to move my body.¬† I will share with you my ups and downs if you share yours….okay?
