    Default The home stretch

    This is my second BH weight loss journal. I had the first after DS was born, and managed to get to my goal weight.
    Now DD is 10 weeks and its time to get back there again, because I'm done with babies so this time is for keeps. I've just joined up with Michelle Bridges 12wbt this week, so hoping to start our challenge a little lighter anyway.
    I don't have lots to lose, for me this is more about getting back into lifelong healthy habits, and toning up.

    I had a little potential health scare the other week, and while i got the all clear, it made me realise I'm no spring chicken and i really need to up the ante on living healthily

    Start weight: 69.5kg
    Goal weight: 63kg

    That may be adjusted as I go. I'm quite fond of my curves and tend to lose weight on my hips, so if my hips are getting too slim before goal weight i'll stop.

    So, the moment of truth (eeeeek!)

    Week 1 (only 10 weeks post partum so still have a bit of a jelly belly!)

    Gah, I'm going to need to make DP push me out the door to go for a jog tonight. It's hot, the kids woke up 8 times between them last night, DD has been sleeping badly all day (so I've spent the majority of the afternoon bouncing on a fitball to try to get her down).
    We don't celebrate V day, but I've put a bottle of champagne in the fridge because we have it and don't usually drink it, so I thought it was a good excuse to have some.
    But get this- I know if i go for a jog this evening I won't feel like drinking when I get back, so I'm seriously considering going for a jog tomorrow so i feel like drinking a glass of champagne tonight. isn't that the most ridiculous thing you've ever heard??
    So new plan: take the bubbles out of the fridge and save it for the grandparents to drink at DS's 3rd birthday on Sunday. Much better, right? Then between 6 of us (GPs plus me and DP) I'll only have one small glass. Now i actually have to go and do it...

    My first instinct was you should drink the champagne! And then I was really proud of you for the decision you made! Well done

    Well done FL. My DS2 is 11.5 weeks old, and DS1 is 2..... I don't know how you have the energy, I am in awe. Like you I have a smallish amount to lose, but eager to get moving

    Thanks peasmum. Exercise is sort of my 'escape', it relaxes me. So i try to make time for it, even at the expense of sleep sometimes! When DS was a baby I would go for a jog after his 5am feed.

    FL, you're awesome. Good choice going for a jog and leaving the bubbly to be split between six people and not two!

    I'm sorry to hear that, hun. Remember that it's just one day, one snack, you can get back on track with your next meal and workout. Is there any chance of you putting DD in the pram and going for a walk?
