Thoughts on Post Partum

Well, I am almost 6 weeks from delivery and decided "close enough" and headed out to pound the pavement today.  I have less than 2 months to fit back into some clothes for work and exactly 3 months till the half marathon.  I will admit it now, I think I was a WEE bit ambitious on all that.   But I will give it a shot.

A few of my observations from today.  First....the good stuff/
1) I still like to run.  I enjoyed it.  And it felt good....until I felt like I would die!
2) Eminem's 'Til I Collapse' can still make me not want to give up.  Maybe I should just make that my entire playlist!!
3) I will say it again. I didn't die!!

Now onto the bad:
1) I really almost died. LOL.  I kid.  I could run for about 1.5 miles and then had to walk.  And walk some more.  It was a bit of a reality check but it is sill more than I could do when I first started running less than 2 years ago.
2) I need new ear buds.  They kept coming out.  It was SUPER distracting.
3) My playlist is SEVERELY outdated.  Anyone have any good suggestions??
4) I am SORE!!

I gained almost 50lbs with Luke.  But I did love every minute of it.  He was truly a joy to carry.  I lost almost 30 of it so far but now the hard work comes in.  It is depressing to get on the scale and try and fit into clothes, but I know these things take time.  And I also know moving helps a lot.  As does stop stopping by Sonic for ice cream once a week and McDonalds for breakfast once a week.  Oh to be a celebrity and have a personal trainer and cook!!

So here we go again, time to get busy.  I will do my best to get some of this weight off soon!!  Hoping I can keep up the momentum and make some progress!

And here are just a few pics of my sweet boys!!
