Workout Update!

So, apparently, its been a month since I began my Chalean Extreme Round 2 - Regain Pre-Pregnancy Body.

I wish I had amazing news to report, but alas, I don't. I haven't been very faithful in my workouts for a variety of reasons (B went out of town and left me alone with the kids...ahh! We had company for a week, etc, etc...) but I have done somewhat better with my eating. Not A LOT better. But somewhat.

In the last month, I have lost 5.2 lbs and 2.5 inches. Fortunately, those inches came from my hips and rear end! Unfortunately, they didn't come from my waist. I am beginning to think I may NEVER fit back in my old jeans.

I do plan to do better with my workouts because I know that history DOES indeed repeat itself. I know that muscle burns fat, so to burn fat, I need to build muscle. Bring on the big weights!

The tricky part is working around the baby's evening schedule. He eats right around the time I put the big kids to bed. Then he is awake and alert while I work out. This often leads to him getting bored staring at me from the bouncy seat. I guess watching me huff and puff while doing slow weight repetitions just must not be that exciting for a baby :-)

But have no fear, I can still do it all (sort of)! As soon as I flip off the workout DVD, I am back in mom-mode. Tonight my arms, chest, and legs were still shaking from the workout when B handed me our fussy baby. Little N immediately settled down in my arms even though I felt like a sweaty pig. He didn't seem to mind. He just wanted his mama to rock him. So sweet.
More updates to come! I hope I have even more success next month!
