I had plans to hit the treadmill again Jan 1. The c-section was fully healed. I'd lost 30 pounds which contributed to becoming pregnant again with Eli. I want to continue down that road due to my battle with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. I hadn't created a plan outside of the exercise till I read this post at Amy's Humble Musings . It is a twelve week challenge to loose weight. So I jumped on board...it was an answer to my meander toward consistency. Amy is journaling her diet journey on her blog if your interested.
I started exercising Jan 1. My goal is to exercise 6 days a week for 20 minutes a day. I have cut out sugar except in my morning coffee (it's only a tad anyway) and bad carbs. I don't overeat. I do indulge in the odd Tim Horton's apple fritter. It didn't raise my blood sugar even when I had Gestational Diabetes with Eli, so that says something right? They are only 2 points under Weight Watchers...can you tell I am feeling guilty about my fritter addiction. Anyway, one day a week I eat what I want. Last week I didn't go over board because I wasn't craving sugar, though I must admit I am craving a brownie right now. Lucky me....tomorrow is eat what I want day and I just made brownies for company. There will be leftovers!
So far I have lost 7 pounds...one whole pound under by pre-pregnancy weight. I have made the treadmill 11 out of 14 days. It helps that I have a little chub-ster eating several hundred calories out of my body daily.
Anyone what to take the challenge?
