I'm back....

Well it's been about a year. Lots to fill you in on. Since my last post, I got pregnant (with the help of fertility drugs), had a beautiful baby girl at the end of March, started WW again and am back to working on myself again. Sorry for the long break. The hubs got a job after a long six months of being unemployed. I was very sick the first half of my pregnancy and worked lots and lots of extra hours the second half. I had a wonderful delivery, a 12 week maternity leave that ended this week and need your help to keep me motivated and accountable for getting back on track to good health. I rejoined WW 4 weeks after I had the baby. That was too early. I wasn't ready to take care of myself. I think I floated through the first two months in survival mode. Taking care of a crabby baby and a three year old was harder to manage than I thought. Thankfully the last month has been better. I have lost about 10 lbs, started exersizing again and have much more of a handle on things. The babes is much less crabby and the three year old is adjusting well too. I am not super excited to be back at work, but I guess it will be good to use my brain again. I have started training for a triathlon. It is at the end of august. I haven't signed up yet, but I am getting close. I have been back in the pool swimming laps, bought a used bike from a friend, and am still enjoying running. I can't believe how much I missed the pool. It's been years since I swam, but it's kind of like riding a bike. It all comes back to you. Flip turns were a little rough at first. My lung capacity isn't what it used to be!! I have this cool app on my phone that tracks my miles, speed and has a gps that I am loving for running and biking. Most of all I enjoy the "ME" time I get when I work out. The last couple weeks have been a bit of a struggle in the food department I will admit. Last night I read through all my prior blog posts and remembered how much it helped me to keep up with this, so I decided to start it back up again. I don't have my own personal computer right now so you will have to bare with me if I don't post every day. I hope that you can help keep me motivated.

Welcome back me!
