So, I am going to be completely honest in this post and admit that I have never really "exercised". In high school I somehow managed to get my chiropractor to write a note that got me out of PE. I know, pathetic. I have always felt blessed to have good genes. Not anymore! After having my third baby, Sophia, a year and a half ago I thought I had the world on a string. I had only gained 17 pounds that pregnancy. I was so excited after I came home from the hospital to see my weigh in. I was surprised to discover that I had only lost 7 pounds. What the hell? My baby weighed 7'6 and doesn't the placenta and water count for something? Basically I came home gaining 6 oz. No biggie, I thought, nursing will make it all go away. NOT TRUE!!! I didn't lose a pound nursing and now six months after stopping to nurse I am still 10 pounds behind. A lot of people say that 10 pounds is not a big deal, but when you are 5'2 it is a huge deal! I am getting payback for the non-use of my body. So I now publicly vow that I will exercise everyday from now on. Whether it is just going on a walk or going for a run I am going to do it.
(I have to note that Seth and I have been glued to the T.V. watching our new favorite Lost and watching all of the "fit" actors has kind of brought this on.)
