So apparently baby weight doesn’t just fall off even if you are breastfeeding. The first two months after Jude was born the weight came off pretty easily. Since then I’ve been stuck at 10lbs over my pre-pregnancy weigh. So I’ve finally decided to get pro-active… like chasing around a 1 year old isn’t active enough.
So here’s my plan. I’m trying to keep it realistic especially while taking care of a precocious toddler.
6 weeks to lose 10lbs.
3x’s a week 30 mins of cardio
3x’s a week target strength training
I hope to document each day’s activities to 1) keep myself accountable 2)encourage others to join me.
I did a little planning walk to see how long it takes me to do a fast walk around the neighborhood. 32 minutes (with a small pit stop to talk to a neighbor and his dog) I will probably be counting fast walks as my cardio since 1) I don’t have a jogging stroller 2) I’m not a big fan of jogging anyway. I hope to get out before Jude’s morning nap then do my strength training during the first 30 min of his nap leaving the next 30 min for getting cleaned up and ready for the day.
The plan starts Monday morning.
