Follow through Friday - Pre Baby Weight!

Posting almost a week late, whoops

I hit my pre-baby (#2) weight! I still have a ways to go before I hit my ultimate goal, or even before I hit my pre-baby #1 weight, but it’s nice to see progress! I actually started strength training this week! I did 2 rounds of my Shoulders/Back circuit (see below for description on all my circuits) on Tuesday and then did my Chest Circuit, 2x, on Thursday. I went back and read through my workouts from last year and I was supposed to do 2 rounds of 2 different circuits each time I did strength training, which I intend to do next week. This was a good start for me though; my chest is a little sore today, which is a sign of a good workout. I also have difficulty doing jumping jacks as my one knee was hurting, so I’m going to try to substitute that out for something else next week. The “bodyweight step up” in the should/back circuit was previously mountain climbers but the toes on my left foot were hurting when I did those so I changed that out as well. My right foot has been hurting too, although oddly enough, not when I run, just when I’m wearing no shoes or less supportive shoes. I have an appointment on Monday to get that checked out and plan to have them check out my left foot too. I really hope I’m not told to stop running; that would be such a bummer.

Food wise, I did pretty good overall all week. A little cheating on the weekend but nothing too serious (obviously since I lost a pound this week). This weekend is going to be killer with so many plans. We have a community Easter Egg Hunt and Potluck on Saturday followed by a BBQ at our neighbors on Saturday night (which means probably a lot of drinking) and then we will be gone all day on Easter for a yummy Easter dinner. I know my sister in law is making some Cauliflower “mashed potatoes” in addition to her regular mashed potatoes so I’m going to at least try to sub those out.
