I think it's been 4 weeks since the unofficial Mamavation graduate campaign started. It's already been quite the rollercoaster ride for me. My weight has fluctuated and it's been a little frustrating for me. After a weekend of being really sick, here is what I weighed in at:
Please ignore the ugly toes and my lack of photography skills.
So my total loss to date is now a whopping 5.6 pounds. I know I should be happy with any amount of loss, but I can't help but be a little disappointed in myself. I have been eating super healthy. One of the issues I have is that because I'm exclusively nursing, I am constantly hungry. And to make sure I am making quality milk for the little guy, I'm eating things that are a little more fatty. (But healthy fats of course.)
Part of the problem is that I'm being lazy and not doing my workouts. I know I need to do them, but I'm majorly lacking in motivation. I feel like I'm letting down my campaign partner too. Why can't I just get it together already?
After last night's softball game, I was feeling a little bit of motivation. My slowness when running the bases made me realize it's not going to happen overnight. I am recovering from having a baby, and even though it seems like I am healed, I think it takes the body a lot longer to really get "back to normal." I just need to keep moving. I'm not going to give up!
I'll be happy if the scale just stays the same this week, although I'd like to keep the momentum going. Two steps forward and one step back is not the way I want to do it. I guess we'll see what happens.
