I put a kibosh on the Motivation Monday meme back during the start of my pregnancy as things got crazy and well...the ability to have motivation to lose weight and get in shape kind of went away. It seemed like my motivation turned to "stay as stress free as possible and healthy for the baby" so I didn't want to say the same thing over and over again every Monday. Plus, participation kind of dropped off...but...
I go for my official post partum visit on Monday, and I'm hoping I get the all clear to start exercising again. Of course, my scar and stomach are still healing so I don't intend to do any squat thrusts or lunges any time soon, but to get back into my speed walking would be nice. I'm totally jealous of T getting to exercise in a race this weekend, and I'd like to eventually get back to that point. I do want to lose a little weight, too. I did find out today at my doctor's appointment that I'm just 3 lbs away from my pre-pregnancy weight, but even before then, I wanted to lose about 10 lbs. So I need to get back to that point.
So I'm back to getting motivated, starting Monday, March 19th! And I hope that all of you will join me again. It's super easy...just write about something that is motivating you that week. It doesn't have to be about exercise or weight...it can be anything! I'd like to get this first post to be a successful one, so be thinking of your posts this week! Come back Monday and comment with a link to your post, and I'll link you up!
Have a great weekend, everyone!
