day 1 week 1.

I decided yesterday, that the perfect night of sleep is not in my near future.  I decided yesterday, that having 4 more months of nursing doesn't mean I can't work out intentionally.  I decided yesterday, that if I could complete the workout circuit with 2 hours of sleep, a swollen knee, and very sun burned thighs....that I have no reason not to complete it every day for the next month. And the month after that. And so on.

And so I began.  Starting weight is 170.  Starting measurements...40. everywhere. I am a tube.  It's very odd to know that my waist is bigger than my husbands. 

I slept like a rock last night!  Sure I had little ones waking me, as I have for the last year.  But, I didn't struggle to find sleep at all.  I dripped sweat last night. It was pretty gross.  I was also 99% sure that I was going to pass out at any moment.  I wasn't able to squat as far as I could a year ago, but this body isn't the body it was then.  I'm not seeking perfection.  I'm seeking healthy.  I want to be able to run with my kids in the park for more than 10 seconds. My twins will be running this winter...and I'd better be ready for it.  My goal is to work out 5 days a week with this program.  I will measure every week and update here.  I'm not able to do the nutrition plan for this program, because I'm nursing two babies, and therefore need to consume a crazy amount of calories, but I will be breaking up with soda and adding more fresh produce to the mix. 

Now, if someone could carry me down the stairs...I'd really appreciate it ;)

That is awesome that you are working out!!! Even more awesome that you are nursing two babies!!!! Good luck with working out. I know even just a little will help. My husband and I started the c25k program last weeks. Even just that little bit has helped me feel so much better.
