Before I got pregnant with Harper, I worked out pretty regularly. Almost everyday. I really enjoy running and taking classes. I love the way my body feels afterward and I also love that I feel like I can eat yummy food! In the may before I got pregnant, I even ran a half marathon (didn't get a great time, but I at least finished!) Even when I got pregnant, I was getting up at 5 and running before work (yay for me!) especially since I am NOT a morning person! Well, I was pretty sick while I was pregnant. I tried to keep running, but getting sick every few strides is kinda discouraging. I would still walk while I was pregnant, but that is not running.
After I had him, I started going to Mommy Bootcamp. I absolutely loved this! I felt very out of shape though. My endurance was definitely not the same after not working out for so long, but going to class 3-4 times a week really got me back in shape. I was fitting into my old jeans! woo hoo! This was great until I went back to work.
In October I started back to teaching. It's only part-time, but 23 kindergarteners are exhausting and coming home to a baby is doubling exhausting. SO needless to say, working out went out the window unfortunately. I have only worked out spuratically since going back to work. Here and there exercise does not change your body back to how you want it to be.
So I tried to make a schedule and train for a 5k. I tried to follow it, but got off track after a few weeks :( Then I signed up for a challenge at the gym. 25 classes in the month of March. I thought I could go at 12, but so far that seems to be right in the middle of naptime. The morning classes are while I am working and the night classes are dinner/bedtime. I'm so frustrated with this. I want to workout and take classes. I definitely want to go back to liking how my clothes fit. It just seems like something keeps coming up. Harper is my first priority. I have to figure out how to make myself a priority too and fit working out into the working/taking care of the baby day.
