Baby steps

Not Lily’s yet but mine trying to get back into shape and getting a daily morning exercise routine going.

I told Will yesterday that I would like to start going for morning power walks like I used to before and during my pregnancy.

So this morning, as he got up with Lily like he usually does, he kicked my butt out of bed. You see, I wanted to stay in bed for another hour sleeping.

I put on my walking clothes and sneakers, grabbed the 3.25lb weights for each hand and headed out the door.

OUCH! It hurt. Everything hurt. My legs, my back, my arms. Whose idea was it to bring the weights? Oh wait, it was mine.

As I walked across the bridge and was surrounded by water, little sail boats and other morning walkers, joggers and bikers, I started to feel pretty good.

This isn’t so bad, I thought.

Then, half way through my walk, I just wanted to drop the weights down anywhere, turn around and go back to bed. It was like the bed was calling me.

It was hard to keep going but I just kept thinking: bikini days are coming, bikini days are coming, bikini days are coming….

I walked my old route and got back home exhausted and all sweaty but feeling good about having done it.

Now let’s see how long I will keep it up. 😉

Here I am after my 1 hour power walk this morning.
