Road to Fitness- Checking In!
When my doctor gave me the go ahead to start exercising after my 6 week check up, I didn't hesitate to get started. I was anxious to get MOVING again! This was my sixth pregancy though! I didn't even know where to BEGIN! I cried out to God asking Him to help me get motivated to get moving again. His answer came in the most unexpected ways!
I was sitting at my lovely Moms group when this mom I didn't know really well boldy stood up and shared her testimony of this dvd exercise program she had started. It was called Prayfit. I decided to order it at Amazon.
It arrived in about four days and I began the video with my kids!
Here I am before starting the video:
And here is my progress so far:
January 5, 2012 Delivery Day! 196 lbs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh my gosh! The biggest I've ever been in my life!!!!!
February 15, 2012 6 week post-partum check-up 174 lbs!!!! Down 22 lbs!!! Just dropping the baby's weight, fluids, and breastfeeding
March 6th, 2012 Started Prayfit
After 3 weeks (around day 21) I began to feel stronger and was getting a little bored with the video, quite honestly. So when my husband invited my son to go along with him running and he refused, I said, "yes". So I began running. You can read my journey here.
I began adding running a mile and a half in between using my ellipitical in addition to keeping up with the Pray fit dvd.
After only 3 weeks I had dropped 6 lbs and was gaining so much energy!
On April 1, 2012 I weighed in at 168.
By the end of April, on April 28th, 2012 I checked in at 163.
At the end of May, on May 27, 2012 I checked in at my lowest weight so far, 158!!! ****
I am pretty well near where I started when I got pregnant with little Super Wy. You can read about his story here
And here I am now! Down 38 lbs!!!!!
My husband and I are working toward doing some sort of physical activity each day, whether it is the PrayFit dvd or going for a run. It is a lot of fun to do this together! By the way, he has also lost about 13 pounds himself!
We give all the praise and glory to God for our health, and our fitness, for the very breath in our lungs!
