I go back and forth with how I feel about my post-pregnancy body. Some days I feel pretty good that I am only a few pounds above my pre-pregnancy weight. Other days I feel like this pudgy muffin top has taken up permanent residence and I should just resign myself to a life of loose, flowy tops.
A little over a month ago, I finally started exercising again and I was getting into a good routine. I was feeling good and thought I was starting to see some improvement. Then I went back to work and it's all gone to hell. It's hard to find the time or energy to workout during the week (and I am fully aware that if I exercised I would have more energy). I managed to get up once to exercise before work. I even bought a Jullian Michaels DVD because the workouts are only 24 minutes. It's hard to make excuses when it's only 24 minutes and yet I still make them. I am managing to go to Stroller Strides on Saturdays at least. I get to take the babies and they usually sleep so I do actually get a workout.
Today was one of those days where I don't really care about the pudge or even think its possible to get back in shape. Then when I was walking back to my office from lunch I saw Angelina Jolie. For some reason, it hit me right as I saw her that she had twins.
It is possible.
I'm back to being motivated. 40 is just a few months away and I would like to go into it feeling good about myself. I would like to fit into all of my old clothes again. I can do this!
