New You 2011

It's a new year....a time for that same old resolution - get healthy and lose weight.  Only this year it's a little different with 7 week old William now in the equation.  My intent is still the same - get healthy and lose weight.  And my first journey to lose baby weight shall begin.

My 2010 resolution was the same and I was on track to meet that by training for my very first triathlon sprint [My Triathlon Training Journey].  I was training about six days a week and although my weight loss wasn't completely significant, I was in excellent shape.  Then, I peed on a stick, saw two pink lines and once morning sickness started, I became more of a couch potato instead.  Cue to about nine months later and 65 pounds later...yes...I'm ashamed to say it was indeed 65 pounds later.  I know William was only 9 lbs, but I keep telling myself that when my water broke, that was the other 56 pounds.  However, if that were true...then why don't my pre-prego pants fit anymore?  Someone must have snuck in my closet and shrunk them all while I was pregnant, I'm sure of it.  HA!

So, needless to say, I have some work to do.  A LOT of work to do and I know it will be exponentially more difficult to get to the gym with William in the mix.  But a change needs to happen for my own health.  I still am motivated and would love to be able to participate in a triathlon sprint this summer.  Even in the dead of winter, it seems so close!!  Adam's on board with me and he wants to do the same.  Hello 2011...a new year and a fresh start!

And, hark, there are more wanna-lose-weight mommy's in the bloggy world for support!  Sippy Cups and Cloth Bums and The Not-So-Secret Confessions of a First Time Mom are hosting a link-up for other mom's trying to lose weight and get into shape for the new year.  You can link-up your weight loss blog posts (or you don't even need to link-up if you don't have a blog) and follow others through their journey and hopefully get some support while you share your journey!

Hi, I'm your newest follower from Mom Blog Monday! I hope you'll stop by and return the follow!

Good luck on your weight loss adventure! I'm also trying to slim down after baby (and a firm believer of those evil little monsters that swapped out our clothes while we were at the hospital giving birth!!!)
