30 Day Challenge

Hubby and I are starting a 30 day challenge for ourselves.  We are embracing the Paleo lifestyle for the next 30 days.  If it is what people say then we will keep it :).  I have high hopes.

On hold again

It would appear that I pushed a little to much to fast so I am backing off for a couple more weeks until my dr gives me the green light.  I am going to work on my eating.  I will be starting this weekend after I pick up some reading material :).  I think we are going to try to eat paleo for 30 days and see what happens.  I have heard great things about energy levels and such from this method.  We want to eat cleaner anyway this just gives us a push in the right direction.

Pre-pregnancy, 9 months, and after

So this is me.  The day we found out I was pregnant Left so pre-pregnancy size about 157 pounds, size 10 jeans.  Me the day I delivered our beautiful baby girl 39 weeks 2 days 211 pounds Right.  And me at 3 weeks 5 days post partum bottom Right at 190 pounds. It was a long journey to get her here and it won't be an easy road back but I am determined to get back and be better than ever.  Yes some of my weight and stomach may shift in the coming weeks but it still isn't pretty.  Go go weight-loss.

First day back working out

I have to say being back on the workout wagon while tough feels good.  I feel so much better and relaxed after my sweat session :).  Course it kicked my butt and I am seriously out of shape.  Everything feels like a limp noodle now.  But I did it.  I jumped back on the workout wagon.  Here are my beginning stats.  I have to get Chris to check my chest measurement and take a new "before" picture but those will be tonight.
Height 5'4"
Weight 190.8 (down from 197 1 week PP)
Arms 13 (both) flexed
Chest about 44.5"
Belly (measured above the belly button) 43.5"
Hips 47.5 (down from 49 1 week PP)
Thighs 25.5
Body fat % 37.7 according to my scale no idea how accurate it is.  An online site says 53.42% either way its high right now.

Goals and plans

Or should that be plans and goals, either way this is where I am going in 2012.  The reality is nothing is going to really be on the schedule for 2011.  I am going to start the C25K from the beginning again no later than November 7th.  Which is the Monday after my 6 week check up.  I should have the green light by then to start running.  In January I plan to start the Jeff Galloway half marathon training plan.  The goal is to run a 5k in March for and with a dear friend of mine, the Portland Rock and Roll 1/2 Marathon in May, the Seattle to Portland bicycle classic in July and the Nike Woman's Full Marathon in October of 2012.  I will be training for the full marathon with Team in Training since I didn't get to complete my triathlon training.  That should help me to ensure I get the right training and don't get injured.  I am so excited to do that race in October and finish the year strong.  I have at least 30 pounds to lose by April to make weight for the Coast Guard.  After that I hope to lose another 30-40 pounds.  I will be adjusting my ticker to show my current new starting weight.  I will also adjust all my measurements and get a new starting picture after my 6 week post partum check.  No reason to mess with it now since I am only 3 weeks post partum and not cleared to work out yet.  Hubby is going to be working out with me too since he is doing the STP with me in July.  All in all its going to be a fun exciting year full of life changes and accomplishing goals.
