"He did it."
Bad news. I'm almost back up to my pre-pregnancy weight. I know, for most people this is a good thing, but not me. I wasn't at my highest when I got pregnant with the boys, but I wasn't that far off. Because I had no cravings for fried, salty or sweet food while I was pregnant, I ate for the sake of eating. I gained about 25 lbs total and at birth lost about 45. I admit some of that was blood loss and came back fairly quickly. But the rest, well, I've put it back on over the last year by eating stuff I shouldn't far too often. I made sure I kept little to no junk at home, but there were lots of outings with other mommies that included coffee shops and sweets.
Now that I'm back at work, I'm hoping to start to get back on track. Of course, my office is right next to the kitchen which doesn't help. I smell food wafting out every time someone opens the door. Along with the vending machine, I work downtown and everything is close by. Sigh. Will power it is. My first week back, I know I ate non-stop. It was all nerves and stress from leaving the boys. I've got that a bit better under control.
But, I'm exercising less now that I'm working. Yeah, there is the work walk, but I used to walk so much more every day, and that was pushing a stroller with fairly hefty twins in it, add the lifting and playing and I was getting a pretty good workout. I will have to break out the wii fit to play in the evening when the boys are sleeping. Sigh.
I'll keep you posted on how it goes.
