i am super dumpy lately and i wish the state of y body didn't bother me so much, but it does.
i am generally a fitness buff, and was in GREAT shape when i got pregnant at 32 with first baby. gained 55 lbs, lost 30 of it within 2 weeks of birth. exercised and was able to lose about 1 lb a week until i finally got those 25 lbs. off.
gained exactly the same 55 lbs. with pregnancy #2, and again lost nearly 30 lbs. within a few weeks of giving birth. been exercising for almost 2 years now, really stepped it up in the last few months as well, and here i sit with 15 extra lbs. actually i was down to only 8 extra, but i have gained 7lbs with my new workout routine. i know the scale is not the ultimate measurement, but dang!
probably the most difficult is getting dressed. i feel like nothing fits properly or looks nice.
i am working hard at this and its so frustrating.
my current routine:
i do 25 minutes of yoga, then run on a treadmill (or occasionally do elliptical) for 25 minutes (2.5 miles), then do weight machines (switching up daily) for another 30 minutes, 4 days a week.
i do have a life outside of my body/exercise issues, just feeling like i need to vent.
