Baby John is six weeks old tomorrow, and it is time for me to get back to a fitness routine. I took my measurements, and they are basically the same as they were last time. I've gained some tummy, of course, but I expected I would.
I also did something very silly; I put on a swimsuit (a bikini, even!) and took some pictures. They aren't too bad, I guess. I should say, it is a decent starting point- kind of a weird combination of fit and flab. It will be exciting to take pictures again in a couple of months and see the difference.
I am easing back into a running routine and doing alternative cardio and/or strength training the other days, six days a week. I am logging food at My Fitness Pal but not really restricting calories yet. I'm experimenting with Intermittent Fasting. I will write more about that in another post, but right now I will say that it fits very easily with my natural hunger cues. I like knowing that skipping breakfast and eating a bigger dinner is a legitimate option.
I am also keeping a journal the old fashioned way- in a spiral notebook. I guess I'm just old and stodgy enough that I like writing with pen and paper.
