ran 5 times this week.  pretty good considering i've been battling a cold!  panic attacks are greatly diminished already and i am feeling my strength slowly returning.

it's funny...being postpartum again.  i forgot how after i initially give birth, i hang on to whatever weight is leftover for a few months before i start losing weight.  depressing, but true.  trying to deal mentally and emotionally with that.  i have 15 lbs to lose and although it is the least amount i've ever had to deal with postpartum, it has been the hardest.  i think because i was in such good shape before and i miss not just the thinness of my body but the strength.  i miss running long and hard.

good week

Ran a mile every day except Thursday.  I even managed to do crunches and pilates 3 times this week!

Week 4 for Jess

7/11 - Jackie Warner Xtreme Timesaver Training DVD
7/12 - Ripped in 30 DVD, Level 2
7/14 - Banish Fat, Boost Metabolism DVD

starting up again

Just got back from a mile run.  Ran a mile yesterday too.  My thrush has healed up so my boobs thankfully don't hurt anymore.  However, my panic attacks have been happening a lot more (at least once a day).  So, Jesse and I decided yesterday that I have to run a mile every day and try to nap every day to get under control again...hopefully we'll see results before he leaves for Chicago next Sunday (he'll be gone a week). I'm not looking forward to that.

yoga, take three hundred seven

Hey, at least I keep trying, right? :)

We're on a new schedule here - Josiah changed his nap and Jonathan will be starting a school schedule in a couple of months - between the two my entire routine got shaken up. Generally I don't like drastic changes to my routine (ok, I always, always, always hate them) but this time there was a silver lining: I found a new place to put yoga.

I'm trying out The No OM Zone, which is a hand-me-down from Jess. She didn't like it, but I do! It certainly isn't high intensity (which probably explains why Jess didn't like it). It IS nicely paced, with just enough instruction to be helpful, and no weird spirituality (hence the name).

I'm aiming for 3-4 times a week, starting AFTER our upcoming vbs week. :)
