Week three of Piyo while on vacation. It was tough but not impossible. The old me would have pushed back starting an exercise program until I was home.
Some of you have asked why I am on a weight loss journey so I thought I would share.
My weight loss journey began after the birth of my first son. December 22nd 2011. Like most on their weight loss journey, my pregnancy packed on a few extra pounds. I went from 120 pre-pregnancy to 198 pre-delivery. As you guessed it, I did not have a 78-pound baby. :/ More like 7 lbs. 13 ounces. After about a month of breast-feeding, I was down to about 130 pounds. Those extra 10 pounds stayed with me for years. When I was pregnant with my second son, I decided to not eat junk food, but start exercising and eating right. I only gained 30 pounds my entire pregnancies. After breastfeeding, I was down to 150. Those 20 pounds gained after having both kids and growing older has stuck with me. I have tried diets, exercise plans whatever the latest fads have been. I picked up jogging and swimming but I still LOVE my fast food and a nice cold beer on a summer day.
