How do you get going again after pregnancy?
anj - great that all is well. my cousin had a baby in the early hours of tuesday morning - so my FB is full of pics of little babies at the moment, and it's lovely.
camlo - i don't feel good about myself, i don't sleep well, i hate seeing myself in the mirror and i only post photos on FB that don't make me look hideous!! the one in chessington was a complete fluke i think. taken from a distance - that always helps!
i don't think i could swim more than a couple of lengths using only my arms, TT! that would be way too much like hard work. at hte moment i'm not risking doing any exercise as i still can't walk without being in pain. i can't risk tearing it any further as i think it may completely rupture.
i find it harder to lose weight when i exercise because i feel like i need the fuel for exercise and i also want to reward myself for having exercised. easier to 'punish' yourself with hunger when you are doing no exercise. so my most successful weight loss has been when i haven't exercised and added in exercise calories. i do want to lose about 20lb, which just seems such a phenomenally hideous amount of weight. god knows if i will manage it. at the moment, i hate everything about me so much that it's clouding every judgement, i know.
kids are with T this weekend, so the only thing i have to look forward to is cleaning, food shopping and making birthday cake for E's party at a soft play place on sun afternoon. i'm going to that but not looking forward to it as T's mum will be there and i find being around her very difficult. i am also struggling a bit with the fact that it's a year since i was last in touch with my parents. i think that is playing on my mind more than i thought it would. T's mum will be at the party and my parents should be around celebrating her birthday with us too - but they won't be obviously.
Glorious morning here. We survived the sleepover but it was a bit crazy with11 kids in the house. Tea was frantic but once I got it done I sneaked out and left hubby to finish clearing up while I did 4 miles. haha. Our other kids settled down about 9.30 but the boys had the living room and it was after 1am before they all settled. Hubby and I were yawning in the kitchen desperate to go to bed.
Got to do it all over again tonight mind you as Sophie has 3 friends staying over but I'm not expecting them to be so rowdy as the boys! Hubby is away for the next two nights so they better not be!
Got a lie in mind you, only got up after 7. Long run later.
Happy weekend everyone.
