I'm Back!

September 4 - my last blog post.  I was about 12 or 13 weeks pregnant at the time.  That was also about the time I gave up on my quest to lose 60 pounds.  With a baby on the way, that was an impossible goal (for the next 6 months) and weight gain was inevitable.

Baby Boy arrived on February 20, 2013.  A healthy, happy, 8 pound 6 oz. baby.  Avery James Hill.  He's nearly perfect.  I gained about 35-38 pounds this time around.  More than I wanted, but what could I expect when I had given up and stopped caring?  I was SO ready for the pregnancy to be over and to get back to my healthy habits.

Five days post-baby I did my first workout.  It felt AWESOME!  I have continued working out almost daily since then - nothing major, just some treadmill or eliptical stuff, and a few arm and leg moves.  Today, 19 days post-baby, I did the first day of INSANITY.  Wow, it felt great, and not as hard as what I thought it would be!  I guess my body, and probably mind, remember what this is all about and is ready to DO THIS!

Did I mention that I'm already down about 18 pounds?  :-)
