Week 9: Day Six - 10 lbs lighter

I'm now 10 lbs lighter! WOW. It came off slowly, but there it is! I measured my hips and they are now down to 43 inches, which is 1 inch down from the last time I measured. Amazing what 10 lbs can do. I am feeling good again, things are looking up. I ran 3 miles (4.8 k) on the treadmill yesterday.  I did it in 34 minutes. Not bad! I'd like to pull it down to under 30 minutes. I am finding it very challenging to squeeze in my workouts when I just want to see my son after a long day of work.  He isn't very patient with me when I work out, it's hard to keep him entertained long enough.

I am loving the longer days. It makes it seem as though there is more time to do things. Now I just need the weather to get warmer and I should be able to make working out with my son easier. I have one of those running strollers that someone gave me as a hand-me-down. I'll just have to get used to using it. Anyone have any experience/advice about a running stroller they'd like to share?

Funny enough, I think I am the same weight as I was this time last year, 20 weeks pregnant. It's almost like I'm crisscrossing, watching myself in reverse. I am starting to SLOWLY feel "sexy" again. There was a point where I really felt as though no one would give me a second glance. It's nice to feel that way again. Don't get me wrong, my husband is very good at making me feel sexy, but it really does comes within and follows you throughout your day, doesn't it.
