So I’m back to my pre-pregnancy baby weight. I know I will never have my pre-baby body back completely, but that doesn’t mean that I can’t work on getting this post-baby jiggly wiggly belly goo to go away. I have been good about daily workouts but lately I have also been implementing early morning runs with H. I figure since he’s not sleeping well at all and typically wakes up wayyyyy too early for my liking I might as well make the most of our early mornings.
I freaking hate running. Every single step I take my brains moving a mile a minute saying ‘i hate this i hate this i hate this this sucks this sucks ew ew ow ow ugh i hate this‘ but believe it or not once in my life I actually liked running, I actually think I loved it. I was on the cross country and track teams and I felt that runners high you hear about. My goal is to get that feeling back somehow and I’m pretty sure the only way to get even remotely near that goal is to…ugh…run.
I’m digging deep to find that motivation and honestly sometimes the only way I’m able to get myself out the door is reminding myself how cute H is bundled in the stroller and how sweet his little noises are as we run around. But question – how do you motivate yourselves? Because sometimes not even sweet baby H is enough motivation to get me moving. Any and all advice is gladly, happily welcome.
