Alright alright here's the past couple days... (fyi I definitely have a cold now -- boo!)
11/3 : Ray and I ran the lake once (2.6 miles). I was really "hurting" that day. I'm very thankful that we didn't have any extra time to run farther. I always wear an ankle brace on my right foot, well since that day, I now where a brace on my left foot too. Ray said because of all the hills, my ankles could be acting up since I just run flat on the treadmill. Eh, what am I gonna do? Ex-skater injuries will always be a part of my life -- at least the new brace is working great! I know ex-dancers and gymnasts can also have the same issues. Also, my left knee was hurting a bit too. I'm not exactly sure what my pedometer was, but I remember it was over 14k!
11/4: The cold came back - just really awful head congestion. We just ran around all day doing errands. My calves were pretty sore, and my ankle wasn't very happy either. I just focused on my steps -- over 12k! I didn't really eat much -- a cup of coffee & homemade beef stew for dinner (all day). That's when you know I'm sick...no appetite!
11/5: I really felt like crap yesterday. The congestion was crazy. Walking around in a fog isn't fun :( We just ran some more errands. Despite drinking a cup of coffee for breakfast & a grande gingerbread latte, it still felt like I was going to fall asleep at any moment. My pedometer was only 7k -- not surprised. I was in bed at 730pm. blah!

This is my crazy journey to get back in shape and lose the last 11lbs. After being a gestational surrogate & enduring 88 days of bed rest (55 days spent on hospital bed rest at Johns Hopkins), I delivered S & B's healthy "twinkies" on August 6th 2011. Now, it's time to get down to business. Follow me, gripe/moan/whine on my exercise & diet routine to get back down to 125lbs (pre-pregnancy weight). It's definitely going to be a wild ride on the scale! Let's just hope my husband and 3 year old son can handle it!! HAHA!
