It’s been just over a month since my last post. It has been a month of spending far too much time in the gym and too little time at home with my boy. Squeezing in blogging has been near impossible.
But the results speak for themselves. I’ve lost 11lbs since I decided to go healthy. It’s a sacrifice to spend the time losing the weight and getting fit, but once I’m there, it’ll benefit both me and my boy.
I’m looking forward to running around with him in the park this summer. His auntie bought him a ball with characters from Disney’s Cars on it. He walks around the front room practicing picking it up, throwing it and kicking it around. It won’t be long before he’s faster than I am, I’m sure.
Until then, and in preparation for my wedding in June, I’ll carry on doing what I’m doing.
I feel so drained, but in a good way. It’s as if we’ve crammed in a massive amount of activities in a very short space of time. It’s been a long day, but at least I know I’ll sleep well tonight. We took Henry swimming again today – another successful session! Seeing him splashing about all happy and having endless amounts of fun makes it all worth it. He doesn’t even cry when we’re getting him dressed or anything. He just falls asleep after.
We’ve gone and booked our wedding reception too. It’s all very exciting! I love all the planning of it, and thinking about how Henry fits nicely into our plans for the day. He’s going to look so handsome in a miniature suit and little waistcoat… not that it will stay clean for long!
I have also, for the second time this week, managed to make it to the gym! It was my first time back in over a year on Sunday, and then again today. Juggling work, relationships and pregnancy all took over my already bursting schedule. My filofax is well-worn and well-loved. I do really enjoy going for a nice workout though, and a relaxing swim afterwards. It makes me feel a little more human, and it is very much ‘me-time’. I have to make the most of that when I can. Two swims in one day though! I never thought I’d see the day.
It’s unbelievable just how much of a toll neglecting my health a little and the pregnancy/baby has taken on my general fitness. Twice a week though, and I shall see improvements.
Henry will thank me for it, when he’s a little older and wants to run around the park and do all those things that children want to do. I just need to stick to it, like I have with taking Henry swimming, and to his little rhymetime mum and baby sessions.
