A good day!

This is me. Sweaty, happy and so thankful after a walk/jog with Ella in the stroller. (Alice is still too little to double them up in the double jogger.)

I decided to take E for a walk for some alone time with my big girl and since I was feeling so good, I felt like testing it out to see how I felt to get my heart rate up a bit. Grabbed my biggest pair of shorts, biggest shirt, doubled up on the sports bras and went for it.

Felt great. So I decided to jog a bit. Felt fine. Didn't push it at all. Just enjoyed moving....very slowly....behind the jogging stroller talking with Ella and working up a lather. Awesome. 25 minutes of moving without the watermelon under my shirt felt amazing.

I have some soreness (duh, of course) but nothing terrible. It feels more like my bones are sore as opposed to muscles.

Hey, I have that shirt! Does that mean you got to exercise today?

Yes, I look like a geek wearing my IM hat and shirt together, but my wardrobe choices are SEVERELY limited trying to conceal my still 5 month pregnant looking belly. My IM shirt is HUGE, which works for me.

But, yahoo, anyway! :)

I sure hope that I feel as good as you do just a few days after giving birth! My goodness! that must feel great!
