I can not believe my oldest has me by about 3 inches already... (HOW DID THAT HAPPEN SO FAST??:)
NOTICE THE PAINFUL EXPRESSION ON MY FACE???
I was wheezing,
laughing at my own slowness,
giving Louis the hand because I could not respond to any of his questions (I was so out of breath)
pushing myself to make it 1/4 of a mile at a slow jog,
trying to catch my breath,
and wondering how on earth I will lose this baby weight if I can barely make it to the corner in my neighborhood (which is not far at all mind you:).
Don't get me wrong, I am thrilled to have the baby weight to lose...Absolutely thrilled!!!
I guess this is what 70 days on bedrest will do to you:)
Honestly, it is kind of strange to me that I am sooooo out of shape. I have been walking the neighborhood the last month and really can walk a few miles with out even huffing and puffing, but increase that to a jog and I am struggling big time...Literally Louis and I almost had a laughing fit when I realized that my arms hurt so badly after trying to move them while jogging for a 1/4 of a mile... it was ridiculous. Then we laughed even more recalling how I am normally the one shouting the encouragement to keep the kids going... the roles were certainly reversed today.
I usually love running in the rain... today was a different story... it was cold and my legs felt like tree trunks... we will see how long it takes for that to improve.
So thankful to have had the reason to be on bedrest... so thankful to God for an able body that will hopefully remember the days, not too long past of exercising:)
