New Years resolutions are had to stick to but trying to squeeze a Mummy Tummy into my pre pregnancy work clothes is the kick start I needed to get back on track with the fitness regime.
Well the week has past and I am back at work after the Christmas holidays, although as a Mummy there has been no such thing as a lie in and back to work is only part time but it was hard work getting dressed and ready to see clients. Normally my routine is a baby wipe over my face a quick brush of the teeth and if I have time I may brush my hair. However, dealing with clients mean a little bit more effort than dealing with an 11 month old baby and I even wear makeup!!
This morning my son decided to wake me up at 5.30, so considerate making sure I had plenty of time to get ready, I had set out my clothes for the morning – being the super organised person I am – hmmf, what I hadn’t done was tried my clothes on!
I found out that this morning although I am back to my pre pregnancy weight, I am a long way off my pre pregnancy shape!
I was almost in tears, sleep deprevation and the stress of my first client meeting on my own in months and clothe that don’t fit, I literally felt like the world was ending. I did of course get a grip but I felt awful all day, my clothes pinched and my kangaroo pouch had to be hidden with a suit jacket as it billowed over my trousers. I longed for my trackie bottoms
As mortifying as it was, it did inspire me to keep to my fitness regime. I have a few reasons why I want to get in shape and fitting into clothes is pretty high up in fact the reasons are;
- Fitting into clothes
- Being fit enough to run after Baby J
- Looking and feeling good out of clothes (bathing suit- you rude people!)
- General health and well being
Well not fitting into my clothes and not wanting to spend money on bigger clothes means working out and eating better and when I feel like a fat friday I will remember that feeling this morning of being too fat/flabby for my clothes!
