Time to pull on my 25 cent walking shoes, that is! Remember the embarassing thunder thigh episode, in which I vowed to throw away my stretchy pants at six weeks postpartum? Tomorrow is the day. I'm really excited! I can feel a commitment to my body I've never had before. I guess motherhood has matured me; past attempts at dieting seem half-hearted in comparison. Two online motivators deserve the credit--Barbara at Mommylife's five month transformation and The Incredible Shrinking Mom's challenge to Diet Naked. In this case, with online accountability. I'll be updating here as I get fit, with a frugal twist. Hopefully new socks (and skinny clothes!) will be my only investment!
In retrospect, I can see that the root canal was a blessing in disguise. It forced me to leave the baby for over four hours--a feat that took me a year with our first child! Now, an hour in the Y's nursery won't be nearly as traumatic. At least, I'll be praying it won't!
