I know. How original can that title get?
But. I have been struggling. Sleep deprivation is something that I can manage but not for 9 months.
And neither can my weight. I am currently holding on to my last 5 "eli" pregnancy pounds. I am so over it. I work out. I eat healthy, most of the time. I preach to my clients about eating right, getting enough sleep, and doing the right amount of exercise.
I never thought I would be in that position where I am struggling to lose pregnancy pounds. Now I can relate to my "mom" clients. In a way its a good thing. Show them what works. Frankly, I really haven't found that magic ticket yet.
With lack of sleep, I am not working out like I did before Eli. I am doing what I can at this point. I am probably not eating enough, considering I try to shovel food in my face while feeding the boys. Which, just doesn't work.
I need to find my time again, my motivation, and possibly get some sleep so my metabolism speeds up again. UGH.
So, to all my fellow moms out there, I understand. The jeans fit but just not the same. Yoga pants feel better because your stinkin' exhausted, and frankly why disappoint yourself trying to fit into those jeans.
I think I just might repeat the mantra, "Sleep through the night, Eli" over and over while doing yoga. Maybe that's the ticket.
