I accomplished W1D3 last night, feeling really good once I got home. I'm anxious to step things up a notch when I start W2 tomorrow!

Just thinking it shows you respecting your self and your needs and sets a good example for them... Just sharing a thought, not telling you what to do...
Oh, I totally get what you're saying there! I really do enjoy having that time to myself and it's definitely something I want to hang on to, but I'd also like the option of being able to take him with on occasion. For example, I walk to the store a lot these days when I'm home alone with the baby, and once I get more into this whole jogging thing I wouldn't mind being able to speed things up a bit! I've also made it clear to the hubby that I need a certain amount of "me" time regardless, and I definitely want to set a good example for my son as he gets older. Having a stroller suitable for jogging will give me more options on down the road.

Thanks for the info, that totally makes sense. Weight loss is a major goal of course, but I'm doing my best to push for fitness and strength! If the weight loss has to take a little stall in the meantime, so be it. it's just a number anyway and I mainly want to feel (and look!) better.
