Olympics = Depression?

Did you watch the Olympics? I got caught up in the madness and excitement for a minute and then that crap got depressing! I’m sure that wasn’t the intention but, uh, I had to turn away. Why, you ask? Did you see the bodies on those athletes?! My only option was to turn and catch yet another episode of HGTV’s House Hunters. That show would never openly mock me. Those people only care about open concept floor plans!

I had a baby five weeks ago and while I’m back to normal for the most part…my abs took a hit! (LOLing and crying)They were hit HARD! I’m not sure these suckers will ever be the same. Ok, I know they won’t be the same but somewhere near the neighborhood of the same, across the street, in the same cul-de-sac of the same would be good. Just saying.

I was watching the gymnasts, swimmers and tracks stars and I was all kinds of jealous! Not that I was EVER on their level but it’s nice to think I was or could have been. Now any thoughts or dreams I have of rock hard abs are distant memories.

I am looking forward to getting the green light from my doctor to work out again! I’ll probably struggle with doing a good five minutes of any workout! Maybe I should keep a picture of Lolo Jones posted to keep me focused?

Yeah, I might as well use these Olympian peeps for inspiration.

My ab muscles may be mush but I got some pretty sweet miracles out of the deal. Maybe I could use the little one to do bicep curls? πŸ™‚

    If those athletic bods don’t inspire, nothing will!

    I know how you feel. Looking at all those abs makes me wonder what the *blank* happened to mine. Not that I had them to begin with, but I would like to pretend that I was close.

    Yes, the ab muscles and the muscles on everyone’s thighs just straight depressed me. So much so, that I think I’m going to start running again.

    It’s funny because I would love to have your body (yes even after baby #2 :)! I guess the grass is always greener and that’s why we should never compare ourselves to someone else. And remember the Olympic athletes spend up to eight hours a day sometimes seven days a week training. Which let’s face it . . . is not normal! πŸ™‚

    21 months post baby and I’m still in the ab struggle, but I’ve been in that struggle my entire life. I’ve resorted to letting Jillian Michaels yell at me via DVD in hopes of shedding several inches.

    i’ve been inspired by the athletes for sure…i was looking at Gabby’s arms the other day thinking wow…that’s what hard work can accomplish! One day at a time…

    Yes, I’d love to have abs like that too. Can you imagine the hours of training that go into those bodies though? That part’s not worth it. lol

    You’ll get them back! I know it! Just be patient! My abs still haven’t recovered…10 months later, but I’m working on it.

    Now why did you have to show that pic? Depressing indeed. That’s what I need but I’ll be happy as long I don’t have a protruding pudge.

    I feel ya! I did find it annoying when the commentators kept saying abt the moms how many kids they had or when they gave birth. Why weren’t they talking about dads as frequently too? Just rubbing salt into our wonds! LOL! It definitely is motivational though.
