Since Emmie wowed you all yesterday with her awesomeness be prepared to be underwhelmed by her mama haha. If you’re new to these updates check out my post-baby weight-loss journey:
By the pictures …. Here I am at 7 months:
And here I am today:
I am really happy with where I am at but good God these pictures are awful haha. I have reached my pre-pregnancy size and measurements. My goals at this point are purely for myself. I would love to drop a few more pounds and definitely work more on my abs. I still feel a bit “pooched” which is the name of the game for a mama but some added planks never hurt anyone l)
This is the department I can certainly do better in. With traveling to Disney I ate whatever I wanted. While I tried to make healthy choices I also indulged quite a bit. It really set me back. I also have been fighting a bit of a sweet tooth which is really unlike me. I never really liked sweets until I got pregnant and now I do. It’s so weird. SO my goal for this next month is to clean things up in the eating department and get back on track.
This is one area that is going really well for me. Em and I have gotten into a routine of going to the gym right after breakfast in the morning. I do cardio and lift weights and she plays with the other kids in the nursery. I am trying to one of more and build muscle with weights. I am still going to a boot camp class and got back into yoga classes this week which felt amazing! I don’t have any races on the calendar until October so I am just trying to keep my mileage up a little bit for stability. I also am looking to start playing tennis once a week with a local women’s league
I just want to thank you guys for sticking with me on this journey and humoring me with these posts. While I don’t expect to see a lot of changes in my measurements I still want to keep up with these updates until a year as an acceptability tool for myself. I am really proud of what I have accomplished in 8 short months and the support of my family, friends, and all of you has been immeasurable SO thank you!
AND because no post is complete without some Em in it … here she is at lunch yesterday. She has officially figured out how to feed Bailey and Bails couldn’t be happier.
