well now I have a stomach bug. maybe it will make up for the 3 days i spent trapped in the apartment with a sick 2yo eating whatever I could grab and getting almost no exercise. And, what a waste- I barfed up the most seriously healthy dinner... no ice cream or any indulgences.

 

just kidding. I feel like crap. But, just temporary.

Feel better Emma. (Mint chip ice cream isn't so bad coming up.)

Thank you, Lifeguard. In review, I see there are some BLTs that I could have done better with (bites, licks, tastes.) So I guess I will look at that. I'm headed toward a new "decade" on the scale, which is why I would like to lose at least a fraction of a pound, just to see that change. I have a digital scale that does .2s and I'm at 140.0. For a solid week.

Okay, while I don't think I've actually lost weight (I rarely weigh and don't own a scale), the jeans I bought four weeks PP because my prebaby jeans would zip, but weren't comfy are getting too loose.  My prebaby jeans still don't look right, so while I bought two sizes up, I'll probably have to get a pair or two inbetween the two to go a few months.  I still FEEL bigger.  I think it is that my core muscles are shot, I plan to start working those.  My stomach isn't big, really, it is just doughy.  Hoping to rejoin the Y so I can go after work in the evenings.  I love swimming and need access to an indoor pool before our neighborhood pool opens after memorial day. 

 

We've also joined a CSA so I will be forced to make more veggie based recipes as opposed to carb/meat based.  This is good.

 

I hope you are on the mend, Emma!

A little reminder...Spring is around the corner and we can all plan on just being outside, going for walks and enjoying the warmer weather - we'll also be closer to 6mos PP and ready to work on things.  I say take it easy on yourself....it's a mindset and hard to gear up for.  I am going to be 40yo this year and the weight used to just drop off me and now not so much.  I've also had to relearn how I ate before being preggy and nursing for 1.5yrs with DS where BFing took care of those extra calories.  I eat well so I'm not hungry but I'm used to eating more....I like training my body to this new way of being but it's also taking some getting used to.

Good reminder.

 

Damn nap took up my gym time today. I can't win for losing. Exhausted but workout, rare nap but no gym time. Crappy trade off & I'm feeling pretty down about it, plus the house is a mess. Sigh- I want cake.

Someone today got confused and thought I was pregnant & showing.  Sigh.

 

I'm still kinda sore from the c-section. Is it safe to do ab exercises?
