Trying to reach my bliss point

Had a beautiful baby girl via emergency c-section on 11-25-12. I am back to my pre-pregnancy weight, but it is distributed MUCH differently. I lost muscle and gained fat. My belly is super jiggly and sticks out like I'm still pregnant. Now that I'm recovered from the surgery, I want to get back into shape. I'm going to take it slow, though. The baby doesn't give me much time to exercise, especially since I'm breastfeeding, so I'll be working in what I can here and there.

I'd like to regain some of the muscle I lost and lose the big belly. I've started back at my dance classes and have been walking (though it goes slower with a stroller to push -- my back can't handle carrying her for long b/c she's already heavy!). Hopefully, she'll be willing/able to entertain herself for longer periods of time soon, once she is able to grab and hold toys and sit up more. Then, I'll be able to work in more dance practice and maybe even an exercise video now and again.

SparkPoints: 36,770

Fitness Minutes: 33,861

My Goals:
To gain back the muscle I lost during pregnancy & after baby was born, especially to firm up the jiggly post-C-section belly.

To get back to the weight I was 4 years ago before I started my desk job -- 116 lbs.

My Program:
Mon: Belly dance class w/Tamra-henna

Wed: walk with Joni


Walk 10-20 minutes at least 1X/week during work breaks.

Any dance practice I can fit in.

Personal Information:
I'm an Economist at my "real job." Have my own business making and selling polymer clay jewelry and crafts and also gourd art and instruments. I'm doing more with the gourds lately.

I am active in a few local craft guilds. I also belly dance.

Seems like I've always got something going on! Sometimes I forget to include exercise in there.

thanks so much for the comment. I actually have been entering my food into the nutrition tracker. I didn't really do that before. And so far I'm doing pretty well with my eating.

Hells yeah--prog rock is great! I do like Dream Theater, but I actually prefer Liquid Tension Experiment. They're like Dream Theater without a singer, plus the bassist of King Crimson.
