Really back this time...with a new baby!!!
Wednesday, February 22, 2012
So I pretty much went into hibernation mode during my pregnancy. Once I started my classes last August, I just couldn't juggle everything. So sorry, & I missed everyone who's befriended & encouraged me since I restarted Sparkpeople last year!
But the baby is here! & classes are done! & I'm now a busy, tired mommy of a toddler & a newborn. Phew!
I'm approaching the 6-week mark since having the baby, which hopefully means I'll get the all-clear to return to normal. Unfortunately, after the baby was born (which was a long, drawn-out, excruciating process), it turns out some of my internal organs prolapsed. Oops. So I've been resting & taking it easy the last several weeks. What does that mean? No heavy lifting (sorry, T-bug, Mommy can't pick you up) & lots of reclining with my feet up...& just having my feet up in general. & Kegels...lots of Kegels. Can I just say right now that I've been bored out of my skull??? & lamenting my inability to start tackling my chunky, thunky thighs.
Fortunately, I'm not too much heavier than I was when I got pregnant, so I didn't undo all of my progress. Yay! & hopefully I'll be able to join the next round of the BLC (Ladies, send me info, plz???). Just another week or 2, hopefully, & I'll be shooting for 45 mins of exercise 6 days a week. & in the next couple of days, I'll start tracking my food again. (BTW, I've been eating a lot of crap the past week or so, so I'm dreading weighing myself to update my weight here. Yipes!)
So check my page to see a pic of my beautiful new daughter (we call her NBG). She sure is a cutie! Her big sister adores her, too. & shoot me a message! I'll try to catch up with everyone, but obviously, I'm pretty out of the loop...so help me out!
It's good to be back. :-) Can't wait to start seeing my scale go down again!!!!
