I need to figure out how long we walk, in mileage, but ever since I got the stroller, I've been taking almost daily walks with my little guy and I really think it's helping get the weight off. I am just hovering over 160 right now, which is just so exciting! I know in a couple of weeks that needle will drop below 160 and I'll be back to my approximate pre-baby weight.
I got back into one pair of my pre-pregnancy jeans the other day, and I am wearing them today. They're my size 12s, but I am keeping my eye on my size 6s. I'll be back in them by the end of the summer if I do this right. Woot!
Walking with the baby is wonderful. He usually sleeps, but when he's awake I point out interesting things to him. When he's asleep, I take the time to just enjoy the quiet and be alone in my head with my thoughts. It's been so beautiful out that walking is a visual feast of color.
The dancing isn't hurting either. I've decided to devote a few months to Suhaila's method again, so I'm doing two Level 2 classes a week, one dance movement class, and one either Folkloric Fusion or Jamila class -- or one evening devoted to learning or practicing one of her cymbal choreographies. I'm trying to learn El Samer for a show on the 28th of April, and it's not the easiest piece in the world. Like ANY of her choreographies would be considered easy. LOL! But it's definitely good for the body, and it keeps my low back from feeling completely wrecked all the time.
