Finding the c-section balance...

Monday, July 02, 2012

I'm now 3 weeks post c-section. I healed quickly after my first baby and seem to have done the same with my second...this weekend I was moving /exercising a lot...well, a lot compared to my last 4 months of pregnancy.

I walked a lot, played the Kinect, just danced and went I'm pretty darn sore...I may have overdone it. I'm struggling with finding the balance between getting in exercise and letting my body fully heal.

I really want to keep up the exercise, but am frustrated by the inability to do as much as I want. I'm afraid if I use this time to "rest and heal" like everyone says I will get complacent again. And when that happens...those 50 pounds that are gone will come right back. Ugh.

Why does this have to be so hard? emoticon

    Hey, crazy lady! I know you're feeling anxious about working out, but seriously, you could split your internal incision or get a hernia!

    Gentle. Walking.

    Give your body time to heal. It just grew a person!

    Why don't you focus on really addressing any eating issues you have - sorting out the emotional eating, replacing the junk w/ cleaner stuff, getting into the habit of tracking your calories, trying healthy snacks, etc.

    Get FIERCE about your nutrition. And these three weeks will fly.
