8 months post pregnancy. . .

Monday, July 08, 2013

Hi everyone! In honor of Linnea turning 8 months old today, I finally have the cord to hook my phone up which means I can post some updated baby pics!!

All tuckered out from her first camping trip.

She survived her first night sleeping in a tent. (Ignore the boogery nose. She has a bit of a cold.)

Sorry, I can't figure out how to turn this one. She thinks she's pretty big time now that she can pull herself up to stand!

Avocados are NOT her friend!

She loves Stinky.

Other than that, I have no real news to post. 8 months post pregnancy and I still have about 10-12 lbs to lose but it still looks like it's 20. Amazing how important body composition is!!

I’m still trying to walk from to work from the furthest bus stop. I mapped it and it’s a half mile so I’m getting in about 2.5 miles extra a week doing this.

I also took my first workout classes! It was really fun to get back to it. I’m pretty bummed that the Zumba class I thought was offered every Saturday is at best offered every other Saturday. Instead I signed up for a boat load of spin classes. It had been a long time since I’d done spin classes and I remembered it being hard and I remembered right! It was pretty tough in all the right ways! I’m excited to go back on Saturday!!

And, I’m supposed to be doing a 5k with my younger sister on Sunday but I’m really, really, really unprepared for it. As fun as I think it would be, I think the right thing to do is have my older sister do it with her. I wish I could say running is happening but it’s just not. Linnea doesn’t like going for runs with me so it just doesn’t happen. I’ve been out a few times without her but it’s pretty hard with our schedules and not being able to run over lunch anymore. We’re going to be doing some “sleep training” with her this weekend so hopefully I will be able to start working out after I put her to bed starting next week. (That doesn’t sound like it should relate to my working out at night. Without getting into specifics, I’ll just assure you that it does.)

No news on the diet front. I’m still nursing so I’m not really dieting in any form. I should be watching what I eat but I’m not really. No excuses or anything. I’m just simply eating what I want. (Healthy huh???) It’s pretty atrocious.

Anyhow, I’ll end with a pic of both the girls we had done for family picture day. Aren’t they cute?

    Aw, love the updated photos! She's adorable!!
    I know exactly what you mean about the nursing and non-existent diet. I vowed to make it to 6 months (she'll be 6 months on Friday) and I did it. I stopped pumping last Sunday and she'll be using up the frozen supply I have for the next week or two even. So now it's no excuses...time to start eating right and exercising more!

    So I take it she's still waking in the night? Carly is too...sort of. She'll sleep from 9:30ish til 5, eat and go right back to sleep til 8. Sometimes though she'll wake at 3 instead. Ya just never know!
    Sorry, didn't mean to ramble on your blog! Thanks for the update, she's adorable! You're doing great momma!!

    I stumbled across your blog (mutual friend) and have to say she is adorable! I have an 8 month old also - he actually turns 8 months tomorrow - and about 10 pounds left to get back to pre-pregnancy weight. Good luck!!

    I love her expression in that last photo. It sounds like you are at least working in a little more fitness since the last time you posted. Hopefully you can make it work and eventually get back on track with your eating as well.
