My sweet girl is a month old now and I wanted to share a postpartum update!
I know she’s my child and all, but isn’t she CUUUUTE!! Oh my I love sweet little babies.
Weight loss: 21 pounds down, 14 more to go
Exercise: I started exercising at 2 weeks postpartum and started off slow with 2-3 mile walks. At 3 weeks postpartum I did my first short run (2.25 miles) and am now fitting in 3-4 days a week of a variety of workouts such as walking, P90x yoga and running. At 3 weeks postpartum, I ran 3 miles and I feel ready to push myself past the 3 mile mark so that will be my goal for next week.
Breast or bottle: exclusively breastfeeding- same as I did with my other 3. I have been blessed to have a great supply and flexible schedule therefore have never needed to buy formula. Not a drop! I tell my husband that gives me the right to splurge more in post baby shopping. Totally fair right?
Sleeping: well yes actually. With my mom in town helping I was lucky to sleep in and take naps. Makes those mid-night wakings much more doable. That’s all about to change since mama headed back to Texas a few days ago. Sniff sniff.
Baby schedule: not yet. Too early but she is pretty consistent with a long morning nap and long afternoon nap.
Mood: pretty decent. I remember having way more episodes of the baby blues with the others so I am actually quite shocked given the circumstances. Ask me again in a few weeks and that might change!
I am excited to say I found a half marathon in May that should work with my schedule and another one in June so by then end of February I will start the actually training plan for the one in May. I always use the Hal Higdon training plans so here is the one I will use this time. I am excited to get started!
I totally missed posting Super Bowl recipes but here are some anyway (yes I realize that the game will be over by the time you read this but it never hurts to link up some yummy recipes, right?)
Hope you all have a great, productive week!
