2 weeks out and I'm feeling fabulous. No surprise there since I was so miserably uncomfortable the last six weeks of the pregnancy. Mere hours after giving birth I literally did jumping jacks when asked by Kris how I was feeling.
As of today I'm at 119lbs have 7lbs left to burn. I'm supposed to wait 4 weeks to start a workout routine but I may or may not have started toning my abs yesterday (shhhh, don't tell). I'm going to bend the 4 week rule again and start running this weekend. Breaking out the BOB for more than just a power walk will be amazing. I'm looking for tips and tricks and getting my body toned again. Suggestions are welcome for how to reverse this belly flab and get back on track for running more than a mere mile. I've turned my head to all the workout related pins because September seemed so far away but now I'm wishing I paid more attention. Especially to all those photos of chics with crazy toned abs and arms. I need those pictures on my fridge so that I quit eating icing straight from the jar. Oh, and if anyone can tell me where and what workout clothes to buy I'll hug you. I find a cute workout outfit to be the best motivator.
I haven't had even the slightest case of the baby blues, I'm only up twice each night feeding/changing Teagan so I'm pretty well rested, and I'm the most relaxed I've been in a long time. I told Kris during the pregnancy that Teagan's arrival would equal instant relaxation. He laughed sarcastically. Well I was right so who's laughing now ;) Life has slowed down. Since I'm not working I'm not trying to do a million things between Parker's bedtime and midnight. I have ample time to snuggle with my babes and cook/clean/watch trashy shows/mindlessly surf the web during naps.
I am however going stir crazy being stuck in the house. We've taken Teagan to plenty outdoor places (cider mills, the farm, the park, etc) but not to stores. I NEED TO GET OUT. The walls are closing in on me. I muttered to myself the other day, "I have to get out of this house or I'm going to go bonkers." Parker replied, "I wanna go bonkers." Hate to break it to you but when you chase the dog while yelling "I'm gonna measure you!" I think you're already in bonkers-land.
I wanted to take Teagan out asap and Kris wanted to wait. We struck a deal that 2 weeks we'd exit Teagan from her bubble and two weeks was yesterday! I have a big Target trip planned tomorrow that I'm more excited about than I should be.
Happy new week all!
