Post Baby Update

Howdy friends! I wanted to give everyone an update! Tuesday I had my 6 week check up with my doctor. I had to wait until this appointment to start any type of exercise and…other things! Winking smile Anyway…she said that I was good to go with exercise, but just to listen to my body, which was my exact plan!

I had already researched and decided on using the couch to 5K plan. Click here to see the program I printed. Yep, I printed it! I’m putting it on my fridge and going to check each day off as I complete it!

Wednesday was day 1! I got my (new) running shorts on, grabbed my garmin, buckled Adelyn in our new (to us) jogging stroller, and we were off! Day 1 was a 5 minute power walk warm up and then alternate 60 seconds of jogging and 90 seconds of walking for a total of 20 minutes.DSC00481

I didn’t know what to expect, but I sure didn’t expect my rear to feel like it gained an extra 10 lbs!! Seesh!! I felt like I had a ba-donk-a-donk! I talked to a few other fellow new mama’s and happily found out it gets better! Thank goodness!

I found day 1 to be completely do-able and I’m looking forward to more runs with my baby girl!DSC00486

Speaking of Adelyn, check out what she thought of her first time in the bumbo! That toothless grin melts my heart every time!DSC00478

So the other part of this post baby plan is focusing on my eats as well. I think it would be hard not to with a fridge filled with all these fruits & veggies! Monday I cleaned, chopped, & packaged carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, sweet corn, grapes, cantaloupe, strawberries, pineapple, and watermelon!DSC00476

I’m hoping with adding exercise into my routine it boost the weight loss and help me tone! I hope everyone has a great rest of the week!

Whoop whoop! Gooo mama! Looks like you're off to a great start! I see Adelyn was even tired after your run! ;)

Great work!!! You have a great start and can now build on that. Adelyn will grow up with such a positive athletic example, and that goes a long way.

I just picked back up with my blog, and I'm 5 weeks away from my due date...you give me such hope and inspiration! Kudos to you lil mama!

I'm so happy that you are able to start exercising again. Well done on day 1.
I like how you cut up the veggies to have it ready on hand. Great work

So glad to hear about your progress. You are exactly right, it does get a lot better. The best part is that you have your little girl to light up your day and remind you that it was all worthwhile. This is especially hard for me to remember gaining weight for the 3rd time. Ugh!

OMG how cute is that baby of yours!!

Well done on getting back to your healthy lifestyle now....it takes it out of one's body to have a baby, then to start training again, but so do able with a positive mindset.

Oh Honey! I realize that all women heal differently but you didn't HAVE TO wait 6 weeks for the "other stuff". If your body is telling you it's ready...it's ready. With all 3 of my kids, I don't think I could hold out any longer than 4.5 weeks!!

I've just started the C25K. I haven't strapped on my running shoes since last October!
