2 weeks post partum

So much has gone on in the last 2 weeks. Its amazing how a little newborn can change your perspective on everything!! Its been a long time since we had a newborn in the house!! 9 years to be exact!

I have had a mixture of emotions. Happiness, sadness. Feelings of worry. So normal after delivery.

I have been trying to get to know my baby. He is on his own schedule and I need to follow. We have had our moments of crying all day, not sleeping at night. But, we get through it and tomorrow is another day to start all over!!

I have been doing great with the exercise. I am at 30 min of walking briskly at a 3.5 mph pace at a relatively good incline on the treadmill. I even got on the spin bike a few times this week. Trying to go every other day for the next few weeks as I still have some nagging in the back and groin!! I even tried a few minutes of running but I definately can tell you I need a supportive bra to do that at this time!

I have started to incorporate some strength training with resistance bands this week as well to help tone up.

I am down 22 pounds already which is great! I have about 20 to go before Im at my pre pregnancy weight but I can definately tell my body has changed tremendously since birth.

I also signed up for my first "race" of the 2013 season which I am so excited about! Tipp Hill 4 mile run on March 3 2013. That is about 10 weeks out from birth. We will see how I do!!

Happy Training!!
