Christmas Baby and New Year goals

Its been a while since I posted and alot has happened!! I was anxiously waiting the arrival if my baby boy who decided to enter this world 9 days late on Christmas afternoon! My water broke around 2AM and our precious baby boy entered the world at 1:54PM. It was an intense labor full of many ups and downs but in the end it was all worth it to see his beautiful face beside me and my honey crying as his eyes met his son. I would do it all over again! (maybe in a few years if my honey is up to it!! Wink Wink). Although I do like that I can actually breathe better, sleep on my belly and Shave my legs!! The small things in life right?!!

Recovery has been faster than my first delivery and I can say that some of this is definately from being active throughout my pregnancy. Heck, I even ran a little Christmas eve to try and get the baby moving!!!
I have had some back spasms as they stuck me a few times in the back for my epidural. Grrrr. I was planning on going all natural but believe me, it got bad pretty quickly when they started Pitocin on me due to finding meconium in my water. I was contracting every minute without a break, turned the pitocin off within a half hour and I was progressing rapidly on my own. Au naturale....PAAA!!!

I have thought about my New Year goals this year. I have decided to take a step back and really focus on health, clean eating and being fit this year. Just keeping it simple. I will be doing a few sprint tris, Running races, maybe cycling races but all in all I want to just focus on getting in at least 30min to 1 hour daily of exercise. I have been truelly getting burned from the racing scene with people comparing times and how you did. I just want to keep it fun and not care about hitting that mile in 7-8 min or swimmin a 800 in 12 min.. I just want to be happy in the skin Im in and feel good!!
So with that being said, right now goals have shifted to shedding the excess baby weight. (Yes, I gained 40 lbs!! ) clean eating and staying active on a daily basis.

Im going to enjoy all the cuddle time I can with my baby Boy!! Love the baby soft skin and the baby smell!!! Im so in love!!

Happy Training!!
