Another week has passed and it's time to weigh in:
So I stayed the same this week, which is OK I guess, better than a gain. Brightside and all.
I had a few slip ups over the weekend mainly due to being busy and not planning well. Even when I ate poorly I tracked it and stayed within my calorie goals for the day, but that dang sodium will get ya.
I finished the Advocare 10 day cleanse - lost 5 pounds. I didn't track my inches because things are shifting and such after baby so I didn't feel it would be a good representation.
I did take before and afters, trying to keep it real around here :)
Honestly who the heck takes bikini photos after giving birth? I am obviously an over-sharer. I just know that sharing how not everyone goes back to flat abs and tiny waists quickly can be helpful to many, because the few that do are in the minority.
I'm back at the gym, not going full tilt just yet but everyday it gets a little easier.
Spin class is great, not a lot of bouncing, but a great way to get my heart rate up.
Step/Turbo Kick is hard, like I'm pretty sure I had an easier time when I had a 39 week belly! I did some light leg work, squats and lunges - unweighted - and could barely walk for 2 days. It's going to take a while to get back to where I was.
|pants are from JCPenny's. Love them!|
I felt freaking amazing after running 3 miles on the dreadmill yesterday. Sure it was an 11/min mile, but I was running and my Gina didn't want to fall off - winning.
I've had a ton of questions about my milk supply while I diet and exercise. I've never had a supply issue so I don't foresee any problems, in fact as long as you are eating well and staying hydrated you shouldn't have any issues. I'm not marathon training or anything crazy! Also you can eat all the veggies you want, it's a myth that it causes gas in the baby. Babies are just gassy because their digestive tracts are developing, usually dairy is the culprit if your having milk issues, not broccoli.
|my lashes are totally fake, no great mascara recommendations :) Sorry!|
Speaking of food I found the most delish cookie recipe! Madison and I spent yesterday afternoon baking them and they are kid and husband approved!
Blueberry Oatmeal Cookies
Cheers to a great week!
