Alright ladies lets talk postpartum! I’m now 9 weeks postpartum and honestly can’t believe that many weeks have gone by already! Needless to say were still in a bit of the newborn fog but hopefully in the next couple months things will be on the up. Today’s post i’ll just focus on my postpartum progress and i’ll do a separate post with a baby Luca update and life with two kiddos next week….
So here we go…
WORKING OUT: Today at 9 Weeks postpartum was the first time I actually did cardio (because lets be honest catching up on sleep has been my 1st priority lately). I have a treadmill in the garage and used it during nap time for about 30 minutes. I haven’t worked out in months so i’m starting out slow. I had previously put my gym membership on hold but and ready to get back there once I can be away from Luca for longer stretches of time. So for now i’m just doing what I can, where I can.
I have a small window during the day when my husband is home to get to the gym for an hour a couple times a week so i’m really hoping to be able to do that soon. They do have child care at my gym (and I used to bring Ava with me after she was a year old) but Luca’s way too little for me to bring him there right now. I’ll continue to post snapshots of my workout on my Twitter account (because its so much faster and easier to do) for those of you who asked what i’m doing.
EATING: To be honest my eating has kind of been all over the place! I am usually pretty disciplined when it comes to eating but i’ve been indulging probably a little more than I should 😉 I think i’ve been taking advantage of all those breast feeding burning calories lately. I’ve started taking pics to do my Honeybee Health posts again to show you snap shots of my meals for those of you who have been requesting it. I will do a full “Day In Meals” post early next week and i’ve already posted a couple of my meal posts on my instagram account this past week.
After I had Ava it took about 4 months to really get back into the swing of things with working out more consistently and it wasn’t until around 7 months postpartum that I really started to feel like my “old self”. Now juggling two kiddos I know it will be a little bit more of a challenge but I just have to be better with my time management. I’m anxious to get back in pre baby shape and know it will take some time but we’ll get there! Hope this helps and if you have any other things you want me to cover in my next post feel free to ask below!
