My little girl is already 9 months old!!! Everyone tells you that the time flies by, but wow- it sure does. It truly is amazing how many things change during this time. Ms.P is growing bigger and stronger, and becoming more and more mobile each day! She loves swimming, and her favorite past time is bouncing in her bouncer chair. Weighing in at a mere 15.5lbs, she burns the calories faster than she can pack on the pounds! Lucky ladyJ
When P was born, I told myself that I would be kind to my body and give myself the 9months it took to gain the almost 45lbs I did, to lose it. Well, 9months is here, and I definitely am not where I thought I would be. I’m suffering from the “postpartum pooch.”
And, like most weight loss battles, the responsibility falls entirely on me. Don’t get me wrong, as I am eating that -ahem, fourth cookie, I am reassuring myself that it is okay because they are lactation cookies. Seriously, if you don’t hear from me again… I may have checked myself into the Betty Crocker clinic!
All kidding aside, I am pledging to all of you that this month is the month that I am going to get my butt in gear. With a birthday around the corner, I am determined to start a new year of life out on the right foot and make exercise and eating better a priority. Thanks to FitPregnancy, here is my new mommy go to workouts.
Between these postpartum workouts (some even with baby) and chasing P around more and more, I hope to kick this pooch in the pooch in no time!
