Hi Bloggy friends, baby is born and 5 days old. We have a lovely daughter Harper Danielle. Born 4/19 at 6:06 pm, 6 lbs 15 oz, 20 inches long. You can read the birth story on my baby blog if you are interested.
I love being her mom, she is super funny and easy going and I look very forward to the next 12 weeks (at least) that we get to spend together. Feeding her is definitely a full time job and nothing prepares you for the amount of time it takes you to feed a baby, especially if you decide to breast feed, think 8-10 hours a day doing something boob related. But it's worth it, she's the best.
Today I started on my long road back to pre baby body. I am left with a spare tire around my belly and giant thunder thighs. No worries, just the facts. I circled today on the calendar, had some reeses cups last night and today start my better eating plan. No more junk, its off limits. I can't do much excercise for awhile obviously. Today we took a 1 mile walk. It was a teeny bit tiring, not too bad. When I got home my abs ached a little bit. I am going to focus on walking and lifting light weights for the next few weeks. I'm not supposed to run until my 6 week checkup. I doubt I'll wait quite that long, but can see myself waiting at least a month before I even attempt a run/walk. It's amazing how deflated your entire center feels.
