Postpartum Weight Loss Workouts: Week 4

Postpartum Weight Loss Workouts: Week 4…Sticking to a diet and exercise routine is extremely difficult, especially when temptation is constant and fatigue is heavy. The diet itself is easy, you just eat particular food. The workouts are challenging but they should at least be somewhat fun, and the endorphins should make you feel good. So it’s not the dieting or the workouts that make weight loss hard. It’s doing it long enough to see results that’s the tricky part…

Postpartum Weight Loss Workouts: Week 3

Postpartum Weight Loss Workouts…It’s now week 3 of our postpartum weight loss plan and I thought it was time to talk about progress, or rather lack thereof. 

Even the most strict and dedicated person sticking to the plan perfectly isn’t going to lose weight every single week. Sometimes you’re up, hopefully more times you’re down, and quite often you’re exactly the same on the scale. We all know that our weight is a really poor indicator of how well we are truly doing, but it’s what we use nevertheless…

Postpartum Weight Loss Workouts: Week 2

Postpartum Weight Loss Workouts Week 2…We are starting week two of the postpartum diet and exercise routine, are you sick of the food yet?! I certainly am even though it’s all good healthy food. But nobody said it’d be easy, right? I’ve always liked the expression, “eat how you’ve always eaten and you’ll look how you’ve always looked.” I ate moderately during the pregnancy but I definitely did not say no to anything, so this restriction takes some adjustment for me, too…

Second Pregnancy Bump (and Labor) Comparison…Ahh pregnancy weeks 37 and beyond, a full term baby bump!  I had to wait to do this final post because I needed to know how long my little guy would be staying before I could finish the first and second pregnancy bump comparisons, and boy did he surprise us…

Batman, Gotham City, New York Theme Nursery for our New Baby Boy

Batman, Gotham City, New York Theme Nursery for our New Baby Boy…The baby may not be here yet (any day now, I’m 40 weeks and 2 days), but his Gotham City Batman nursery is ready and waiting!  When we found out we were having a boy and were discussing how to decorate the nursery, I said I wanted a New York City theme while my husband said Batman. The compromise was easy: Gotham City…

Turquoise Baby Sprinkle for Baby #2 (x 2!)

Turquoise Baby Sprinkle for Baby #2…When you have a second baby, you don’t have a Baby Shower but rather a Baby Sprinkle. You already have so much from Baby #1, you only need to be sprinkled with gifts rather than showered with gifts. Cute, right?  I have friends who live in two different parts of the country, so I actually had two baby sprinkles for Baby #2!  One was thrown by my loving husband at our house and the other by my two lovely girlfriends at the local community centre!  So much fun…
