It may have been a little quieter the past few weeks..I feel like things are just starting to settle down with our little guy. The first few weeks with a newborn are really busy. We have been able to get out and take walks with the nice weather; I am REALLY looking forward to spring. We don’t have a great outdoor double stroller – looks like I will be investing in one. (So if you know anyone selling a double Bob or awesome outside double stroller let me know.) Owen has really enjoyed the walks, too. He keeps reminding us about how much he loves summer when “his hands and feet are hot and not cold like with snow.” He likes the snow for about ten minutes and then goes back to talking about summer. It makes me want to sing, “It’s Summer,” from Frozen everytime he brings it up.
So now that things have settled down now it’s time for me to focus on the postpartum weight loss. Yay! Fun! I’m over halfway to losing the baby weight but still have a long way to go. So my goals for the next few months may be more about working out. The whole stage of I’m not pregnant anymore but I can’t wear my favorite jeans is just not fun.
Goals for March:
Finish the four weeks of the Super Shred Diet… I’m on day 6. I’ll let you know my before and after results when I finish and what I think. The smoothie with chocolate chips has definitely been my fave.(and the fact that I can have two cups of coffee – woo hoo!) I haven’t been posting a lot of about it on facebook but I’ll be updating my progress on instagram – you can follow me here. I have several people ask me questions about it and like with any diet and exercise program, check with your dr. to see if it would work for you. The diet does recommend working out for around 40 minutes each day which leads to goal 2….
Complete Alpha of T25. I’m on day 6 and I will admit this is tough. I am mostly doing the modifications because also I don’t want to overdo it just starting out exercise again.
Write things down..Ok, I know this sounds funny but I seriously need to write things down more. Does anyone else feel like this? Like, I’ll think of something I need to do or some great idea let’s say around 10 am…By 3 PM I’m like what was that idea I was thinking of that I needed to write down. It’s all a big hazy cloud and I can’t remember. Some of this probably has something to do with the fact that Mr. H is still not sleeping through the night. (Both of us totally need this t-shirt)
Learn more about Google +. Definitely loved looking through everyone I’m following this week. Just need to make sure I have my profiles up and running like they should be. You can follow me here and here.
And last goal for the month is to order Harrison’s newborn album. I usually order an album every six months but I really want a book of his hospital photos and first weeks at home.
Oh, and this month’s theme for my blog circle is Something you love….just love this little guy. Click here to view Squamish Family Lifestyle Photography Haley Lorraine Photography’s take on this month’s theme.
