I'm still sitting at 8 lbs. above my pre-pregnancy weight. Breastfeeding makes me so hungry, so I just need to be eating better calories. I haven't bought any more cookie cakes, so that's good at least. 😂
I can fit into some pre-pregnancy clothes, but they don't fit the way I'd like them to. And I definitely need to strengthen/tighten my core. All of the extra fluff seems to have accumulated in my midsection.
I've come to realize that weekday barre classes won't happen until I'm done pumping, so I want to set a schedule to go on Saturdays and Sundays, and work out at home during the week. I have the Barre 3 online membership, but I may try to throw some Blogilates in there too.

I'm quitting Weight Watchers. For now anyways. I do not have time to track everything and am sick of feeling guilty about stuff when I know I'm going over my points, but I'm starving. Yesterday when I decided to quit I actually ate less points that was allotted. LOL
Before pregnancy I read this book about a girl who gave up on all diets and just focused on feeling good and I'm going to do that. I know before hand how I'll feel if I overeat. So, I'm going to focus on putting myself first and helping myself feel better. When I do diets like WW (I know they say it's not a diet, but I believe it is) I'm still focusing on food ALL THE TIME. I want to forget about food and focus on time with Jane, my husband, and fun stuff. I will keep my meal plans up and add more veggies because I feel good when I eat more veggies.
As for exercise. I am loving getting out with Jane and Moose for walks. Except for today. It's pouring. And I don't think it's going to stop until Sunday. So I'll probably skip the 5k on Saturday because I don't want to deal with the rain. However, walking and running are in my future. We're taking the stroller to AZ with us and my Mom and I will walk everyday there in her neighborhood near Flagstaff, it's beautiful there and rural. I'm looking forward to it.
I am interested in trying out blogilates and I want to get back into going to my yoga studio. I miss that. I'll do that when I'm more comfortable leaving Jane for an hour or two with Daniel. I'm comfortable now, I just don't want to miss stuff with her. Honestly, I may never want to. It's hard enough taking her to daycare every week day.
I'm feeling pretty mad at myself for being such a slacker over the last month. I am freaking terrible at Weight Watchers. I go over my points almost daily and I keep telling myself "I'll do better tomorrow" but then I don't. Ugh. I'm also still 12 lbs over pre-pregnancy weight and almost 20 lbs over pre IF-treatment weight, and I'm still wearing maternity jeans at 3mo PP. Yay.
I recently bought a membership to a local place that has mommy and me workout classes - yoga, bootcamp, barre where you can bring your baby. I tried it for the first time a few days ago and got about 10 minutes of working out in - the rest of the class was spent comforting DD and cleaning up after she spit up all over my yoga mat, my workout clothes, and the studio floor At least I wasn't the only one - everyone else there had a little baby too, so almost everyone would take breaks for nursing, comforting, rocking, etc. Quite the scene though, lol. I signed up for some yoga classes this weekend so I can get in some workout time by myself.
Anyone else dealing with diastasis recti? It's bumming me out - I still look 4 months pregnant and when I try to do ab work I can see the weird cone shape in my abs where the separation is. A friend recommended this thing online called the Mutu System that is specifically to help that issue - maybe I will try it.
