I'm baaaaack

At work that is. (And hopefully back to the bloggin'.) I'm craving a routine and a sense or normalcy, so this week is a trial run for all that. Being that I can make my own work schedule if I so choose, I am going to be working today, Tuesday and Thursday. Wednesday I'm showing the kid off down at my mom's office. Friday... well, I'm not leaving the house or sharing Tucker with anyone. It'll be my last real full day of leave and we will be snuggling on the couch all damn day.

So... how things have been going. Lets get a quick run down.

- Tucker - Gaining weight like a freakin champ. Took him to the doctor on the 2nd and he weighed 6lbs 11 oz. Weighed him last Friday at a breastfeeding support group... 7lbs 14oz. A whole pound and then some in 8 days! Granted, he had had some formula, but still. Hopefully we can get him off of that.

- Breastfeeding - Well, Tucker and I suck at nursing. Babies that are born early have a harder time with it because it wears them out. We've resorted to pumping and bottle feeding until we can get into the groove. Our highs and lows of breastfeeding deserve a post all to itself. 

- My Bod - So, I think my final weight gain was 50lbs. Never. Again. Next pregnancy I'm going to hope and pray I don't have to deal with a previa  so I'm not terrified to move and I can still work out some without fear. Saturday I tried on some pre-pregnancy jeans that were getting big on me right before I got pregnant. Those things didn't have  prayer. Yes, I know I just had a baby 5 weeks ago. I was just praying for a miracle. So, I immediately started LoseIt. Saturday went well. I resumed the Sunday Cheat Day and I will work on my eating throughout the week. The goal is go get my eating under control, then ease my way back into working out. I'm treading lightly because breastfeeding is really important to me and I don't want to jack that up. I can't wait to spend some time with Jillian though. Did I just say that?

That's pretty much where I'm at right now. I'm so glad to be getting back into the swing of things!

And now here is some sweetness for your Monday morning. Some after bath smiles :)


  1. Don't fret-- you will get into a work out groove soon! I love pics of him-- keep them coming! :)

  2. It took me several months to get back into working out. Kennedy wasn't the best sleeper and I was tired all the time. She's 13 months and I still have 10 pounds to go until my pre-pregnancy weight. I am beginning to think I will never lose them and I am actually okay with it. Love the pic of Tucker, so adorable!

  3. Look at that face! Adorable! I don't know from personal experience, but I've heard it definitely takes some time getting back into the grove of things post pregnancy. However, once you get there, it will be great! Best of luck with your new routine, getting back to work, and working back into your pre pregnancy clothes! I'm sure you'll be back on track in no time!
