I’m Back!

I’m officially back to blogging. My posts were previously scheduled up to this point so I could have a sweet new baby. Oh, how sweet she really is. I had her a week and a half ago via C-section and I have been enjoying having my husband off of work to help me recover. Seriously, I don’t know what I would have done without him. Our new little girl is a calming addition to our new home and we so love her to pieces! DSC_1389 photo (6)

My kids can’t get enough of their new little sister. My husband and I see our biggest job to be defenders of ‘too much love’ from her siblings!

Here she is, as sweet as ‘pie’. Little P barely makes a squeak, is perfectly healthy and only wakes up twice a night. We couldn’t ask for more!

We had a movie night at the hospital and enjoyed popsicles, ‘Frozen’, and our new little sister. Life is good!

 

So that’s us, that’s the real me. Right now instead of wearing sports bras and tennis shoes, I’m sporting nursing bras and mesh panties.  The two things that our husbands are head over heels about after child birth. :) To hit it home, It’s important to remember that no matter what race or challenge we are having in our lives, our loved ones are what matter most.  So this is the real me. I’m a mom, the boss, a cook, and even if my only goal is to walk my sorry hind end to the mailbox by Friday, I still consider myself an athlete.  It doesn’t matter what your starting point is, just get out and live. As of today, i’m starting from square 1. I’m on my journey to get back in shape so I can enjoy every moment. Forget about excuses simply get out and move. Your goals need to get written today to enjoy the successes of tomorrow.

Short term: Walk to Mailbox by Friday April 4th
Short Term: Run 1 mile without stopping by May 10th
Long Term: Complete a Marathon by Sept 16th
Long term: Lose 15 pounds (by October) and when I do, I get a pair of THESE!

 

Side note for women who have C-sections: For those of you who have C-sections like me. May I suggest getting an Abdominal Binder. This is my life saver to walking again. It helps so that your incision doesn’t get pulled apart when you stand up or twist to get out of bed. Some doctors prescribe it, some don’t. But really they are amazing!

    I never had a C-section, so I really appreciate your candor on this subject. You have a lovely family! And there’s no doubt in my mind that this time next year you’ll be packing for Boston.
