Closing in on 5 weeks

Tomorrow I head to the Doctor tomorrow for my 5 week check up, I guess they decided it was easier the doing a 6 week which is pretty normal time frame after having a baby.  I have no doubt that they will clear me to resume normal activity.....well because I have started already.  I also have healed great for having a C-section. I was out of the hospital in 48 hours, I had no issues with then incision and overall I am feeling great.

While, I did do some running last week I kept it slow and did run/walk intervals. My fitness level is at zero, so I need to build back up. Yesterday, was the first day I was home alone during the day with the baby. My oldest one started 1st grade and my husband went back to work from paternity leave and Jillian and I sat around taking selfies.

Yes, I have already trained her on the art of looking at the camera or it was a lucky shot. After getting our fill of self portraits I decided that I need to get off my booty and get my workout in. I can only use the 'I just had a baby excuse for so long'.  Until she gets her first set of immunizations we will be doing workouts at home instead of the gym. Keep her away from the cooties as long as possible. Plus, I think they have an age limit to go to the gym daycare. I should figure out what that is.
My gym in-home gym daycare is named BOB. We have a Pack and Play but I didn't want to bother setting it up so I just laid the BOB flat for sleeping and stuck her in. The good part is I could move her back and forth while on the bike if needed.

A close up of my sleeping beauty who let me get in my entire workout with only a little fussing and stopping once for a diaper change.

Getting used to being a stay at home mom for the next few months is going to be interesting. I took an extended leave from work and don't plan to start working again until January. Hopefully, during that time I will get back on track workout wise and get lots of extra snuggles in the process.

I will give myself bonus points if I actually start blogging more regularly.

  1. She is adorable...I also see some similarities between her and her big sis. ;-)

    I hear you on the fitness level girlie...I haven't had a baby so I can't use that one but, after the whole hip issue this last year (and of course eating b/c it hurt to work out) I feel like I am starting at square one again.

    **Better than not starting at all...right?!***
