Why hello there DM & other things in my life….

So I finally reintroduced myself to dailymile….I’m starting to feel better physically but mentally, I’m drained.

How do people workout and look after themselves when they have more than one child?

PLEASE tell me your secrets :)

Wednesday it snowed so we all got dressed in our winter’s finest and headed outside.

I shoveled the entire driveway with Hudson in the baby carrier…

… yeah I logged it on dm. Who are we kidding, it’s a workout. I dare going to challenge that ;)

Picture 1

Even Logan and Hudson passed out after we had finished. It was a big job :P

I’ve also been doing small sets of these exercises daily….

…..and slowly adding reps. I’ve been doing tons just being a mom. I mean tons of people have told me to stop and rest but I just can’t seem to…

Besides, the whole thing doesn’t take long to do but leaves me feeling not so lazy.

We walk a lot though so I guess that and breastfeeding is burning some calories because I’ve dropped to 140lbs (my pre-prego weight was 134lbs, though that was muscle and this is flab).

* YOWZA’s I know I mention boobs far too much as of late but seriously I think I’m going to start saving for implants I don’t know if I can give these up!*

I told Colin that starting Monday I’m going to start trying to run. I don’t have my postpartum check up for another 2 weeks (he wanted to see me at 8 weeks not 6) but he told me I could start running/walking and use pain as my indicator. So monday evening I’m going out for a walk/run combo with Rex!!!

Yes, sometimes I like to try my running clothes on and look at myself in the mirror just for fun. I am a nerd *

In other news….

Logan, Hudson and I are all signed up for our swimming classes beginning in January. I am really excited about it and I can’t wait to show you Huds cute swim diaper that I bought him :) <— don’t lie I know you all care about my diapers ;)

Hudson has been smiling more. Which makes me feel more like he cares and less like I’m a milk factory and pacifier inserter. He was super happy today when I spent all my money on him at Black Friday sales :D

I am hoping to do some more shopping tonight but I’m not going to lie, fighting off people in the sale racks may prove to be another workout.

————————————————————————————————

Did you take advantage of the sales today?? What did you buy??

I bought some things I can’t mention on here because of Colin ;) and cloth diaper stuff because I’m obsessed. I also plan to grab a sportswatch to get me motivated but couldn’t decide between the Garmin 10 or the Nike sportswatch ???? <— thoughts??

Is anyone else obsessed with their breasts or is that just an Ali Mc thing?? 

As long as I’ve had boobs they’ve been small and even when they ballooned with Logan it was new to me and they were painful and I guess I just didn’t take the time to appreciate them (truth be told I was convinced they’d stay….but alas) now I’m just really trying to enjoy them for as long as I can :)

Has ANYONE ever tried to START running in the winter??? 

I really feel like getting out there may be a tad difficult ;)
