Default post partum check in wek of january 4

i figured I'd start this early as Alexis and I hibernate due to the cold weather. I started back to work this week. Working an hour on Tues and and 2 hours on Thurs. On tuesday Alexis did drink some from the bottle but mostly screamed. Thursday she just screamed. Tuesday was my 34 birthday and Alexis did give me a nice card. Hubby lucked out as i informed him last week that he bought me a leather jacket. My figure is almost back, all clothes now fit. I do have a little weight to lose in the tummy and some boob weight. maggie, have you figured out how to weigh those boobs? Alexis was weighed at breastfeeding group yesterday. She weighed in, with clothes at 10ponds 10 ounces. Yes, around the size Bardric was at birth. She was the smallest in the group including an 8 week old. She is mostly sleeping through the night, waking up some nights at 3 0r 4 for a snack. She continues to snack all day. Enough of my babblings. This week's workout was my oldies but goodies. Next week will be a slower week because we are heading on Friday to New York for her baby naming which is like a christening.

Workout week:
Sunday-powermax =abs(can't remember which)
monday-PS-BBA+MIC hi/lo
Tues-PS-CST+MIC step
Wed-Leaner Legs(Don't have ps legs)
Thursday-Stepfit+bodymax abs(skipped parts of w/u and cooldown)
Friday-MIS
Saturday-Stepworks+cardio/weights ab section

Hey there!

Happy birthday and congrats on that figure--the best birthday present, eh?

Boob weighing has been largely unsuccesful:P

Bardric has been sleeping better at night, but continues to be fussy off and on during my workouts. It was a little better this week. I found that facing him away from me seems to help. If he can look at me it seems to remind him of what he may not have (boob).

I have lost a total of 16 pounds, so this rotation has so far been a good one for me, despite the lack of cardiovascular intensity. Also, I am getting stonger, so I know that I am not losing muscle. I am 4 pounds from my pre pregnancy weight--but remember that I was 30 lbs heavy when I started, so I have all that to go.

Our workout weeks were similar:)
Sun PSLA
Mon PS BBA, 20 min bike
Tues Step Fit
Wed MIS
Thur Rest
Fri Power Max
Sat PS CST, 20 min bike

Emy?

Any one else who cares to join?

take care,
Maggie

Maggie, our workout weeks do look similar. You should be real proud of yourself, i'll bet that in a few months you will be thinner than you were preprego. You really have been doing great workouts. Alexis has been doing better when i workout, I feed her twice in the morning then when she is content I leave her on her gymnee mat with cartoons on and she either watches tv or falls asleep for about half hour.i work out in unheated basement and have been trying to keep her where its warm. When she cries , i have had to stop workout and refeed but she has been making it til right before cooldown and abs most days.

I just finished laughing my way through your posts. I love all the talk of weighing our boobs! Really I think mine have got to be at least a pound each (maybe even 2 pounds in the mornings when they are full!). It's weird, even though they are so huge, I am so used to them that when I saw a picture of me from several years I ago, I have forgotten how small they used to be!! Anyway, I got on my parents' scale again, and it says 12 pounds to go, to get to my preferred weight.

Baby Maxwell is doing fine. He continues to drool a river. When I read your exercise experiences, I see all the same things I go through. Also, I can tell that he is starting to recognize Cathe because he sees her so much. When he's awake and in the same room, he watches my exercising and the TV with fascination... Probably wondering what the heck I'm doing.

Mon- Body Max (minus abs)
Tue- MIC + Body Max abs
Wed- SJ&P
Thu- Rhythmic Step
Fri- Leaner Legs + Imax intervals 1-5
Sat- CTX Upper Body + Imax intervals 6-10

Happy Birthday, shopaholic! "Hubby lucked out as i informed him last week that he bought me a leather jacket." That's a good one - why beat around the bush, huh. Husbands aren't notorious (at least, not in my household) for picking up on dropped hints, so why waste the time!
