Monday really got away from me, y’all. We’ve been going non-stop lately, and today flew by as well. I’ll recap our weekend soon, but the best part was definitely taking Hudson to the Augusta National for the first time. He slept through the excitement, but it still totally counts.
I may not have time to recap our weekend, but I most certainly have time to discuss my postpartum fitness adventures. That’s primarily because there isn’t much to report. Without further ado, here’s how I’ve been doing lately.
Mind: I really can’t complain about the current state of affairs. I’m getting decent sleep right now, I’m making some time for myself here and there, and I have had some awesome outings with my boys. Honestly, the only thing that has affected my mood lately is the stress that comes with trying to accomplish all the things while at home with a baby. I’m working from home for a while, and it’s been difficult trying to find time to get things done. It’s a daily struggle to prioritize my time, but it’s definitely getting better every day. He’s napping more predictably now, which is huge. It’s like I can see the light at the end of the tunnel, you guys. Who knows, I may even get the dishes done tomorrow. Maybe.
Health: Other than my eternal battle with pollen, I’m pleasantly surprised by how good I’ve felt the past month. I’ve been experimenting with eating a little cleaner throughout the week, and it’s made me realize just how much room for growth I had in the veggie-eating department. I’m trying to eat some sort of plant at every single meal now. It doesn’t always happen, especially when I’m shoveling oatmeal into my mouth while trying to wrestle a three-year-old into socks and shoes. Oh well. I’m a work in progress.
Fitness: This is probably my biggest fail of the month. I cannot get into any type of workout routine to save my life. I’ve worked out five times the past month, and one of those was a quick fit-test just to see where I stand. I’m hoping to turn a corner in this department soon, but I’m not quite sure when it will happen. There just doesn’t seem to be enough time in the day. Apparently there isn’t enough time to brush my hair, either. My bad.
Weight: 132 lbs (-4) Waist: 28.5 in (-1.5) Hips: 38.5 in (-1.5) Right Arm: 9.5 in (-.5) Right Thigh: 21.5 in (-.5)
1 Mile Run: 8:16 min (-47 sec) Push Ups: 4 (+.5) Pull Ups: Ha! Maybe like 1/2 of one Plank: 1:10 min (+9 sec)
While I haven’t improved all that much in most areas, I am excited to see what I can do when I finally force myself to put in the effort. I’d love to be able to do pull ups again, but these shrimpy arms need some serious work. I can’t be too upset, though. It’s only been two months! I’ll grow a muscle somewhere eventually.
Now if you want to see a much cuter two month update, go read Hudson’s. See y’all soon!
