The high of my week was starting to exercise again! I was 6 weeks postpartum last Friday and even though I don’t have my official doctor check-up until January 24 (almost 9 weeks postpartum) I’m feeling good so have added in some exercise again. I’m following the Fitness Blender Burn program and it’s felt so good to get my sweat on again. I am taking it very easy and really paying close attention to how I feel and sticking to low impact.

The low of my week was dealing with my little sleep fighter. Little miss Olivia is going through Leap #2 and a few days ago started fighting sleep like crazy. It has been taking 1.5 – 2 hours to get her to sleep at night and also for her daytime naps. Thank god she still sleeps quite well and for about a 4 hour stretch once she does go to sleep.

The low of my week was also the FRIGID temperatures we are having. It felt like -50 F yesterday with the windchill!! Insane.

A podcast episode I loved was The Lazy Genius Loses Weight. Such a great message for this time of year when so many people are setting weight loss goals. I am really focusing on NOT thinking about weight loss postpartum and rather focusing on feeling good and eating foods and moving my body in ways that make me feel good – who cares about some number on the scale!

For my workouts, I completed Fitness Blender workouts on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday. I went to mom & baby yoga on Wednesday and I walked Monday, Tuesday and Thursday. Plan is for another Fitness Blender workout today!

The best money I spent was on purchasing the Core + Floor Restore program after reading about it on Fannetastic Food. It’s been so fun to follow Anne’s blog since her daughter Riese was born the same day as Olivia!

My plans this weekend include our baby shower! Tomorrow my aunt is hosting a baby shower for Olivia and I’m looking forward to showing her off to a bunch of extended family 🙂 Other then that, not much. Since Eric works for 14 days straight and then has 7 days off and I’m on maternity leave weekends really don’t mean much to me right now. It’s just another 2 days. However, Eric will be on days off starting next week and that we can’t wait for. Just watch Olivia start to sleep perfectly again 😉

What was the best money you spent this week? What was the high of your week? What is the weather like where you are?

  1. Ugh your weather is THE WORST. It was -9 and -27 with the windchill when we were waiting for the bus this morning but that’s not nearly as bad as “feels like” -50! This weather is the absolute worst. I”m not outside much besides waiting for the bus but I hate how uncomfortable (and dangerous) it is to be outside! I can’t even imagine working outside for 12 hours like Eric does! Poor guy!

    The best money I spent this week was on some nursing tanks to bring to the hospital. The high of the week was our ultrasound. Seeing the baby makes it feel a bit more real!!

    I was excited to exercise after having the girls too!
    Oh the leaps – so fun! I found that sticking with a routine helped when they went through those periods and they always went back to “normal”.
    Hope you have a wonderful baby shower this weekend!

    I have no words for -50 degrees. Like, do you even leave your house when it’s that cold? I get cold at 50 degrees FAHRENHEIT. I cannot imagine NEGATIVE 50 degrees. I don’t even know what that feels like! Florida is currently going through a cold front, and by cold front, I mean it was 45 degrees this morning. I’ve got my boots on, though, like a good Florida girl. 😉

    Good for you for getting back into exercising! It must feel good to be able to move again:)

    Ugh, it’s so cold where you are… send some cooler temperatures our way, because our January has been so mild that we don’t even get much snow (just rain) in the Sierras.
