...it used to be the standard highway speed limit,
...it's the Interstate that runs North-South from just outside of New Orleans to Chicago,
...and it's my total weight gained in the past 9 months (technically I got up to 56 lbs).
After the delivery, I immediately lost 13 lbs.
Two weeks and one day later, I'm down a total of 27 lbs.
But I still have 29 lbs left to get back to my pre-preggers weight.
And while I was working out up until 1 week prior to delivery (running only 1/2 mile, but doing Elliptical for 30-45 min at 3-4 times a week), I've now had 3 straight weeks of not working out and no aerobic activity.
I feel I've slowly turned into a couch-potato/feeding machine. When your sweet piggy baby demands feedings every couple of hours and each feeding lasts anywhere from 10 min to 50 min, not including the obligatory burping and diaper changing time...all this on severe sleep deprivation...it's tough to muster up the energy to pack all the baby gear together, bundle your sweet monkey up and brave the chilly outdoors.
BUT I have to say that he's definitely worth it- seriously look at this sweet guy and you'll see why I choose our snuggle time over fitting into my clothes.
