B.A.B-Body After Baby

I can’t believe that it has already been over 7 weeks since I gave birth. In some ways it seems like it was ages ago because Caspian looks so big & like Phoenix has been alert since day 1. My milk must have super human powers because I swear at the right angle this kid has rolls like Mama June {you know from Honey Boo Boo}. For the most part my body seems to have gotten the message because someone’s damn Aunt Flo showed up weeks, months even before she was due. Damn her.

But in other ways I’m not sure my body has completely gotten the message yet. Snack, snack, snack, snack. Is all I seem to want to do now. And yes, I know breastfeeding women can have a few extra calories because like all the celebrity Mom’s say breastfeeding is supposed to be the super post-partum weight-loss trick. But I can’t bank on that because last time I gained weight…that was also because all I did was stay home & snack, snack, snack.

I was lucky enough though that during both of my pregnancies I didn’t gain an obscene amount of weight {15 with Phoenix 8 with Caspian} & have lost all of my “baby weight” since birth. I didn’t deprive myself during pregnancy either. I indulged in the extra scoop of chicken at my favorite Mexican grill. The 2nd or 3rd cookie before bed & I developed an undying love to Chef Boyardee Canned Pasta specifically the ravioli. I’ve always loved Chef B canned food but for some reason my taste for them was in overdrive my last trimester.

But even though I ate canned pasta like it was going out of style I still managed to do well with my weight gain. However, I wasn’t the thinnest toothpick in the package before getting pregnant. And now that baby has arrived my fun is over, sad panda. My workout DVD’s came in the mail yesterday & I’m ready to roll out my yoga mat & tie on my running shoes & get my butt in gear like for real for real.

    Sounds like you are doing awesome with the BAB! I’m totally jealous in the best possible way!

    PS If you are looking for jogging strollers, the BOB really is worth the money, but the Schwinn is a great second choice for less cash.
