T25 Wrap Up

Finally!  So, my T25 results pictures do not show the whole story, but here they are.

So, like for my other post baby results so far, I worried the whole time about supply.  I’m not sure if I had known better from Insanity what I needed to eat, etc or what, but I struggled less with supply during T25.  I lost 3 lbs and 1 inch.  I don’t see the results very well.

But!  I feel great.  I felt stronger at the end.  I was able to do more in the workouts.  I modified almost nothing.  And the workouts were so quick and surprisingly fun.  I can’t wait to do it again and be able to see the results everyone else has seen!  But breastfeeding comes before weight loss for me.

My post baby weight loss is taking some time.  But I’ll get there!  I knew I’d be one of those who doesn’t lose while breastfeeding 🙂   Just the way it goes.  Some days it’s hard to deal with, but I know I’m doing what’s best for us.  I have plenty of time!

My sick day

Today I took a sick day. I slept a bit extra, lounged a bit, took a walk (fresh air!) and picked the baby up a little early. I hadn’t taken a sick day in over 4 years because I can work from home, but a debilitating headache plus no sleep leaves me a bit out of commission.

Now it’s back to bed. Goodnight!

Catching Up

Hi, I’m still here!  I feel like I do this post too often.  I apologize.  I want to do better but I know that isn’t meaningful.

One thing of note is that I try not to post fluff.  I don’t want to come here and say things just to say things!  Sometimes, I just don’t have much going on.  But today I do, so here you go!

We had a 3-day weekend!  Daycare was closed yesterday, my husband had off because that’s his schedule, and I took off.  Three days was lovely!  Even if I have a cranky teether all the time.

Friday was my last day of T25, so I took the weekend off of concentrated exercise.  We walked, did yoga and walked some more, but I didn’t put in a video, change into workout clothes (though my usual clothes are pretty close!) or pull out weights or a map.

I took my T25 after photos, but need to take measurements (yesterday) today, so I’ll post after that.  I will put up its own post, but I am happy with how it went and look forward to doing the program again….possibly with gamma too once I am in losing mode.

We had a little playdate that was fun.  I don’t get to see her play with the babies at daycare much…once I’m there, it’s time to hang with me!  It was a good time and we went home with some great new (to us) stuff!  Thank you again!

We started planning somebody’s birthday party too.  One month to go!   I can’t believe it has gone so fast.  It has been a crazy fun ride these 11 months!

I also got my next few challenge/accountability groups planned out.  I’m excited to be doing a Shakeology challenge next.  I haven’t done one since the beginning of the year.  I love sharing Shakeology with others because it makes me feel great.  If you’d like more info about that, comment or email me!

Some updates

Here are some other things I have been up to that haven’t made it to the blog yet…

I participated in an Insanity flash mob.  It was fun, but we got broken up in 8 minutes 😦  And since I was doing Insanity, I got one picture!  My sister and I ended up jogging in NYC to keep up the fitness portion of the day, so that was fun.  I was wearing the wrong sneakers for it and haven’t been doing any running, so it was slow and short.  But a good time.

My baby turned 10 months old and hates light sabers.  That’s okay.  She’s still cool

She also ate banana pancakes.  We all had pancakes this morning – banana protein pancakes for adults, bananas dipped in pancake batter for the baby.  Enjoyed by all!

I learned how to back carry in the ergobaby…without assistance of a couch or husband!  I did use a mirror, so I may not be doing this alone out of the house just yet.  Practice is important when it comes to carriers!  I love my ergo.  I definitely recommend it if you’re looking for a baby carrier.  The front carry is so easy and comfortable.  Hip carry is a little more complicated, but not bad.  Back carry is more logistical than difficult…you have to get the baby on your back, but then it’s nothing.  And I can feed her discretely while she’s in it.  If you need help with yours, let me know!

We went to Mariano Rivera’s last home game.  It was emotional.  He’ll be missed.

What have you been up to lately?  Any end of summer/start of fall fun?
