I tried the Happy Baby workout yesterday. I expected it to be a easy sail along workout but it was tough! We got through the first 18 minutes before Zoe got cranky, but I watched most of it. I definitely felt my muscles working! Zoe liked a lot of it, especially when I held her for knee raises, bumping her with my knee. We will do it again and when we can do the full workout, I will write a full review.
One thing I like about the yoga workout I have over this workout is that it is broken up into 20 minute pieces that you can do separately or together. It is hard to entertain Zoe with one task for very long and it seems 18-20 minutes is when she is done. I know that this span will get longer as she gets older.
In other workout news, I decided to do Les Mills Pump next instead of ChaLEAN Extreme. The only reason is that I haven’t done Pump before and I am so excited to check it out! I will let you know what I think. I bought it now and I think I’ll start in March.
I did some sewing today, but I’m not quite ready to share. I need another trip to the store and a little more time to myself. Stay tuned!

I tried the first of the Mommy and Baby workouts I ordered…from Shiva Rea’s Mama & Baby Yoga. The DVD has three workouts on it. I had hoped to do all three, or at least two, but we needed a diaper change instead. I preferred it over the class I had attended for a few reasons – I could go as long or short as Zoe was feeling, I could do it at any time, and no one had their class interrupted when Zoe wasn’t up to continuing.
There was one downside. It was more mommy focused than mommy and baby focused. I liked that the class had massage and movement for the baby. This was more yoga for mom with a little extra to keep the baby watching so you could do it while the baby was there. One of the poses Zoe loved though. She was on my knees with me on my back, shins parallel to the floor, like she was flying. Lots of smiles!
Maybe I will try to find a baby yoga workout. Then we can mix them…a little for you, a little for me. We will definitely do this often, it just isn’t exactly what I was looking for.

First, lots of people have asked me about the ingredients for the lactation cookies. I got anything difficult to find on Amazon – vat of coconut oil, brewers yeast, ground flaxseed and dairy free chocolate chips. The coconut oil and flaxseed were easy to find, but I wanted large amounts and it was cheaper this way!
Yesterday, we went to a Yogibaby class…yoga for mom and baby. Baby was not into it. She cried most of the time so we ended up having “calm the baby at the yoga studio” time. She did laugh at the end so maybe she liked it. We will try again! I didn’t really count it as a workout but I feel some soreness from a few things we did!
I’m feeling so close to all better. The only time I’m having sinus pain is when I exercise, and even that is minimal!
