Hello! I'm back again. It feels great to be back. I hope I still have some readers out there but I really don't know how many people blog anymore!
I've been gone for a while. At least for a year. You see, one year ago today I found out I was pregnant. I vowed to be healthy during pregnancy, but life happened and goals fell to the wayside. I did manage to keep my pregnancy weight gain to under 30lbs.
I had a perfect pregnancy. I was fortunate enough to love every minute of it. Then, on May 29 (1 month & 1 day before my due date) my little boy decided to make his entrance early and in a whirlwind. My water broke (surprising the crap out of me) in the middle of a very stormy night (doesn't he know mommy is afraid of storms?). He ended up arriving via emergency c section because the cord was wrapped around his torso and his heart rate was dropping with every (very painful) contraction. He came out at 5lbs 5oz and a gorgeous full head of hair. I only saw him briefly before he was off to the NICU and I spent 12 long hours apart from him on bed rest after the c section. Then... I finally met and held my baby boy who I had dreamed of cuddling.
Here I am... Meeting him and crying my eyes out (hello hormones!). My sweet boy.
Fast forward to today.
I can't believe it's been a year since I found out my world was changing.
I love being a mom. I had no idea I would love it this much. I'm lucky to have a healthy & happy baby So lucky. And it doesn't hurt that he's pretty darn cute.
Anyway... What I don't love is my post baby body. That's why I'm here. It's time to get back to losing weight!
I'm doing this at home & not paying anyone any money (hello mat leave income! No top up for me... Just unemployment! I'm tracking my calories on http://www.myfitnesspal.com and reporting on everything here.
If you're still reading... I thank you & hope you'll come back!
