Had a fun ladies day shopping. Amelia is ready for California in her new bathing suits from Janie and Jack and Target. Plus side to buying a bathing suit now is that everything is on super sale, downside is that, hello this is Vegas, summer isn’t over until October – we still need options for summer wear!!
I don’t know how I went so long without one of these. We have a baby carrier for Amelia, and she hates it after Few minutes. I was mostly worried about the Jersey cloth in the Vegas heat (there is tons of fabric to this thing!) But surprisingly, its pretty dang cool. The best part is that Amelia is so comfortable in it! Moms and expecting moms – this is a must have if you have things to do throughout the day, but want to keep baby close.
Having a baby you learn that your body is no longer yours. Between your pregnancy, delivery, breast feeding, cuddling, etc., your child is always demanding something of you physically. That being said – I didn’t realize just how out of sync I have gotten with my body. I worked 45 hours a week when I was pregnant, so working out didn’t happen very often. We would go on the occasional walk – wooohooo!.
I found an awesome prenatal yoga class, but the schedule was more aimed towards expecting moms who didn’t work. I’m just saying, a class offered on the weekends would have been nice for us working moms.
Anyway. Today kicked my butt. I feel great – right now – but am not looking forward to how I will be feeling over the next day or two. Amelia had so much fun, and all the little ones were surprisingly on their best behavior for the majority of the class. It makes me happy that I can go to class with other moms who have similar goals of getting and staying healthy after baby. Not to mention – I get to spend time with my wonderful daughter. I didn’t have to leave the class to change her – and even when the babies did get fussy, no one ever batted an eye. Its a win win all around.
I’m determined as ever to get this baby weight off. I purchased 5 more classes and have a friend to go with for motivation. My gym membership kicks back in on the 17th of this month, and I have already organized a plan to go to classes with my best friend Carly.
I weigh 180lbs today and have 50lbs to go until my goal.
Gym+Yoga=Healthy (Sexy) Momma. 😉
