Whew, it has been a crazy emotional couple of weeks! My cousins were here from England, Jensen turned 2 months old and Liam is off to kindergarten. Stack those milestones with less sleep than desired and you are asking for a basket case! Oh and today is Our 9th wedding anniversary!! Things have been crazy, but also really amazing.
I owe you all a two month postpartum update, and it has taken just as much courage as it did last time to take and post these pictures, so be kind. Actually I’ve been feeling really down about my body recently. I haven’t been seeing the numbers on the scale go down at all really in the last month and that is very very discouraging.
I know I’ve only been working out for two weeks, but I was expecting more from myself. One could argue that the numbers aren’t going down because I am gaining muscle, but it still hurts to see. I just have to keep reminding myself of this poster I found a few years ago
Actually, today was good, I am really glad I took pictures last month because I can actually see a teeny tiny bit of progress. It’s not much, but given that I’m only 9 weeks postpartum, I think any progress is a move in the right direction.
I have lost almost 30 lbs, so that is a little encouraging. I did decide earlier this week that I was going to start going full paleo again. I think it’s the right move at this point. My milk is (knock on wood) great, and Jensen is doing really well without diary. All that is really left to cut out is carbs and refined sugar. The carb thing will be harder this time, because I am currently obsessed with pb&j sandwiches 😳. But I think I can manage. I haven’t decided if I am going to cut out rice this time, but I will limit it for now and see how things go.
Alright, here we go… it’s picture comparison time! The picture on the left is one month postpartum and the picture on the right with the purple pants is today! these images come at a good time for me, because I was feeling very discouraged and unmotivated… but seeing even the smallest result is good enough for me!
If you are on a journey like mine, I encourage you to take the before picture, it really does help to see the side by side once in a while.
I would love to hear some success stories!! Share them with me below, or message me ❤️
I hope everyone has a great night!
