Yup...i said the word "DIET"!!! Last August I told myself I was going to get healthier so I lost a good 20lbs and then when I got pregnant with Jacie in October I was happy I no longer had to be on a "diet!" I wasn't the most healthiest pregnant person out there and did indulge in mostly unhealthy food but I had an excuse right? After all I only gained 18lbs with her so I think I did pretty darn good with my weight!! When I got home from the hospital I was down 10 of that and then throughout that first week home I lost another 2. This last month I have been hovering above 5-7lbs pre-pregnany weight. My stomach is no where near what it use to look like before. Its a bit flabbier!!! It's crazy that I can't button my pants I fit into when I was ONLY 5lbs lighter but fit perfectly into pants I wore when I was 20lbs bigger!!! My jeans on the other hand can button so that is still good news =) The main goal is to fit back into my work pants before well....WORK!! So...I start on Monday! Eating healthier and nightly walks with my family and maybe a morning walk with Jacie should kick start it up. I will probably also add some Wii fit or Mario DDR (I love that game) throughout the days also. I can no longer eat like I am eating for two!!! I have to do something!! Goodbye maternity clothes. I guess it's time to put them in storage!!
Last night was the perfect night for our family!! Even though we haven't completely set her up on a schedule I do know I want to start her on a nightly schedule so hopefully she will learn the cues for bedtime. We started at 8pm with a walk around the neighborhood, feeding when we got home, Jacie then took a 30-45 min nap, we bathed her, snuggled her for a bit, last feeding around 10:30 and then she fell asleep for the night. She woke up at 4:30am, ate, went back to bed and back up at 8:30!!! Jacie is doing awesome at sleeping- 6 hours in a row for a 1 month old!!!
