Whew … this “winter storm” that hit Savannah as paralyzed our little city. While a little bit of ice is no sweat of your back if you’re from the north, down here where the cities aren’t prepared for it it makes a huge impact! I was called off school yesterday and now have late start today. Unfortunately that means we still have 4 classes to make up in an already jam-packed schedule. I did however love the extra time with my family and studying in my sweat pants 😉
Yesterday I shared with you guys Bryn’s two month update and I still can’t believe my little bug is getting so big! Now it’s time to fill you guys in on how mama is doing.
What do the numbers say?
I have to say I am incredibly excited about the progress that I made this month! I think both the pictures and the numbers show significant improvement and change 🙂
I have to admit I was really worried to see how my fitness would be impacted with started full time grad school. While I am not THRILLED with the fact that I have to get up at 5AM some mornings to work out, I am really happy that I have fallen into the routine pretty easily. In order to fit them in I sit down on the weekend and plan my workouts for the week and schedule them into available times. I have been averaging 20 miles of running a week and 3-4 strength sessions. I haven’t made it to yoga in a week or so and hope to change that this weekend 🙂
Oh goodness … I have fallen off the healthy food wagon the last couple of weeks. My Diet Coke consumption is higher than I’d like and so are my “treats”. While I’ve stuck with it for dinners, my lunches and snacks definitely need some improvement. Last week I was fighting a bad cold and when I don’t feel good all I want is terrible food. While I am happy that my numbers are good, I definitely don’t FEEL the greatest because of what I am fueling my body with.
Overall I am feeling pretty good. My core still feels squishy and isn’t nearly as tones as I would like. It took me about 4 months after having Em for my stomach to start to change towards normal and I am expecting the same type of time frame this time. What I have found this go round is I am much kinder to myself about my progress and I am feeling substantially prouder and more confident. 🙂
Excited to see what the next month brings! Have a happy Thursday 🙂
