Believe it or not friends it has been seven months from when I gave birth to Bryn. I have a post dedicated to her awesomeness later this week so today I am focusing on my body after baby progress. Seems like I am getting this updates done every 2 months at this point but they are still coming!
Body After Baby Measurements – 7 Months
Overall I am thrilled with where I am. In fact, I looked back on where I was at 7 months after having Emmalyne and I am sitting pretty! While numbers are a good way to track progress they also don’t define my progress. Also, this is a reflection of my journey. Everyone has a different journey and we are all doing our best 🙂
Fitness wise I am hanging in there. I have recently reevaluated my goals when it comes to working out. Given my school schedule and my commitment to my family there often isn’t time for a long workout. Now, I am shooting for 3-5 days a week in workouts and count it as a win if that means a 20 minute walk one day. A far cry from what I used to consider “quality” but I am happy. I am currently doing Gina’s Summer Shape Up and am LOVING it.
While I am satisfied with my workouts my eating habits are blah. When I get tired mid-afternoon I reach for the worst of the worst. I do not make good choices when I am tired. I am making a better effort to get things on track because when I don’t eat well I feel worse. For me this means not bringing the junk into the house. That’s going to be step one. The next step may include bringing no money to school so I can’t buy junk. We shall see!
Overall I am really proud of my progress thus far. My longterm goals are a tad lofty but right now, given my situation and PA school, I am putting them on hold. I WILL reach them but right now I am celebrating the small victories and doing what I can, when I can. And that is enough.
