Lose Weight After Pregnancy: Week 1 #2

A Battle to Lose Weight After Pregnancy


SO, last Tuesday, I posted about how I was starting the Jillian Michale’s 30 Day Shred program for my post pregnancy workout regime. I didn’t realized until after I posted that last week should’ve technically been Week 0 since I hadn’t done anything yet. That’s why the Week 1 #2 for this week.

Anyways, I’m not going to spend a whole lot of time on this because, as I said before, I am NOT turning this into a workout blog. There’s a good chance that I fail miserably at shedding the pounds, so I would be silly to spend hours trying to make the perfect post so you can see what a workout warrior I am not. I’m just going to give quick updates so that you guys can see if Jillian is helping me lose weight after pregnancy or not….

Post Pregnancy Workout: Week 1

My infant son will be 3 months old in one week. It’s unreal how much faster time goes by with two kids than with one. I feel like he should still only be a month old! With the time seemingly moving faster, my post pregnancy workout has somehow(totally unrelated to my laziness, lack of motivation, and extreme fatigue) been delayed this far.

My lack of exercise(though, chasing a toddler around the house probably can be considered exercise…) coupled with my inhuman eating practices that consists of a bite of my toddler’s oatmeal in the morning, a bag of chips for lunch, an energy drink, and a small plate of cold dinner(because it’s always cold by the time I can sit down) in the evening has proven to be a pretty bad formula for losing weight.  SO, here’s to change!!

6 Things That Make Having Young Kids Tolerable

Whenever I feel extra debbie downer about having little kids, I remember these 6 things that make having young kids tolerable:

1. You get awesome tax breaks

This can’t be denied! After having my first son, I remember getting an AMAZING income tax return that following Spring. I just had baby number two this July so I’m definitely looking forward to tax season this year! So here is my advice on this one: if you are looking for a BIG tax break, have as many kids as you possibly can! I bet Kate is banking from her income tax with her eight kids!

2. You always have an excuse to get out of things

Don’t feel like driving two hours to your 2nd cousin’s wedding? “I’m sorry, but my son woke up with a stomach bug this morning…we could ALL be infected so we aren’t going to be able to make it.”

10 Reasons to NOT Teach Your Kid to Talk
  1. He will demand to listen to retarded songs like Katie Perry and Elmo.
  2. He will protest the oatmeal you cooked for breakfast, demanding only the chocolate syrup that he found in the fridge when you opened it to get the milk.
  3. His favorite word for the first two years after learning to talk will be “NO!”
  4. He will whine, “outsiiide” very loudly over and over and over again while watching it rain through the window.
  5. He will imitate you and make you feel like you sound like a monster…..I DON’T sound like that whenever I yell at the dogs….do I?
