The New Baby...and Not so New Body ;)
So...She is Here. My long awaited 4th and final child. For the next year or so this blog will be dedicated to my weight loss/fitness journey back to health. I started this blog after the birth of our third baby and found it a great help to keep me on track. It helps to know that people are watching me and supporting me through this journey.
I also think I do a pretty good job at getting back into shape and enjoy sharing my tips and secrets with whoever is interested in hearing about them.
I also like to be COMPLETELY honest about how HARD IT IS TO GET BACK IN TO SHAPE.
I'm a tiny person but don't hate me. I work hard at it.
At this point I'm just recovering from the birth 3 days ago. I am breastfeeding and just trying to sleep as much as possible. I won't even THINK about starting to exercise before 6 weeks postpartum. My body worked hard growing this baby over the last 10 months and it deserves to rest. I deserve to give myself time to recover and allow my body to sleep, relax, renourish and allow it to lose or hold onto whatever weight it needs to.
Besides...being a FIT MOM means being fit physicaly, mentaly and spirituly fit and I can only do that with rest and proper nourishment at this point.
So that is where I'm at. I'll be changing this blog with starting point pictures and goals over the next few weeks...But only once I've had a few naps.
See you later....
