I manage a country homestead and the lives of my 4 babies ages 10,8,5 and 3. I LOVE TO RUN and NEED to keep healthy and fit for my SANITY!! Seriously....All problems are solved when I am running.

Making MY health a priority allows me to be the mother and wife that I need to be for them.

4 weeks Postpartum

I'm now 4 weeks postpartum. No diet yet just trying to stay away from crappy food. So far I'm not having much success at that ;)
2 more weeks to go until I get to start exercising and will try to lose the extra 15 pounds I'm carrying by Christmas.


I figured I would wear the same shirt to show the progress of my belly shrinkage. It is a nursing top. Quite comfortable but not very flattering on my stomach. It is also hard to get the exact angle I was standing in but I think my 7 year old did a pretty good job.

So here you go.

This was at the 2 week mark. Oh good I DO see a big difference. Phew!!! Ha! Also notice the LACK of leaves on the ground outside. I have A LOT of raking to do!!!
