Welllll, it’s been about 5.5 weeks since I gave birth…SO! let’s take a gander at my progress, shall we?
1 week postpartum // 2 weeks PP // 5 weeks PP
As you can see, there is not much change between 2 weeks and 5 weeks. I will say that I am having some trouble losing the weight — it’s not coming off as easily as I had hoped – who woulda’ thought?!?!
Therefore, I have decided to start really start watching what I eat (i.e. counting calories, #barf). So here’s a look at what I am eating in a typical day…
Breakfast is either oatmeal with a banana and apple or eggs with turkey sausage and avocado
Lunch is almost always a sandwich of some sort
Dinner varies but on this particular occasion, I had steak fajitas with corn and salad
Because I am still breastfeeding, I am constantly snacking and I am trying my darndest to keep it healthy around here
Hopefully all this work will amount to some REAL progress soon!
In other news, the baby is…a HANDFUL!!! People always tell you how hard it is to have an infant around and let me tell you, these people are not lying (as I type this, Penny is screaming bloody murder because I put her in her crib)!
Here she is at 1 week and 1 month…
Side note: people allllways assume she’s a boy even when I put her in a dress!
Enjoy your week, folks!
