Happy Friday! It’s been MONTHS since I have done one of these and life is very different then the last time I did one!
Reading: I dug out my baby sleep “bible” that I read when Sara was a baby. I tell all my friends about it whenever they are looking to learn more about baby sleep. It’s the best!! I’m re-learning! Sara is and was a great sleeper and while I know it will be harder to adhere to a schedule this time around I am hoping to use the tips and tricks again from this book!
Running: Nope.. not running. Just walking. As I have mentioned I had a set back from the C-section. It’s called a hemotoma (collection of blood) and it’s right around my incision. It’s actually getting a lot better some of my incision is still open. I won’t lie that I am BEYOND antsy to get moving but in the meantime I get out and walk when I can to indoor places and enjoy lots and lots of cuddles! There will be time for me to get back to running when the weather is better! My doctor did just clear me this week to resume some treadmill walking! So, I’m excited about that!!
Non-Running Workout: I guess you could say breastfeeding and pumping. I’m building up a stash for the freezer. I’ve read that breastfeeding burns about 500 calories a day! It explains why I am so hungry all the time!
Excitement: I can’t believe this little man is coming up on being 1 month old!! Where did the time go??
Garden Item: Oh… a girl can dream… This topic makes me think of all things SPRING. Debating about doing a local CSA again or just doing our garden plus weekly trips to the farmers market. Last summer I was so sick early on in pregnancy that the thought of anything green made my stomach turn! This year it’s back ON!
TV: One would think that with sub zero temps and LOTS of time at home that my days would be filled with trashy TV mindless Netflix binge watching but to be honest the TV is rarely on! However, I am SOOO excited for season 3 of House of Cards and The Following which starts next week! The Hubs and I watched 1 and 2 together so we will watch this one when we have the time to do it together! Can’t freaking wait!!!
Kitchen Gadget: Easily the crock pot! It feels good to be back in the kitchen… cooking, prepping and experimenting when time allows but I love being able to throw dinner in the crock pot when B is sleeping in the morning and have it ready for when it’s time to eat!
Not-So-Healthy-Indulgence: I have a problem with nut butter. I wouldn’t call it terribly un-healthy but it’s my addiction right now and it’s being fueled by the Peanut Butter & Co!
Healthy Indulgence: Loving veggies. I do my best to make sure they are cooked and not raw because I don’t think B loves when I go overboard on raw veggies. It just feels so wonderful to NOT have heartburn and to be able to eat without feeling sick!
Mood: Feeling beyond lucky with a small side of exhaustion!
YOUR TURN! Pick something in this post and tell me about you!
