Post Baby Body

This post is so I can remember I’m actually saying this…

My post baby body is not terribly bad.

There are so many horror stories out there about how a baby ruins your body.  Don’t even Google “body after twins”.  It’s surprising to me how many people post incredibly honest pictures.  They didn’t give me any hope though.

Granted mine is still holding onto about 8 pounds but I’m not exactly working very hard to get rid of it.  I should. But I’m not.

I do my yoga.

I run (honestly, it happens once every 2 months…not exactly an exercise regimen). I’ve planned to go every night this week and it hasn’t happened yet!

I do squats, planks/crunches and push ups daily.

None of those things are my normal workout approach.

I wonder if me researching and viewing all the unflattering pics after those ladies had their babies, just helped me be more accepting of mine.

I’m thrilled that things, for the most part, are back to normal.  My normal that is.  Is there room for improvement? Absolutely.   Do I want to be healthy and set a good example for my kids? Yes.  Am I done beating myself up over not working out 6 5 4 any days of the week? Yes.

I went from this (I think this is actually around 8 months and 30+ pounds) back down to fit into three quarters of my old clothes.  I’ll take it! I still cry a little when something won’t zip though.

In other news…more importantly, we have more teeth!  Weston got another one on the bottom last weekend…

and Corbin’s first one has just barely popped through.  With fear of jinxing it….I’d say they’ve been really great teethers.  I know, I know, there is much more to come.

    No, they are great teethers. The first is worst! At least for Eddie. I told you that second one comes quick!

    And hooray for getting your body back. I am not even close. I started going to the gym every night after Eddie goes down. It's late, and I am exhausted but something has to give. I am really unhappy and I really want to try again soon for another baby. So missy, give yourself a HUGE pat on the back :0)
