Kara is 16 days old - she's definitely not as chill or easy as Nick so far. The first week seemed easy. The second week it got a little more complicated. It's going ok! I feel like the second time around, I get out much more- like we've taken Nick to the pool, I've been able to do some errands, I haven't been homebound - yet. Still struggling a bit with the feeding - I 'm striving for a 3 hour schedule (some people think schedules are nuts, but this is how Nick slept through the night by 10 weeks). I get stressed out if I have to feed her before 3 hours because she won't calm down. And trying to stay awake while feeding her at night and keeping her awake too - is tough! I need to have easy breakfasts planned out and ready for the morning. What do your kids eat? Kara definitely cries more than Nick did in between so it has been a bit of a challenge. She's feisty! How do moms of 2 fit it all in?
I've managed to get in about 30 min/day of some form of exercise (lifting or running) since Monday. Today I napped instead. I've ran 3 times - 2 miles, 3 miles and then 31 minutes outside which ended up being only 2.7 miles. I'm going to work on getting my speed back, but for now I just want to get back in shape. I still want to do a triathlon in the spring. I dropped the initial 17 lbs and this time I gained 23, so I have that extra weight to lose + another 10 lbs to pre-kids weight. Lots to work on!! I've been eating quick/non prepared things and my hunger has increased since the first week for sure!
