Bill studying for the CFA round 2
What I noticed over the past few days is that all of the pieces have to fit together and working out has to be a priority if you plan to fit it in when you have a child. Besides working it around feeding and lil Nick sleeping, then you have to worry about visitors (AHHH!) Bill is trying to study for round 2 of the CFA exam, and I don't even think I made a post congratulating him on passing Round 1 of this insane 35% passing rate exam! WAY TO GO BEEZ! He found out Jan 28! So we have to kind of tag team and take turns doing things but that means hardly doing anything together which is sad :(
Bill got to study today though and I got to run. I wasn't going to run today but then I realized we couldn't go to the gym together and I didn't want to leave incase the little guy got cranky because I wanted to make sure he could get some studying in today! It is hard getting anything done and the day just flies by! So I hit up the treadmill and got in 4 miles -45 minutes. It feels much better than pregnant running and I am still just taking it easy. I don't have any achilles issues so far and its basically comfortable - maybe some hollow kind of feeling lower down? It will be great to get faster - soon enough - and see how that feels! This is a great article on exercise postpartum from DC running mama: http://www.exerciseismedicine.org/pdfs/c76postpartum.pdf. It made me feel better about getting back into working out!
I went on the wii fit today and it told me I lost 14.6 pounds. Then told me it was concerned that I did it too quickly. Haha. I was looking forward to that. Back in the normal range - not overweight on the wii fit.
10 days postpartum - a bit flabby but not bad
37 weeks - last pic that I took
The next few days will be interesting as I try to find balance and figure out a schedule so that I can make it to the gym, get things done, and spend time with my sweetheart husband too! Teaching is such a big part of my life, it will be an adjustment that I hope will be easy as the days/weeks pass and I'm not working.
