It's pretty fancy looking!
Next up is to get back into consistent exercise. I'm lucky that I still have a lot of the strength retained from prior to pregnancy so have a good foundation. I've enrolled in mommy and me yoga, which I'm enjoying a lot more than I thought I would. I used to find yoga horrifyingly boring, but I don't know if it can be boring when you are trying to simultaneously entertain a baby, or when another baby who happens to have learned to crawl comes racing across the room and wraps themselves around your ankle. Holding Warrior II pose with a rattle in one hand to keep baby's attention, Chair pose with a wriggling 14lb (or so) weight in your arms, or Downward-Facing Dog while blowing raspberries at the little face below yours, is a multi-tasking challenge all of it's own. In fact, I think it deserves bonus yoga points. Seeing as that's only once a week though, I plan to get up a half hour early (yikes) to do Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred on weekday mornings. As much as I kind of want to punch that woman in the face for being annoying, it's a 30 minute workout that I can do at home which seems to get great reviews. Let's see how that goes.
My new bathroom scale arrived this week. I never would have thought I'd be excited about the arrival of a scale that would sit in the bathroom and taunt me on a daily basis, but I am! As of yesterday morning, I have officially lost 47lbs. That's 7lbs past my pre-pregnancy weight and a great start to keep the motivation going.
I'm telling you all this because it's now out in the open and, having told the world, that makes me accountable. Going to be doing all my measurements and whatnot this weekend so I can get a fresh start next week. Watch this space!
