She’s growing like a weed. She’s starting to sit up, roll over, and I love how she laughs when we sing and talk to her. It’s crazy how she’s turning into this little person right before my eyes.
I’m changing, too — and I’m noticing it physically. I’m… well… SMALLER. My pajamas, which were tight just a few months ago, are now loose around my waist. I’m back to wearing my small pair of Lulu WunderUnders. And I just went shopping this weekend and was pleasantly amazed by the sizes I had to buy.
Eight weeks of clean-eating and intense training really can change things.
But I think what has been really telling is my results at the gym. Yesterday we started Crossfit Total I only had time to complete one of the 3 max-weight exercises:
I’m back. 145# was my max up through the first half of my pregnancy. After that, it was too unsafe to even go that high. And after Mads was born, I had to rebuild the strength I had lost. I tried 145# in December, and scratched.
I’m back. If anything rings a bell for me that I have recovered from pregnancy — it’s this. I can’t wait to finish out Total on Thursday.
Later on Tuesday, I did one of the challenge’s home workouts, since I skipped it on Saturday.
10 push ups
15 push ups
20 push ups
Time: 6:02 @ 30#
I really need a kettlebell, so I can use a full pood on those swings.
Today I get my body comp done for the end of the challenge — we’ll see how I did!
