Can I be completely honest with you for a moment? I just finished sharing an amazing peanut butter cupcake with my husband and it was soooooo good!
All right, enough about that and on to my stats :).
Finding balance is so important, which is why I shared with you that I just had a few bites of a cupcake. I gained 3 pounds this month and I am totally fine with that. I feel great and knew that after coming off the 21 day cleanse my body would readjust to eating sugar and a limited amount of dairy products. Month 9 and Month 10 comparison photo is shown below.
As great as looking good feels, feeling good is even greater. Josh and I juice, drink nutrient rich smoothies, and eat lots of veggies to stay healthy in addition to our workouts. We still continue to juice first thing in the morning and typically have a smoothie later in the day. You can see our green juice recipe here. I also take a multivitamin and omega-3 supplement everyday (I like the Garden of Life brand).
The next paragraph is for ladies only because it could possibly be too much info for the fellas. Back in January I started spotting and was surprised that my monthly visitor had returned earlier than I had anticipated. Nothing happened in February so I was starting to think it had been a fluke. I guess I just assumed since I was still nursing I wouldn’t have my period. This past month it appeared again and lasted a little longer but was not anything major. I don’t really know what to expect for the next month. Did anyone experience anything similar?
My workouts this month went something like this: 10k race (ran my fastest race pace ever!), yoga (of course), running, swimming, TRX, running hills at the zoo pushing Caden in the stroller, and teaching my weekly bootcamp. I always love a good sweaty workout and enjoyed the variety this month. I also take lots of walks pushing Caden in the stroller or carrying him in the Ergobaby. The weather is beautiful right now in Arizona and it feels amazing to be able to spend time outdoors!
Let’s talk goals! I am still reading my bible everyday and I am on track to read through the New Testament and Psalms twice and the rest of the Old Testament once by the end of the year. Yay! This is huge for me and I feel such a since of accomplishment each time I finish my daily readings. Want to join in? Check out the M’Cheyne Bible-reading schedule for the outline. Each month my blog continues to grow and I am loving all the amazing bloggers I have connected with. Reading the emails or comments left on my posts inspires me to continue to share my life and my passion for healthy living. Seriously, I get giddy reading comments on the blog or Facebook page.
Only two more months left before Caden turns one! My goodness time is sure going fast! I would love to answer any questions that you have regarding loosing baby weight, after baby workouts, or nutrition so feel free to send them my way. I am planning on doing a huge wrap in the next two months and want it to be informative as possible. Just leave a comment on this post.
PS…I am SUPER excited to share with you that I am now a contributor over at FitLife.tv! I would love it if you read my first post: 3 Yoga Poses to Relax and Renew Your Body And Mind. Thanks everyone for your support!
