So, I had hoped to have updated by Friday but as sometimes happens, days just get away from me. I'm sure you all have days like that too!
Last week was fantastic, my energy was high, my workouts were fat blasting lol and my little man was having a good week.
I am breastfeeding but have decided to give him a top up bottle of formula at night. Which means he has been sleeping for 5 or 6 hour blocks and I am able to express milk for when I am away from him.
I had my first couple of hours away from him last night... I went and did a spin class and LOVED IT!!! Oh how I have missed those classes and even just walking into a gym. It did feel a little strange driving to the gym and not having him with me but he had a nice night at home with daddy.
Another strange feeling was after I finished the class I went and did my shoulder workout. To tell you the truth I was a little nervous about going into the "boys room". It was packed full with the usual guys (no chicks of course) and I hesitated!!! I have NEVER been nervous but last night I toyed with the idea of just getting into my car and heading home. I think because it is that I am not liking what I see in the mirror at the moment. My hips are wider, my belly isn't tight, my butt is bigger...the truth is I am just not my normal self.
BUT, I choked down my silly feelings and walked in there with my head high and once I got started, I don't know why I was thinking like that in the first place. Its where I belong!!!!
