Body After Baby: Halfway!!

We are halfway through the Body After Baby Challenge. That is both exciting and scary.

I have done really well with eating this week. I am really pretty proud of myself. I resisted a lot of temptation, because Nathan has been eating garbage all week. He keeps doing things like buying ice cream and making cookie dough, but I have been good and haven't eaten it.

I have gotten some cardio in this week also. I am not doing very well on the weight lifting/muscle toning. I need to work much harder on that for the second half.

I am definitely seeing some changes in my body. My clothes are not fitting any more, in a good way. My transition clothes, that I bought because none of my old clothes fit, but it was too depressing to keep wearing maternity clothes, are now too big. Woo Hoo!! Plus, I am feeling a lot better. I am happier with the image in the mirror and I have more energy (even on the days where I haven't gotten much sleep at night).

The most exciting news ... I lost 3 pounds this week!! Yes, I have managed to hit pre-baby weight!! I am ecstatic. I do still have a couple more pounds I would like to lose, but I wouldn't be sad if I could just maintain this weight.

The Body After Baby Challenge has been awesome. Head on over to Mama Notes and cheer on everyone else participating. Go Red Team!
