Tomorrow my baby is officially 2 weeks old! Isn't he just perfect!

I am very aware that I need to take it slow getting back into working out, but to be honest....I am so ready!!

I am especially ready to start running again, I can't wait to start training for another half! I am hoping to knock one out in the Fall!!

Anyways, I know I have several more weeks of taking it easy and healing before I can get started in the workout department, but I am happy to share that I am down 30lbs!

I gained about 55lbs while being pregnant, and I haven't been perfect on the eating scale post baby, but I have upped my game and started eating more healthy since having the baby.  That, plus nursing, and the natural losing of baby weight, and I am so excited to be down 30lbs!

Here is a picture of me the day I was headed to the hospital.

And here I am today!

I have been wearing this Belly Bandit off and on since having the baby.  I won it in a Facebook giveaway this past summer, and heard that these type of bands are very helpful on teaching your stomach muscles to go back to normal.  So I have decided to try to wear it as much as possible.  Although I was having some lower back pain the past week and a half, and the strong belt support felt like it caused more pain at times, so I didn't wear it all the time.  I do feel like it helps support me though.  And, the day after in the hospital when I put it on, it barely went around me.  Now I have stretched it to the end of the velcro, so that's a good sign.

Anyways, just thought I would update you all on where I'm at.  & I look forward to sharing my journey to my post baby body with y'all in the next couple of months!!
