I'm behind on posting this! But I seem to be behind with everything since becoming a mom. Oh, motherhood :) Anyway, for week 5 I weighed in at 217.4. That is exactly one pound down from week 4. Not too impressed, but a loss is a loss.
40 weeks pregnant vs. 5 weeks postpartum
(Please excuse the lack of makeup :)
This week I cooked with my George Foreman grill a lot more. I made grilled chicken breasts, ham steak and turkey burgers. I will usually eat my protein with brown rice or some kind of frozen veggie. I've been drinking a ton of water, and of course still breastfeeding. I've also found that my 12 pound baby makes for a great weight for squats :) Usually when he's fussy I bounce (squats/lunges) around 'shh-ing' him. That's about the only physical activity I'm getting in lately :-/ (I will explain the lack of exercise in my next weigh in, week 6)
Jordan ended up buying a Wii with his Christmas money. I bought the Zumba Wii game so I will be giving that a shot. I love Zumba, but making it to the gym hasn't been possible lately. So, I will be making a fool of myself at Zumba in the comfort of my own living room :)
I'm still wearing my maternity jeans which is embarrassing to admit. My pre-pregnancy jeans (size 16) zip and button, but are still leaving me with a serious muffin top. Not pretty at all. It can only get better though, right?...
I'm going to wrap this post up with a photo that's sure to leave you with a smile...
