Fit With Baby
I haven't posted in awhile. At first, it was because my doctor put me on "sleep rest", which meant that I needed to get sleep or he was never going to let me return to work. Eventually, I started getting more sleep, especially with the help of the Amby Bed. And I even started to get a routine going when it came to working out. I started getting up at 5:15 am and going to the gym to "prepare myself" for going back to work this week.|
However, getting used to being at work, staying up all day, and having my "brain running" took more adjustment than I thought, so I haven't gotten back to working out yet.
For whatever reason, though, I've lost 4 lbs, so I'm only at 194 now. I have around 10-12 to go before I'm at my PP weight (my weight fluctuated by 7 lbs of water weight daily, so I could wear the same size at anywhere from 177 lbs to 184 or so, lol). I think it's because I started drinking more water.
I noticed, one of the days I went to work out, that my sweat smelled really badly of ammonia, and I looked up online that that could be a sign of kidney or liver problems. I upped my intake of water and the smell went away, so maybe that's why I've started losing as well.
I don't count calories, I just aim to eat healthy, unprocessed foods as much as possible.
I'm hoping that next week, I'll get back to getting to the gym at least 3 days a week for a cardio workout. I do some resistence training at home too.
I'm reading something interesting. I got the book Outsmarting your Female Fat Cells After Pregnancy, and it explains that for the first year post partum, your body is all kinds of screwy because of hormones that no matter what you do, your body likes to hold on to fat. For the first six weeks, it's next to impossible to blast fat, and from there on, it gets increasingly easier and easier. This, also, would explain my recent weight loss as I passed the 6 week mark about 3 weeks ago (and that's also when my weight was stuck).
It's an interesting read.
