Note to self.
It was a good week for this new mom last week. I’m just about to running 1.5 miles, four times a week. (Sometimes that doesn’t sound like much, but coupled with my walking commute, I’m to 16 miles minimum on foot per week!) I’m also doing daily planks to bring in my abs and strengthen my core. The first of my non-flowy pre-pregnancy clothes are starting to fit—few things boost confidence like fitted clothing! And finally, that deeper connection that Erik and I feel so well is returning, elevating us from mere roommates to lovers again. So much in life and relationships is correlated to how I feel about myself… Even though I am very nearly always happy, exercise makes me very nearly always ecstatic. Note to self.
Ok. It’s a bathroom pic. Gross. But I am just too enthused about this outfit not to share. See, I couldn’t get this skirt done up when I started work three weeks ago. But today I’m wearing it! Even though the scale doesn’t budge, my pre-pregnancy clothes are starting to fit and my distance in running is improving. Little by little I’m reclaiming my body from the trauma of pregnancy and childbirth!
