Body After Baby Challenge


It's the first check-up post for the Body After Baby Challenge over at Mama Notes! I did decently. I have been trying to up my water intake which I have been doing pretty well with. I have been trying to keep a pitcher of Crystal Light in the fridge to help with that. I have a hard time just drinking plain water all day long. This helps A LOT. I know there is sugar and a few calories involved, but a heck of a lot better than soda, that's for sure.

Okay, so down to the numbers. I took my measurements on Dec. 31st and they were:

Bust: 35.5"
Waist: 32"
Hips: 39"
(I blame Baby Girl for those numbers, by the way, in case you were wondering.)
Weight: 126.5 lbs.

Anyway, my wonderful hubby got me a Wii Fit Plus as an early birthday present on New Years Eve (which is where I took my weight and will continue to do so for consistency's sake). We both are having a blast with it! It may not kick my butt like the 30 Day Shred, but I have more fun with it and it keeps me coming back so it technically works better than the 30 Day Shred CD does sitting in my DVD holder.

I will be honest that I haven't gotten on every single day, but I was on for 50 mins on New Years Eve, and about a half an hour on the 1st, 3rd, and 5th. As of yesterday (Jan. 5th) I weigh 123.2 lbs! That sounds great and all, but I have to remember that weight does fluctuate from day to day... plus Mother Nature just left after her monthly visit so that helps too. BUT that doesn't mean I'm not proud of myself for those few pounds! It just motivates me to do just as well, if not better, this coming week. My body tends to keep its weight really well so I just need to stay off my butt and stay active and I can reach my goals.

Head on over to Mama Notes to support and get inspired by the other wonderful people who are participating in this challenge!
