Post Partum Update

Just "keeping it real" as fellow blogger Ree likes to say.

Body: I'm 5lbs from my pre-pregnancy weight. That means I have like 12 lbs to go to my "ideal" weight for myself. I can fit into a couple pairs of jeans again, though I have a fantastic muffin top. Woo! Spanx rock my world. I have like 3 tops that aren't old navy tanks that fit me, which is a bummer, but it's not like we have much to dress up for, and it's still hotter than hades in Atlanta. Tanks work well. All in all, I'm pretty happy with the progress, but totally jealous of my mom friends who seem to have a normal looking belly. Mine still looks like a deflated balloon. Ew. Yey for the tankini.

Emotions: Change from week to week. The couple weeks before we went to Michigan I think I was feeling pretty drained. Seeing all of my best friends really did something great for me though! I feel like I have a whole new outlook on life. I also feel a little guilty about how I may have portrayed motherhood as a lifetime of drudgery. Really, it probably is only a few (or 18) years. :) It really does have its positive side, which I've been experiencing more this past week. It's always good to recharge the batteries. And we get another chance to recharge in a week when we head to Minnesota!

Work Life (or lack thereof): Nope, I don't miss work. Not even a little. I have more than enough to do here, and I think that T.J. enjoys having me home as well. Sometimes it can get monotonous, but if that isn't true of any job, I don't know what is. And we have a few great activities that we do every week to break things up. It's also nice to plan travel schedules based on only T.J.'s schedule, instead of both. We were always busy at different times, which made things tough.

Goals: I'd love to start exercising soon - all we need is for T.J. to get home at a semi-decent hour! Nobody wants to go to the gym at 10pm after eating dinner and putting a baby down to sleep. Hopefully as September and October hit and things cool off, Joseph and I can go for long walks at least.
