post pregnancy....deciding when to return to work....

me's Success Story

Our little Princess is here.....She was born on 1/2/13 and it has truly been a huge adjustment everyday for my husband and I. Sara is now 26 days old as I write this entry....and its almost time that I start deciding when to return to work. My meals have been adjusted to ensure that I hopefully do no cause Sara any stomach discomforts (no broccoli, onions, cabbage, limited beans, etc...) Due to some complications I had to have a C-Section so I have been very limited on exercise. I attempted some very modified cardio on 1/27/13 and it was surprising how uncomfortable it was...so I do truly realize that it will be a long road to "Operation Misty Recovery" but, it is doable. I have lost almost 25 lbs so far since delivery...but I need to lose 25 more to get to pre-pregnancy weight. Ultimately...long term - My goal is to lose 35 more though....so we will see where this goal is come summer. I must remember though that it is not all about that scale weight. BF% and BMI are even more important - so I will need to get that measured as soon as possible also. I am excited to get started. I am hoping to help other "mommies" get back in shape also... I am happy to add another life experience that will help me help others....
