Day 37 & 38

Today was Leighton’s first day at her “home away from home,” CFEO!!

On Wednesdayโ€™s, we wear ORANGE!

One of our awesome members gave her this as a gift ๐Ÿคฃ

Working out went better than I imagined it would this morning! I was going to wait until next week to go back, but I figured I should stop making excuses and get my ass in gear. ๐Ÿ˜œ

There’s a ton of information out there about what you can/can’t do and at what point you can/can’t do those things postpartum. I’m no expert in that realm, but I’m a strong believer that everyone is different and you have to listen to your body. Mentally, I want to do it all and push through. I also know that my body just went through a LOT and if I’m not smart about how I treat it while I heal, it’ll only hurt me in the long run!

Today’s WOD was:

15:00 AMRAP

20 Alternating DB Snatches

15 Box Jump Overs

9 Calorie Row or Ski

I did the snatches from the hang position since I didn’t want my lower back to tighten up and I subbed burpees for my box jumps because my pelvic floor isn’t quite ready for the Impact of jumping.

It felt great to sweat and get my heart rate up again — and huge thanks to L for the few pauses I got to take to put her binky back in when she fussed. ๐Ÿ˜œ

Yesterday to celebrate Leighton’s 5 week birthday we took a shopping trip to L’s favorite place, Target!!! (I love having kids to blame my bad habits on) She was so overwhelmed with excitement that she slept the entire time. ๐Ÿ˜‰ However, we did use the best product EVER and I have to share it with you guys. I posted this before with K but in case you missed it – this is a Binxy Baby!

  • It’s a cart hammock!! It holds the car seat now and when she’s a little bigger, she can sit right in it!! I actually found out about it when K and I were at target and another mom was using it. Yesterday when I put it in the cart another mom asked me about it and took a picture of it so she could order one, too…what I’m saying is, Target, you should carry these. You’d sell out!!
  • So I can fit all the things under her ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

    We also got a wonderful delivery!! Leighton’s hospital bunny came home!

    There’s a local lady that makes these sweet bunnies out of hospital blankets as a keepsake! She made Kensie’s a few years ago, too. Both are made from the very first blanket they were wrapped in once they were born! โค๏ธ (I washed them first…just to clarify. ๐Ÿ˜‚)

    Kensie about flipped when she saw it in L’s room. “That’s MINE!!!” Had to take a minute to calm her down and show her that they both had one. ๐Ÿคฃ #toddlerlife

    Both girls are still a little stuffy but Leighton has been much calmer and happier the last 2 days since her adjustment. The worst is having to suction her nostrils…thank goodness she’s too young to remember how much she hates me when I do it to her!!! Lol

    Trying to get her first though her binky so she can suck on her hand instead…

    And I’ll let your night end the same way ours did tonight, with a lovely performance by the artist herself. (and she’s made Maria give her “dos braids like Ana” every day this week at daycare…)

    Sorry for the noise and terrible video, I was burping Leighton ๐Ÿ˜‚
