Today was Leighton’s first day at her “home away from home,” CFEO!!
One of our awesome members gave her this as a gift 🤣
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. 😜
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:
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. 😜
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. 😉 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!
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! ❤️ (I washed them first…just to clarify. 😂)
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. 🤣 #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
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 😂
