Breakfast: Yogurt (2 pts)
Drink: Water (0 pts)
Snack: Veggie soup (0 pts) and 2 pirouettes (3 pts)
Drink: Water (o pts)
Lunch: 2 cans of tuna fish (1 pt each for a total of 2 pts) in multi-grain pita bread (3 pts), with mayo (3pts) and mustard (0 pts)
Drink: Water (0 pts)
Dinner: Tombstone pizza (yes, for the third night in a row. I need to meal plan.) 5 cheese (7 pts)I was still full from the tuna in pita bread, so I didn’t eat the pizza.
Drink: Dr. Pepper (4 pts)
As you can see, I clearly need to eat a bigger breakfast because I’m having to pack in all my points later in the day. Not a good thing. I’ll be able to have more a variety of foods once we go food shopping next week, but for now, I’ll have to deal as best I can. As for exercise….come on guys, it’s Football Sunday. Who does anything besides yell at the T.V. on Sundays? I have therefore decided that Sundays will be my “off-day” for exercise. However, I did find some great articles today on workouts specifically for moms.
My favorites are:
Diastasis Recti Core Workout by Lindsay Brin. This woman’s story is incredible, from her experience with In-Vitros to getting back into shape after her pregnancies. Lindsay is an inspiration and I hope to be just as successful as she has been. This blog is wonderful because she provides videos that are easy to follow!
BeFit-Mom is another great site to visit. Not only does it have an explanation on exactly what Diastasis Recti is but it also tell you how you can even help prevent it or least lessen the severity. I’m read a few articles on BeFit Mom and I’ve enjoyed and learned from every single one of them. This site also proves information on signs to look out for when your abs are recovering from Diastasis Recti!
New Mother Advice is a good one too. It provides you with a list of exercises you should avoid if you have Diastasis Recti and gives some good information on the subject.
For the busy mommys, who don’t have Diastasis Recti, Parenting.com has a great 10 workout routine to help you lose the baby weight and get back to your old self.
I realize that for the few days before this one, I was lacking any real structure with my eating and exercising. I apologize for that, but I’m learning with you! I will continue to post my progress every day and, as promised, at the end of the month will post another picture as well as a report of my weight loss.
