So it's Monday, which means I do a Project Fitness Update, and.... it ain't too shabby. I'm within 6 pounds of my pre-pregnancy weight! I'm hoping to get that off in a month.
I actually can't say that I know how I managed to lose 5 pounds in the last 2 weeks. I wish I did know. I know the following:
- Hannah now weighs 20lbs and 5 ounces. I lift her up probably about 50 times a day.
- Hannah is now waking up at around 6:15 each morning (though of course we pray that doesn't continue for long. Mama needs her Alone Time in the morning to drink coffee, meditate, write, etc). But it is what it is for now. Who knows, maybe tomorrow she'll sleep in till 7:30. Knock on wood. But anyway, what it means is that we have very long mornings together before I start work. We go for a walk around our lake - all three miles, pushing the stroller on a hilly path - the majority of days.
- We go to bed really early. It's almost 9:30. That's my bedtime. We start bath time at 7, and then put her to sleep at around 8. Then a little quiet time, and then bed. What that means is that I don't do a lot of late night snacking.
I guess those three things are combining to speed up my metabolism or something. I don't know what it means. But I'll take it.
