I feel so ready to get back into a workout routine and I am starting up slowly. I feel really great physically and my recovery has been relatively smooth. The area around my incision line is still pretty numb but this is pretty common for abdominal surgery. I still also have the burning on the external sides of the internal incision but it is getting better. I took all my measurements this morning and overall I am actually pretty happy with where I am at this point. My focus is not so much loosing weight but rather shapening up and rebuilding of muscle.
I have dropped down into the 130s and while my ultimately goal is to get to 125lbs but I know that is not likely to happen until after I finish nursing - which God willing I will be doing for a long time to come. I love feeding my sweet baby girl. Breastfeeding provides such a special bond and I feel so fortunate to be able to care for her in this way.
My goal for now is getting my daily step goal back to 10K a day, make sure that I use my ab glider and to use hand weight for a light upper body workout. To kick my thighs back into shape I have started doing lunges (will add squats soon) starting with 25 a day and planning to add 5 each day.
Hoping that adding exercise back into my daily routine will yield a little more energy for studying!
