Que the Rocky music
I'm now officially six weeks postpartum & have the all clear to exercise again. I can't even begin to express how happy I am about this milestone. Working out is my sanity saver & let me tell you - I need it right now. It beats a beer every night or so. I can't wait until Bill comes home so I can go to the gym (which is literally 3 minutes away from the house) & hit up some serious cardio. I need to get the blood pumping & get an adrenaline rush (it sucks that I'm kind of sick & won't get the best workout ever). I just have to make sure that Carter is asleep since he freaks out for the entire time I'm gone & I don't want to think about him crying while I'm away.

This post is also the beginning of my post-baby body transformation. Bill & I agree that Carter is our last baby, so now it makes sense to start working on my six-pack abs again (well, as close as I'm going to get after having two kids). I'm posting pictures & stats every month to chart my progress. This also means that I have to start eating better & follow my own nutritional recommendations that I give my clients (which means, no sugar or beer on a regular basis). I hope to have met my goal in three months - by the end of January. Let's see how I do during the holidays!

*Stats*
Weight = 143 pounds
Body fat percentage = 31% (YIKES)

Neck = 13 inches
Bicep = 10.5 inches
Chest = 35.5 inches
Waist = 32.5 inches (GROSS)
Hips = 41 inches (EVEN WORSE)
Leg = 20 inches
Calf = 13 inches

Good grief you have like no fat whatsoever and you can't even tell you'd just had a baby 6 weeks ago. I would *love* to look like that at 6 weeks post partum!

You looked awesome while pregnant and still look great, since having Carter! That is totally awesome. I need to work on my abs, ha, I need to find them first. : )
