3 months post baby body goals

It’s hard to believe 3 months have already passed since our little man arrived. I’m excited to see how I did on my goals from 2 months. I haven’t looked at them since I wrote the post, and I’m pretty sure I forgot about one of them.

First, the pictures!

Looking back at the previous couple months I can start to see some changes happening, which is nice. Mostly in my arms and a bit in the middle. The tummy’s still squishy, but a little less than before.

Jacob needs to work on his picture taking skills… they’re a little blurry. Not cool Jacob. Not cool.

This is really the one you wanna see… baby!

Okay, enough distractions, here’s how I did on my 2 month goals.

  • begin running with Hunter in the stroller once, but hopefully twice a week (got the okay from his pediatrician!) – most weeks I’ve gone once with him, then once running intervals on the treadmill. Last week however, zero running happened
  • start to see some weight loss – I am! I’m down about 3 pounds from the month before
  • limit beer and/or wine to the weekend for special occasions (I think this will really help, I’ve been enjoying wine or beer many nights throughout the week) – I’ve been doing this too… maybe that’s part of the reason I saw a change in the scale
  • begin incorporating a short, high intensity workout at home once a week (less than 20 minutes) – totally forgot about this one, but I’m going to plan one for tomorrow morning!

I feel pretty good about how I did on my goals. Time for some new ones though.

  • Continue with the running and limiting of alcohol.
  • Start incorporating the short, high intensity workouts at home. They’ll be good for the weekends when I tend to not exercise as much, or just don’t feel like taking much time to exercise.
  • Prep more mini meals to easily and quickly grab. This is going to help me make better choices than a bowl or two of cereal every day when I get super hungry after waiting too long to eat. I need to get back on my eat every 3 hours schedule. Helps me keep my energy up and feel good.
  • Find the P90X DVDs and add in some of those workouts. I really like the challenge, and want to be able to do a pull up again.
  • My brother is doing P90X right now, so he has a pull up bar in his house. A couple weeks ago we were there and Jacob and him were being all guyish checking to see how many pull ups they could do. I tried to be all cool and do a chin up, thinking I still could, and I barely budged up the bar! At 5 months pregnant I could still do one, so for some reason in my head I thought I’d be able to. Wrong. Now I really want to be able to do one again, so that’s a goal for this month.
  • Since I’m now starting to see the scale move down, continue with that. Slow and steady wins the race. :)

Those are my goals… now time to find those DVDs!

How’s your weekend going? We’re seeing lots of family and friends which is super nice + the extra time with Jacob (love holiday weekends!) has been awesome.

Lastly, thank you all for your sweet comments on my new job + cutting down on posting. They warmed my heart. :)

Have a great one!

Heather
