I know that most of you aren't here yet (but you will be soon!) but I just hit six weeks pp today. My doc cleared me to start working out at six weeks, so I'm going to start the Couch to 5K running program tomorrow. I've done it before, and it really does work to get you running without completely overwhelming you and making you hate running. Honestly, there are other exercises that I like a whole lot better than running, but most of those involve going to the gym which is kind of a large time commitment when your baby is little and still nursing frequently. I like running for the one and only one reason that you can bang out a pretty decent calorie burn in half an hour, and no drive time to the gym is required.
Anyway, so I'm starting that, and going to pay more attention to my food choices, just making sure they are healthy but not restricting amounts because I'm breastfeeding and don't want to mess with my supply. I also want to start doing some crunches and leg lifts to help my tummy muscles. They were still a bit separated at my drs appt, and my doc said that would help.
My goal is to lose 20 lbs by the time Reid hits his one year birthday. Anyone else want to do a support thread with me (even if you need to wait a little while until you're cleared to exercise or diet?)
