So right before we got pregnant I had started cross fit, I hadn’t done it long enough to see any results, but I really enjoyed it. So today I started back( it was supposed to be last week, but instead I shifted Calvins wake up time to be 7 last week so I’m home in time to nurse and Joe doesn’t have to worry about getting ready for work while he’s home along caring for Calvin.) truthfully I almost bailed this morning. I couldn’t fall asleep after the dreamfeed last night, so I was up until 1130, then I woke at three genuinely not feeling well, and then I have to wake up at 430 in order to pump before making it to the gym. And really what kept me from turning on my alarm and going back to sleep wasn’t the three friend who I told id be there this morning, it was the fact that I set our coffee pot to brew a pot at 425, so by the time my alarm went off at 430, the coffee was already made. So I went. I had to cut the workout in half, mainly so id be able to function enough to come back tomorrow😉 but i am SORE! And its lovely. I go on vacation in three weeks to the beach, and realistically I know getting my body to where id like it is going to take time, but even just working out makes me feel more confident. I am excited that at least for the next six months or so I will be able to focus on working out. Last time I was into cross fit, I had to stop on two different occasions BC we were doing medicated cycles, and both times my RE wanted me to take it easy BC of the number of follicles/size of my ovaries, then in the tww with our iui(where I was actually pregnant) alot of what I read said not to let you body over heat, so i stopped then as well. But since we aren’t trying for another six months or so, it’ll be nice to just be able to work out. The gym did up ita membership cost, likely BC they changed locations and it is much nicer. I was $55/mont. Now its $75/month, but they give a 10% discount to teachers, so it’ll be $67.50. But in order to get my monies worth I am going to have to go m-f, and the occasional Saturday.
speaking of the mom bod. I did manage to find a bikini I feel good in. It is a high waisted bikini, and a nice top with good coverage and support. The top was super difficult and I probably spent about six hours total trying to find one. The issue is, my breasts are large. I went to Victoria secret, and tried on a 36d and dd, and ddd and spilled out of all of them. Size wise, in pants in a 8/10 right now(hoping to get to a 6/8) but I had to get a plus size bikini top from target Ava and Viv line. I ended up with 16 or 18(with the band tightened) and they are great. They just provide a bit more coverage than anything I had been able to find. So here is me rocking my mom bod. I’m smooshier than id like to be, but I feel good in this, and don’t think it is too off putting to bystanders.
