I'm Baaaaaaack

And boy do I have have stuff to catch you guys up on! Oh... 6 weeks worth of stuff really! My sweet Addison doesn't allow me much blogging time but I have vowed to be better during her naps :)

It will take me a while to catch you up, but I am dedicated to doing so over the next two weeks so I can get back into blogging :) I have missed it but really haven't been motivated to do it! I have so much to tell but wasn't really in the mood or didn't have the time!

But here we go :) It's time to play catch up (I promise to try and NOT overwhelm you today)!

1. Addison is wonderful. She is 6 weeks old and growing like a weed! At her 4 week appt she weight 9 lbs 5 oz. and was 22.5 inches long! Her clavicle is healing great!

2. I am healed :) I obviously tore when my precious 8.15 baby came out but I am all good now. I tore to a 2 but have healed wonderfully! Stitches are out!

3. You know what that means... I am working out again. I started working out THE DAY the Doc told me I could. I went to my 4 week checkup, he said you are good to go on workouts, I hit the gym THAT AFTERNOON! I was SOOO anxious to get back to the gym! CRAZED REALLY!

4. I started back on Weight Watchers this past Monday and we have great success so far! A little background on my preggo weight gain, etc! When I found out I was pregnant... I had just lost 25 lbs and went from a 10 to a 4/6! Well that weight quickly piled back on plus another 40 lbs! YES, that's right, I gained 65 lbs throughout the pregnancy! SCARY! I went from 145 to 210 in 10 months! I was devastated! But nothing I could do at that point! After I left the hospital, I had only lost 10 lbs (more devastation)! But over the last 6 weeks I have lost 32 lbs (half way there)! But I have MUCH left to lose! So I am back to running and lifting and being VERY good about my eating so I am hoping the other 33 lbs melt off SOON! I am in a wedding Jan 2! So, WWW posts will resume next week (once I catch you all up) :)

5. I have cut 5 inches off of my hair and it's really freaking me out :) (pics to come)

6. Birth story will be another post this week :)

7. Being a stay at home mom is what I was meant to be! Will I? We shall see!

8. Adjusting to being a mom has been challenging but wonderful and I think I almost have the hang of it :)

9. I love this little girl more and more everyday! It's amazing what God does between a mother and child! It's just such a special bond!

10. Here are some updated pics :)

Welcome back!! Addison is just precious!! I have been an off and on reader of your blog for some time, but have never commented for some reason, i love your blog! I just found out that I was expecting last month, right in the beginning of my attempt to lose about 20 lbs that I wanted to lose before I got pregnant! Oops! So it is nice to be able to somewhat relate to your journey. I'm looking forward to all of the Addison updates, and your birth story, I love hearing them (well, these days I just like hearing the good ones!)

Carrie said...

I'm glad you are back! That is so good that you are already back at the gym! You'll have your body back in no time!

Julie said...

Oh my gosh she is ridiculous cute! I am in love with that Halloween outfit! I just found your blog last night and I wasn't expecting you to be back today since you're busy taking care of your sweetie pie, but what a great surprise! Hope everything's going well with the baby and I can't wait to read the updates! xoxo

The Browns said...

What a sweet baby girl! I'm glad you are doing well. I have 7 more weeks to go before I have my baby boy :) I have gained 23 lbs so far, but I started out a lot heavier than you! I started out around 185 (ugh). I want to do Weight Watchers & I would love to get back down to 150-160 after I have our baby. I know I'll probably get up to 220-225 before I actually have him & that scares me! Anyways, you are beautiful inside & out & can't wait to read your updates.

I know that had to be hard on you to gain all that weight after losing it all, even though it was for an amazing reason, but GOOD FOR YOU for jumping right back into getting fit. I'm sure you'll have no problems. At least you know you can do it.. you've already done it once!

I've been doing WWW and have lost 13 pound=all the baby weight is off, but I was like you before you got pregg-trying to get those 20 lbs off! I'm almost there, and love going to the gym now! It is so much easier if you've been on WW before, you will do great!

Lucky in Love said...

She is just gorgeous! And way to go about already working out :) You are such an inspiration. And thank you for being so honest about your situation. It is so encouraging to me as a wannabe mama :) I like when people tell the truth!

GamecockQueen said...

She is so beautiful!

I can't wait until you start posting about WWW. Your dedication to working out really inspires me and I have been slacking lately, big time! You and I are the same height and weight, exactly, same dress size and everything.

This is a weird question, but do you feel like loving and caring for your furbabies prepared you to be a mother at all? I treat mine like such babies I was just wondering. Usually when people see me fussing over my furbabies they say "you will be such a good mother!" LOL I know some people woudl be offended that I would even ask such a question, but from what I've read you seem like you baby your furkids a lot too! :-D

Tiffany said...

I don't know how I missed a post from you!!! First off...I'm so happy you and Miss Addison are doing so well. She's absolutely adorable and I can't wait to watch her grow (even if it is only in photos).

Second, I'm so proud of you for being back at the gym and getting back on the "fit train". It will be so much fun and motivating to read your WWW posts!!!

Last (but definitely not least), I hope you & your gorgeous family had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I miss you friend!!!
