Fit Friday: Mom Edition

Hey there, everyone! Happy Friday!! My baby girl will be one month old tomorrow and I can’t believe how much she has changed already. She is more aware and I love reading and singing to her. Her eyes get so big and she is so perfect!

We have had a hard couple of days, as she cries often and wants to nurse constantly. I think she is going through a growth spurt!

As far as staying fit I am doing a pretty good job considering the lack of sleep.

I have been doing my best to eat healthy, and add in extra snacks throughout the day because breastfeeding makes you hungrier.

What I’ve been eating….

Salmon, mushrooms, and onions.

The most delicious salad from Northstar Cafe.

Buffalo ranch chicken (made in the crockpot) and veggies.

Frozen garlic chicken and pasta meal.

As far as snacks go, I have granola, nuts, fruit, healthier cookies, almond butter….

I weighed the other day and I am 6 pounds from my pre pregnancy weight.


I went to the gym for the first time in a long time and it felt amazing! I walked the treadmill, did the arc trainer, and stair climber for a total of 30 minutes.

At home, I have done the elliptical and barre classes with light weights.

I typically workout during her naps, or when my husband is home before he leaves for work. It just depends on when the little one wakes up!

My husband and I are having our first date night tonight since she has been born. We are going to dinner and then seeing Captain Marvel. I am so excited to have some time with just us, but I know I will miss her like crazy.

That’s all for today! Have a wonderful weekend!

With love,
