All Sorts of Random...

My mind is all sorts of jello, just like this post:
1. My house has been taken over by someone who weighs a mere 7 (and something) pounds...how has this happened? Walk in our front door and you'll find her stroller, car seat, diaper bag, activity mat, bassinet, bouncy seat, and a changing station all in our formal living room-glamorous, huh? We are turning into Babies R Us around here.
2. Weather in Nashville has been absolutely amazing...we took little bit on another walk around the neighborhood this weekend, which was a success, and Jeff and I plan on doing it as much as possible. We may not be able to take her out to "public outings" yet {our doctor recommended no mass public interaction for 4 weeks}, but we can certainly take little drives/walks here and there to get some vitamin D.

3. The house has smelled like a florist ever since we came home from the hospital...from friends, family, and work colleagues sending such gorgeous arrangements, it has been so pleasant to have happy flowers all around our abode as of late.
4. I am itching, and I mean itching to get back into the gym. I've got hand weights that I try to use every other day or so to keep my arms in check, but my legs are ready to be put back into motion. I am hoping I can inch my way back there soon because I need some 1-on-1 meditation time with the treadmill...gosh I have missed it so much!
As for those of you that have inquired about the pound lossage so far, as of this morning, I have lost 20 of the 29 pounds I gained with little bit. Honestly, I can't believe it has fallen off so quickly...some I blame to my lackluster appetite and my inability to eat when I have a free moment, but I am happy with the progress so far. Everyone keeps telling me the last 8-10 pounds are the hardest to get off so we'll start working on that soon!
5. Opry Mills has officially reopened! Bring on the spring time shopping...JCrew Outlet, BCBG, Michael Kors, Janie and Jack, Off Fifth-good thing someone's stroller has more than adequate storage space for shopping bags!

6. DVR is my new best friend..once I get peanut down for naps, I get to catch up on all my favorite shows that I'm not able to watch during regular hours-thank you technology for keeping this non-sleeping mother semi-sane ;).
7. Another Monday, which means another new week of my new "routine". I'm excited about all sorts of activities this week...my grandparents coming over to watch Caroline so I can get my hair done, CC's 2 week checkup, my new blog design being installed, and then Easter weekend!

Have a great one my friends ;)

  8. Don't believe everything you hear about weight! Mine fell right off by week 3ish I was UNDER my per-preg weight. On the gym I was very excited to get back but I couldn't do my full work out until the baby was sleeping longer periods ... So dont get discouraged if after 30min your exhausted it's hard to function on little sleep!

  14. 20 pounds already?! Go you! That's so great!
    And I'm LOVING the good news about Opry Mills! I was beginning to worry that it would be closed forever. Looks like it's better than ever, too! And I'm secretly jealous of women with strollers at the mall, all that SPACE to hold your bags! Sigh.

  15. Isn't it just amazing how much stuff little one's use? Just wait till it's toys. My 18 month old has trains, cars, blocks, you name it spread throughout my house. It looks like a jungle!!!

    Congrats on the weight loss. You are doing FABULOUS :)

    Sounds like a fun week and weekend ahead. Have a great Monday!

  16. Its such a thrill to see the weight disappear, isn't it? Owen is 11 weeks and I'm still carrying about 7 extra pounds, but it has been so hard to get to the gym--I mean who has the time or energy??

    Hope you have a great week and that your little one continues to nap so you can get some rest and relaxation!

  17. it sounds like you are doing an awesome job!

  18. Okay, so I must ask... Are we calling her CC or Caroline? I see CC a lot and think it's darling, but love the name Caroline. Maybe CC is just a mama/baby nickname. If so, it's absolutely precious!!! I love reading about this journey of yours :)

    did you work out during pregnancy? i don't have kids yet, but i am hoping for them in the next year or so.... but i have set a goal for myself to lose 25 more pounds before i get pregnant. i want to be in tip top shape BEFORE i get pregnant so i can work out during pregnancy.
