Post-Partum Progress and Food

by fitforthesoul in


Happy Sunday!!!  I just want to pop in and fill you in on my post pregnancy progress.  I’m warning you though, this post contains quite a few random things, and since food is one of the main features of this blog I’ll be sharing that as well. April 10-2013 (1 of 1)-4

1 Week Post Partum

2 Weeks Post Partum—Today

As  many of you know already, I was pretty active throughout my whole pregnancy and stuck with cardiovascular exercises and Ballet Body (see the exercise page for more info).  I’m not sure if working out made a vast difference, though it definitely didn’t hurt because I felt more mentally and emotionally stable, but I feel as though my stomach has been bouncing back to its {somewhat} original shape a lot quicker than I thought.  Even though I’ve been seeing several changes in my physique due to housing a little baby for 9 whole months, the changes haven’t been too drastic in my opinion.  It’s awkward to see my body doing all these weird things though!  And I’m wondering if I’ll ever look exactly like before???  Oh well, a woman can dream a little, right?

Food

Please excuse the fuzzy pictures, but these were taken with my phone since someone needed my good camera!

oats

Breakfast at 7:30 am—Overnight Oats with peaches, blueberries, coconut butter, and peanut butter

mojo

Mid morning snack--Mojo Bar around 10 am (one of my favorite bars around)

I also had lunch with my church family today but didn’t bother to take any pictures.  We had some delicious Filipino food and it was mostly sweet and sour veggies with fish, a famous dish called Caldereta, and chicken noodle soup.

yogurt

Snack around 4 pm—Greek Yogurt with strawberries, cinnamon Kashi, and coconut butter

Snapshots of Selah

I ended up going a bit camera crazy and wound up taking a bunch of shots of Selah.  Here are some of the ones I liked because she just looks so darn cute or downright hilarious, as you can see in the first picture.  Hah!

It was hard to position the lamb without her kicking it!

I think someone’s waking up from her nap, so I’ll talk to you guys very soon!  Have a wonderful rest of the day and a blessed start to the new week.

What subject matter do you love to take pictures of?

-I enjoy photographing food and nature, but lately I’ve been loving people the most!  I guess it comes with being a new mommy?

What are your go-to meals and snacks when you’re extra busy?

Do you sometimes get scared at the thought of being pregnant and going through physical changes?

-I have to admit that it used to somewhat freak me out at times.  The thought of seeing myself gain a lot of weight and not having control over my body was quite intimidating,

but my perspective started to change when I realized that a child is far bigger of a blessing than nurturing my own fears and desires.

Love,
