My new cookbook….ordered it from england haha! (yea im that strange) Hopefully it will teach me better recipes for vegetables than most cookbooks because it was written during WWII before a lot of processed foods were available and they were rationing so a lot of what they ate were vegetables.

 Im hoping to learn how to use vegetables such as beets,leeks, cabbage, etc better becasue they were used a lot back then and I have no idea how to use them. Also from just glancing at the recipes they seem very “clean”  with simple ingredients which is also good for health and budget. 


Caspian, the 7 week old, doing HIS exercises hehe! (tummy time and rolling over)

If he can find the energy to exercise today YOU can too! ;P

Feed Caspian

Do 10 squats with Caspian

Put Caspian on the floor and do 10 from the knee pushups  (to make sure I dont fall on him) above him

Keep him on the floor and do a 30 second plank

Put Caspian in his crib and do 25 jumping jacks

(run to the bathroom to pee before he starts crying)

Play with Caspian (also known as unintentionally making him scared out of his mind with stuffed animals….oops)

Then pick up Caspian and rock him until he almost falls asleep

Put back in crib and cross fingers….

if he falls asleep drink 8 oz of water, rest or do whatever I want, and repeat in 2 1/2 to 3 hours….

shhhh dont tell anyone I did exercises!

(I couldn’t stand it any more)

These are all done holding a screaming baby in an effort to soothe him to sleep with gentle movement…they were all done super slow.

20 squats (10 focused on glutes 10 focused on quads)

10 calf raises

10 butt kicks per leg

lots and lots of kegals (a curse on whoever invented them…icky!)

So I WAS down to 21%…..I am NOW 24%…..not bad! ;) Thats what I was when I firs started exercising consistently (last spring/summer) and I didnt have any boobs then haha!

My BMI is 18.5

My weight is 107lbs

(Because I cant exercise for another 3 and a half weeks I have nothing else to do but measure haha! )

The baby (who has a virus right now which is making life miserable for my husband and myself….so tired haha!) weights 8.3lbs (he was 6.11lbs when he was born on June4th)
