A mini workout, Cracker Barrel, and a new way to get fit

Hi Everyone!

I am super exhausted today.  AB decided she only wanted to sleep about an hour at a time last night.  Each time she fell asleep in my arms, but decided she was awake and ready to party when I put her in her crib.  It seems that some days (and nights) all she wants to do is eat.  Hopefully tonight will be a better night for everyone.

Our weather this morning was cold and windy and looked like rain.  Instead of taking a walk, I decided to do a mini workout inside.  The workout consisted of:

  • 30 jumping jacks
  • 20 knee raises (on each side)
  • 30 jump ropes (when you pretend to jump rope without actually having one)
  • 20 squat jumps
  • 15 pushups
  • 30 situps

I repeated the workout 3 times and worked up a good sweat.  Since I haven’t really exercised since January 11th (2 days prior to giving birth), this was actually quite hard and I will be sore tomorrow.

After I showered, we all headed out to get breakfast.  Ok, we ate breakfast foods but it was lunch time by this point.

Annabelle is stylin in her tights and boots today.

We ate breakfast at Cracker Barrel.  There aren’t too many choices in our town and CB sure makes good pancakes.  Chris and I both ordered the Mama’s Pancake Breakfast with eggs over easy and turkey sausage.  Since I am still getting used to taking pictures of everything, please imagine the eggs and turkey sausage that were once on that plate :).

I am super excited for this weekend!  Since I go to the doctor on Thursday and will hopefully be all clear to get sweaty, I am joining my running buddies for a run on Saturday morning!  I know that I will have to start slow since it’s been about 10 weeks since I did any running, but I am more than ready to get back to it.

Chris and I will also be starting this on Friday…wish us luck.

Since we have AB now, I figured it would be great to have something we can both do at home without needing any equipment.   I will be posting before and after pictures to show our progress!  Ok, I’m pretty sure Chris will not support this but I will post my pictures at least :).

ANY OTHER EXHAUSTED NEW MOMS OUT THERE?
