  • Daily report: did my mama-baby pilates class. Thankfully it was online so I could pause it and get back to it an hour later, after feeding the baby and setting her down for a nap. If it were an in-person class, I would have missed most of it. I also walked out to meet my friend halfway when she was coming over. For home…
  • Daily check-in: had friends over for brunch and it was great. Later another friend and his family came over to say hi and meet the baby for the first time. My fitness action of the day was walking halfway to the subway station with my brunch friends when they left. Home improvement action of the day: so many rounds of…
  • Steps 5.1. 9732 6.1. 4251 7.1. 11839 8.1. 7072 9.1. 3049 10.1 7347 11.1. 12229 12.1 3085 13.1. 5397 14.1. 7286 15.1. 6608 Daily report: did the walk to the voting station and picked up groceries on the same trip. I impulse bought some dried mango, and I think I found my new sugar craving snack. Significantly lower in…
  • Hipari Saturday PW 235,9lbs CW 235,6lbs Ugh, not a great week. I expect better. A loss is a loss, but having this much to lose means I should lose more than a pound a week if I want to be anywhere near my end goal at my goal time in September. First goal is 14lbs away: my final pre pregnancy weigh-in was 221.6lbs, so I…
  • Fitness action of the day: went for a long walk with another mom and our babies. Her baby is the one I’m donating my leftover breastmilk supply to, so they emptied my freezer on the same visit. Apparently in some religions babies who get milk from the same woman are considered kind of siblings and can’t marry as adults, so…
  • Fitness action of the day: took a slight detour on my way to the post office. It was gorgeously sunny, but it's so warm everything is melting into wet, slippery slush. May or may not have bought a chocolate bar while there (it's connected to a grocery store). Home improvement action of the day: plenty of chores, including…
  • @coblujay congratulations! That’s amazing! Daily check-in: today was a more restful day, but I listened in on an online group session for postpartum physical therapy. All the stuff for moms was kinda pointless for me and I knew it already, but they had some nice pointers about supporting babies in their motor skills…
  • Fitness action of the day: walking several laps around the mall trying to make the baby fall asleep, I guess. Also, it was warmer at night so we walked back home from the subway station instead of taking the bus. On the way there we took the bus because it was too cold. Home improvement action of the day: finally put away…
  • @Pupowl if that sunset doesn’t even count as a spectacular one, I want to move to wherever you live. @izzyred9400 I have a tens machine as well and tried it during labour, but hated it. Eventually just yanked it out and made do without. Also, for the leftover Christmas treats: would it help if you put them somewhere out of…
  • Daily check in for yesterday and today: yesterday was more of a self-care day fitness wise, took a long hot shower and did a couple of stretches, but otherwise just rested and started a new puzzle. I ordered it during quarantine but it wasn’t delivered until after. Today I did a mom-baby pilates class, so baby got her…
  • @Pupowl admitting the situation and deciding to deal with it is a major win! Hopefully you’ll feel better soon. @jennifersusanmcdougall the laundry episode sounds like one of those situations where you just have to laugh about it. Glad to hear you’re almost done with it!
  • @CasandraW yay for snow pants! That’s a major win! Also, it reminded me that mine probably don’t fit… well, I don’t have any plans that I’d need them for right now. Forgot to check in on my daily actions yesterday. For fitness action, I walked with my friend back to the subway station after her visit, and regretted every…
  • Hipari Saturday PW: 237.4 CW: 235.9 SW: 250 LTD: 14.1
  • Whew, this was a day. It started out amazing, as husband decided to watch the baby and let me sleep in after a rough night with her. I went on a long walk with two other moms and their babies, the weather was gorgeously sunny although it was cold. Then all hell broke loose, my other breastpump suddenly stopped working and…
  • Fitness action of the day: a couple of stretches while waiting for the toaster to pop out by bread. That’s it. Very busy day with dinner guests and a fussy baby, she was still upset about the vaccines yesterday. Home improvement action of the day: cleaning the place before our dinner guests came over, and doing the dishes…
  • @seeless25 I’ve tried a lot of recipes by Skinnytaste - I don’t know if she has stuff suited to your particular tastes, but worth a look. Another tip I myself am still trying to implement into my routines is something a dietician* told me a couple of years ago: if half of everything you eat is fruits, berries and…
  • Fitness action of the day: pushing the stroller in heavy resistance snow to run errands, and dancing while cleaning. We had some snowfall in the morning and pedestrian roads weren’t plowed yet, so pushing the stroller through all the mush was a challenge, even though it was gorgeously sunny when I was out. Pictures of the…
  • @coblujay could you share what you like about Apple Watch specifically? I have a Fitbit and I like it, but I’ve been considering switching to Apple Watch for a while now so I’d love to hear your thoughts on pros and cons.
  • Whoops! Steps: 30.12. 3318 31.12. 6324 1.1 9959 2.1. 3077 3.1 8318 4.1 3874 Looks like 3K is what i do without leaving home. Quarantine is a bi*ch.
  • Fitness action of the day: attempted day 2 of the 30 day yoga challenge. This one was very ab heavy as well so I sat on my mat stretching my neck for most of it. I think I might have to drop the yoga for a while. I found a youtube channel that has a lot of bodyweight exercise videos and even a dedicated playlist for…
  • Yeh, sizing is a crap shoot. Both letter and number sizing is so random it might as well have pictures of household appliances and "your size is the microwave oven" would be just as informative as the letters and numbers we actually use. This happens even in baby clothing, where vanity sizing shouldn't be a thing. My…
  • @Pupowl I agree with Frank, your photos are amazing and really draw the viewer in! Keep them coming, I would love to see more from your adventures! @CasandraW I’m with you on the squish! I don’t know you or your squishtory (ha!), but I recently gave birth after having a huge baby bump. I made it to 8th month with zero…
  • @frankwbrown if you’re interested, Adriene just started another 30 day yoga journey called MOVE! I started doing that, although I don’t even attempt doing all 30 days consecutively. Day 1 was nice and didn’t seem too difficult, except for my postpartum abs. If you’re interested in switching to that 30 day challenge instead…
  • Fitness action of the day: 45-minute walk with my baby in the stroller. This was the same route as the 50-minute walk a couple of days ago, but a faster pace and more resistance with the stroller as it’s been snowing and turning to mush. Home improvement action of the day: wiped clean the windowsills. Plan for tomorrow:…
  • Those Zumba videos look like something I'm definitely going to try! Reporting in for day 2 of my own January challenge: Fitness action of the day: completed day 1 of Yoga with Adriene's 30 day Move challenge! "Complete" is used broadly here as there were some things I couldn't do, but I just sat on my mat if I couldn't…
  • It’s a new month, and I’m back, yay! Looking forward to getting to know everyone a little, so here’s my introduction. I’m 30 and live in Finland with my husband and our two-month-old daughter. I’m rejoining the weight loss squad this month after having a rough couple of years with burnout and a difficult pregnancy. I feel…
  • @jessicakrall8 as I said, I’d like to rejoin the weight loss squad for January! You can put me down as a Saturday weigher, with a starting weight of 237.4 lbs. I’m not sure what my all-time high was postpartum, but 250lbs would be close enough if you’re still recording all time highs. It’s a gorgeous sunny day today, and…
  • Day 6 of quarantine: feeling symptom free, but exhausted for other reasons. We took on a little quarantine project of finally trying to teach our daughter to fall asleep in her own crib and to set her sleep schedule for something more sensible. Until now one of us has stayed up in the living room with her until she falls…
  • Covid update: a slightly stuffy nose, but otherwise symptom free already. Husband is still sleeping (and I’m going back to bed after pumping), hopefully he’s better too. We’re still in quarantine until next Tuesday, but healthy is better than sick. Today’s plans include cleaning, prepping our next grocery delivery order,…
  • Unfortunately, I have to agree. At this point I don’t give a squat about unvaccinated-by-choice. Instead I do care about vaccinated people with bad covid luck, people with other health issues that need hospital care, and those who are unvaccinated against their own will (allergies and other medical reasons). Here in…
