Dairy Love and Baby Pushing

Just in case anyone was wondering…. today I had milk in my coffee for the first time in months.  I also had a Skinny Cow ice cream sandwich, which are way better than I remember them being.  I need room in my freezer, so someone has to eat those things, and it might as well be me.  I had forgotten how rich and creamy life could be.

My right boob is still massive and throbbing as I wait for it to shrink back to my previously small size.  My left boob is neither massive nor throbbing.  The size difference is laughable, I mean one is like a B and the other one is like a D.  I’ve been sucking down Sudafeds to try and dry up everything in there (some people claim this works), but like most things in life, it doesn’t always work when you want it to!  

Baby H is still a standing baby.  He’s determined to stand as much as he possibly can.  He’s also determined to eat as much as he can.  I couldn’t believe how much he ate today…. like 5 baby servings of solid food and then he had some more when he came home and he drank All of his bottles down to the last drop.  I packed him: 2 servings of peaches, 1 cube of sweet potatoes, 1 cube of green beans, 1/2 a leftover squeeze pack of baby food, and oatmeal cereal.  I remember when I thought that 1 ice cube worth of baby food seemed like a lot, that seems like ages ago.  1 cube was a lot when baby H was just a sitting immobile baby.  I make my own baby food and freeze it in an ice cube tray – 1 cube is 1 serving, in case anyone was wondering what I am talking about with “cubes”.  I highly recommend making baby food because it’s So easy, way way cheaper than buying it, and I think that it’s more nutritious but that’s just my opinion.

Sunday on my weekend walk with the baby in the jogging stroller and the dog, I did a little running.  We’re talking like: very little running, because I am ridiculously out of shape right now.  We walked to a school and then I did loops around the big parking lot.  H fell asleep right away, and the dog jogged right beside me the whole time as I pushed like 30 pounds while huffing and puffing.  Needless to say, I’m sore today in muscles that haven’t been used in a year.  Stroller pushing is no joke!  Those things are so effing heavy.  The point of that running is to try and bring some muscle back to my body.  I’m at my pre-baby weight, but my butt is like pancake flat and there no muscle tone to be seen except for in my arms (from carrying H around).  I really only have time to do this on the weekends anyhow, so it’s going to be a very long and drawn out process – much like pregnancy.

Speaking of jogging, I got an UP band on Friday and I Love it.  It’s so much better than my Fuel Band!  Something about the social aspect of it is more motivating.  It’s basically a step counter, food tracker, sleep tracker, and a good looking band, all combined with social media – but not the annoying kind of social media.  Anyhow, if I’m sure that I’ll be talking about it more.  As of right now, I think it’s really fun and cool!  Three weeks from now, who knows…
