Now that the baby is out it's time to shed that baby weight. Theo is only three weeks old, so I have three more weeks until I can start seriously exercising again, but that doesn't mean that I can't work on eating healthy, avoiding the junk and going for lots of walks.
On Tuesday we walked out to Paisley's to pick up milk and eggs. Getting our milk and eggs from them is another good motivator to get me out to take a walk - if I don't go, Eli has no milk to drink. That's a problem! It's about 1km to their house, but it's not a difficult walk. The hardest part is lugging that huge, awkward stroller up and down the 21 stairs to our apartment! There's no room to store it at the foot of the stairs, so I have to bring it up every time. It's good though - just another reason to get me moving.
I tried something new for breakfast this morning, a recipe from Nourishing Traditions for Thin Herb Frittatas. Soooo yummy, I will definitely be making them again. Also a good excuse to use the herbs that are growing on my windowsill. I made these by whisking together in a large bowl:
4 farm fresh eggs
dried chives (fresh would obviously be better!)
2 tablespoons parmesan
2 tablespoons homemade sour cream
sea salt and freshly ground pepper
How many times can you use the word "fresh" in one recipe? Anyway, I heated my cast iron skillet, poured in some olive oil and added the egg mixture 1/4 cup at a time to create thin egg "pancakes." They were so so so yummy! I think this is going to be one of my new breakfast staples. I ate 5 of them, Eli ate one! He wasn't so keen on them, but once I put some homemade ketchup on his plate for dipping he was happy to finish it off. The kid loves ketchup. The book recommends eating these as they are, or putting them between bread and eating like a sandwich. That would be good too. Ooo, and I actually remembered to take a picture!
Anyway I've rambled enough. I suppose, since this is "Thinner Thursday," I should post some stats and goals here.
Total Pregnancy Weight Gain: 35lbs
Lost so far: 20lbs
Goal 1 (pre-pregnancy weight): 135lbs
Goal 2 (wedding weight): 125lbs
I have a cheap bathroom scale so my weights are kind of guesses, but close enough. I'm linking this post over to Thinner Thursdays on Mommy Miracles. Go check it out!
