It’s official. I fail.
It’s been a whole month since Madeline arrived and changed just about everything in our comfortable little lives… and it’s pretty obvious how my blogging time has taken a hit, along with everything else. Holy crap, I never would have imagined how time consuming these little buggers are! But that’s not what this post is about… because I’m refusing to solely be a mommy blogger. REFUSE, I tell you.
I actually wanted to talk a little about me and what I’ve been up to during the past 4 weeks. Liiiike, not cooking, for example. Or cleaning. Well, I did vacuum on Christmas Eve before my family came over, but only the front room where I knew they’d be hanging out, and only because there was visible debris on the carpet and it was kind of embarrassing and ridiculous… not like it actually needed vacuuming or anything silly like that.
The whole losing the baby weight thing is actually going pretty well, surprisingly. I’m going to be honest here — I ate like a freaking cow during the pregnancy (meaning, ice cream… every night) and managed to gain about 50 pounds. Insane, right? Well, with the breastfeeding and new diet of red licorice and peanut butter — not together, like it matters — I’ve somehow managed to lose 30 pounds in a month. Not too bad. I’m far from my size 6 pants and my stomach does have that oh-so-enviable extra inch of flab, but I’m dealing with my new body pretty well.
Okay, I totally just lied. I haaaaaaaate it and am having major fatty issues and absolutely cannot wait to be able to wear something that doesn’t give me muffin top. aslkdjalsdkfjalksdjfl;askdjf. Shopping today did make it a little better though. Cute new clothes will do wonders for your mental health. This is why I aim to shop for a new outfit 4 to 5 days a week from now on. Because sanity is important to me.
Anyway. Here’s a video that might make you gag. Enjoy! (Me + no makeup OR bra on the internet… I can’t believe I’m posting this…)
