Body After Baby Challenge: Week Two


This week is the second week of the Body After Baby Challenge from Mama Notes. Last week's challenge was to drink more water. I did good and upped my water intake for the week. I didn't do as well as I hoped in the Diet Coke area but I did decrease it so that counts, right? I've tried to limit myself to one serving per day and I even went two days without one.

This week's challenge is to walk. I love to walk but it will definitely be a challenge this week. I cannot take walks with my preschooler because he runs off and he can climb out of a stroller so that idea is out too. I have a treadmill but he likes to walk on that too which is dangerous. My husband normally watches the kids so I can walk or we go as a family so one can watch the baby and the other can chase the preschooler. Unfortunately, he is working at least 60 hours this week so there is little time for his help. I am committed to losing the weight though so I will try to get in at least 30 minutes 3 days this week. I know it isn't much, but I'm being realistic. I will report back next week on how I did. It really does help that all of my readers are keeping me accountable!

Yep, I know what it's like to try to walk with crazy kids!

I, too, have an addiction to Diet Coke... and walks are sometime a struggle! My kids are getting to the point where they can unbuckle and stand up in the stroller, etc. It's getting kinda crazy!

Pop is so addicting!! It took me two years to get over my addiction. Way worth it though!!

Kids can make exercising hard. Best of luck!
