So now the baby is here I need to get back into a workout routine. I have no ambition. Does anyone have any ideas. I have pilates that I love but I just can't find the time to do it. So I have a few options. I have a treadmill and a total body workout machine. Niether really are tempting to me. I'd rather make chocolate chip cookies with Sydney. I guess that is why I need to workout in the first place. So I am calling out to all of you for ideas for fun or effective workouts you have found. Especially one condusive to 2 kiddos and a fulltime job. Oh and good diets. I could use some good tips on healthy eating. Monica.......your the me. Ok.

I took Rowyn to the Dr. today and she is 12lbs. Holy man. She is a cute pudge. I love how she sinks into her fat wrinkles like a wrinkle pup. I call her Roby Doby, which Sydney has interpreted as Doe Doe. I love kids. I love eternal families. I love this smily stage.

I will post pics soon.

You have to find something that you totally have fun doing. I love yoga, volleyball, bike riding so those are the things I do when I really want to get ambitious. Plus watching the Olympics has really made me realize how flabby I am. I want abs like Kerri Walsh! Fresh fruits and vegtables are my staple. I have good size breakfasts and lunches with a smaller dinner and don't eat after 8:30. This little routine helped me lose 5 pounds last month. Everybody is different, so you have to find something that works great for you. Sorry for the book of a response! Jen

Don't get me started. Go get some whey protein (chocolate or vanilla) to make a breakfast smoothie. Put 1/2 c skim milk, frozen fruit (strawberries or mango-brain food, tons of vitamins), 1/2 c fat free vanilla yogurt(acidophilus) and 1/2 scoop of whey protein. Have this for breakfast, with one or two slices of turkey bacon. Protein for breakfast, salad for lunch and some carbs and protein for dinner. Fruits and veggies for snacks. Make sure you eat enough if you are nursing.

Don't forget the ice in the smoothie. Give yourself a break-Trisha, you just had a baby.
