5th Week Post Partum and back to part time work

Sunday: Nothing of significance. Gained one pound after the inactivity of the weekend and all the eating. Such hunger when nursing; I had forgotten how much hunger there is with breastfeeding, much more than when pregnant.

Monday: While baby wearing Lupe, two 15 minute walks and two 10 minute walks.

Tuesday: Back to work! 6:05 AM 10 minute brisk walk, ran 2 hills, one set pushups,  1 set lunges, and 10 minute run.7:15  35 minute walk.  8:15  15 minute brisk walk. Later in day three 10 minute walks and one 15 minute walk all while carrying Lupe.

Wednesday: 2 sets of pushups (5/7 on toes), 2 sets one arm rows.  25 minute walk (carrying Lupe and pushing stroller).One 10 minute walk followed by a 15 minute walk.

Thursday: 15 minute brisk walk followed by 5 minute run to Cadman Plaza (2 loops around park), 5 minute run (total 30 minutes), stretch for legs. 7:15 AM 30 minute walk, leg stretches. 8:15 AM 15 minute brisk walk.  Later in day two 10 minute walks to Cadman plaza carrying Lupe and pushing stroller.

Friday: 6:15 AM 15 minute brisk walk. Later total of four 10 minute walks and one 15 minute walk, most of them while carrying Lupe.

Saturday: Scootercise! 1 hour and 10 minutes run while Mateo rode his scooter. Did two sets of jumping jacks (too soon, I need to do more Kegels to get those muscles strong again!), two sets of lunges. 35 minutes of the time was really running, the other half was jogging and being “pulled’ or pulling Mateo on his scooter. In the evening I did Kegels and some abdominal strengthening still focusing on visualizing the diastasis closing.
