May 2

This morning we weighed ourselves with the Wii Fit before doing our Shred. Despite my recent lapse in healthy habits I’ve actually lost about a pound and a half. Yay! That means I get to move my little runner icon above. :) I’m planning on eating oatmeal every morning, or close to every morning. It should help keep my milk supply up while I’m losing weight. The good news is that Lucy isn’t dependent on milk like an infant is. So I’m betting it’s probably, actually OK if I do lose at the rate I was losing a month or so ago. Most breastfeeding information and guidelines are designed for moms nursing babies, not toddlers, because, unfortunately, there aren’t a lot of moms nursing toddlers in the Western world. So there probably haven’t been many studies done on the mom/toddler nursing dyad. And, just in case my supply takes a dip, I’ve got the oatmeal to help combat that.

Day 2 of the Shred was, not surprisingly, a bit painful {helloooooo sore muscles}! But we pushed through. We know that our endurance will build up and that, in the end, it will all be worth it.
