Even though I am a few days shy of being six weeks postpartum after my c-section, and my doc's appt isn't until May 1, I decided I needed to exercise today. I did a 30 minute Turbo Jam video. I am very out of shape, but it felt great!!! We'll see how I feel tomorrow, but it definitely put me in a better mood. I'm also working on eating better. With breast-feeding though, I do find I am more hungry. Trying to make better choices at least...

Thank you, peimum, for my beautiful siggy!

Turbo Jam is a lot of fun. Hope you are feeling okay today. I agree that breastfeeding definitely makes you hungrier. I was really hungry for about the first 12 weeks then it seemed that my body got used to the breastfeeding and I wasn't as hungry any more and was able to lose my baby weight.

Good Luck with getting back in shape. That's the only thing I don't like about having babies.

Thank you *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy

Good for you, Amy... Hope it wasn't too much. Eating better doesn't have to mean eating less, if you are making good choices. Breastfeeding takes a lot out of you.

The hungriness varies day by day. I find some days I'm just hungrier even if I didn't do anything extra. Go with it, its your body telling you it needs more! I think it might happen more frequently right before growth spurts

Glad you enjoyed yourself!

I think he's getting ready for another growth spurt (almost 6 weeks). I will eat more if need be, but healthfully also.

I felt pretty good today (no ab soreness), so I did Turbo Fire Low HIIT 20.

Thank you, peimum, for my beautiful siggy!

Glad your first day of exercise went well! Hopefully your 2nd day was just as good and you are still feeling good!
