Here is Chloe at 4 months old. Things are going great! Nursing is going well, although I find when my weight falls under 115, my milk supply drops dramatically! It's strange that as long as I am between 115-117 I am able to keep up a healthy supply. I would love to be able to drop about 5 more pounds, but I will have to hold off until it's time to introduce solid foods to Chloe. Which will be 2 more months.
In the meantime I am really enjoying getting my strength back. Yesterday I picked up a bell to do some snatches thinking it was the 16kg (35lb) and realized that I had by accidently snatched the 20kg (44 lb)! Successfully achieved it but definitely felt HEAVY! Oh well, glad I can do it, but my joints are not ready for it for at least several more weeks. 8-)
My friend and client, Robin Duncan (in my first DVD), has really inspired me to try some hot yoga. I have been meaning to give it a try after I was done with the pregnancy, but like everything I was too busy. So I had to shift my schedule around. It's tough to get there but I have managed to do 2 weeks so far. I have tried yoga in the past, but never hot yoga. I have to say, it is the best compliment to kettlebell training I have ever found. I am already getting more flexible and my body feels fresh for every kettlebell workout I do. Each hot yoga class makes me feel like I am detoxing and washing out all the negative impurities in my mind and body. Just thought I'd share my new addition to fitness.
Core muscles are still not fully functioning from C-section but working on it with rehab exercises right now.
Here is a pic of me Four months postpartum.
I'm off to my hot yoga class and really looking forward to it!!!
