Things have stalled. I’m counting calories (or at least was for a while but fell off the wagon over the holidays) but I’ve been bouncing around in the low 140’s for the most part. I’m not happy with that but I’m dealing with it for now. I’d love to go below 140 but it seems that as soon as I do, my milk supply tanks:( And since my goal is to get Lia to 6 months with breastfeeding I can’t yet give up!! Almost there (although, with how sick she’s been I think I need to keep it up until at least March so she gets those good antibodies).

My dilemma is this tho – we have a half marathon coming up in May (early May) and I’m not even the slightest bit in shape. I figure I need to hit training hard core by early March at the latest but it would really help if I started things now (because, let’s face it, I’m a lazy trainer and a lazy runner. There’s nothing “hard core” about me when I exercise. I’m definitely a fair weather athlete haha). I just haven’t figured out how to add exercise in without causing my supply to tank. I’m counting calories and thought I was making up the deficit (I worked out for like a week back in the fall:) ). I know people have done both I just can’t figure out how I can.

So anyways…that’s where we stand. I’ll check back in on this front next month.

  1. I am a firm believer that nursing mamas get a pass on those extra few pounds, and on having to work out. You’re the sole nourishment for another human being! I mean, whoa. That’s awesome!


  2. I have a very similar post drafted and almost ready to publish! Like, eerily similar. Five pounds of baby weight that just won’t go away (also hovering in the low to mid-140s) and a half-marathon slated for the first Sunday in May. I have at least started “training,” so I guess I have that going for me. I need to get my eating in check but I just don’t have time or desire to count calories and, well, I have no willpower.
