Put The Cookie Down!

Molly has miraculously started drinking from a bottle. This has been a great thing for the both of us. I am no longer having to feed her everywhere around town and having her starve while I am downstairs teaching piano.

But there is one really big downfall.

Unfortunately that big thing is my butt.

I have gained 5 pounds in the last few days.

I am no longer pregnant and no longer nursing so I can no longer eat what I want whenever I want. Farewell to the days when I ate Swedish Fish by the pound. So long precious Dorrito chips!

So, it's time to put the cookie down and pick up the carrot stick. Is this any kind of reward for having a baby?

I've gaine 11 lbs. in the past year and didn't even have a baby. I worked out for an hour and was feeling pretty good about myself and then the screen said "you burned 111 calories". Seriously! That's not even 2 rice cakes.

I'm struggling to figure out the maintain not gain equation after 18 months of eat as much as I want and never gain--we are talking chocolate by the large bag fulls each day. I think wet nurse is my true calling (more like wet nurse pumper).

Starting next month maybe we can actually work out when we go to the gym. : )
