A Collection of Random Thoughts…
I continue to think about how I’m going to get my prebaby body back and I started to wonder just how many calories would a new mother need. I’ve asked my dietician but haven’t heard back yet so I’m making my own calculations. Prior to pregnancy, working out about 5 times/week I was consuming around 1750 calories. I’ve heard that breast feeding burns an additional 500-700 calories so I’m thinking if I can stay around 2000/day, I should be able to lose a pound every 1 week and a half or so.
Why do breast pumps have to be so expensive? The one I want, The Medela Freestyle Hands-Free Breast Pump
, is $380. Yeah, $380. Is that ridiculous? Here are some of it’s amazing features…
- Small and lightweight design that’s powerful enough to use every day. Single or double pumping.
- Rechargeable battery provides 3 hours of pumping time.
- Exclusive 2-Phase Expression® technology to get moms more milk in less time.
I really do like the fact that it’s hands free. I’m figuring I’ll be pumping at work a lot and as I’m sitting in the “New Moms” room, I could actually be relaxing if I’m not having to hold these up.
What should we buy first? A new camera or a piece of art uniquely created for our little one. I want both but obviously money doesn’t grow on trees so we are going to have to make some decisions. Oh and I also want a new TV for the treadmill in the basement.
I’ve gotten through 3 workouts this week and certain exercises are starting to fall off my workout. Certain shoulder and leg exercises can’t be done safely anymore. Luckily spinning is still ok and the stair machine seems to treat me ok. I keep looking at these routines online for pregnant ladies but they don’t seem to provide the challenge that I need. This might be a long eight or nine weeks.
