After re-reading “The 12 Week Year” by Brian P. Moran and Michael Lennington, I decided to embark on a 12 week fitness challenge to get back into shape after childbirth. Here’s how week 2 panned out.

This week, I front-loaded my workouts which was a good idea because the baby spent the latter half of the week crying hysterically almost non stop for 4 days. Phew. My HP is 0!
I bought new shoes, but they didn’t fit the wide parts of my feet, so went back to good old Brooks! Got 2 pairs so I should be good to go for a while!
I might be cheating with the waist change, because I measured in the morning and my first measurement was at night. But I realized it’s much more consistent if I measure in the morning before I eat because it seems like my abs have melted, and when I eat, my stomach protrudes with all the food super quickly!
I will admit I’m drinking too much Starbucks. Need to stop that ? I’m pretty sure that’s not helping my case at all… But we have a 3 mile walk loop we take with the baby that gets us to and from Starbucks and… man, raising a baby is hard and we treat ourselves ?
According to Strava, I logged 26.46 miles of outdoor walks over 10 hours, 47 minutes of bike riding, and 1.53 miles of running over 20 minutes this week!
