Thursday Weigh in

So this week was a real success. I lost 2lbs which puts me at a total of 4.5lbs lost so far. Considering that I have to lose 44 lbs to get to my pre-pregnancy weight that means I'm 10% of the way there already, so that's a pretty great start to my journey and it makes me really excited for next week.
Daredevil baby. On the big kid gym herself.
In another journey my peanut saw our doctor on Monday morning and she's gone from 7lbs 13.5oz and 50cm to 10lbs 12oz and 57cm. She is in the 97th percentile for weight and 85th for height! So we have one big baby on our hands. This is different from Lillian too because Katrina is being considered on the WHO (world health organization)'s new breastfed baby chart that came out this year, and Lillian was on the old chart that measured both breast and bottle fed babies. But it's nice to know my baby is healthy.
Princess Katrina. Hmmm I'll take that toy.
So some highlights from my week are:
  • Katrina gave me her first real smile which I got while changing her diaper - it melted my heart.
  • I did not have a latte everyday and instead had some coffees (much lower calories).
  • I got back on the treadmill - twice!
  • I made my first recipe from my new cookbook - zucchini pancakes - and they were AWESOME!
  • Lillian has been talking up a storm and is learning a new word every few days.
 Some goals of mine for next week:
  • Have my first outside run.
  • Keep up the great eating.
  • Make another recipe from the book.
  • Have a great weekend with my family and take our first family shot.
  • Talk to my doctor about my abdominal pain and see if it's a complication from birth and if so when it will go away.
I hope everyone has some fun plans for the long weekend. We've got loads of things planned! I'm going running, removing the crib from Lillian's room, moving the rocks to the back where the shed is, spending time with my hubby, cooking up a storm. It will be a busy but great weekend.
