Happy Hump Day you guys,

(post contains affilaite links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affilaite LInks-not sponsored)

I am working all day everyday on our downstairs Christmas decor plus the table set up for Emilia´s baptism on Saturday. I am all about decorating very classic this Christams season. Most of my decor is white and gold this year.

The last few years I opted for a lot of color but I am pretty happy how it turns out this year. Head over to my Instastories for a peek at my tree. 

This months has been full of activities and it was actually really nice cause we dialed back a lot since the last lockdown. November won´t be as fun as the beautiful fallish month of October cause we can not go out to eat or meat with other people. Hopefully it gets better again for Christmas season.

Happy Thursday you guys,

the weekend is near I can practically feel it although I don´t have much of a weekend cause Emilia isn´t taking a break but it is nice to slow down for three days and have my husband around to do things together. 

But let´s talk about this fabulous blow-up pool I ordered for our garden. It has been THE investment for this year and I am not quite sure what could top it. It is our most used Summer accessory and the whole family including my mom loves it. We have used it nearly every day since the weather has become incredibly hot.

Having an iced coffee and sitting in the blow-up pool. It is the simple life in times of a pandemic that makes our day. 

The blow-up pool has been an amazing amazon buy after seeing it on Kathleen Barnes Instagram. I also got the cover cause it is under our fruit trees which means lots of dirt in the water.

Bathing suits like the one I am wearing above have become a huge favorite of mine and this love has only grown over the last few years since they are getting more trendy and pretty. Also they are my best friends after having a baby. They suck in the places that need it most and still look fashionable and pretty.

I am now off to bed. See you tomorrow probably after we are home from a delicious breakfast. We do as much as we can outdoors to enjoy our Summer without getting on a Summer vacation. Travelling with a baby and Covid is just too much for me so we focused on making an outdoor oasis.

Hi you guys,

(post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links-not spnsored)

it is now exactly 4 and a half months after Emilia´s birth and I started to get back to working out and loosing that baby weight. To be honest first of all I thought it would bother me more that I had most of my weight still on but it absolutely didn´t and I was also busy with a newborn so also no time to bother. The other thing was breastfeeding. With full time breastfeeding I heard that all your extra baby pounds will come off quickly but they didn´t move at all so I decided to start working out again. Although I had to wait a little longer because of my postpartum recovery.

Postpartum Recovery

This might be TMI for some so feel free to skip if you dont´want to know.

I had a second degree tear after giving birth and also got hemorrhoids from pushing plus a bruised coccyx brom my intense back labor. This wasn´t the best combo given a quick recovery but it went better from there than I thought. I probably really helped going on walks a lot.

My tear wasn´t as disruptive as I thought and besides me not able to sit up for a long period or get up quickly from a seated position it was okay. I stopped bleeding after about 10 days which is normal but not very common as the midwife pointed out so this definitely was a win. Also my uterus shrunk down pretty fast to its normal size. To be honest postpartum recovery hasn´t been pretty at all but it did not bother me that much. It took its time and now everything is and feels normal again.

I was cleared for working out at my six weeks appointment but had to wait much longer because of my coccyx. I could not sit comfortable for longer periods so there was no way I could sit on the hard seat of the stationary bike (and yes I could have gone outside to run but I hate working out and running is the worst of it). I waited until 3 month after delivery and then begann to #getbackinshape.

Fitness Journey Part I

So where to beginn…

In total I gained 16 kg during my pregnancy and lost about 5 kg right away through birthing our baby. After that I didn´t get on a scale for a very long time but when I did right before starting to loose weight I still had 10,9 kg to much. So I did not loose any pounds at all with breastfeeding. 

I still have the insulin resistence allthough the gestational diabetes has gone so loosing weight is even harder. For me this means I have to cut out about 95% of carbs to even start loosing weight. To be honest I was very disengaged and overwhelmed by that but I started little.

My routine now contains a warm glass of water with a spoonful of apple cider vinegar on an empty stomach as it is supposed to kick start your metabolism and also has other great benefits

Then I go on and make myself breakfast containing two eggs sunny side up plus some bacon and one piece of protein bread with butter and a drop of honey. After my cup of coffee and my morning pumping session I hop on the stationary bike for about 45 minutes. 

I have been doing this every day of the week so far with small exceptions like doctor visits. On the weekend I trade my bacon and eggs for french toast but other than that this stayed the same for the last few weeks.

Since I rarely eat breakfast before eleven a.m. I skip lunch and just have a little snack in the afternoon like greek yoghurt, pineapple and some nuts or I eat leftovers from dinner the night before.

For dinner I eat normal but carb free which means steak with vegetables or fish with a side salad or the inside of a burrito without the bread (burrito bowl). We do get take-out too some times and it also works great. I just leave the carbs for my husband to eat.

This has worked wonders for me and to this day I have already lost 4,9 kg which I think is amazing. I noticed my belly get slimmer and also my leg are getting back into their shape which means I can already fit into many more pairs of jeans than a few weeks ago just in time for Fall. 

Of course I keep going because I still want to loose six more kilogramms. My goal is to have my pre-baby weight back in time for Christmas. Will see how this goes. 

If you have any questions on anything feel free to ask.

As always thanks for stopping by. See you tomorrow.

Happy Friday you guys,

I am currently sitting at the doctor´s office taking my after birth 3 hours glucose test and waiting for it to pass. Hopefully everything is back to normal and the gestational diabetes issue hasn´t turned into a regular diabetes issue. Fingers crossed and hoping for the best over here.

Since I love a good fashion and/or beauty challenge I decided to go ahead and challenge myself to not buy a single piece of clothing including shoes/bags/jewelry etc. for the whole month of August. I have a ton of cute Summer pieces I didn´t came around to wear so I decided in honor of my closet I rather should wear theses at least once this season before getting a new piece and let the older ones sit in the closet. This will definitely surprise my husband and I think he will be very happy about this choice. I am super curious if I make it to September.

This also means no more quarantine style and wearing a real outfit every day for the whole month. 

I am going to keep you posted week by week and also on my Instagram how I am doing but I honestly think this is a great way to rewear pieces of your closet. Also feel free to join me and tag me in your feed.
