While pregnant with Cash, I worked out the entire pregnancy. I ran, I did yoga, I did sit ups. Even while on work trips, I brought workout videos. I gained 30 pounds.
After he was born, I jumped right into working out. A full week hadn't gone by and I was logging in the miles on my jogging stroller. After several weeks, I had dropped all but 10 pounds and was happy.
Baby number 2? Didn't work out. Not even once.
Total weight gain? 23 pounds.
Post delivery, I dined almost entirely on Hershey Nuggets and cherry Coke. Exercise? Sure. If you count going to the grocery store to buy more nuggets and Coke as a workout.
I've got 4 pounds before I hit my pre-pregnancy weight.
There is a God.
