Life with a new baby

Beautiful baby Amelia was born on June 11th, weighing in at 9lbs, 1oz.

It's been about a month now and things are coming together.  I lost all but 5lbs of my baby weight within 2 weeks of giving birth and started my new training program the following week.  I'm doing weight training 4 days per week (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday) and even have a diet plan to follow.  I'm definitely LOVING having a personal trainer!  It's by far the best investment I've ever made into my health and wellness.

This week was my first full week training on my own and following the new diet plan.  It's been going really well, although I think I'm going to have to add some weight for next week.  The main thing I've noticed with the diet plan is that I'm eating less fruit and more starchy stuff... and a LOT more food than I was previously eating!  But you need a lot of calories to build muscle, which is what I'm aiming for at this point.
