Day 2

Wednesday, November 02, 2011

Today I followed the cardinal rule of having a new baby - "sleep when the baby sleeps" and slept until noon. Give or take a few (READ: every three hours) feedings through the night and up until noon, I had a fantastic sleep.

Today's goals:
Shower - Didn't happen.
Drink the minimum of 8 glasses of water and then add a few more for Roo emoticon
Eat a minimum of 5 fruits/veggies emoticon
Walk, with Roo, to the end of the alley and back - it's not much of a walk but she needs to get acclimatized to our weather and *I* need the fresh air. - Didn't happen.
Lastly, I'm going to stay within my calorie goals. I accidentally blew this one yesterday. I won't be so careless today. emoticon

If I can figure out how to use my sling, I'm going to go to Run Club tonight to see the gang. We went to class last night so I could introduce her to my crew but tonight EVERYONE wants to meet her and, again, *I* need the fresh air.

I just love these little hands. Too bad I didn't notice the Hughy hair she held in her grasp when I took it. Then again, he loves her and seems to have claimed her as his SO maybe it's not so bad.

**UPDATED** I've adjusted my calorie intake to 1,539 - 1,889. I found a website that determined my requirements based on my age, current weight, height and activity level.

    Okay-so scrap the scolding on the other blog! so glad to see you adjusted your calories but did that calculator take into account the breastfeeding of a newborn? (just asking...)
    had to laugh at your shower goal: that's still a goal of mine with a 18 month old since I have no built in babysitter now.:(
    LOVE the tiny hands...sooo sweet and so smart of you to get a pic of it. Another one I got of each baby: the back of their heads with their newborn hair. after a month, it will be different ~AAAhhh...newborns emoticon

    Loved your first goal for the day. I remember having the same goal when my kids were newborns. Showers were such a luxury!

    I love the shot of her hands too!

    (I remember the days of a goal being able to shower)
