Getting back to normal

blog 17

I have stopped breastfeeding and as a consequence my hormones are changing. Any woman that has gone through this, knows that this is no fun! It’s an emotional rollercoaster! One minute I cry, the next I am angry! What is going on!?!?

I am longing to get back to normal.

One problem though!

I still don’t fit into my regular clothes 🙁

When you become pregnant, almost your whole wardrobe needs changing. The difficult part is that you don’t know how big you will be and when (i.e. in which season). I have spent so much money on clothes and bras, for both during pregnancy and after pregnancy and so much of it I have never used.

Now, I am still not at my pre-pregnancy size and it’s frustrating trying to find something to wear, that I feel good in.

This in-between-phase sucks!

I know these changes are temporary and I will soon get back to my normal female rhythm. At least the thought of that keeps me sane. Although the normal rhythm also has it’s drawbacks – if you know what I mean?

*Sigh* the downside of being a woman!

In any case, another thing that keeps me going is that I will soon start training again. In a few weeks I’ll be going back to my beloved boxing training! I cannot wait! Other joyful news is that I have started “yoga with baby”-classes with the wonderful Lorien! I love the stretching and I love that I can bring my baby.

As you can see, I try to focus on the happy and good things, although it is hard some days – especially because we still don’t sleep fully at night! But hopefully the last kilos will vanish quickly so I can fit into my jeans and feel like myself again.
