Post Baby

At my 6 week check up I was 4 lbs under what I was when I got pregnant with Adeline, yay...

However, I really didn't gain very much with her and I'm burning an extra 500 calories a day breastfeeding and after I have babies, my body craves healthy foods, awesome I know, just wish it would last:)  I also think that with two kiddos, I don't have as much time to just sit and eat, so I don't eat as much.

I wish being 4 lbs less also meant I could get my body shape back, ha!  Never.

I also need to be careful that I'm eating enough calories in a day to keep my milk supply up.  With Hakan, I barely made enough to get by.  This time around, I'm eating oatmeal every morning for breakfast, which I think is really helping.
I wasn't a huge fan of oatmeal, so making it myself tasted better than the instant Quaker packets.   But then we discovered Better Oats.  They're instant packets too, but sooooo delicious!  You can even use the packet to measure the water, genius!  It also has flax seed to get some healthy omega-3, great for Adeline too:) 

These two are my faves!!  There's real chocolate in the Lavish one and real blueberries in the other one. They have a lot of different flavors to choose from.

You can get them at Target and Walmart.
