Why do pregnant women always think they will get tons done during their maternity leave? I’ll be home, they say, I can organize the kitchen, look for a job, find the perfect table for the living room, all while taking care of the baby! No problem!
Ha! At four months, and with tons of help, I barely have to eat somedays (and I don’t even have to cook it!). My little girl is wonderful– happy, playful, alert, a good sleeper at night (naps we are still working on), really a delight. And even when I just do feedings, that’s still at least 6-7 hours of my day right there. Lovely, sweet time, but time none the less. Time I wouldn’t give up for the world, but will have to when I go back to work.
If you want to see how I’ve spent the last four months, here’s a peek.
I still have plans to post more regularly. Is that a pipe dream?
In the past year, I’ve worked hard to get healthy, add fitness into my life, and cut down on processed foods. In Hong Kong there may be *too* many opportunities to celebrate every day through indulgence, particularly with food and drink. I started a new Instagram account to document my journey of healthy meals, juices and smoothies, and motivation. If you are interested, follow wholefoodsfit here.
I apologize I’ve been sporadic in my posts lately. The last month sped by, and the next is nearly as fun, with a trip back to the US. Here’s a bit of my life from Instagram over the past 6 weeks or so.
