13 days to LOs party n there is no way I can loose a stone. How can I mistakenly think that my own sons party is in feb rather then jan! Baby brain to the MAX!

ValiumQueen Mon 31-Dec-12 16:12:02

GT that is an unrealistic goal, and would mean being very unhealthy. It is your sons party so most eyes will be on him, people know you have recently had a baby, and from the pics on FB you are a very beautiful young lady who carries any extra weight well. So stop stressing about what you cannot change, aim to eat more healthily, and enjoy these days and weeks with your lovely boy x

Evening all!

PR- glad to hear things are getting better.

4 hours later and N is still NOT asleep. there has to be a better way.

MIL suggested rocking him for 2 hours , or co sleeping with us. Co-sleeping is dangerous as both DP and I roll alot at night. Rocking him for 2 hours not on my favourite list, and it hasn't really worked.
My mum said "let him cry it out"
my aunt, "a bit of brandy on his dummy will do the trick"
My nan, "keep him awake all day out if spite, then he will sleep

Can I have some sensible help?

Aww thanks VQ. I know I'll never loose a stone in 2 weeks. Just a bit gutted that my I messed up calculations of my first goal. Gona mk sure he has a massive 1st bday party at where I can show off my smoking new slim body. At my slimmest I'm a size 14/16! Currently a 18. There are 4 stone between those dress sizes if u can believe that.
I am never gona b slim. Just want to loose the gut.

I second VQ!

Sophiathesnowfairy Tue 01-Jan-13 06:24:23

Yep gt you are a stunner so don't worry the weight will better stay off if done slowly.

Fab title sums up my year ahead.

30 mins more snooze I think.

Tip for those using the shitty iPhone app - open mumsnet in Safari. I think DH suggested it a while ago and it's so much better. I thought the text would be too small but its as good as and a much clearer lay out. There's more options to click as well as there would be on a computer.

I've got a little programme to follow to get fit again. DP is a physio and personal trainer so that's handy but also means in the the torture-and-no-sympathy land as I asked for help. Oh dear! Only 1 rest day a week but a lot of the plan is using my fitness DVDs and I have a couple of post natal ones (I love Davina and she's got a pre/post natal DVD too). This will be combined with a couple of runs (when DP can have baby) and 1 circuit training session a week. I'll give it a go to see whether or not its realistic! The runs are only short so I'll only be out for an hour max (hopefully) and it'll be nice to have some alone time with music even if that means sweating profusely and struggling to breathe whilst clutching a lamp post . I should be ok. I miss my fitness and it'll do a world of good for mental health.

Went to a New Years party at a friend of DP's. In hindsight it was a silly idea as J cluster feeds in the evening and I spent almost the entire party upstairs feeding while watching their telly and came down for the chimes and he got upset when the party poppers and cheers happened! Just felt utterly stupid thinking it would work (for DP sake). Oh well!

NervousReindeer Tue 01-Jan-13 08:27:21

peaky a short run = 1hour?!?! I thought youweregoing to say 10min grinblush

ValiumQueen Tue 01-Jan-13 08:33:31

Perhaps the hour includes a nap in the park.

pikz Tue 01-Jan-13 08:40:40

VQ that made me spit tea!!

Brace yourself for what might be a week of ranting mil is currently landing from SA...

ValiumQueen Tue 01-Jan-13 08:46:15

pikz sounds like fun! Rant away.

TheDetective Tue 01-Jan-13 09:13:38

I definitely have a lazy baby. We've just done the last night feed wink. everyone here still asleep. Looks like Oscar and me are joining the sleep party!

Be back at 1130!

Peaky1 Tue 01-Jan-13 09:17:37

I meant up to an hour! According to my app I ran 1.38 miles the day before yesterday and it took me ages due to running like an 80 year old with 2 replaced hips who needs a poo! That and lots if walking breaks, lol!
