Let the baby weight battle begin

Considering the fact I was asked several times during pregnancy “Twins?” (and once triplets?) it goes without saying I enjoyed the “eating what I want” part of it all. I did have some pretty bad swelling which didn’t help. When I stepped on the scale before delivering the number put me at + 75 lbs. It’s been three weeks since that day and I’m starting to feel okay enough to exercise a little. I’ve also broken a personal record: 3 weeks without enjoying one of my favorite filet-o-fish. Because I’m breastfeeding I can’t really diet but what I have done is cut out the fast food and sugar intake. I’m trying not to freak out that I still have 50 pounds to go. They say it takes longer with the second baby. I think part of it is your SO tired from caring for the first. Feel free to share what worked for you!

New kids book encourages “diet”

Been wanting to write about this. Check out this new book that Barnes & Noble recommends for kiddos 6-12. It’s called Maggie Goes on  Diet and shows an overweight girl holding a small dress and looking into a mirror. Her reflection is a skinny Maggie.

The story of the 14-year-old takes her from being overweight to exercising and eating right to losing weight and becoming a soccer star at school. Good habits start early so I can see why a story like this could inspire someone to try to lead a healthier life. Critics says it sends the wrong message with the picture of Maggie holding the small dress. They say it puts more emphasis on being “skinny” rather than “healthy.”

Psst… have you heard? The Bra Whisperer is here

Ladies.. listen up. The ‘Bra Whisperer’ has waltzed her way into Washington, opening up her first store Intimacy Bras in our area at Tysons Corner center!

WATCH: Angie interviews “Bra Whisperer”

With more than 15 years of experience, including being trained by the Queen of England’s Royal Bra Fitter, it’s no surprise Susan Nethero was deemed the ‘Bra Whisperer’ by fashion expert Carson Kressley. Nethero even has Oprah in her fan club.

The founder of Intimacy Bras says studies find 85% of women are wearing the wrong bra. She says the biggest mistake.. wearing one that is too big around the back. She says to think of your bra as a see-saw… pull it down in the back to get the lift in the front. Nethero adds lingerie must-haves are a plunging bra, a converter bra and something red.  HOT!

Back to 'Mommy' Bootcamp

I was bold and headed back to Mommy Bootcamp for the first time since I had Adora. I brought the baby too… which is the beauty and mega perk of this high energy workout for women in our area. There are classes weekday mornings and also on Saturdays. It’s fun but let me tell you it’s tough. I know I’ll be hurting in the morning. With 20 more LBs to lose… that’s a good thing. Check out the MBC schedule here. Classes are held in Tysons, Dulles Mall and Dulles Sportsplex.

Adora broke out the sweatsuit for this one!

To hang or not to hang: Nursery Painting Controversy

I am a big fan of Colombian figurative artist Fernando Botero known for his ‘larger than life’ style. I fell in love with his ‘Mona Lisa, Age 12’ and thought it would add some renaissance to my mostly white nursery with gold accents. I got the canvas oil painting and had a frame made for it.  Before hangin it above the changing table I sent an iPhone pic out to the hubby and siblings for reaction.  This is how it went…

Angie: I present… Baby Mona Lisa

Sister Jenny: Did someone “fat booth” Mona Lisa? (for those of you who don’t know ‘fat booth’ is my fave iPhone app, it makes people really fat after you take a pic of them)

Husband:  ….a very disturbing picture.  It looks like a female Chucky doll with boobs!

Sister Tricia: I think it is hilarious!  But, if it scares the baby, you might just put it in the bathroom across from the toilet.

Sister Jenny: I’ve never seen a baby with so much cleavage
