9 Weeks Postpartum…and Thrush…still…

9 weeks pp as of two days ago--Thanksgiving set me back a couple days on this post--and I weighed in at 148 lbs. Surprising considering that Thanksgiving killed my diet. I've also eaten quite a lot of Popeyes chicken sandwiches after trying one of them. The hype is real! But one thing I have known… Continue reading 9 Weeks Postpartum…and Thrush…still…

8 Weeks Postpartum and Thrush

This week I met most of my goals - I almost worked out everyday, no ring fit though. I have 2 days remaining on the 30 day Yoga and Glute challenges and about 10 days remaining on ghe Dead Hang challenge.

3 Weeks Postpartum

I'm three weeks postpartum (and 1 day) and I'm now 151 lbs. I can honestly say that I've done absolutely nothing that I planned to do this week. After last week's post I fully intended to work out everyday and eat healthy, and pump milk at least once a day also. None of that happened.… Continue reading 3 Weeks Postpartum

A few terrifying things about twin pregnancy and postpartum

Hello everyone! My writing blog mjpankey.com has been lagging a bit lately because I've been super preoccupied with being pregnant with twins!  They were born at 36 weeks and 4 days on 27 Sept, and the whole experience was, quite frankly, a bit terrifying, for multiple reasons.
