Who doesn't love a good Summer Linky Party when we have a few extra minutes. Who am I kidding?!?! I currently have no extra minutes.... I have a newborn! BUT since I am all about dropping the extra baby lbs. right now, this kind of post is where my head it!
If you follow me on instagram @queenofthefirstgradejungle, first of all you know I post there a whole lot more, because---well it's quicker! BUT you also know that last January I took on my health and fitness and really transformed my body and my eating habits. Just about that time we were blessed to find out we were expecting baby number 3! HA! Well anywho here I sit 3 weeks after having Smith, and I am SO ready to get back there!
Since I had a c-section I am having to be careful about how I exert myself so walking is my best friend! We have this amazing 2 1/2 mile path in our neighborhood that Smith and I dominate once or twice a day.
******Before anyone gets worried about me.... I feel amazing after this csection. Seriously y'all I don't even feel like I had surgery. I am listening to my body (and my doctor), nursing my baby, and taking care of us both!*****
We have taken our walks to the beach a couple of times so far. We are limited a little by the heat, but Smith LOVES the stroller.
We also have a great county park here where we are shaded and close to the water. The whole family loves this path!
I have also learned from last year that I can't survive on coffee, coke, and the occasional adult beverages. I carry this water bottle with me everywhere and try to drink about a gallon of water a day!
I also LOVE, love, love Spark! It helps me clear the cobwebs out of my head from middle of the night feedings and general mothering of 3 children! If you are interested in buying or reading more about Spark, click on the above picture!
I FINALLY bit the bullet and got a Fitbit. So far- I love it! So motivating to get my steps in (especially since I spend so much time sitting and feeding the baby). In fact I will be heading out for another walk this evening!
I also started the 24 day challenge through Advocare today. I am doing a slightly modified version to make sure everything is safe for baby and me. After day one, I feel awesome. I have eaten a TON and had lots of energy. The 24 day challenge is an awesome way to jumpstart healthy eating habits and get yourself on track!

I would LOVE to see what you are doing to stay active and healthy this summer! Please link up below:
