Losing the Baby Weight 6 Months Postpartum Check-In #bodyafterbaby

So... how'd we all do through the holidays? OK, I know we still have New Year's to go, but that's not a big deal for me. We're old married people and not really doing anything this year.

I'm a planner. It's what I do. It's what works for me. I used to think I should fight that, but now I see it as a strength and go with it. 
My plan for getting back on track this month: Move more. As I said in my Polar Loop post, I've set a goal of reaching 12,000 to 15,000 steps every day (and 10,000 on my rest day). I realize it's a big goal, but I like the challenge. I also like the healthy sh…
