“I hobbled up the stairs, clinging to the banister. The ligaments in my pelvis felt sore and tight. This was normal for me when I started up my running routine after having a long break, but a three block walk was hardly the equivalent of a three mile run, right? Maybe an outing so soon after having a baby hadn’t been such a good idea.
I stopped to stretch my legs. I had forgotten to take Motrin before I left the house and hoped stretching would alleviate some of the now familiar ache in my hips and legs.
Why hadn’t anyone warned me about this soreness? I’d heard, “Your life will never be the same after the baby,” but no one said, “You’ll never be able to walk again.”
Diana Orgain is yet another Fitness for Mothers success stories. Battling sleep deprivation, diaper blowouts and breastfeeding mishaps, her POSTPARTUM DETECITVE muddles through a crime investigation, Mommy style. Diana knows about most of these experiences first hand. She is an author and a mother of two. POSTPARTUM DETECTIVE is her first mystery novel.
Diana is a living proof that WE CAN DO IT – be creative, successful, loving, caring AND find time for ourselves. Diana generously agreed to share some of her MyFoodLog notes with other moms – I think it can be inspiring to all of us. See for yourself:
I am checking in from the writer’s conference. 3pm - the cookie break. Only I thought - wait a minute, I don’t really want a cookie. I REALLY want to go check my e-mail - see if there’s any news from the agents. So I poured myself a peppermint tea and logged on…
Big news! Got the agent. She is one of the top rising agents - so I’m very very happy.
Did work out today. If I am focused I get what I want... so there, I am trying to be more focused on fitness while trying NOT to lose my mind in the writing/agent game.
More news....drum roll...I’m pregnant!”
