Not that I’m any kind of prominent fixture around here, but if anyone noticed, I’ve been off the boards for nearly two weeks now due to my wife giving birth to our daughter.
For what it’s worth, here’s a few pics of Lil’ Chainsaw along with my fat mug and a pic of her mom (she is actually blinking, not high on painkillers).
Also, anyone have any solid advice for working out/diet in these first months of having a newborn? I’ve put a 1 month freeze on my gym membership which can be extended if need be. I’ve got some good equipment at home, but it is currently buried under all of the crap (read: wife’s crap) we had to move out of the house to lay down laminate flooring, in other words, unusable. The thought of exercise seems very unappealing while running a sleep deficit, and keeping diet on track is even harder, being coccooned in the house most of the time.
It’s only been 3 weeks away from the gym, and I’m already starting to feel lethargic and bloated. I’m sure this is just a temporary condition, as there are a lot of fit dads and moms on this board, I guess I just need a kick in the ass to get through the initial few months of unscripted newborn spontaneity. That said, I still wouldn’t trade fatherhood for anything, though. She flashes those gums and I’m butter.
