recovering from baby

Hey guys, so the wife and I have a 2 month old. Anyone else manage to get out and go boarding when you have a new baby? The two biggest challenges are finding someone to watch her, and trying to get into shape. I probably can't even fit into my pants right now.

Yeah. I did last year. It's hard to board with them strapped to your back. You have to make sure not to fall on them...

In all seriousness, I did go boarding last year, even with a new baby. My wife worked Sundays, so my mom, or my in-laws were willing to watch our son when I wanted to go boarding. It wasn't every weekend, but I got out a few times. If you want to get in to shape, do p90x when the kid is sleeping. I just started it after seeing a few people at work lose tons of weight and just generally look a lot better while doing it. It's intense to say the least, but it works.

I just had a baby too (rather, I watched my wife have one) so congrats snowjeeper. I'm on the exact same boat as you right now. All my jeans are tight now and I recently had to buy a size up to 36. It's still big on me, but at least it isn't tight like 34's haha.

The toughest thing to do is find time to hit the gym especially with work and school in the picture. It's also equally hard to not to spend whatever little spare time I have just staring at my son (month old).

P90x is an option. You can probably find torrents on it or else you are going to shell out some good dough. However, I have quite a few friends and also my sister in-law who use it. They are all in great shape. I've watched a bit of it and I'll tell you that it's hard. It will definitely increase your core strength and up your cardio. I think I'll start doing that as well on the weekends while baby is in his swing

My wife and I went to Mammoth last year when our baby was 3 months. Mammoth provides daycare once they're 10 weeks, but it definitely felt weird leaving her there. Wife did perfectly fine riding, and she even had a c-section.

Well, my wife and I are planning on taking turns doing runs this season if no one can watch our son. That's an idea too. You could even get away with buying only one pass that way.

yah that's true. I went all last winter without her however, it was kind of a bummer. we're trying to get my parents to rent a place up in the porcupines so we can go boarding at the porkies and they can watch the baby. If I had more skill/confidence I'd go up to mount bohemia.
