I know I fall off the fitness map when I'm pregnant but I think I'm ready to get back into it. This time with some newly learned skills.
I've been taking pictures of myself for the last 3 weeks to monitor progress. I don't actually see much improvement but clothes are fitting better which is always a good sign. I think I screwed myself by not doing abs almost the whole pregnancy. Boo.
With Jack I gained 40, Violet, 30 and Beck 40. I started at 125 this pregnancy rather than 135 with the other two so I wasn't as heavy even though I gained the same/more. My goal is to get down to 120. Aim high, right? Or in this case, low. Hehe. I'm currently at 135 and working hard everyday but Sunday to get muscle tone back. I feel good about where I'm at especially since the baby is only 9 weeks old. I was never this quick to lose with the other two.
A huge factor in my success is figuring out how to diet successfully. I have discovered the power of knowing how much you consume. It's amazing to see how calories can stack up without even realizing it. I'm using the app My Fitness Pal and it's awesome. I LOVE it. Convenient, helpful, easy to use and super motivating.
Hopefully I can continue to blog my health/fitness/weight loss journey to give everyone an idea of what it takes an average woman and mother to get back to normal. I believe in success for myself and anyone out there who sets their mind to it.
*I'm using my phone to blog and can't get this post to switch over to my fitness blog. That's okay. It's all the same to me. Hopefully I don't offend anyone with my "outfit" in these photos. :) Also, the photos are in the wrong order. I think they are starting with this week. Hopefully you can tell that just by looking at them.
