I am incredibly passionate about health and fitness. I love to work out and I work hard to keep my body tight and right. Despite having to slam on the breaks due to needing to be cautions during my pregnancy, I still lifted weights, walked and swam as much as possible. I kept eating healthy while staying active, I still gained 75 pounds in total when carrying my twin boys. I went from a fit 150 to cool 225...whoa. I was never really concerned with getting my body back since I was one of those rare creatures that looked forward to a post pregnancy sprint down the street like it was Christmas morning.
|My belly at maximum capacity....just days before I went into labor|
|1 week after giving birth...tummy is already way down!|
|2 weeks after my boys came into the world...|
|4 weeks after babies|
With 50 pounds down that leaves the last (and hardest) 25 to go. Next up, adding in a daily weight lifting regiment to strengthen my legs and arms. In addition to my daily mommy runs I also have enlisted my TH to help me set up my boxing bag in the backyard so I can start doing some at home kick boxing classes. That mixed with some serious ab work and I think I will be back to my pre baby body just in time for my 30th birthday in December.
Stay tuned for more post-pregnancy mommy workouts!
