Baby number two has been here nearly a year and it’s time for this mama to start getting back to me. I have lost all the baby weight for the most part. Like most mamas, I still gotta work on my tummy. So, I’ve been taking action.
I have been getting back to my eating habits before I was eating for two. For me, that means packing lots of goodies to take to work. I stock up my cabinets at work with oatmeal for breakfast, I bring yogurt to go with it. I keep trail mix, granola bars and cereal bars for snacking. I also have been packing my lunch again. I’m a girl who likes routine, so salads for lunch work for me on the daily.
The next part of my plan is to work out.
I haven’t worked out since I was about four months pregnant with baby girl. At that point the doctor asked me to stop because it was dangerous for her with how she was positioned. So, I’ve got to take my time now getting back into shape. I can’t just jump into some hard core routine and think I’m going to be able to hang. I really want to though. I really want to be able to pick up where my formerly fit self left off. I’m terrified to find out how weak I really am now.
I belong to the gym at my job and we get a session with a personal trainer and a free pilates class every six months. I’m about to cash that in and get on about the business of getting mamas groove back.
How did you get your groove back/get back in pre-baby shape? Are you making any fitness goals for summer?
