Before // Currently weighing in at 145!! Before pregnancy, I weighed 125 and I was very happy with my body. I was eating clean, running 3 miles a day, and doing the #bbg three times a week. I looked great and felt great!! .
Once I got pregnant (after a long, long period of trying), my doctors told me I needed to ease up on the exercise. Swimming was fine, running and the other things were not. I also had such bad morning sickness that clean eating went out the window! I ate whatever I thought I could keep down. .
At forty weeks and one day pregnant, I weighed about 172. The highest I've ever been!! I lost most of it in the first three weeks after she was born, thanks to breastfeeding and using a tummy wrap. Now that I'm three months postpartum, I got the ok from my doctor to start exercising again!! So I decided to share my progress on Instagram. I want to document my journey!
My ultimate goal is 125, but I would be happy at 135 + toned. My plan right now is to eat about 1200 calories a day, start running again using the #c25k app, and start the #30dayshred as well. I was going to do the pretraining of the BBG, but I was dreading it - so I knew I wouldn't do it. I'm excited to start the shred, so I know I'll stick with it! .
My target date for reaching my goals is March 17. Nine months on, nine months off! Realistically, I think I can be at my goal weight by the end of the year, but toning is a big goal of mine too!! .
Getting healthy is important to me not only for myself, but for my daughter. I want her to grow up knowing how to eat healthy and have fun exercising. I want to set a good example for her and teach her to love her body! //
