After baby, before LiveFit pictures

20130127-095353.jpg

Well there you have it, my baseline pictures before starting the trainer. The first pictures are from January 24 (3 days postpartum) and the second ones are from January 26 (5 days postpartum). As you can see, there is really quite a noticeable difference between the two sets of pictures. I contribute that to breastfeeding and pumping as both contract the uterus back to its almost original size (this, making my gut look smaller, lol). If I were to take a picture today too, you would again notice a significant difference. My stomach looks almost as flat as it did before baby, without the definition and tone I had before.

I’m using these as my baseline before starting the trainer. I will take other pictures, like arms, back, etc the day I start the trainer so I have baseline pictures to compare to as well. I’m excited to see a difference in these pictures.

I’m excited to start this exciting new chapter of our lives. I’m ready to be a fit mom. I’m ready to get my old body back and make it better. I’m ready to get started!!!!

Baby has arrived….

Well, our beautiful baby girl arrived on Monday, 4.5 weeks early, but we are both at home and doing very well. I have taken post partum day 3 pictures and day 5 pictures that I will share with you on my next post. I’m going to use these as my starting point before beginning the LiveFit trainer in a few weeks. I’m going to ease into getting back to the gym for the next couple weeks as life with a new baby is something our family needs to get use to.

Let the new, post baby body begin!!!

WOW, did I ever fall behind on this!!!

Life has been crazy busy these past few months. Not only have we been preparing for baby to arrive next month, but we were building a house, working full time, and all the other little things life throws at you. Needless to say, I have not been very good at updating my blog or my Twitter account.

I have really slowed down on my fitness during my pregnancy, which I know I shouldn’t have done, but it happened. And now, with only a month left, I’m finding it very difficult to get back on the exercise wagon. These days, my exercises consists of 8 hours a day of busy surgical nursing and 30 min a day of walking my dog. I think for me, at this point, that is enough. I can feel my body getting tired easily now.

I know that when baby arrives, I won’t have much time for the blog, but I am really going to try to stay accountable. My plan is to start Jamie Eason’s LiveFit Trainer once I begin to try to lose the baby weight. ¬†Hopefully, I can keep on track with that, this blog, and having a new baby!!!!
