Post Baby Body Update: Month 4

You can months 1, 2, and 3 here, here, and here.


Quick glance back ….

Two Months Post-Partum

And here I am today …

Stats…

This by far has been my biggest month of change since posting my 1-week post baby body update.  It feels SO GOOD to see progress.  :)  I also was able to zip my pre-pregnancy jeans comfortably which is an AMAZING feeling!

Eating
I am no longer counting calories.  After doing so for 2 months I feel like I have a really good grasp of what 2300 calories is.  I truly attribute my current success to counting calories.  Not eating enough is no joke.  You need to determine your own caloric needs into order to fuel your body appropriately.  Once I started fueling properly the weight started to come off.  I also drink 104oz of water a day.  Maintaining proper hydration is not only essential for weight loss and general well-being, it is also super important for breastfeeding (which I am still doing).  I am also doing my “plank a day” and I am already starting to notice a difference in my core!

Working Out
I started my 1/2 marathon training last week so I am running 4-5 days per week.  I am still weight-training 3-4 times a week as well.  I try to mix up traditional weight training with CrossFit as well.  The one thing I am sorely lacking is more yoga, which is something I plan on working on this month.  Some days I also have to get creative and do circuits in my garage if Emmie is having a rough day 😉  

This is the CrossFit workout I did on Monday …

Goals
I recently posted about how I learned to love my mom body.  My goal right now is to continue to be positive :)  I am seeing changes which motivates me to work hard.  I am comfortable the way I am so everything from here on out is the cherry on top of a pretty awesome sundae :)

  1. Go Madeline! I still love your "how to love my mom body" post. You are doing so well! That workout looks kick-butt.

  2. Beautiful as ever 😀
    I hope you're doing WIAW tomorrow! I'm curious to see where you get most of your calories and in which meals

  3. I plan on doing a WIAW BUT all my snacks rarely make it into photos … I'd be happy to email you though!

  4. You are doing such a great job! I could def tell from your pictures that you had a good month before checking out your stats below! Lookin' good. :)
