Two Months Post-Partum
And here I am today …
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!
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!
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 …
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
