Post Baby Body: 9 Months

Yesterday was all about Emmalyne and the rock star that she is.  She is seriously the light of my world and my favorite, littlest person.  However, today is about me and my progress in losing the baby weight and reaching my fitness goals!  New to my updates?  Here’s a blast from the past:

Still doing good!  I think my stomach gets a little flatter and my abs slightly more defined as time is going on.  My legs are definitely toning up also.  My focus points in the coming months are my sides, inner thighs, and back.  Any words of wisdom for shredding fat on your sides and inner thighs?!

MEASUREMENTS

9 months post baby body measurements

I am excited to see some progress in the weight department.  While I don’t live and die by the scale I do have a goal weight in mind.  However a friend kindly reminded me that those are some vanity pounds which I don’t deny.  However, my biggest indicator of progress is how my clothes fit and how everything looks in the mirror.  I would happily be 150 lbs and toned/ripped any day.  :)  The number on the scale is just that … a number.  I refuse to let it define me.

EATING

I came clean with you all this week and told you about my battle with my sweet tooth.  It’s been a little difficult this week with company in town and so many fun things going on for the 4th of July.  I would love to say I kicked the habit overnight but that isn’t the case.  My other concern is that I am going home to Arizona next week for 2 full weeks and I am a little nervous about keeping up with my clean eating.  My family are healthy eaters but it’s totally different when you’re not doing the grocery shopping.  I am going to work hard to make good choices but I know this will be a hard month.  Clean eating detox will ensue when I get home that’s for sure!

EXERCISE

I have kept up with consistently working out 5-6 days a week and it feels great.  If there is one word that I would like to use to describe my fitness goals it would be STRONG.  I want to grow and develop muscles.  I want my arms, legs, back, and abs to be well-defined.  I am still trying to figure out how to get there though.

SO any ideas for gaining muscle and cutting fat would be greatly appreciated!  What I am doing has worked up until this point but I want to get to the next level.  Maybe some fresh ideas and new thoughts are just what I need.  :)

    HIIT is best for burning fat, but also slow walking is great for the tummy, too :) Lifting heavy will definitely help you get those muscles you want and make sure you have your protein, but CARBS too :) Your muscles can’t grow without them :) I am putting on muscle right now and did a “day in the life” type of post today on my blog :)

  2. On this Turbulence Training review I want to stop working every one of the nonsense surrounding the software along with
    produce my own experiences while using the system.

    I had heard about the particular inventor Craig Ballantyne ahead of simply by reading Mens Wellbeing magazine and so i had been
    certain that he some legality to his / her name. These days anyone on the
    web can cause a guide and also mug individuals in to getting this therefore
    i desired to make sure that mike geary recognized his things.

    Turbulence Training work outs are in no way the quick fix
    for shedding fat but it’s an incredible tool which will present you with much better benefits than conventional weight trainer workout routines.

    The basic training principles behind this software is actually intense interval training workout, which was tried and tested to lose nine times all the excess fat as standard constant state cardiovascular. However this type of interval training workout absolutely comes with a cost since you’ll ought to perform a great deal tougher
    to find the preferred consequences. Even when you may possibly carry
    out steady point out cardio and this will be not hard while you watch TV on an elliptical trainer
    but when you’re performing intense interval training you might be doing exercises very challenging. Good results for you to carrying this out type of coaching is you happen to be additionally destined to be capable of getting a lot more done in any reduced amount of time. Therefore as an alternative to staying at a fitness center all day at a time, you can as an alternative get a extremely effective exercise within 20-30 units.
