Week 1 update

Standard

Day One: Update- ok so last night I almost didn’t exercise but I thought I couldn’t abandon the plan on day 1. So after the babies went to bed I did the workout. Funny enough I felt so good I did 30 sit-ups after. Today I feel pretty good except when I run up the stairs I feel a bit of burn. Which feels GREAT! I feel like last nights workout is a step in the right direction to making a difference.

Hurray, I made it! So I only did my leg workout 3 days this week but I did an ab workout and a 3.15 mile run/walk with my hubby after the 10 minute trainer total body. Sore but excited for week 2.

Week One: focus legs and booty

Standard

I have created this blog to follow my own journey; accomplishments and struggles, to lose the extra weight that I gained while carrying my little bundles of joys. My second child is now 7 weeks old and I got the clearance from my doctor that I can get back to work. After my first child I seemed to think all I needed to do was breast feed and the weight would just fall off, HA! Boy was I wrong. Needless to say I learned a lot from my first pregnancy. During my second I knew I couldn’t just answer to all of those “cravings” because I would pay for it later. Which brings me to day 1: I have 9- 10 lbs to lose to be back at my pre-pregnancy baby 2 weight. Unfortunately I have two goals through this journey; to also lose baby 1’s pregnancy weight too. Which means after I lose baby 2s weight I still have 25 more pounds to lose (proof that I caved to EVERY craving with my 1st pregnancy). 🙂 it was delicious.

So I am a BIG pintrestaholic therefore I have been pinning “Get in Shape” pins for the past 10 months so I have a lot to work with. Although one in particular caught my attention and gives me the feeling that “I Can Do It”! The idea of each work out is toning this body in the shortest period of time because with two babies time is not on my side.

Week one I am going to commit to doing this workout 5days no let’s be realistic 3-4 days this week. I got the workout from here

The Workout:
Lunges, 50 reps (25 each leg)
Bodyweight Squats, 50 reps
Back Extensions, 50 reps

And just for fun a BEFORE picture. Scary but much needed!
