Baby has arrived....plan of attack to get back in shape

Friday, May 02, 2014

So, I got up to 265 during my pregnancy and I'm hovering around 245 now. That's a gain of 75 pounds during the pregnancy!! I'm at my heaviest again...time to get back to my lowest at 171. So here's my plan!

While breastfeeding and not working out I'm going to eat 1800-2000 cals per day. Once I start wroking out I'm going to eat about 2000-2400 depending on what I need. I can't work out for another 4 weeks but here's my plan!

Cycle or hiking for an hour (hiking is better because I can take my girls)

Run, arms and core

Yoga and more core work

Run, arms and core

Hiking with kids and bf

a few options...most likely will be doing Turbo Kickboxing and Yoga at the gym that is closer (Josh said he'd do turbo with me) - this requires getting a sitter for the baby and once Azali starts swim class again it'll be on Saturdays so I'll need to adjust the plans here to Bodypump and/or aqua

Cycle and yoga class at the gym closest to us or bodycombat and bodypump at the gym further away

I have to play with my cals because I'm trying to breast feed and I'm not sure how many I need to keep up with the little milk I am able to produce

    congrats on your baby girl! You'll start slimming down in no time!! Just remember you have a plan but it's not set in stone. It's hard with a new baby and more so when you already have other children so do not be so hard on yourself. Give it time and do the best you can and be proud of that!! Good luck!!! You can do this =)

    Your plan seems wisely thought out and you can really do what you set your mind to.

    Good luck and please feed yourself enough of everything while you are breastfeeding. Your body has to give it away whether or not you replenish it.

    I remember the days of trying to juggle it all. Give yourself time to get the details ironed out and allow adjustment time and wiggle room in your plans. Once you settle into it, the weight and inches will come off again!

    Make sure to get in tons of water while breastfeeding. You both need it.

Great plan.
