Thanks! I'll check It out for sure! I live in a town where we get an average of 2-3 hrs of sunlight ...I don't take D3 but I make sure my babe does! She gets baby D drops with a booster because of where we live! I will definitely look into it for myself as well though, thank you!

I'm not in your boat, ladies, (being 73 years old) but Oxycise! is really great for soreness. Besides the trauma of the C-section to the midsection, the soreness of physical activity is trapped lactic acid. Oxycise! is perfect for releasing that lactic acid. It also firms up the middle in ways that no other exercise does. If you stick with it, you will find that the baby inches fall off and your muscles firm up. This all leads to weight loss in the long run. I am working on it again after being frustrated with weight gain over the holidays. Oh and don't forget to get your 1000 IU of D3 every day. That helps the cells do their work. If you live where it's cloudy all the time, you want to increase that to 1200 IU at least. I hope you took that during pregnancy so your kids won't get MS! Ciao!

I know eh! I keep telling my friends, no matter how "big" I was I could always do the things I wanted. Now it is so frustrating! BUT We CAN and we WILL do it...together :) I am committed to changing my body back...even this c-section pooch!

I am in the same boat. I knew I was out of shape but no matter how out of shape I have been I have never actually been physically been able to do something - sure i may do it poorly or not be able to hold a pose long but since baby there are things I can't do. I tell my body to do it and it doesn't respond.

I have been hitting the bath and stretching. I also like the sauna at the gym but still sore.

I am also hoping if I push through it will get better.

Hey! I am in a very similar situation...I also have a baby, a ten month old...had a c-section and really desperate to get back in shape! I am finding my body super sore as well, I am thinking stretching and baths are the best thing I can do for myself. I am also hoping that the more back in shape I get the better I will feel. Sorry this isn't much help....oh ya, definitely get to the pool though...awesome work out and great for the joints, wish I lived around one!

Hello Everyone!

I am seeking some suggestions or advice here. I am trying to get back on track with being fit. I have been super off the path since getting pregnant with my now 16 month old daughter.

Since starting this challenge I have been doing great with my workouts. I haven't been doing anything crazy or intense but I am so sore - just really really sore. I stretch and drink plenty of water and being sore like this isn't new to me when I get back on the workout wagon. I am particularly sore in my core which makes sense since I had a c-section.

What is different now is that I my go to for relief from being sore didn't work. I went to my go to for helping with soreness which is yoga but it has actually only made the problem worse. Normally a good yoga class limbers me up and just helps with the general sore/tension that comes from working out again but this time it has just made it more painful. I have to think it is related to the core changes from having a baby via c-section.

Anyone else have some suggestions on what else to try. I was thinking maybe a pool routine in the heated pool at the gym.

Any suggestions would be welcomed.
