Postpartum Weight Loss Diet and Exercise Plan, Part 2

Postpartum Weight Loss Diet and Exercise Plan Part 2…My third baby is about to be born (anytime now!), and I’m already preparing to get my postpartum weight loss underway.  Am I totally crazy?  Perhaps, but I actually find the weight loss process to be really fun, challenging and inspiring.  As a new Mom, it’s important to do something for yourself, and I think getting fit and healthy and exercising and shedding the no-longer-necessary pregnancy weight is a great thing to do for yourself…

Postpartum Diet and Exercise Plan to Lose the Weight Fast: Month 3

Postpartum Diet and Exercise Plan…We buried my grandfather yesterday. My grandmother died in April, Baby C was born in July, and now Grandpa died this September.  I was very close with both of them.

Postpartum Weight Loss Workouts: Week 4

Postpartum Weight Loss Workouts: Week 4…Sticking to a diet and exercise routine is extremely difficult, especially when temptation is constant and fatigue is heavy. The diet itself is easy, you just eat particular food. The workouts are challenging but they should at least be somewhat fun, and the endorphins should make you feel good. So it’s not the dieting or the workouts that make weight loss hard. It’s doing it long enough to see results that’s the tricky part…


Postpartum Weight Loss Workouts: Week 3

Postpartum Weight Loss Workouts…It’s now week 3 of our postpartum weight loss plan and I thought it was time to talk about progress, or rather lack thereof. 

Even the most strict and dedicated person sticking to the plan perfectly isn’t going to lose weight every single week. Sometimes you’re up, hopefully more times you’re down, and quite often you’re exactly the same on the scale.

Postpartum Weight Loss Workouts: Week 2

Postpartum Weight Loss Workouts Week 2…We are starting week two of the postpartum diet and exercise routine, are you sick of the food yet?! I certainly am even though it’s all good healthy food. But nobody said it’d be easy, right? I’ve always liked the expression, “eat how you’ve always eaten and you’ll look how you’ve always looked.” I ate moderately during the pregnancy but I definitely did not say no to anything, so this restriction takes some adjustment for me, too…
