Post-baby body {This is real life}

So I know over all I’ve tried to not make this blog baby centric, however all of my fitness posts in the near future are going to revolve around coming back from baby #2. So I decided to have a little real life on the blog. Body after baby, I really meant to take a picture in the first week at home, that time when you still look a few months pregnant, but I forgot. Life was a little crazy so yeah…

But I did take some pictures, and I will continue because well, this is real life.  First of all I want to remind you that I was in the best shape of my adult life before baby #1 and honestly pretty great shape before baby #2 I was able to run distances up to 6.1 miles through my 7th month and then continued to run shorter distances up to my 32nd week. I strongly believe staying so active not only helped my labor and delivery but also my bodies recovery.

I think today’s celebraties have skewed our perception of what we should look like after baby  I’m not trying to brag with this I’m trying to show reality  I realize I’m blessed with a body that seems to recover quickly but trust me I have work ahead of me

8 Days:

2 weeks:


I’m really excited to get active again in a few weeks, I have my follow up midwife appointment in 2 weeks and I’m hoping to get released to run then. Until then I’m not going to pressure myself. I’m in the middle of a eating clean 5 day challenge to hopefully break some bad eating habits I’ve fallen into and also prove to myself that its possiable to cook and each healthy with 2 kiddos at home. More on that in a post later this week.

Its time to get serious, I made too many bad habits in the last few weeks of my pregnancy.  Once I get the go ahead to exercise I’m going to weigh in and take some measurements. Weight isn’t the big thing but after a pregnancy it is a number that should change a bit so I will be tracking it for a while till I’m back in a normal range then I’ll go back to measurements and fitness ability.
