No secrets here! Amy shares how establishing a consistent workout routine and cooking from home are all the tricks you may need to lose your baby weight.
before i had the baby i feel like i was very active and in pretty good shape. it was my third pregnancy so i was already busy chasing around two toddlers. there were days when i would splurge on a dairy queen blizzard or a plate full of nachos. for the most part i tried to keep things in check. I had Eve on January 20th. she came about two weeks early. but she's the sweetest little thing. she loves watching her big sisters. she could sit there and watch them all day. i decided to start loosing the baby weight about six weeks after having Eve. Once i started to feel like myself again, i had a grasp on breast feeding and got the ok from my doctor to start exercising, and then just kind of went from there. i lost the baby weight the gold old fashioned way of diet and exercise. No gimmicks no fab diets. I actually get up at 5 o'clock in the morning to work out before the rest of my world and my family wakes up. So i'm able to get a good sweat going on and shower done before the baby wakes up. So by the time everyone in the family is up, I feel like I've got a ton of energy and I'm ready to take on the day. But for the most part i'm still able to manage to cook all of our meals at home and from scratch. So we're still able to limit the processed foods and eating out. I'm not here to tell anyone to ignore all of those midnight cravings because you should enjoy being pregnant. You should have fun with it. But at the same time, keep in mind it'll be much easier to fit back into those pre-pregnancy jeans if you have 20 pounds to loose apposed to 70.
