New Fitness Plan & Goals | 7 Weeks Post Partum

Hi, Loves! As I'm getting back into the swing of things, I wanted to share my fitness goals as a new mom. It won't be easy to be consistent with my lack of time and sometimes lack of sleep due to caring for two infants but I'm committed. I also delivered my twins via C-Section so I'm starting slow and building my regimen as I go. I gained a total of 45 pounds during my twin pregnancy and I've lost all but 10 pounds. This is a great starting point for me as I return back to having a fitness regimen. I'm thanking my lucky stars that it seems I was mostly, "All Belly" as I was often told during my pregnancy. 

 In the images you'll see displayed in this blog, this was my very first day returning to working out. I was able to take the boys to the park and I was also accompanied by my husband and dog Rocko. The boys happen to love their car seats so power walking and slow jogging in the park works well. I plan to be spending more time outside working out because it helps me to clear my mind and get some fresh air. I stay home with my boys and take freelance work as a photographer, which I've been doing for a couple years now. Being at home more often for my boys is a blessing but it can also be pretty isolating so I'll be getting out as much as possible. 

It is nearly impossible to reserve certain days and times with two infants. So I plan to workout 3 to 4 times a week and at this point I don't have planned days. My goal at this point is to get at least 30 minutes to an hour 3 or 4 days as week. I'll be incorporating quite a bit of cardio in order to shed those 10 pounds. I've never been really into weight training and I won't be starting at this point. Using my own body weight and light weights with higher reps has always helped me tone. I'll be keeping things simple at this point and sharing my results after a couple months. 

I'd love to hear from you other moms and those of you who've started a fitness routine for 2018. Hopefully we can be a source of motivation for each other!
