Fit Friday – And So It Begins


Oh girls, I ate so horribly during my pregnancy. I really did. We had take out multiple times a week. The last two weeks while I was feeling “punished” by the pain I was in, I totally self medicated with oreos and entenmanns… and flat soda…and ice cream. Lots. of. Ice Cream.


That’s the past. What’s done is done.

What’s to come is what matters.

I have one meal taken care of each day. That’s my a.m. shakeology shake. I pop some fruit or greens and milk in there, shakey shake (or vroom it around in my trusty nutribullet) and I’ve got the most nutritious meal of the day all done.

What happens after that is where the hard part comes in…

No more snacking on entenmanns and ice cream ::wipes tear:: No more chugging sweet juices and sweet teas. No more junk dammit!

Now my snacks are:

  • fruits
  • yogurt
  • hummus & carrots
  • …ok… and Rohan’s apple sauce

I just crave sweets all. the. time. #gottaworkonthat

John is on board to eat cleaner too, and he’s still doing his low carb thing 6 days a week. I can’t go low carb, and I definitely won’t be restricting calories at all since I’m breastfeeding Kaya, but I am making healthier food choices. (except last night when we had Chinese instead of cooking a healthy meal at home….but I digress)

I may end up going back to the Eat to Live way of eating…but what I know for sure right now is I need to clean up my eating if I’m going to see this baby belly go away for good.


Until the doc says I can work out I’m going to just focus on:

  1. Drinking as much water as is humanly possible each day
  2. Making my snack choices healthier
  3. Replacing my morning snack or first meal with a shake
  4. Not eating/snacking/grazing after 9pm

I’m kinda glad there’s a delay before I can work out. Consistently eating well requires way more effort for me than consistently working out hard. We’ve all heard that “abs are made in the kitchen” and I sooo wish that wasn’t true. So it’ll be nice to have this month of April to try and wrangle my eating and clean it up before I add workouts to the mix. I’m going to have to be one of those people who ::gulp:: plans her meals in advance. ::hyperventilates::

OK. So. It begins today. As it stands I’m holding on to 30lbs of extra weight. (Why God? Why!?!) Some of that is definitely in the boob area, so I’m going to make my (tentative) goal 25 lbs off and a fit body. (Though if my weight stayed exactly the same while my body transformed from mushy to fit I’d be totally fine with that too.)

Do you have any fitness plans? How’d you lose your baby weight?

The Frugal Exerciser

I'm trying to stop a sugar addiction I developed recently so I'm doing South Beach phase 1 for the next 2 weeks. You are right, you can't out exercise a bad diet and trying to do that will only lead to an injury.

LOL we went out for Chinese too! But anyways I feel your pain about the food thing. I literally was doing amazing but not changing diet and I saw Zero results. Now I'm focusing on cleaning up the diet and doing small things like walking and such. I don't have any baby weight to lose but I definitely have happily married weight to lose =) Plus must lose some before even attempting having a baby... Motivation

I hope you didn't gorge yourself on chinese like we did. It's crazy how big a role food plays. I wish I could just run and that would be enough. #gettinold now so gotta do LOTS more than before. What are you doing to clean up your diet? And when is babytime planned for?! :)
