Hi, I just popped out my third and final baby. I have been cleared my docs to workout 7 weeks ago. I am 13 weeks postpartum. I have been focusing mainly on losing the weight and its pretty much lost so I can now work on my other fitness goals. I enjoying boxing and yoga most and I would like to actually fight someday.
Even though I have been going strong, eating well and working out I am going to make today my day one. Today is the day where I exercise the self discipline I know I have. I am committing to my health. I have to weed out some negative "friends". Never a fun time. I have to admit my weaknesses so I can be held accountable. I like wine. There will be no more wine.
Id like to start with a 90 day challenge to myself. I have a boxing training plan that I will follow and I would like to make sure yoga is part of my daily life, even if its only 10 minutes.
My starting weight and measurements:
Height: 5'3"
weight: 132lbs
Chest: 29"
arms: 10" (at ease)
Bust" 36"
waist: 24 1/2"
belly button: 26 1/2"
hips:33"
thighs 17 1/2"

Hah so today is a REST day and it has really been anything but. Seriously my rest days are way more exhausting then work out days because its the day I handle EVERYTHING. I got 400$ worth of groceries, paid the bills, cleaned, and did every other miscellaneous thing on my list. I want to study but I cant until I relax for a few minutes. I just put my kids down for naps and I am SO happy.
Tomorrow I have a 2 mile run and pilates in the AM and boxing in the PM.

Today I am having a bad day. The problem with being postpartum is that sometimes depression and anxiety come with it. I know that following through with my workouts and clean eating will really help in the end so I WILL do it. I am just struggling intensely right now. I WILL get up and I WILL work out. Even if I cry through the whole damn thing.

I got some unhappy blood work results from my doc. I need to reduce my stress NOW. No pressure. Yesterday was really hard something else was wrong too but they cant be sure until more testing. Anyway I didnt get my workout in. I feel like crap. I need to do it today, if I dont it will just cause more stress. I started a 10 day raw detox last night so today is day one. I will post back with how my workout went today.

We went camping this weekend and I did GREAT. My food was spot on, we did a lot of hiking (with my newbie in a babyhawk its like wearing a weighted vest) and I even practiced yoga at night! My food was 95% raw, I am feeling SO much more relaxed.
Today we got home and I had to do all of my mommy/wife stuff first but I did 30 minutes of INTENSE (I mean hardcore) intervals on the bike and than an hour of pilates. I feel SOOOOOOO good :) I am going to get my yoga in later after the kids are in bed. Here are a few pics from our camping trip.

Thank you!
Today was a great day. My hubby, Mike, got up early with me and we did Rodney Yee's "yoga for strength and flexibility" dvd together. What a wonderful dvd. I felt amazing when we were done. I also did 30 minutes of HIIT on the bike.
My eating has been clean and good all day and I am feeling strong.
Hubby usually doesnt work out and he usually hates yoga because he isnt very flexible and it discourages him but now he loves it! I am thrilled :) He was a show off today with his strength, I am really happy he is making the choice to work out with me now. He had surgery in April and he gained a few pounds and he is sad (I totally understand, just having a baby and all) but he is making the change!!!

I love your Mei Tai, is that a BabyHawk? I can't tell if it's reversible or if you have two different MTs. Either way I love seeing mamas carrying their babies so close :)

Thanks!! It is a babyhawk!!!! Best thing I ever bought. We have two, one for Mike my husband and I have one that is reversible. Its got hula girls on one side and just a neat pattern on the other. I recommend them to anyone with a baby or toddler. My son will be 3 tomorrow and we still use it with him when we hike :D

So today is my son's 3rd birthday and my rest day! Whoo glad they synched up. We went out to lunch and I had a HUGE salad with oil and vinegar, 3 huge pieces of brucshetta (made sure it was vegan) and I even..... dun dun dun had a glass of red wine. I feel like a total slug but my diet is sooooo clean usually so I can understand. I am not going to beat myself up over it. I had a healthy breakfast and I will have a healthy dinner so whatev.

So last year my step brother was in a very bad car accident that left him on a ventilaltor with no chance of recovery. They waited a year and on Friday he was taken off and his organs donated. I did not get a workout in all weekend. I ate pretty poorly as well (I really didnt eat enough to be honest).
I am not feeling better really at all today BUT I am forcing myself to eat well and I am going to work out later because it will help the stress.
So far today Ive just had tons of raw fruits and veggies.
Later I plan on boxing and HIIT
