Baby Weight Loss

I'll admit when I was pregnant I was a reckless eater! I never felt good and would basically just eat anything that sounded like it would satisfy me. After I gave birth I still ate whatever I wanted and just assumed the weight would fall off. I've always been a naturally "smaller" person and I've never really worried about my weight so I was definitely naive to what my body was doing.

After a couple months of very little change I realized if I wanted to get my body back the way it was pre-Bennett (or close to that anyway because let's be honest I'll never get back the body I had before) I was going to have to make some changes.

Over the last few weeks I have made a conscience effort to eat cleaner and work out more. Adam and I have switched to mainly all organic, natural products and cut out fast food (except Chickfila because I will never give that up!). I was SHOCKED at how quickly my body started bouncing back. I'm still no where near where I want to be but it is encouraging to see improvements.



Two things that have been really helpful are my Tone it Up DVD's and my Young Living Essential Oils! I workout 3-5 times a week and take walks as much as possible. I have been drinking a ton of water with lemon EO to help detox and using PanAway after workouts to help with sore muscles.

This is such a new way of living for me but I am excited about how good I feel not only physically but emotionally and mentally as well.

  1. You look great! My son is almost 10 months and I wish I would've started sooner. I look much worse now than I did 6 weeks postpartum. This is definitely inspiration to get my booty in gear!

  5. You look fantastic!!! I'm going to have to check out TIU. I'm just now starting to get back into working out (still not allowed to do any crunches or yoga though - thank you, c-section.) and wanted to find a good workout program. Oh and lemon EO in water is ah-maz-ing!!

  8. WOW! You go girl! Thursdays are my Chick-fil-a/queso/or sweet treats day. Can't get rid of Chick-fil-a. No way! :) The rest of the week, I try to eat organic and healthy whole foods!
