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.
