Operation Fit Mom: Two Weeks Post Pregnancy

Operation Fit Mom: Two Weeks Post Pregnancy

Training, nutrition, workouts and my progress

What I did during Pregnancy…

Training: once or twice a week with bands, deadlifting and squatting stopped at 32 weeks pregnant, most other training was band work.

Cardio: maybe 10 walks total my whole pregnancy

Eating: I did not track macros at all and ate freely the whole pregnancy.

Weight gain: started 150lbs at 15% body fat, gave birth at 192lbs—42lbs gained

Photo of me the weekend of conception… at least to our and the doctors knowledge.  Was 150lbs and 15% body fat before pregnancy.


Post Pregnancy…..

14 days post birth: weight 175lbs

Training\cardio: none yet

Nutrition: Started tracking my macros this week. I am breast feeding so I am not in a calorie deficit. I am finding that I probably over ate during my pregnancy because I am HUNGRY! I am eating balanced. Therefore I am eating whole foods but still enjoying foods I love like Cheese Its and ice cream! :)


Yes, this photo is embarrassing but I am not embarrassed. Through pregnancy I think I learned to live a little! Years of anorexia and exercise bulimia made me such a control freak with my body that I took these 9 months and enjoyed life instead of focusing on what I was eating next. It was a freeing experience that made me quickly reprioritize my life. I am starting my journey back to fit but not letting it control me or take priority over other things in my life.

Check back every month for progress stats and pictures!

By the way we had a beautiful baby boy born 8\12\2014 at 6lbs 3oz.

Fitness comes in all shapes and size, don’t judge a book by its over!
