Let us guide you along week-by-week!)
I'm going to try and walk with baby when I can!
Then once I'm cleared to workout I'm going to start doing my 30 day shred dvd's again! I LOVED them before and it made me feel so toned! I can't wait to start them again!
I'm debating going to WW though! Well see...
I have fantasies of running on the treadmill whilst my child snoozes peacefully in her swing.
you may commence laughing at me now!
I am going to walk until I am cleared to jog and run. (My plan is to walk one mile 7 days a week, adding an extra mile each week until cleared to run. Then my DH and I will walk everyday with LO, probably about 2 miles after I can run.) Once I can jog/run, I will run one mile 3 days per week (adding a half a mile each week) and do a sprint/walk called 30/60s (you sprint for 30 seconds and walk for 60 seconds) for 30 minutes 3 days a week. I also plan on doing strength training (including sit ups and push ups everyday). I will also be working with a personal trainer after LO is 6 weeks and can go to the gym nursery. (I am in the Army so this makes sense).
My DH and I are also going to start eating more fruits and vegetables, eating less sweets, cutting out soda unless we are out for dinner (once every two weeks or so). We are not going to count calories, just eat healthier choices (wheat bread over white bread, herbs instead of salt, low sugar alternatives, etc).
I am also hoping that since I plan on breastfeeding this helps me lose the weight. My goal is to not only lose the baby weight, but get back down to my post-Army basic training weight and size. So baby weight plus 2 dress sizes. I am not worried about the pounds as much as the physical fitness and size of my pants.
I have a gym membership that I have not been able to use for a while according to my drs orders. I have put it on hold until after the girls come. When they arrive and I am released to work out again I will be going back to the gym to do the classes I did prior to the pregnancy. I was also working out with a personal trainer prior to getting pregnant and may work out with her a couple of times a week. Just plan on getting back to the gym and getting my routine going again. Also, probobly walking with the boys to school each morning.
Pennylane824:Hahah, well seeing as Thanksgiving and Christmas are shortly after the baby is born I guess i'll try and eat good most of the time and excercise and really worry about it come January :)
Ha ha this! Oh and walking a good bit around my neighborhood with the baby and my poochy.
walking at least 4x a week with LO and breastfeeding.
I hope to start back up with my hip-hop class in the spring (I had to stop around 5 months). I'd also love to find a Mommy and Me swim class.
Walking with LO in the jogging stroller until we get the OK to do more intense stuff (running, etc).
I have some Post Natal Boot Camp DVD's, and then some kickboxing DVD's I'll graduate to once I find my kickboxing gloves and get a bag for the basement. Eventually I hope to sneak back to the gym to do some weights.
I already told DH we are going to be the clean eating household once all this starts! Thankfully he's good with that.
Good plan in theory, huh? LOL!
I'm studying for my personal trainer certification so I really need to do this so I can get a job! That's some motivation.
i love working out and setting new goals. after ds i ran my first marathon, the nyc marathon (6months post) and it was amazing!! this time, i am running vegas marathon 3months post and doing a half ironman 9months post.
i need things to motivate me and look ahead to =)
