Hi ladies, have any of you started to get your pre-baby body back? If so how are you doing it? Diet? Exercise plan? Both? I'm ready to fit back into my jeans!
If you haven't had your little one yet, what are your plans PP to get back into shape?

I have to wait 3 more weeks to get cleared to do anything more than a short, non strenuous walk. That being said I've been on a couple walks the second week but since going off the pain killers I hurt too much! I plan on seeing where I'm at and then figure out if I want to start doing stuff at home or hitting up the trainer...I want to start the machine pilates classes but my doc said I had to ease into it.
I only have 12 more pounds to lose and already look like I didn't have a baby let alone a few weeks ago so if I end up being lazy and wait til after Christmas it won't be the end of the world.
Though I am itching to feel better and get out of this house with DD! I also can't wait to get my new bike so I can go on a bike ride with my boys!
I haven't been cleared to work out yet, I guess I'll have to wait til my 6 week appointment, but I will hopefully get back to doing what I usually do: elliptical and light weights. As soon as I'm cleared I want to do some longish walks with the stroller; our neighborhood is super hilly so it's definitely a workout.
I don't 'diet' but I used to calorie count and am still mindful of what I'm eating; I did it long enough that I don't really need to count to have a rough estimate of what I've eaten in a day. I won't do that until I'm no longer pumping, though.
I am having something healthy to eat at each of her 3 hr feeding cycles like fruit or a yogurt to keep me from ever feeling starving and over eating as a result.. and when the weather and our mood cooperates we have walked our neighborhood, that's only happened twice so far. When the weather turns too cold I will try to get a Pilates session in each day as those also relax me and will help tighten my core. Thats all the thought I have given it so far. My focus for my leave is to enjoy my baby, but I sure don't want the weight to creep back on with the holidays looming.
