I had such a speedy recovery after having Ally, that I felt well enough to do light workouts since she was about 2-3 weeks old. I started with just 15 minutes a day on my elliptical and lengthened it each week. At 6 weeks, I started lifting weights and changed my diet. Tomorrow she will 8 weeks old and this is what I do now.
- full body weights 3x a week, including leg lefts and crunches on the ball and 25 squats and 50 lunges for each leg
- 25-40 minutes on the elliptical every day
- 2 mile run 2x a week
- 30 min-1 hour of Pilates or Kickboxing every week
- salad to replace one meal every day and a healthy, low-calorie, high-fiber breakfast (with a Diet Coke, lol)
Two days ago I finally lost a lb. It is such a fight to lose weight, and it gets harder as you get older.
