Baby Body

Hey Self Soul Spacers, I'm back! Did you miss me?   The last five weeks with baby Veronica have been amazing.  I love being able to give her, Jordan, and Mia my undivided attention.  Not much has changed here, still cooking healthy meals, with new recipes to come in the future!!  Fortunately, I was cleared this week to get back to the fitness part of my healthy living journey.  I'm sure many of you are curious, how much weight did I gain, what does my body look like, what will my workout schedule look like???  If you're like me, I hate seeing the big pregnancy belly photo as the comparison photo to the fit body photo... It's not realistic.

Here are my numbers and photos...
My first pregnancy appointment, I weighed 130lbs.
My final pregnancy appointment (2 days before delivery), I weighed 151lbs.
Today, 4/7/14, I weigh 138lbs.
Pre-pregnancy body (6/16/13)

One week before delivery (2/22/14)

5 weeks after delivery (4/6/14)

What will my workout plan consist of???
I have not officially worked out or taught since January 30.  So, I have some catching up to do.  I will start teaching my 2 Les Mills BodyFlow class again starting the week of 4/21 (join me).  I will run 3 days a week, while adding some other at home workouts, like p90x on my non-run or teaching days.  I will continue to eat healthy and drink tons of water, and since I am breastfeeding I will not be doing any crazy cleanses.  I will keep you posted on my progress.  Will it be easy? No!  But I am doing this for me, and my family... A healthy mama, is a happy mama!  


  1. I love the name Veronica! And I am very excited to track your progress on getting back to your pre-baby weight! I bet you will get there in no time! :-)


    1. Thank you AJ! It's going to be tough, but I'm going to try... I appreciate your encouragement! P.s. Once I'm back, I'll need some new mommy clothes
