We are done having babies. We may adopt one more in the future but, this momma after another onset of preeclampsia and delivering 4 weeks early is done. Doctor told us it will more than likely happen again and sooner the next time. Scary!
With that being said we have been blessed with two perfect little girls and it's time for the personal trainer in me to get my body back. I am going to track my progress, workouts, training schedules, and meals (mostly vegan, juices, and smoothies).
I am no longer a certified personal trainer and this is in no way a workout program for everyone. I firmly believe that each individual needs a personalized workout program. This is to motivate moms to get off their butts and change their lives, give ideas, websites, books and other information that can help mommies achieve their goals. I highly recommend personal training with a qualified experienced trainer but, not all of us can afford that. Me included. Here are my starting photos 1 week out from delivery. Get ready, get set, go.
This week will simply be a list of good reads since my workout will consist of walks, planks, wall sits, bridges and corrective exercises. I'm not cleared to workout for 5 more weeks so it will be a slow start.
