3 Months Postpartum

When I was pregnant with my son, I had many (and I mean many) people tell me that I would “lose my body” (I’m not sure what that even means). I’m guessing they mean I wouldn’t be able to keep up with my Fitness Goals or something to that extent.
While I do admit my schedule has certainly changed, something that I had committed to myself long before even becoming pregnant was i) to be able to physically keep up with my future children and ii) to also be a continued example of health/wellness for them throughout their life.
Is it challenging? Of course it is! But it was something I had committed to myself and really no alternative but to work it into my schedule consistently. Will there be days you don’t feel like training? Yes there will and, more than likely, there will be a lot of those days but the key is to stay ‪#‎focused‬.
With my STRONG LIKE MOMMY brand, I had a goal of documenting the physical changes of my body by working with photographers at my ‪#‎Prenatal‬ stage and at 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, and 18 months ‪#‎Postnatal‬.
During pregnancy (shot with Dave Laus), I stayed active by consistently lifting weights and a regular metabolic workouts. At month 3 Postnatal (shot with Liana Lauzon), I’m certainly not at my leanest (nor should I have been) but, after my doctor’s consent, I resumed regular exercise activity and strategized my diet to i) keep up with nursing/breastfeeding and ii) begin leaning out for my upcoming photoshoots and projects throughout the year while also increasing training volume and intensity. More or less, I was close to being back to my regular conditioning pre-pregnancy.
At month 6, I was a lot more closer to my regular conditioning pre-pregnancy along with some strength gains on some key lifts. I can’t wait to share this part of my Postnatal Journey next week  🙂
