My son is 7 weeks old now which means it’s time to get down to business –
losing the baby weight.
For me it’s really important to get back to my pre-pregnancy weight before I get pregnant again. And if you’ve been following my blog for a while, you know that that’s usually in a year or less. It might be a little more than a year this time. But we’ll see. 🙂 But I’ve done it with my first two kids and now it’s time for round three.
Isn’t he so cute??
And I want to do the baby weight loss journey with you!
I want to form a team of support to help us all get healthy and fit together. And maybe you don’t have extra weight to lose. Maybe you just want a healthier lifestyle. Definitely still join me!
I’m going to be very real with you as I post about my weight loss. I’m going to start posting every other Friday about how I’m doing along with other tips on how I lose weight the healthy way so that it stays off (until I get pregnant again. 🙂 ) Hey we want a lot of kids so we need to get them here fast! I’ll be posting about counting calories, green smoothies, motivation, healthy recipes, and exercise.
Ok, the being real part.
I have 18 pounds to lose. Which isn’t too bad.
I’m planning on losing one pound a week. So my goal is to have all the weight gone by September 5th. So right after swimsuit season. Nice.
Now your goal can be shorter or longer. Totally up to you. This is just what I need to do.
And to start off today, I’m sharing with you what I’ll be doing to exercise.
I just found out about this new website called Method 5 Fitness. You do have to join it, it’s not free. It’s $20 a month, but you can do a free trial to see if you like it.
Here’s what I love about it:
They have tons of videos to choose from of lots of different work outs.
And you can choose how long you want to work out. 15 minutes to an hour. They have core training, resistance training, yoga, kick boxing, cardio dance, etc. And you can choose by what equipment you have as well.
You can do this from home.
If you’re a busy mom like me, you don’t have tons of time to get to the gym and childcare is super pricey. So you can do this in the comfort of your own home. And this can get your kids involved! My girls like to dress up like princesses and dance with me, stretch, and do the moves.
It’s really cute.
They have programs already set up for you.
If you don’t want to choose what to do or aren’t sure what are the best videos for your goals, they have programs already set up for you! I just did the weight loss program and added it to my calendar on the site. One of the classes in the weight loss is for a treadmill. But I don’t have a treadmill so I just delete those and add something else. The calendar part is awesome because you can add, delete, and move things around as you choose.
They email you your workout.
Each morning in my inbox I get an email with a link to my workout for the day. It’s awesome because I can just click and go!
There are 8 nutrition classes by a certified dietitian. And they’re only 5-10 minutes long each which is totally doable.
They also have a 28 day challenge complete with meals and recipes! And even if you don’t want to do the challenge, it’s a great resource for healthy meals and snacks. I know that’s something I struggle with. I just don’t know what the healthiest things are.
You can join a team (please join mine!) and share with each other the videos you do and what you thought about them. You can add notes to the team too. I find it’s easier to do it when you have people you are doing it with and are accountable to.
So if you want to join me on this weight loss and being fit journey,
join my team on Method 5 Fitness!
The team is Learn to be Fit and the code to join is 216.
At least give the 10 day free trial a try and see if you like it. Just go to settings and join my team!
I’m loving the workouts so far! I’m usually sore after I do them which I love because it means I did something to create change and worked hard. I can’t wait to do this with you!
