Workout from Home
Before I got pregnant, I was lucky enough the find some of the best at home workouts to help me get rid of that extra baby weight. However, I didn’t realize how lucky I really was until someone asked me a very good question. She asked me where my children are when I do my crazy workouts and how I find the time to get to the gym. It is a fact that time is the number one barrier to sticking to a fitness program. If there is one thing I have learned after the birth of my second child is that there definitely aren’t enough hours in a day. I thought it was tough with one, but now I can totally understand why moms just can’t find the time to get to the gym.
My Get Fit after Baby Workout
The INSANITY workout and home fitness program is by far the most challenging workout program I have ever done. But, it is also my favorite. Initially, I thought P90X would be my post-partum workout routine that would get me back into my “skinny jeans”. I have no doubt that it would have done the job. However, INSANITY promised it in 60 days while P90X wanted an additional 30. Yes, you read that right. Shaun T, the creator of INSANITY, promised to get me in the best shape of my life (my interpretation: back into my pre-pregnancy jeans) in 60 days. Even more important, all the workouts range from 30-55 minutes. Time is something I don’t have a lot of these days with two kids so the shorter the better.
The Healthiest Meal of the Day!
Okay, so I have to tell you about this Shakeology® supplement that my husband and I have been taking for quite awhile now. I have never been a huge supplement guru. One, I’m stingy with my money and two, some of those things have crazy ingredients. However, it was introduced to me almost a year ago. It has kind of become my secret little weapon to keeping my weight down and my energy up. I really can't say enough about it. With Shakeology®, I was able to get my body fat % down to 17% before I got pregnant. That is something I was never able to do no matter how much I tortured myself.
