Losing the Baby Weight Can be Tough, But With my Online Support & Accountability Groups, We Can Help Each Other Get Healthy & Fit Together!

Whether it's baby weight that you want to lose, or whether you just want to get rid of some extra pounds, tone and tighten up, or just learn how to live a healthier lifestyle... this challenge group could HELP YOU! (read more below to find out how, exactly these online support and accountability groups work:)

Yay! Only 3 weeks until the doctor's hopefully clear me and give me the "go-ahead" to WORKOUT again! Now, some of you may be wondering... "what the heck is this chick on?... who actually looks FORWARD to working out?"  Well, believe me, if I heard myself saying this a few years ago... I wouldn't believe it either! Even though I was always active in sports when I was younger, once I started having kids, I kind of put my own health and physical activities on the back burner for a while. That's just what us mom's do... we have kids and our lives seem to start revolving around these little humans who suck every little bit of energy we have, right out of us! 

Who knew that deciding to start working out for just 25 minutes a day would actually give me MORE energy to play with my kids and be the fun, energetic mom that I had always wished I could be! Most of us would think that working out would just drain the tiny bit of energy we have left, right out of us... but it couldn't be further from the truth! It's actually the complete opposite, believe it or not! Then I added drinking my daily Shakeology on top of the workouts and it was like redbull for the health-conscious mom with a dose of veggies, vitamins, a boost to my metabolism and no mid-afternoon CRASH!

Okay, so back to where I was originally trying to go with this post... Since I've got 3 weeks until post baby body workouts begin, I've decided to follow the 21 Day Fix meal plans until then (since the program is exactly 3 weeks long).  Then I'm either going with my original love (T25 with my fav trainer: SHAUN T) or I may decide to go *BEAST MODE* so I can start a program that I think my hubby would really enjoy doing with me, since he's more into weight training.  

Now this is where YOU come in! Yes, YOU! If you've read to this point, then I know you want to join me! Since workout programs require discipline, commitment and support, I've decided that between now and August 6th, I'll be accepting people who want to join me on my journey to get my body back where I want it! We can help keep each other motivated and accountable so we don't give up and throw in the towel halfway through!! (or one week in, like most people do when they don't have a support group to help cheer them on!)

So WHOSE WITH ME?  Everything is done from your own house, on your own time and the support group is all done online! So, no excuses! This is perfect if you're bound and determined to lose weight, or just get toned and start living a healthier, happier lifestyle! Be sure to message me if you're interested in reserving a spot! I try to keep them to a minimum so I can really focus on helping each of you achieve your goals!

How to Lose the Baby Weight FAST! My Progress at 3 Weeks Postpartum with Baby #4!

I've been going back and forth on whether or not to share pics of my post baby body at almost 3 weeks postpartum. The message that I want to send is that by staying active, eating healthy and just living a healthy lifestyle while you're pregnant, can make it much easier to get back to your pre baby body afterwards. This was my GO-TO program during my pregnancy this time around, just in case you're curious!

While I'm not close to where I hope to be in a few months, muscle-wise, I can say that I am feeling great and have gained the confidence throughout this journey, to rock a bikini already...whether I'm at my goal weight and size or not! And this is just MY own personal journey and story and by no means am I saying that everyone should be able to bounce right back after a baby...because everyone is unique and has their own personal time frames that are best for them to get back in shape after giving birth! I'm still pretty sore from my c-section and just the thought of a sit-up at this time, is painful! But this is where continued clean eating and breastfeeding can work wonders!

I just want to motivate and inspire those of you who think that it's impossible to get back in shape or get in even better shape than you may have been in, pre baby! It takes self-discipline, motivation, commitment, support and hard-work...but it's so worth it in the long run!!
