I think every new momma has one of the same goals: to lose the baby weight! I'm no different, that is certainly on the top of my to-do list. Thankfully I only gained 20 lbs during this pregnancy (and almost 10 of it was all baby!!) but I would like to lose the the baby weight and then some considering I never lost all of the baby weight the first time.
I've always been active, so getting back into the groove of working out will not be the problem. I've already started walking and pre-planning all the awesome workouts I want to try once the doctor says "go for it" at my 6-week checkup. My husband recently became a certified crossfit instructor, so once I do get the okay, I'm going to test those waters... I think I'm really going to need my weekly yoga class to recover from those workouts.. they can be pretty intense. That's good though right?
Anyway, here's the real problem. My eating. I love food, and I really love junk food. As much as I try to eat healthy, I can never deny a cupcake or piece of candy. It's awful, I know. And I know some pretty good bakers, plus I love to bake myself, making things twice as hard.
But, I am on a mission!
I will eat healthy!
...99% of the time. Hey a girl's gotta cheat once in a while, right?
I will stick to my workouts.
I will feel good about myself.
Doing all of the above will make me a better mother/wife/person.
Here are some of my healthy eats this week!! All delicious and super easy to make!
People have been bringing us dinner all week to welcome Baby Ronin and this was a great way to use the leftover chicken from dinner the night before!
These make for such a good snack, only 130 calories in four bites!
I liked them better when they were cold.
I'd love to swap some healthy recipes!
What are some of your faves?
