Bikini Prep: 13 Weeks out

This past week was crazy, for work we had an all day training and a half day of team building. That is great except that it threw off my whole schedule and eating.  I worked my best to track my macros but felt short this week (not sure if I just let myself slide too…

227 days postpartum or 7.5 months

It is now 7.5 months postpartum and I am loving my progress.  Progress takes commitment, that is 30% in the gym and 70% in the kitchen. What you put in your body matters more than what you do in the gym. For my first 5 months postpartum, I was working out (not as intense) but…
