Back on Track

Today is the day that all the regular gym goers groan as the crowd of good intentions enters for the first time since the end of January 2016 when they gave up on their resolutions, am I right? But in all seriousness, I feel motivated and rejuvenated in January to get my life back on track after Christmas. Don’t you?

Of course I have plans to finally clean out our spare room and turn it in to my office and purge my closet again and what not. But my main focus right now? Getting my body back! I spend last year as a pregnant vessel to grow a healthy baby and I was totally fine with that. But now that she is here, I want my body back! And if I am being honest, I had several pounds to lose before I got pregnant! I am not putting pressure on myself with numbers or a time frame for my ultimate goal weight…but I would like to finish shedding the extra pounds to at least get back down to my pre-pregnancy weight in the next few months.

My goal for January is to join the thousands across the country for another round of Whole 30. I completed my first round last year and it worked really well for me. I lost weight, I felt great and I got my eating back under control. You can read some of my posts on it hereΒ and here. And if you want to see some of the recipes that I enjoyed last time and plan to use this time as well, you can see those here.

My six week postpartum appointment isn’t until the middle of January. As you all know, I had a c section so I am still recovering. I wont be adding workouts in until I am cleared.

Whether you are getting back on track with your health and fitness, or getting your life back in order…Link up with Amy and I today and every Tuesday for the month of January and get Back on Track!!!

    I’ve half-assed Whole30 twice before & plan on doing a 3rd round this year but not until after I move. I am excited to follow along with you & Amy though to get inspired.

    You were so disciplined with Whole30 the first time around, I have no doubt you’ll kick ass this time (and with your fitness goals once you’re cleared to work out again). It might be a cliche time of year but I feel the same way about starting fresh, and I think the fact that you just had a baby and are ready to get your health and fitness in check makes it the perfect time for you. Good luck!

    YAY for you!!! I’ve never done WHole 30. I’m currently doing Jenny Craig–blog post soon–and I’m loving it. I love that we all have options that work with our lives!

    Sounds like you got a plan and that is huge! We are going to rock this out my friend. Looking forward to the journey with you!

    I’m so with you girl! I told Mark the other day we are cleaning out our pantry and living room. Here is to healthy eating and working out at home for me!

    When I get back on blogging schedule, I’m totally joining in with this link up. Perfect for the beginning of the year

    You go momma!!! πŸ™‚ Take it easy on yourself, c-section recovery is no joke! But I know you’ll be kicking butt again in no time!

  • Reply Kate @ Green Fashionista January 3, 2017 at 11:36 am

    You’ve got this gurlie! I felt exactly the same way after my c-section to welcome baby girl. You are amazing, and my biggest advice is once you’re cleared for workouts again to take it slow. I eased back into my workout routine after my 6 week appointment, and am still not at full steam. But becoming active again feels amazing, and the best part are the home workouts where you can watch baby girl sleeping while sweating it out. Happy New Year sweet friend and fellow new momma <3

    Please, for the love of everything holy, do not stress about getting your pre-pregnancy weight back in any specific time frame. You grew a human. YOU GREW A HUMAN. That’s a lot of stress. And everything is different now. I’m not saying you can’t do it–you absolutely can–but do not pressure yourself to do it within a few months. It might take longer than that and you don’t want to get discouraged.

    Haha so funny that you said that about the gym but I was pleasantly surprised my spin class was packed!! Wishing you lots of luck with this go around of whole30 – you did it once so you know you can do it again! xo, Biana –BlovedBoston

    I definitely need to join y’all on Tuesdays! We’re not doing Whole30, but we’re hoping to get healthier this year by meal planning and working out again!
