{Post-Baby Workout}



There is nothing better than fitting into your non-maternity clothes after your baby arrives, but if you're anything like me, it definitely doesn't happen overnight.  The first few weeks postpartum were great...The pounds were just melting away, and I was thrilled...Until that weight loss came to a screeching halt.  I knew it was too good to be true to think that ALL of the pregnancy weight would just magically disappear. ;)





It was time to get my tail in gear...My doctor gave me the green light at 4 weeks to start incorporating light exercise back into my routine, and I gave my body a good 6 weeks to recover from labor and delivery before I started any hard core workouts.  After 4 weeks, I started walking on the treadmill again at a medium speed and high incline.  This was a great way to ease back into working out, and it felt good to get back into the swing of things.





After a couple weeks of only working out on the treadmill, I could tell it was time to amp up my workout regimen and add weights back into my daily routine.  How in the world was I going to do that with a baby at home and no time to spend two hours in a gym?





Enter Jillian Michaels and her "30 Day Shred" workout DVD...

I highly recommend this workout for new moms and moms-to-be for so many reasons.  I loved this workout when I was pregnant {I just went a little lighter with the weights}, and it has proven to be the workout of choice to help me shed those post-baby pounds.




Here's why I love this workout:




  1. It's 30 minutes.  Easy to do in the comfort of my own home while the baby is napping.

  2. It consists of 3 levels of workouts based on the intensity that you desire.  Start with Level 1, and when you're ready, move on to Level 2 and then 3.

  3. It's a combination of strength, cardio and abs, so you're getting a full body workout in a short amount of time.

  4. All you need is a mat or comfortable surface and your hand weights.

  5. It's only $9.99.  Click here to purchase.



Whether you're a new mom or just in need of a new workout, this DVD is for you.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I do, and here's to shedding those unwanted pounds and feeling good this summer!!
