All my life I’ve been in pretty good shape, but I 没有’t start working out until college. I liked the way lifting weights helped turn my 瘦的 body into a stronger, more muscular shape. In the six months before I got pregnant, I was working out with a 培训师 a couple times a week, doing a couple days of cardio, and eating pretty clean.
I read this book during my pregnancy, “The Girlfriends Guide to Pregnancy”, that said regarding the weight loss, “nine months up, nine months down.” But I 没有’t want to believe that. Not me, I thought smugly. I’ll be back in 6 months!
Last weekend, we went to the beach. I wore a bikini and 没有’t feel embarrassed. I still am not down to my pre-pregnancy weight- 5 pounds to go, but I’m honestly not concerned with that. I’m more focused now on gaining muscle, and increasing my cardio.
We want to have another baby in the future, so hopefully, I will do pregnancy a little better next time- so that I feel better and enjoy it more! I would love to hear from you and what worked for you, what 没有’t, how you felt about being pregnant, and any other tips you might want to share.更新： As of May 2015, I’我参加第二届全国人大比基尼比赛的培训。您可以在这里关注我最近的帖子：
