I’m 5 months in after having my bub and its time to shift this
nutella baby weight, so I’m joining my sister Trish over at A Dream House for Trish for a weekly link up on being fit and healthy.
Growing up my sister was a personal trainer and nutritionist so I spent many years (from a little girl upward) in a gym doing her classes and this lead too being a bit of a gym junkie in my teens and early twenties. I went 6 days a week without even thinking about it, some days doing double classes. I LOVED it!
|Me at 23|
At 26 I moved to the Hunter Valley and just couldn't find a gym and instructors that I felt I really gelled with and then got lazy and inconsistent with my workouts and with my nutrition.
it wasn't until 3 months before I fell pregnant last year that I started going to the gym with my niece and we started doing the Jamie Eason Live Fit program from bodybuilding.com that I really got back into the swing of things. The only thing that really held me back was as per usual my nutrition. I have a serious sugar addiction, can NOT say no to nibbles and like to have a drink on the weekends. So I got stuck into my training and go some great results and then found out I was pregnant. I kept training up until 20 weeks but after that I stopped and my nutrition went COMPLETELY out the window. Now….its not a great deal better and I’m still 8kgs over what I’d like to be.
To try and keep on track I’ve been making some healthy snacks like choc cashew bliss balls from the I Quit Sugar Website and have been menu planning each week before I go grocery shopping. I’ve also purchased a second hand treadmill so that I don’t have to work around Marty’s shifts or the weather to get a walk or a run in and have found some at home workouts I can do on pinterest.
I have to admit that this first one is the only one I've tried so far and I though I was going to pass out on the spot afterwards.....
So please feel free to join our link up and we can help each other reach our health and fitness goals for this year!
