Eating Clean

I have been much more strict with my eating this week. I already notice a huge difference in how I feel. Some of my staple snacks are green apples and almond butter, grass fed whey protein shake w/ flaxseed oil, hardboiled eggs, and raw nuts. Trying to eliminate simple sugars all together. It can be very tough when you are always hungry and constantly snacking. While breastfeeding you also tend to feel that you never have enough food. I've really been able to track my eating very well with this great online nutrition tracker. It's free to use and very helpful. Thedailyplate.com is what I've been using. I know there are others out there but this one seems to track the foods the easiest with a good amount of detail.

My workout yesterday for 3/19 was raised up a couple notches. Already feeling like my strength is coming back.
Every thing below were Supersets. I am feeling a bit sore in my legs and upper back. Nothing too bad.

1.Leg Press 90lb 10 x 3
Calfs on leg Press 90lb 20 x 3

2. Leg Extensions 50lb 10 x 3
Laying down Leg Curls 25lb 10 x 3 (i have always hated this exercise)

3. Assisted Pull Ups -75lb 8 x 3 (used to be able to do 3-5 pull ups with no assistance right before the pregnancy)
Chest Flys 15lb 10 x 3

4. Bicep Curls 15lb 10 x 3
Tricep Pull down 30lb 10 x 3

5. Military Press 15lb 8 x 2
Crunches on Decline 10 x 2

6. Back Extensions 15 x 2
Plank Hold 60sec x 1 30 sec x 1

Pretty zapped after this workout so did not have the energy for any type of cardio. Only got about 4 hours of sleep because of baby. Since I skipped today all together with working out I am hoping to get a nice kettlebell workout in tomorrow.

What Doctor's don't tell you after a C-section

I have now been through 2 C-sections since writing this blog post and thankfully I've recovered beautifully from both with the appropriate progressions. For those who are new and are just finding me. WELCOME! First let me say I did NOT want a C-section. I did everything in my power to avoid the first and even the second. I'm a kettlebell fitness strength and conditioning coach who relies on her body to share, teach, educate, and I was under the impression that having to give birth via C-section would and could destroy my body and career. Boy was I wrong! If you're feeing the same way, start by reading this article I wrote many years ago that still applies today! Many people have asked and here is part of my experience.  I don't claim to be a medical expert but not only have I successfully healed my C-section, my abdominals are no longer numb, and I've successfully helped others who've had multiple C-sections (even some 20 years ago) find their core aga

5 Year Blog Anniversary and Giveaway

My blog was born March 10th of 2007, 5 years ago, with this  post  that started it all.  It all started 6 weeks after giving birth to my first baby.  The purpose of this blog was to share my journey of embarking as a new mother recovering from a C-section, lost strength, and fitness.  I wanted to share my struggles and perseverance in getting back to my pre-pregnancy self all while enjoying my new road in to motherhood.  I felt this was an easy and convenient way for friends and family that live all over the world, to see photos of my children and updates about our life.  What an amazing experience it  has been for me.  I never thought blogging my experiences would turn in to so much more.  Through my blogging I got the chance to connect with so many wonderful people around the world.  I never fully understood how powerful the stories would effect so many people.   It's truly been an honor.  Being able to continue to drive motivation and hope in to someones life by sharing my life
