I wanted to use the 16kg no matter what!

Today I decided it's time to go a little heavier with some of the exercises. I haven't been posting my workouts, since there has not been any consistency with my training, due to various reasons.

Trying to go heavier without training much is not always the smartest thing. But I felt if I can keep my form for 1 rep then that is good enough for me today! So I was prepared to not even be able to do one

Here is my short training

A. Turkish Get Up 16kg 1 rep on each arm 4 set ( little wobbly at first but did it with success!)
Snatches 16kg 6 reps on each arm 4 sets

Total 8 TGU's and 48 Snatches. Took longer breaks, 2-4 minutes, so I can have perfect form each time.

B. Push ups on Bosu upside down 10 reps 3 sets
Pistol Holds (held for 5 seconds at the bottom and came up with 2 legs) 8kg 2 reps 3 sets

Morning weight was 111.2lb and 19.1% body fat. Still breastfeeding, so not sure how accurate the body fat scale is if I am walking around with lots of milk. I think it's time for me to do a caliper body fat or hydrostatic weighing.

Tomorrow's workout will be more isolation of muscle groups, due to the fact that I WANT to put some size on my body, meaning muscle mass. Will post the body building type workout tomorrow.

I wouldn't stress about the body fat percentage until you're done nursing. Good for you for keeping with breast feeding! (And for swinging and lifting so heavy - ouch!)

Take you BF at different times of the day and average out. My BF is always highest in the morning (of course I get up at 4:15am, that's really early!)

Usually it's around 20% first thing,( that's before "bathroom time"), 11:00am it's 17-19%, and around 4-5:00pm, its the lowest 15-17%.

As you know alot of things affect the reading, so play with it!

Yes I am still hanging in there with the nursing. It definitely has not been easy, time wise, since I am working more now. But I am some how managing to keep up with it.


Good idea. I didn't realize the scale could differ THAT much from morning until afternoon. I will try that the next couple days. I'm excited to see the difference!

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
