Another little quickie


I'm all all fired up this morning because I am headed to the mountains this evening. That's right, it's snowboard season.  This is what I use to LIVE for. If I didn't have a baby right now I would have hit the slopes the second the mountain opened. Ben and I will be going up there with Lyla. So we will have to take turns taking runs. So with all my excited energy I wanted to get in a quickie workout before getting in the car heading to slopes.

Here it goes!

Double Cleans 12kg's  10x

Last season I had just had Lyla and there was barely any snow left. Remember I'm in southern cali.  Here is a pic of me hitting the slopes as soon as doctors gave me clearance since I had a C-section. I got 2 hours total in for the whole season.  8-(    Yay for today!!!

We're in Nor Cal and heading up to Boreal for snowboarding tomorrow. The snow isn't great, but there's enough for me, my husband, and my boys to have a great time for the day!

Hope you had a fabulous time!

Leslie,

Nice! I'm sure you will have a fabulous time. Heard Mammoth has some good snow right now. I will try and make a trip to Mammoth at least once this year. Never heard of Boreal, is that near Tahoe?

Howie,

Thank you. It's weird though. When I do them my back cracks big time. They are definitely challenging. I think I just need to do some GTG with them so it will be more fluid.

Hope you had fun!

Thank you! I feel so much better now that I got some riding out of my system. It was fun but short!

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
